Medical Pedicures involve removal of corns and calluses, deep exfoliation and a relaxing foot massage - your feet will thank you!
what is a medical pedicure?
This is the foot treatment to choose if you’re looking for a thorough overhaul of your feet. Performed by our podiatrists, the Medical Pedicure is an intensive, non-invasive treatment which ensures both the health and beauty of your feet. It combines all elements of our special Podiatry services with the safe removal of corns, calluses, and hard, dry skin.
We recommend a Medical Pedicure every 8-10 weeks for happy and healthy feet.
What happens during a medical pedicure?
After the safe removal of corns, calluses, and hard, dry skin, we follow with a routine pedicure where toenails are shaped, buffed and cut, together with a cuticle treatment; deep exfoliation and a relaxing foot massage. The treatment leaves your feet looking and feeling healthy, attractive and revitalised. The procedure is performed on a dry foot to ensure exceptionally long lasting results and uses a range of professional foot products to suit the patient’s skin type.
What is the difference between a Medical Pedicure and a Salon Pedicure?
In contrast to a regular pedicure, our Medical Pedicure uses specialised tools that have been sterilised in between treatments to 134 degrees. The tools used in a salon pedicure will be sterilised in bright blue barbicide or a similar product. However, podiatrists will use an autoclave sterilisation chamber to clean their blades and drill immediately after use for superior hygiene.
Also, because a medical pedicure is performed on dry feet there is no risk of infection arising from a shared footbath. Hygiene or sanitation standards cannot always be guaranteed in popular nail salons. With a higher turnover, standards tend to decrease and the likelihood of fungal infections, cross-contamination or ingrown nails (due to poor cutting) increases.
Medical pedicures have long lasting results - moisturise every night and you’ll enjoy healthy and gorgeous feet for up to 8-10 weeks.
