A medical pedicure is the removal of hard, thick skin and reduction of nails performed by a qualified, registered Podiatrist. Instruments used are sterilised to the Allied Health Standards using a benchtop steriliser. The use of sterilised instruments reduces the risk of infection and cross contamination.
During a medical pedicure your clinician will:
- Trim and file all nails using sterilised equipment. Any thickened nails will be thinned with our electric file.
- Removal of hard skin and debris down the side of the nail.
- Remove all hard skin using a sterile, single use scalpel blade.
- Smooth the skin using a single-use sanding disc.
- Treat any splits or cracks in the skin, often using a hydrating dressing
- Provide advice regarding prevention of splits & cracks
- Apply a top of the line cream to leave your skin feeling soft and hydrated
- Provide advice regarding best skin and nail care to maintain that medi-pedi feeling long after you have left the clinic.
