Our Medi-Pedis are designed to pamper the feet while using sanitary techniques.
As a podiatrist I do not encourage patients, especially diabetics, to have pedicures performed at their local nail salons where proper sterilization techniques aren’t being used. In an attempt to allow patients to have their feet not only feel their best but also look their best, I’ve created a medical pedicure sanctuary where patients can relax and enjoy the luxury of a good pedicure without worrying about the cleanliness or possible problems that may arise from poor technique and sterilization methods.
Our staff is well trained and all treatments are supervised by Dr. Alexander.
Do’s and Dont’s of a good pedicure
- When trimming nails, use a toenail clipper with a straight edge to ensure your toenail is cut straight across. Manicure scissors or fingernail clippers increase the risk of ingrown toenails because of their small, curved shape. See a podiatrist if you have a tendency to develop ingrown toenails.
- If you choose to have pedicures at a nail salon, try to schedule your pedicure first thing in the morning. Salon foot baths are typically cleanest earlier in the day.
- Leave moisture between toes. Any moisture between the toes can become a breeding ground for athlete’s foot or a fungal infection.
- Did you know that your cuticles act as a barrier against bacteria? Don’t cut into cuticles and avoid having them pushed back. Damage to the cuticles can lead to infection and also cause them to get thicker.
