Most of us spend a lot of time on our feet, so it’s important to take care of them. Treat and help prevent common toenail conditions with a medical pedicure.
More Than Nail Cutting
Performed by a certified foot care specialist, a medical pedicure differs from a salon pedicure. First, you’ll experience a thorough foot, nail and skin evaluation to identify rough skin on heels, corns, ingrown toenails, or thick and hard nails. Medical-grade, sterilized equipment will be used to remove hard skin and corns on your feet as well as trim and shape your toenails. Performed in a private room, these pain-free techniques are often more sanitary than nail care performed at home.
Levels of Nail Care
Basic Nail Care: Includes trimming, sanding, and thinning of thickened nails as well as treating mild calluses and removing corns from two to three areas. Ideal for those who obtain footcare every six to twelve weeks. Cost is $50.
- Foot Care: Includes everything in the basic nail care as well as removing corns from four to five areas. Ideal for those who have gone longer than twelve weeks between foot care but less than six months. Cost is $75.
- Foot Care Plus: Includes everything in the basic nail care treatment as well as advanced sanding of calluses and removal of corns. Ideal for those receiving footcare for the first time or if it’s been longer than six months since your last appointment. Cost is $100.
All medical pedicures are paid for out-of-pocket and will not be submitted to insurance.
Is a medical pedicure right for me?
While anyone can benefit, most of the time medical pedicures are suggested for those who spend a lot of time on their feet or have a difficult time caring for their feet at home. Those who suffer from an underlying condition such as diabetes, cancer, or another autoimmune disease are great candidates.
