A medical pedicure provides the safest pedicure option for people with compromised immune systems and other medical conditions, like diabetes, that would delay their ability to heal in the event of injury to their skin. While non-medical pedicures at Pure Peninsula Spa are still performed under sterile and clean conditions, our medical pedicures are tailored to the clients needs for skin, nail and callus care with use of enzymes and masques instead of harsher tools.
During a medical pedicure, the nail technician will review with you your concerns for your feet and nails as well as any medical conditions you have indicated on your intake form. Based on the information you provide, the nail technician can help you customize a pedicure package that will safely care for your feet during your service. As part of the assessment, the nail technician will evaluate your feet for signs of the following:
- Possible infection (e.g., bacterial, fungal, or viral).
- Possible skin conditions (e.g., calluses, corns, skin irritations or open wounds).
- Possible nail abnormalities (e.g., thickened toenails, ingrown toenails, discolored toenails).
After the foot and nail assessment, the nail technician will soak your feet for a shortened period of time, to soften your toenails and skin, but prevent microscopic skin breaks that could open you to infection. This type of attention to detail, personalized assessment and expert care level are the keys to making these pedicures the safest option for our more at-risk clients.
