Medical Pedicure

Medical pedicure - A podiatrist working on the foot of a female patient.

At our Fairfax Road clinic we offer a comprehensive range of foot care treatments including medical pedicure. Our professional podiatrists carry out this treatment which is renowned for creating the perfect sole.

Using specialised tools we are able to tackle the most problematic of feet, tackling corns, calluses, hard and dry skin with this non-invasive treatment.

In contrast to a regular pedicure, our medical pedicure is performed on a dry foot. This ensures exceptionally long lasting results.

We also pay close attention to toenails and cuticle treatments, which leave your feet feeling brand new.

What is a Medical Pedicure?

A full medical pedicure is performed by our highly skilled foot care specialists. We take care to focus on the hygienic and aesthetic care of the toenails as well as the soles.

Standards exceed OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration). This means all our equipment is sterilised between treatments. Great care is taken to ensure a clean and safe environment is provided to our clients.

What should I expect during a medical pedicure?

We start by first removing any corns, calluses, and hard or dry skin. We follow this up with toenail trimming, cuticle treatment and buffing of the nails to provide a fresh healthy look.

Although this is dry treatment, we use a range of professional foot products to suit the patient’s skin type.

Once we are happy all excess has been removed, we then provide deep exfoliation while performing a relaxing foot massage.

We will also check the feet as we go, to ensure there is no underlying issues that we need to be aware of, such as biomechanics problems.

Unlike a standard pedicure, a medical pedicure provides longer lasting results. Moisturise every night and you’ll enjoy healthy and gorgeous feet for up to 8-10 weeks.

What are the benefits of a medical pedicure?

Ill managed feet can cause a multitude of problems in the proximal joints, such as in the ankles, knees, spine and hips.

Spending long hours on your feet or wearing ill-fitting shoes can cause hard skin to build up affecting your stride. This causes pressure points on your feet to become sore.

Removing these affected areas and maintaining good healthy feet, can have a positive effect on your whole body.

Medical pedicures look at different aspects of your feet including the condition of your skin and even the bones underneath, which your average high street salon simply cannot provide.

You also benefit in one to one care and high hygiene standards, unlike salons where you may be treated in one room, with other clients. The level of service is far greater.

All our medical pedicures are done using specialised tools that have been sterilised in between treatments to 134 degrees.

Is it safe to get a pedicure if you have diabetes?

Unlike most people, diabetes sufferers need to be especially careful about protecting their feet. For this reason, we would advise any diabetic to seek our professional medical pedicure over the standard high street “pedi” salon.

Here, you can be confident that there is little risk of infection and our podiatrist can offer advice and refer you to our diabetic foot checks at the clinic.

We also offer various topical treatments and cryosurgery and therefore recommend clients to seek treatments and checks at least once a year with us to ensure optimal foot care. There are many more problems of the feet that we treat. If yours is not listed on our main menu, please contact us.

At The Foot Clinic, we care for your feet using the most advanced technology and contemporary podiatry techniques available to restore your feet to full health and as part of our services we also offer home visits.
