Medical pedicure – step to beauty and health

Head of Product and Brand Management.
My direction is beauty industry trends, new development strategies.

In the previous article, STALEKS PRO talked about hygienic pedicure – the procedure of nails caring on the feet and skin of the feet.  Today we will talk about another type of pedicure, medical, and its features.

Medical pedicure is aimed not so much at aesthetics as at health. With it, you can solve problems such as dry skin, ingrown toenails, foot fungus, calluses, corns and much more.

Let’s discuss in more detail?

When does medical pedicure apply?

A medical pedicure is a method of treating and preventing diseases of the nails and feet, and only then a hygienic procedure.  This manipulation is carried out by a specialist with medical education (chiropodist) in a clinic or salon, as well as a manicure and pedicure technician with appropriate specialization.

Special techniques and professional tools are used for a medical pedicure.

Medical pedicure also solves cosmetic and hygiene problems.  This procedure is practiced when:

  • diabetes, dermatological lesions;
  • ingrown nail problems;
  • dense formations (corns, calluses, deep cracks) that can not be removed by yourself with pumice;
  • deformation and other nail changes;
  • fungal infection of the lower extremities, peeling and itching, excessive sweating.

Upon careful study of the client’s foot, a chiropodist is obliged to accurately identify the problem and propose a comfortable and safe solution.

The main signs of feet problem

The legs are constantly experiencing stress when walking, so over time, outgrowths are formed.  They not only deliver an aesthetic inconvenience, but also can cause pain, fatigue.

The causes of corns and calluses:

  • wearing poor-quality and uncomfortable shoes – also leads to deformation of the foot;
  • prolonged stress on the legs (standing work, weights lifting);
  • overweight or metabolic disorders in the body.

In the case of significant changes in the appearance of the nails, you should talk about the fungal disease of the feet:

  • nail plates are deformed or changed their usual color;
  • skin is too dry, it has redness, itches.

Experts in such cases recommend not only the use of drugs and vitamin complexes, but also sign up for a medical pedicure.

To fully recover the health of the feet, several medical procedures and high qualifications of the technician will be required.

STALEKS PRO recommendations

Each manicure and pedicure technician should ensure their client’s safety. After all, always when performing procedures, there is not only the risk of injuries, but also infections with fungal and other infections.

Non-sterile tools can be a significant source of problems. Competent sterilization and disinfection of tools from STALEKS PRO is a guarantee of safety and hygiene.

We recommend not only sterilize tools and store them in individual Kraft bags, but also use disposable items. For example – nail and foot files with replaceable abrasive. The steel base is not damaged during sterilization, and the disposable abrasive file can be easily removed after the procedure.

Your clients will appreciate that you make a pedicure with a new foot or nail file. Such a tool always looks aesthetically pleasing, and most importantly – meets all safety conditions.
