A medical pedicure is footcare performed by a podiatrist in a safe and sterile environment.
Podiatrists treat many different issues with the feet. A common presentation we see are people who are no longer able to safely attend to their own feet or would prefer to have their footcare performed by a foot expert than in a nail salon.
At Well Heeled Podiatry we can help with a range of routine foot and nail concerns, such as ingrown toe nails, corns, callus, nail care, thick and discoloured nail care and nails that have changed appearance due to trauma.
We also offer KeryFlex, a healthier, safer and more durable alternative to nail salons and acrylic nails.
The KeryFlex resin creates a flexible, but durable, non-porous nail that allows the remaining natural nail underneath to grow.
It is made from a medical grade resin impregnated with the hydroxypyridone antifungal ingredient Piroctone.
Why Choose A Medical Pedicure Over A Nail Salon?
Where podiatry differs to a nail salon is that we are bound by sterilisation standards to disinfect our instruments to 134 degrees celsius in an autoclave machine, for a minimum of 15 minutes.
This ensures we eliminate any bacteria, viruses and even the smallest of fungal spores. Our autoclaves are also serviced annually to provide the best sanitary environment for our patients.
Podiatrist are also bound by strict infection control standards to make sure we do not pass on any infections or transmittable diseases.
We are experienced foot specialist that are able to assess and diagnose any abnormalities in the feet. This can include skin lesions, circulation issues, nerve damage, and other underlying health concerns that may present in the feet.
