Getting to the foot of the problem
Corns, callouses and bunions can occur when your feet are put under intense pressure. When we use shoes that are too small, the lack of air can lead to fungal skin infections. Your nails may also chip off, leading to ingrown toenails. These conditions are painful and aesthetically displeasing.
Medical pedicure (Medi-Pedi) and traditional pedicures
Most medi-pedi not done in a professional podiatry facility do not treat feet with medical problems. Medical Pedicure, also known as Medi-Pedi, is a treatment that is performed by a qualified foot specialist, or podiatrist. Medi-Pedi treats conditions such as:1) thick or damaged nails, 2) ingrown toenails, 3) plantar warts, 4) blisters, 5) callouses, 6) corns, 7) cracked heels and 8) athlete’s foot (right). This is suitable for people with embarrassing foot problems, diabetic feet, and those who want to regain beautiful and blemish-free feet. Medi-Pedi is done in a clinic and is thus hygienic.
This treatment can fully reconstruct your damaged toenail by using a flexible resin (left). It is suitable for dancers, athletes and people with diabetic feet and other foot problems.
