Safe Medical Pedicures!

Safe Medical Pedicures
Medical Pedicures are performed by a doctor. As part of a medical pedicure, the doctor performs a routine foot exam, then nail care with sterile instruments. Grady Podiatry provides strict medical sterilization of all the instrumentation that is used.

Medical Pedicures are great for diabetics and those with poor circulation. We do not cut your cuticles. Cuticles are like eyelashes: we need them to keep dirt and germs outside of the body where they belong. As part of the medical pedicure, we soften the cuticles to improve their appearance. We also soften and safely file away dead dry skin with a single-use foot file.

Included in the medical pedicure is a soothing and muscle relaxing treatment with a steamed towel. This is safer and more hygienic than a foot soak. In addition to shaping and filing the nails and removing dead skin and calluses, you can choose to have non-toxic antifungal nail polish applied to your toenails.

The medical pedicure treatment consists of the following:

  • Provide strict medical sterilization of all the instrumentation that is used.
  • Hydrotherapy treatment with steam towels with occlusive wrap.
  • A medical evaluation of your feet by a podiatrist.
  • Mechanical debridement of all corns, callouses, fissures, etc.
  • Trimming and reduction of nails, including debridement of thick or ingrown nails.
  • A massage in order to restore your skin and aid circulation.
