Medical Pedicures

What is a Medical Pedicure?

Medical pedicures are growing in popularity across the UK and for good reason! Medical pedicures, sometimes also known as “medi pedi’s” are gaining attention because they offer the best of both worlds when it comes to foot health and aesthetic care. Unlike a regular pedicure from a nail salon, a medical pedicure is performed by a fully trained and qualified clinician that focuses on finding, treating and preventing foot conditions as well as making your feet look and feel amazing.

The techniques used in a medical pedicure go way beyond simple cosmetic enhancements; it will also work to care for specific foot issues such as:


– Nail and cuticle care
– Callus and corn removal
– Cracked heel treatment
– Hard skin removal
– Fungal infection treatment
– Verruca care advice


Medical pedicures can also be very beneficial to those that are already prone foot related issues, such as athletes, Dog walkers, diabetics and those with an active lifestyle.

The benefits of a Medical Pedicure

There are several benefits that come alongside having a medical pedicure, these include: 

Foot condition management: Your medical pedicure will be carried out by a fully trained clinician, meaning they can also manage and treat a wide range of foot conditions that regular pedicure shops can not. In treating foot conditions such as ingrown toenails, corns and fungal infections, you will find relief from the pain and discomfort associated with them. Therapeutic techniques used in the massage and moisturisation of your feet can also help to ease the pain of more serious foot conditions such as plantar fasciitis and arthritis in the feet.

Preventative care: The main focus of a medical pedicure is preventing foot issues before they arise. Identifying the early signs of a foot condition and taking the necessary steps to prevent it is the best way to take care of your feet, as maintaining good foot health is much easier than treating a foot problem. 

Improved nail and cuticle health:  Medical pedicures prioritise accurate nail-cutting techniques to avoid ingrown toenails and potential foot nail problems. We will also take care of your cuticles without cutting them, as this can cause infection.
 
Diabetic foot care: People who have diabetes are more susceptible to foot complications, so it is essential that foot care is done correctly. With a medical pedicure, it provides the opportunity for not only a little pampering on your feet but also regular monitoring from a trained podiatrist. This can be vital in preventing ulceration and infection. We can also provide some tips and advice for the best home care practices to avoid foot problems.
 
Athlete-focused foot care: By addressing sports-related foot problems, medical pedicures are able to tailor your treatment to the type of care that you need. Whether that be blisters, calluses or toenail injuries, we can help you get back to peak performance.

These are just a few of the many benefits that come along with a medical pedicure; if you’re interested in how we could help you, book an appointment with us.

At your appointment, we will first undertake a thorough foot examination. In doing so, we will assess the condition of your nails, skin and overall foot health. We will also discuss the history of your foot health and any existing conditions or pain you may be feeling in your feet. This will allow us to identify any potential foot problems you may have and formulate a treatment plan that works for you.


We will then get to work on your feet, trimming toenails and treating cuticles, removing corns and calluses thinning any nails that may have become thickened. If you have any specific treatment requirements, such as fungal infections of potential ingrown toenails, these problems will also be addressed. Once the initial care of your feet is complete, we will moisturise and massage your feet, helping to provide soft, supple skin and promote blood flow.

Yes, absolutely! Who doesn’t want their feet assessed and cared for by a professional? Medical pedicures can provide a whole host of benefits, not only for those with existing foot issues but for those looking to prevent them from occurring in the first place.

No, there are no risks or side effects that come with a medical pedicure. Medical pedicures are undertaken by trained podiatrists and Foot health practitioners in hygienic and sterile environments to prevent the risk of infection.

The primary difference between a medical pedicure and one carried out at a spa or regular nail salon is that it is undertaken by a qualified Foot Health Practitioner. These are foot health care experts that have completed many years of training and have a diploma from a college to certify that they are working to the highest standards.
