A specialized skin and nail treatment performed by a licensed podiatrist. This sterile procedure focuses on the aesthetic treatment of the foot and toenails. All instruments are processed and sanitized in the same manner as operative instruments providing you with peace of mind.
The doctor will focus on removing painful and unsightly corns, calluses, dry skin, and restoring your heels leaving them “baby smooth.” During the proper trimming and contouring of the nails, an evaluation and preventative screening of your cuticles, nail bed, and nail plate will be performed. Rest assured, you will be devoid of painful ingrown toenails and skin infections.
This differs from a traditional nail salon pedicure as there is no unsanitary soaking and massaging of your feet. Instead, this “dry” skin and nail technique leaves your feet feeling refreshed and healthy.
This treatment is finished off by a certified nail technician. You may bring your own polish or choose from our selection of Dr.'s Remedy anti-fungal polish that is formulated to keep your nails healthy. If you choose to use our colors, we do not redip the brush and continue to maintain sterile practices with the polish.
