When to Consider a Medical Pedicure

A pedicure from a nail salon improves the appearance of your feet, making it more fun to bare your feet in the summer sun. But the truth is, most nail salons don’t provide the comprehensive and holistic care your feet need for optimal health. 

Medical pedicures not only make your feet look more attractive, but they also provide expert care that places foot health as a top priority. At New Canaan Podiatry in New Canaan, Connecticut, board-certified podiatrist Jennifer Tauber, DPM, and our team offer medical pedicures to revitalize your feet.

Before the season of sandals, open-toe shoes, and bare feet arrives, take time to learn what’s involved in a medical pedicure and when to consider one. 

What’s involved with a medical pedicure?

Like a traditional pedicure, medical pedicures make your feet look and feel great. But unlike traditional pedicures, medical pedicures also provide holistic foot care to promote your nail and foot health. 

With Dr. Tauber’s supervision, your team member develops a customized pedicure foot treatment with both the appearance and health of your foot in mind. While your exact treatment may differ depending on your needs, most medical pedicures include:

One of the most important aspects of a medical pedicure is the superior level of hygiene you can expect. At traditional salons, it’s not uncommon to contract bacterial infections, warts, and fungal infections because of poor salon hygiene. At New Canaan Podiatry, our team uses only sterilized or disposable instruments in a safe, sterile environment. 

What’s more? Since Dr. Tauber is on-site, she’s available to provide her diagnostic expertise if your care provider finds any health conditions on your feet. For patients with foot health concerns, our office offers many treatment options and footcare products to restore their health. 

When should I consider a medical pedicure?

Choosing the right pedicure for you depends on your foot and nail goals as well as the health of your feet. If you have a chronic health issue that affects your feet or are finding foot care difficult due to age, medical pedicures are the right choice. Dr. Tauber and our team address your conditions along with the appearance of your feet. 

You might also consider a medical pedicure if:

Medical pedicures are an excellent way to keep your feet looking beautiful while maintaining excellent foot health.
