- $32 for a One-Hour PediCare Service ($60 Value)
The one-hour PediCare service isn’t a simple cosmetic treatment. For starters, it’s performed by a Certified Medical Nail Technician who has undergone more training than a typical nail tech. After taking special precautions to prevent the spread of bacterial infections, this expert begins the one-on-one service, adapting it to each client’s needs by removing calluses and corns and trimming and providing care for fungal, ingrown, and thickened toenails as necessary. The privacy of the service makes it a great option for men shy of attending traditional salons. PediCare treatments are a great alternative for customers who have had infections or damage from salon care or medical conditions. All tools are completely medically sterilized, and personal protective equipment is used to ensure health and safety. She also performs hydrotherapy or warm-mitt skin softening, and a foot and ankle massage, taking special care with clients who suffer from diabetes, poor circulation, impaired feeling in the feet, and other conditions. The technician can apply nail polish for an additional $5 fee if the client provides the polish.
Foot & Ankle Wellness Center
Three podiatrists team up at Foot & Ankle Wellness Center, where they treat bunions, perform diabetic care, and clear up cloudy nails with a host of services. With the help of a staff of podiatric assistants and therapeutic shoe fitters, the doctors treat common foot ailments including stress fractures, ingrown nails, hammertoe, and MC Hammer toe.
Instead of rushing to the medicine cabinet, the good doctors sift through the available options, such as dietary changes for gout or a regimen of icing, supportive taping, and bracing for flat feet. Nail fungus, which traditionally has been treated with pills that can cause severe harm to the liver, gets a high-tech going-over with specialized lasers that depose unsightly talons to reinstate their clearer cousins.
