DC PODIATRIST STATES THAT SALON INSTRUMENTS NEED TO BE AUTOCLAVED

MANICURES AND PEDICURES LOOK GREAT, BUT YOU CAN GET INFECTIONS OR HARM YOUR NAILS.  WHAT PRECAUTIONS SHOULD SOMEONE GETTING A MANICURE OR PEDICURE TAKE BEFORE HEADING OFF TO THE SALON? FIRST AND FOREMOST, IT'S IMPORTANT TO BRING YOUR OWN INSTRUMENTS - SUCH AS CLIPPERS, NAIL FILES AND PUMICE STONES - TO AVOID PICKING UP GERMS FROM ANOTHER CLIENT, SAYS PODIATRIST, DOCTOR ERIKA SCHWARTZ.

"IF SALON EMPLOYEES ARE JUST DIPPING THEIR INSTRUMENTS IN SOME KIND OF SOLUTION, THATS NOT GOING TO KILL BACTERIA AND FUNGUS"  PODIATRIST SCHWARTZ ADVISES.  "THEY SHOULD BE USING AN AUTOCLAVE, A TYPE OF MACHINE FOR STERILIZING INSTRUMENTS, "  SAYS DR. SCHWARTZ, CA PODIATRIST.

MOST TORONTO FOOT SPECIALISTS INCLUDING TORONTO FOOT DOCTORS, TORONTO CHIROPODISTS AND TORONTO PODIATRISTS AGREE THAT YOU SHOULD ONLY ATTEND FOOT AND NAIL SALONS WHERE YOU ARE SURE THAT THE INSTRUMENTS ARE BEING PROPERLY STERILIZED OR BRING YOU OWN INSTUMENTS.
