  • NEW YORK PODIATRIST STATES THAT MEDICAL PEDICURE MORE HYGENIC THAN FROM SALON

 

 

 

We love a weekday mani-pedi special from the salon around the corner as much as the next woman, but the reality is that most establishments—particularly those of the whirpool persuasion—aren't giving your feet the medical-grade TLC they really need. A medical pedicure is the only way to go and podiatric surgeon Dr. Krista A. Archer helps us break down precisely why it's worth seeking out.
 
It's much more hygienic. "There are an abundance of pedicure salons that are volume-based to stay in business," says Dr. Archer. "This means faster client turnover and less attention to sterility of instruments and foot baths. For this reason foot fungus, such as onychomycosis and tinea pedis, are a major problem and among the top reasons why people come to see me." During a medical pedicure, you'll find jet-less foot baths (jet tubes can often be contaminated with bacteria from skin and nails), as well as sterile (not just sanitized), surgical instruments that are single-use and thrown away immediately after use.
