A medical pedicure or medi pedi is a one- on – one session with a qualified and skilled podiatrist. It is more than a “beauty treatment” it is a health treatment and check up. You can relax knowing that your feet are in the best of care.
Your feet play an important role. Give them the care they deserve.
With the heightened need and importance of safe, sterile environments when it comes to our health, the staff at Katie Nilan Podiatry provide a comprehensive and thorough make over of your feet. Unfortunately the rise and accessibility of nail salons have resulted in the use of unhygienic and non sterile equipment that may leave you open to infection and disease. Podiatrists are health professionals who can diagnose and treat all foot concerns. This includes identifying areas of concern that a beauty spa therapist may not notice such as fungal infections or structural issues related to incorrect shoe choice for your foot type.
What is involved?
A full comprehensive one-on- one podiatry assessment of your feet, toenails and skin
