waterless pedicure

The future of pedicures is waterless! Waterless laser pedicures reduce water use and the danger of infection from contamination. The procedure thoroughly cleans the foot, removes dead skin cells, and reveals younger, healthier skin underneath. The Waterless Laser Medical Pedicure is significantly less intrusive, resulting in softer, healthier feet, especially when treating corns, calluses, cracked heels, and ingrown toenails. This blog will go into more detail about what you may anticipate from a Waterless Medical Pedicure.

What is a Waterless Medical Pedicure?

Exfoliation, foot massage and scrub, and laser therapy all come together in a waterless medical pedicure. Because water is not used, it is referred to as a “waterless” activity. To clean and exfoliate the feet during a waterless medical pedicure, a variety of products are used. Afterward, the pedicurist will utilize medical equipment to gently scrub the callused skin on the soles of your feet and treat for any possible fungus.

How to have a waterless medical pedicure?

For a pedicure to be most effective, your feet and legs must be completely dry before starting treatment. This ensures that no excess water is absorbed into the skin. Your skin will be cleansed and prepped with an anti-bacterial solution before starting the procedure. Following this, the elimination of dry skin and calluses through gentle exfoliation will be carried out via dermabrasion and gentle medical-grade products. The treatment will include nail shaping and reflexology to improve the look and feel of the feet. Lastly, laser therapy will be performed on all toenails.

Our medical devices are also used to relieve hard skin, corns and calluses, and ingrown toenails. Experienced and trained pedicurists at 26 Foot and Ankle perform pedicures in a safe, relaxing and hygienic environment. To ensure maximum benefit from our cosmetic treatments for fungal nails, calluses, and dry or cracked skin, we recommend monthly treatments.

Benefits of the Waterless Medical Pedicure

The main advantage of a waterless medical pedicure is that it is much less invasive than a standard spa pedicure. This makes it a better choice for people with sensitive skin or open wounds, as this reduces the risk of infection for diabetics who are susceptible to infection because of peripheral neuropathy. Additionally, for post-operative patients, the waterless setting is ideal for preventing unnecessary swelling from a hot water bath and decreases the possibility of infection from water contamination. Lastly, a waterless medical pedicure takes about half the time of a standard pedicure and is appointment-based. This makes it more suitable for people who are in a hurry and don’t have time for a full pedicure treatment.
