Pedicure

PEDICURE
A professional pedicure takes from 30-60 minutes to complete, and usually includes the following:
      
Foot Bath     
You will place your feet in a warm bath containing pedicure cleanser and sometimes bath salts. Sit back and relax. Your nail tech will let you soak for 5-10 minutes before beginning your pedicure. In European pedicures, the foot bath is replaced with warm, moist towels.
      
Exfoliation     
Every pedicure will include some form of exfoliation, removing old skin and excess calluses (athletes and people who are on their feet a lot need some calluses to maintain the health of their feet.) Your nail tech may use exfoliating lotions, granulated scrubs, pedicure files, or some combination of these.
      
Trimming and Filing Nails     
The nails are then filed with a toenail file and sometimes a rasp (small, metal file designed to reach the corners of nails) to smooth the rough edges. Your nail tech may also buff the tops of the nails to reduce mild thickness and to help polish to adhere better.
      
Cuticle Treatment     
An exfoliating lotion or cream is applied to each toenail and rubbed in. Using a sanitized cuticle pusher, your nail technician will gently free each cuticle from the nail beneath it. Going over each toe with a nail brush at this point will remove most of the old skin. (Watch out, it tickles!) your nail tech will then look carefully at each nail, using a sanitized cuticle nipper to remove any hangnails.

Massage     
This is everyone's favorite part!  Using lotion or oil, your nail tech will massage your legs from the knee to the ankle, and then the feet and toes. Relax and enjoy.

Because of the nature of this massage, if you have varicose veins, a circulatory problem, if you are in your third trimester of pregnancy, or if you have ever had a stroke, consult your physician before receiving a pedicure. Inform your nail technician of your condition at the beginning of your service.
