Medical Spa Q & A

What is a medical manicure or pedicure?

One of life’s little luxuries is going to a nail salon and sitting back to have your feet and hands beautified. Unfortunately, while well-meaning, these institutions can be prone to fungal infections. Your nail care expert may excel in nails, but not in the health of your feet.

With a medical manicure or pedicure, a podiatric expert performs these services, taking care to keep a sterile environment, and they only use products that boost the health of your nails.

To give you a better idea of the role that a medical manicure or pedicure serves, think of it as you do your regular dental cleanings. A professional dental cleaning is critical in helping you safeguard the health of your teeth as your hygienist can spot potential problems and jump into action, preventing bigger problems down the road. This same concept applies to the medical spa services at Benjamin Van Pham, DPM.

When would I need a medical manicure or pedicure?

A medical manicure or pedicure is a good idea for anyone who wants to ensure that their care is in expert medical hands. All too often, pedicurists may unwittingly set you up for more problems by getting too aggressive in removing dead skin or calluses. 

This is especially important if you’re prone to fungal infections or you have a more serious condition like diabetes. In fact, the team cautions against anyone with diabetes going to a nail salon for foot care.  

What happens during a medical manicure or pedicure?

Instead of just simply scrubbing away dead skin and painting your toenails, Dr. Van Pham knows how to expertly clean and inspect your feet and hands, looking for any telltale signs of brewing problems. If you have any corns or calluses, the team can address them easily, giving you smooth feet again.

Not only does Dr. Van Pham ensure a clean environment when he performs a medical manicure or pedicure, but he also uses antifungal polishes to protect your nails.
