Please note for any medical conditions we have listed, Footlogix products penetrate into the layers of the epidermis and not into the blood stream, the products are safe, however, because of the active ingredients present in the anti-fungal formulas (Peeling Skin, Rough Skin and Toe Nail Tincture), we would suggest for clients to get a doctor’s approval before using these products. For pregnant clients we advise that this treatment be only carried out after your first trimester.
TREATMENT INFORMATION, ADVICE AND AFTERCARE
To achieve maximum benefits from your treatment, we recommend following some basic tips and advice.
- A pedicure will clean, shape and strengthen your nails. Exfoliation and cleanse will improve the texture of your nails and skin, this will stimulate the blood and lymph flow to improve the health of your skin.
- Good foot care treats and prevents skin problems, such as callouses, as well as in-growing toenails and related infections. A pedicure can help your posture by enabling you to walk more comfortably.
- The amount of time between pedicures depends and is personal choice but we would recommend a manicure every 4 to 6 weeks.
Our top tips
- Try to give your nails a good clean beforehand. This will stop the therapist using valuable manicure-time doing it herself, so that she can get on with the good stuff.
- Leave yourself enough time to get the full benefit of the treatment, and if applicable make sure you allow your nails to dry before leaving the salon.
- Remember Nicole’s golden rule “Your nails are jewels not tools!”
Before your appointment
- Wear open toed shoes when getting a pedicure so, your nail colour doesn’t get smudged.
The following home-care routine will ensure your manicure and pedicure will last well and keep your hands, feet and nails in tip top condition.
- Use cream or lotion after washing feet to moisturise and soften the skin.
- Use a file on rough edges or split nails (never use a metal nail file).
- The feet should be washed at least once a day, finishing with a cold rinse. Dry the skin well, particularly between the toes.
- Scrubbing the feet briskly with a small firm brush not only helps to clean them, but, also stimulates the blood circulation and has an invigorating effect on the feet. Do this after the feet have been washed.
- Hard skin on your feet can be treated at home following a bath or shower with a pumice stone or callous file. Soften the treated area afterwards by massaging in a foot cream or body lotion.
- Keep toe nails trimmed and filed straight across to prevent splits and infections.
