This type of pedicure is performed using a machine with grinding nozzles, which also treats the surfaces of nails and foot skin, making them smooth, soft and well-groomed.

The most suitable type of pedicure for your client needs to be selected taking into account the condition of the skin of the feet, but also their level of sensitivity.

For example, the most effective is an machine pedicure, because it can handle even dry calluses, removing them completely painlessly. The undoubted advantage is that this type of pedicure has a massage effect, affecting all the reflex zones of the foot.

SPA pedicure is a special technology that not only gives a healthy look to your client legs, but also brings a pleasant sensation.

Spa pedicure is performed using professional cosmetics based on herbs and minerals. As a rule, the spa manicure complex includes a relaxing bath, foot treatment, toe massage, masks and scrubs.

The main difference between a spa pedicure and an ordinary one is the preservation of the skin. Rough skin is not cut or cut; it is removed naturally using various cosmetological means that soften it. This technique is soft and does not cause discomfort, burning or other unpleasant sensations. The result after this procedure lasts about a month.

Contraindications to medical pedicure

Medical pedicures are performed exclusively by a doctor and are aimed at treating diseases. Such a pedicure is performed with the help of an equipment, which makes the procedure as safe as possible.

In medical pedicures, a specialist uses only professional therapeutic cosmetics.

The foot is treated consistently and a special softener is applied to the surface. Numerous nozzles and a pedicure kit help the doctor to determine the type and degree of illness and carry out the necessary procedures aimed at a speedy recovery. A medical pedicure can eliminate diseases such as fungus and psoriasis.

In the conclusion

At the end, I would like to add if your client has a contraindication for a pedicure. It is better to offer your client a medical pedicure, where a doctor can help. Then you will retain your professionalism in the eyes of the client and will not harm yourself or subsequent clients.

Always stay on the side of professionalism.
