Paramedical Pedicuring Services
What is a Paramedical Pedicure?
Paramedical is defined as relating to services and professions that supplement and support medical work, but does not cross into specific medical care. The nail industry is buzzing about something called a "medi pedi" (aka medical pedicure). While the term rhymes and is catchy, we believe it is misleading. A nail technician's scope of practice does not allow the performance of medical services - in ANY state.
However, nail technicians who have been properly trained in advanced foot and nail care can provide safe and effective services that far exceed the results of a basic pedicure. These advanced techniques do not fall under medical care, but are rather, specialized, cosmetic and non-invasive foot care that aims to provide instant and long-term comfort. In other words, a Paramedical Pedicure is hyper-focused on addressing non-medical foot and nail concerns in an effort to provide essential foot care for healthy feet.

Thick Nail Debridement
Nails can become thick for a variety of reasons - poor/reduced circulation, injuries, repetitive trauma, etc. - causing pain and discomfort. Nail debridement reduces the thickness (done over a series of pedicures). Not only does this result in a smoother, more natural nail appearance, it effects less pressure on the nail bed (which, in turn, reduces discomfort and pain).

Corn & Callus Reduction
Corns and calluses are thick, hardened skin that develops over time as a way for the skin to protect itself against repeated friction and pressure. Our unique 4-step Intensive Callus Treatment works to safely reduce corns/calluses, while also hydrating and nourishing the skin in order to reduce discomfort.

Ingrown/Involuted Nail Mitigation
When ingrown (corner or side of a toenail grows towards the sidewall) or involuted (nail curls under itself) toenails occur, they can cause pain, inflammation and swelling. Our mitigation process works to catch the nail BEFORE it has punctured the surrounding soft tissue and requires medical intervention. We precisely trim the nail to ensure that the nail (after trimming) sits parallel to the sidewall or lays flat on the nail bed and that no sharp angles or shards remain.

Ingrown/Involute Nail Brace
This non-surgical, corrective service helps to reduce the curvature of a nail. A plastic brace is applied to the base of the nail plate and as the nail grows out, it gently (and unnoticeably) lifts the corners of the nail.

Common among our athletes - the toenail either partially or entirely falls off due to repetitive trauma or injury. Our process uses a revolutionary gel (that is especially formulated for this purpose) to restore and reconstruct a natural looking toenail.
