Expert Medical Diabetic Foot Care

Dec 26, 2020 02:58PM ● By Jan Southern

The average nail technician in the U.S. has six months of professional training. For people with diabetes, neuropathy, sensitive feet or other ailments of the feet, a pedicure can be dangerous if handled by an under-trained technician. Classic pedicure uses nail clippers, cuticle cutters and pushers, steel nail files and in some cases even razors or credo knives. Even with great care and an emphasis on hygiene at these salons there is always a risk for the transmission of thousands of diseases, like mold and fungal infection, athletes’ feet or even HIV and hepatitis. Customers with diabetes and other foot sensitivities should avoid pedicures that are not medical pedicures. 

Fortunately, we now have a master pedicurist in Pooler. Bellis Health & Wellness Spa pedicures are performed by the only Podology Certified Master Pedicurist in the area (GA, FL and SC) and is a Certified Medical Pedicurist by European Union of Podiatry. Bellis is a full-service salon for the treatment of ingrown nail, nail plate replacement and silicone correctors. We also have children’s treatments.
