Medical Pedicure By Podiatrists
A podiatrist medical pedicure is a dry pedicure. The focus is medical treatment by a foot doctor and podiatrist, not cosmetic treatment by cosmetologist.
Does Insurance Cover A Medical Pedicure?
- A medical pedicure is not meant for cosmetic reasons. We do not paint your nails and the goal is not to make you look pretty.
- The goal of a medical pedicure is to get rid of your pain.
- We strive to make your foot pain free, and if you are in pain then this is a valid medical visit under almost any insurance.
- We have trained podiatrists and foot doctors that are trained in foot and ankle surgery, these are not cosmetologists trained to make your foot look beautiful.
- If you are in pain then you definitely qualify for a medical pedicure.
What Is A Medical Pedicure:
- A medical pedicure is an evaluation by a podiatrist and foot specialist.
- Initially a medical assistant will remove your shoes and socks.
- We will have all our equipment and tools ready for the physician to use.
- Our physician will then come in and evaluate your foot for any foot and ankle problems.
- If these foot and ankle problems include ingrown toenails, thick fungal toenails or even a wart – then this is something the doctor can help you with.
What Conditions Are Helped By A Medical Pedicure:
A podiatrist and foot doctor can help you with the following conditions:
- Ingrown toenails.
- Fungal toenails.
- Thick Skin.
- Skin Fungus.
How Long Does the Medical Pedicure Last?
- Generally results should last for about 3 months.
- If you have any worries about infection or severe pain, then this is another story, you can definitely come in for a visit.
- If you are in pain, or have issues earlier, then you always are able to call us for care.
Why A Medical Pedicure vs. Regular Pedicure?
- Podiatrists are here to diagnose and take care of your medical conditions.
- The focus is on safety and not on cosmetics.
- If you are here for getting your toenails painted, then you are likely in the wrong place.
- We use completely sterile equipment, we are here for you if you have what is defined as “at risk foot”: This can mean diabetes, heart disease or a history of infection.
