Pedicure vs PediCare - What's The Difference?
A pedicure is a cosmetic service performed in a salon to the feet and toenails.
If you want/need more than a cosmetic service, PediCare features:
Foot care by a Podologist
* Use of aseptic techniques beyond provincial/territory requirements to ensure cleanliness
* Personal Protective Equipment for both you and the Podologist to insure your health and safety
* BS Brace is also available to correct involuted and/or ingrown nails without pain or surgery
A Podologist is not a medical doctor, they are someone who has an advanced knowledge in lower limb diseases and disorders, infection control, comprehensive foot and leg evaluation, advanced skin and nail pathology, and diabetic foot syndrome, as well as gait analysis and advanced pedicuring skills. They specialize in pedicuring geriatric, diabetic, and immune compromised clients. To fulfill their education, they must complete numerous case studies and take part in a truly life changing residency program. Upon successful completion, they are entitled to a Bachelor of Science degree in Podology.
The lack of standardization in pedicuring services in salons and spas means that clients who are diabetic, suffer ingrown toenails, skin or nail infections, or even structural disorders may not be getting the proper care that they require. Podologists are required to complete a specific curriculum in order to learn how to care for these clients with special foot care needs in a safe and effective manner. A Podologist can knowledgeably refer you to the proper medical professional when additional attention is needed. (Toes2Toes credited for this description)
