Your pedicure in Leuven
A cosmetic pedicure (also known as aesthetic pedicure) involves the disinfection of your feet, the possible removal of nail polish, a foot examination, the cutting of your nails and the cleaning of your cuticles, the removal of excess calluses as well as corns or calluses, if necessary, the depressurisation of painful spots as well as a short massage with a nurturing foot cream. This type of pedicure is exclusively focused on beauty, a relaxing feeling and the care of your feet and toes.
Of course we also give advice on aftercare.
A medical pedicure includes the cosmetic pedicure mentioned above as well as a specialised foot care.
This specialised foot care can consist of the following treatments and/or advice:
- Advice and/or treatment for diabetic feet, older feet, rheumatic feet, spastic feet, sports feet and/or neglected feet.
- Advice and/or treatment of skin conditions such as: allergies, eczema, psoriasis, blisters, calluses, crevices, various types of corns or calluses, dry feet, foot warts, winter feet, sweaty feet, feet with an unpleasant odour, swimmer's eczema (foot fungus) and/or inflammations.
- Advice and/or treatment of nail aberrations such as: blue nails, split nails, ingrown nails, horn nails, lime or fungal nails, butt nails, tunnel nails, white spots and/or hollow nails.
A diagnosis can only be made after a thorough inspection of your feet. The pedicure will try to get an idea of the symptoms and the history of the disease on the basis of questions. If necessary, the pedicure can refer the client to a doctor.
The most common foot conditions are calluses, warts, fungus, and corns.
The most common disorders of the nails are ingrown nails, tunnel nails, horny nails, calluses and fungi.
