a medicure, or a medical pedicure, is the newest way to treat those feet. Done in both traditional and medical spas, a medicure involves more than soaking and buffing tired feet. Instead, your manicurist looks for common foot problems like corns, bunions, ingrown toenails, fungal infections and even may do a quick check for signs of skin cancer. Then, after a very thorough cleaning, you'll have dead skin and callouses removed with a drill-like tool that has a sandpaper tip. Follow with a massage and you're piggies will be softer, smoother, and healthier than ever before.
High-end medicures can cost up to $100-$125, but budget-minded folks can find them for as low as $30. As with a conventional pedicure, make sure you know your salon practices good hygiene to be sure that your medicure is a safe and healthy experience.
