Pedicures and Spa Pedicures

What is a Spa Pedicure? 

A spa pedicure is a treatment for your feet that removes dead skin, softens hard skin and shapes and treats your toenails. Think of it as a manicure for the feet! A good foot treatment is heaven. 

What is a Spa Pedicure good for? 
  • A regular spa pedicure can support chiropody if you suffer from foot problems, such as: corns, calluses, and cracked soles. This may prevent you from needing further treatment. 
  • A spa pedicure can also help your posture — you naturally walk more comfortably on cared-for feet. 
  • Spa pedicures can also soothe and relax you when combined with other treatments. Once your pedicurist has massaged several softening and soothing creams into your feet, you may feel you are walking on air! 
What to expect from a Spa Pedicure 

A traditional Spa Pedicure begins with a therapeutic foot bath or spa. Your feet are soaked and cleansed in warm, scented water to soften the skin – like a mini-Jacuzzi for your feet. 

An exfoliating rub will slough off dead skin with salts or minerals as well as filing and using a pumice stone to remove tough hard layers of skin. Your pedicurist will also remove your cuticles and shape and file your toe nails. 

A good pedicure will result in your feet looking fresh and feeling fantastic. You should want to show off your toes.   

A pedicure will usually last between 30 and 60 minutes, dependent on the condition of your feet and what polish (standard or gel) you currently have on. 

Different kinds of Pedicure 

Pedicures vary depending on the spa and pedicurist, but you can usually find one perfect for you by the description on a spa menu.

Hot tips!

Choose a qualified nail technician who has evidently high standards of hygiene. Like wise if you have any foot infections, fungal or otherwise, it is better if you get those treated medically first. 

Choice of footwear is crucial. You don’t want to have to push newly high-gloss finished toenails into socks and shoes for your travel home. Spa-standard nail polish may take up to 24 hours to dry completely (unless you’re having a gel polish pedicure, which dries instantly). Whatever your feet arrive in, we recommend that you have flip-flops or open sandals to wear afterwards.
