Are Pedicures Really Dangerous for Your Foot Health?

You may have heard from friends or on the news that pedicures are dangerous for your health. And you may be wondering if it is true. Can pedicures really cause health problems?

The answer is yes. Due to the unhygienic nature in which some pedicures are performed, it is possible for someone to develop an infection after getting a pedicure.

Nail infections and foot funguses can be spread from shared instruments or instruments that are not sanitized properly.

So, if you still want a pedicure but don’t want to take the chance, what can you do?

To ensure your feet and nails stay healthy, you can do an at-home pedicure.

They are fairly easy to do and you will be certain that your instruments are clean and haven’t been used on others before you. In other words, you won’t have to worry about the aftermath of a bad pedicure.

Even if you do your pedicures at home, though, space them out. You should only have a pedicure about every eight weeks.

If you are interested, check out our page on home pedicures to get step-by-step instructions on performing your own pedicures at home.

If you have developed a foot or nail problem due to a pedicure and would like to set up an appointment with our office, you can contact us at 615-220-8788 or at our toll-free number 888-713-0906. You can also request an appointment online.
