Manicures and Pedicures

Fall colors are out! Many people would love to get their nails or toes done professionally but have a sense of worry about going. A common question we hear is, "Can I catch nail fungus from getting a maniure or pedicure at a nail salon?" The answer is YES. Nail salons have slowly started getting more attention regarding sanitation within the salons over the past few years. When instruments are not properly sanitized in between customers, nail fungus can be transmitted from one person to the next. 

 

If you choose to use a traditional nail salon or spa, take the time to research the facility to see how instruments and the work space are sanitized before dipping your feet in for a relaxing pedicure. Make sure the workers are certified to be performing a manicure or pedicure. Infections can occur if people are not properly trained or are too rough. Do not be afraid to ask questions regarding sanitation or experience. It's not so relaxing when you end up leaving with nail fungus or an infected toenail!  

 

Since you cannot guarantee traditional nail salons properly sanitize their equipment, we have opened our own nail spa, Footprints in the Sand, within our Smyrna, TN office. The two nail technicians are fully trained and certified to take care of a variety of foot problems. All equipment and utensils are sanitized to hospital standards, allowing you to sit back and relax without any worry!

 

For questions or an appointment, call today at (615)220-8789.
