Why Should I have a Manicure or Pedicure done at Glow Medi Spa?
Hygienic standards and the health and beauty of your hands, feet, and nails are our priority as a medical spa. Have you or someone you know ever had the misfortune of contracting a hand or foot disease from a manicure or pedicure? Unfortunately, it is not a rare occurrence. Fungal infections such as Athlete's Foot or Runner's Feet, along with plantar warts which are viral infections, are highly contagious diseases.
At Glow Medi Spa we do not treat foot diseases. Rather, we are committed to preventing the transmission of foot diseases by meticulously following the highest hygienic standards.
Our products, techniques, and philosophies of hand, foot, and nail care are adapted from medical treatments developed by a UK-based podiatrist, Margaret Dabbs. Our manicures and pedicures are so special, they even attract the attention of the media and Glow Medi Spa has been awarded BEST PEDICURE in the Best of Village 2014 awards.
What Type of Precautions Does Glow Medi Spa take with their Manicures and Pedicures?
As a proud member of the Leading Spas of Canada, Glow Medi Spa follows the highest standards to ensure the health and beauty of your hands, feet, and nails.
We take all precautions to avoid transmission of potential disease. For example, we do not utilize jets since organisms can reside within the recessions of the jets. Sterilization is more challenging with the increased uneven surface area in the jets. We prefer to use stainless steel bowls which are smooth and easily sterilized after each client use. In addition, we utilize tools which are either disposable or more conducive to easy sterilization after each client use.
We encourage all clients to use their own personal tools during manicures/pedicures if they desire. We also retail some of these specialty products such as crystal nail files, nail buffers, stainless steel foot files, and nail polishes.
What's Special about the Technique in a Medical Manicure/Pedicure?
The Margaret Dabbs medical manicure/pedicure technique is unique. Once our clients experience a medical manicure or pedicure, they will not settle for anything less.
As an example of the difference, the pedicures are done dry. This is important since proper inspection of the feet cannot be done once the feet have been immersed in water or moisturized. Foot conditions can be easily missed once the feet are soaked. Our highly trained aestheticians will examine your feet prior to the treatment and monitor carefully during your treatment. If any concerns are detected, you will be referred to Dr. Wong for further evaluation.
What's Special about the Products Used in the Medical Manicure/Pedicure?
At Glow Medi Spa, we have carefully evaluated and chosen the Margaret Dabbs unique line of products and techniques for our Medical Pedicure and Manicure treatments. Margaret Dabbs is a UK-based podiatrist whose clinic rose to fame after she pioneered the “medical pedicure”.
Developed through years of experience, this range of organic emu oil products have the unique feature of being both treatment remedies and luxurious beautifying products. Australian organic emu oil is renowned for its incredible healing properties and it is easily absorbed into the skin's dermal layer with benefits of anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties. In addition, the products incorporate a signature light refreshing scent of Lemon Myrtle to soothe, relax and nourish aching feet, while moisturizing ultra dry skin.
The Margaret Dabbs specialty products and techniques were recently introduced to Canada and are available through select spas only. These products deliver long lasting results for healthy and beautiful feet.
Do You Select Special Nail Polishes?
Our nail polishes have also been carefully selected and customized options are presented to each of our clients. We carry polishes of the highest quality which are only available through exclusive spas. For example, Rococo polishes are free of toluene, formaldehyde, and DBP (dibutyl phthalate) which are chemicals best avoided due to potential side effects which remain unclear. Babor polishes from Germany are also of the highest quality as well as BioSeaweed Gel Nails. There are many options to suit even the most discerning client.
