Pedicures & Manicures Q & A

What are the health benefits of manicures and pedicures?

A high-quality manicure or pedicure does far more than make your nails look shiny, providing health benefits that include:

  • Faster nail growth
  • Increased moisture levels in the nails
  • Improved blood flow and circulation
  • Fewer split or cracked nails
  • Fewer ingrown toenails
  • Increased self-confidence

Dr. Leahy and his team can also spot the signs of underlying medical conditions, such as kidney disease, liver disorders, and anemia by checking the overall health of your nails.

Regular pedicures are essential for people with diabetes, as one of the consequences of this condition is reduced circulation to the feet. If your circulation becomes compromised, you’re more likely to develop skin problems, and regular diabetic nail care ensures those problems are identified and addressed.

What types of manicures and pedicures are available?

There’s a variety of nail treatments available at Leahy Family Care & Wellness Center that can be customized to your preference, including:

Basic file and polish

Your technician cleans your nails, shapes them, and applies the nail polish of your choice.

Spa manicure or pedicure

Your technician carries out the basic clean and file, then soaks your hands in warm water to soften the skin. They can then push back your cuticles and tidy them up, after which they moisturize your hands and nails before applying nail polish if desired.

Gel manicure

Gel treatments are ideal for people with thin nails prone to breakage and for those with little time who are looking for a manicure that lasts. This type of manicure includes the basic clean and file, then follows with a special type of polish that requires a heat lamp for curing.

What are the advantages of having a professional manicure and pedicure?

In addition to the health benefits, your technician is an expert in creating perfectly manicured nails to a standard that would be hard to achieve at home. You’ll also be able to take advantage of the additional services on offer, including personalized nail art for a unique and striking look.

Your manicure and pedicure take place in a relaxing spa environment, complete with private rooms, soothing music, and whirlpool pedicure baths. To experience the luxury of a professional manicure or pedicure, call Leahy Family Care & Wellness Center today, or book an appointment online.
