Medical Pedicures (Medi-pedi)


Do Podiatrists paint toenails?

Unlike standard pedicures in salons, podiatrists  do not paint toenails as part of their professional services. Instead, they prioritise tasks such as treating foot conditions, assessing foot health, and offering valuable advice on proper foot care practices and footwear choices. 

A Podiatry Medical Pedicure, often referred to as a “Medi-pedi,” is a specialised pedicure performed by a qualified podiatrist, combining elements of traditional pedicures with medical foot care. Unlike standard spa or salon pedicures, a Medi-pedi is focused on promoting foot health and addressing specific foot-related concerns.
