We all love receiving a relaxing pedicure after a visit to the spa, with the feeling of clean, exfoliated and smooth feet, but that “clean” feeling could very well be deceiving.Did you know that you can acquire several kinds of bacteria at the whirlpool pedicure chair that can cause athlete’s foot, toenail fungus, warts, MRSA and swine flu? All of the previously mentioned skin and virus issues thrive in warm and wet environments, the question is: How to stay safe and risk free while getting pampered?
- Request a pipeless drainage system, as bacteria breeds in pipes. If there is a faucet at your pedicure bowl, RUN!
- In case the spa/salon doesn’t offer disposable liners (like Luxe Day Spa offers), make sure the nail technician scrubs the bowl clean, rinses and sprays a hospital grade germicide approved disinfectant, which must be allowed to sit for a minimum of 15 minutes before being used for the next pedicure.
- Make sure the instruments that will be used for your pedicure have been sterilized (emerged in the previously mentioned solution for 15 minutes) or properly ultraviolet irradiated.
At Luxe day Spa you will have a safe and relaxing experience with your pedicure. We service our pedicures using the most highly rated pedicure/massage chairs in the industry that utilize a “one time use” disposable liner for each client. Disposable liners are the safest and most sanitary method available in the industry when receiving a pedicure. In addition, at Luxe Day Spa, instruments are sterilized under ultraviolet irradiation after being emerged in hospital grade germicide disinfectant for a minimum of 15 minutes. Your mani & pedi should be a relaxing and safe experience, your tootsies deserve this protection 😉
