Posts for tag: quick fixes

Everyone is in such a rush these days. Amazon can deliver packages in two hours, you can get food from almost any restaurant without leaving your home, and there are advertisements for every type of immediate health and beauty fix. However, we all know that nothing worth having has ever come easy and that applies to your feet. But the FAAWC wants to make it as easy and quick as possible to get your feet looking better than ever!

In addition to the warm weather and the promise of summer lingering in the air, other special occasions are rushing towards us. School graduations, weddings, and all sorts of summer activities mean needing to look your best so what can we do for our feet in just a few weeks to get ready? The FAAWC has lots of options!

  1. Pedicare Salon

If we can better our health while being pampered, wouldn’t we do it all the time? Well the PediCare salon offers relaxing pedicures and foot maintenance that actually make your feet noticeably different. Completed by certified medical nail technicians under the guidance of our podiatrists, our services include a half-hour PediCare (toenail trimming, callus and corn reduction, application of mousturizer), a full-hour PediCare (hydrotherapy or warm mitt skin softening, relaxing foot and ankle massage, reduction of corns and calluses), or just a half-hour foot and leg massage (for those who need an extra special relaxing touch). Nail polish can be applied for $5 and patients may bring in their own polish or purchase from our store. This is an easy way to pamper yourself while seeing immediate improvements and you don’t even have to be a patient of the FAAWC to visit our PediCare salon! Call 740-363-4373 to book your appointment today.

  1. Keryflex

Maybe your feet need a little more attention than a simple pedicure. In that case, inquire about our Keryflex treatment. Keryflex is a professional nail restoration option that can improve the look of your toenails immediately! Do you have a broken nail you are patiently watching grow? How about a fungal infection you are slowly treating? You can now get the look and feel of a natural healthy nail while continuing your treatment. The Keryflex system allows our nail technicians to remodel your toenails with a flexible, non-porous nail that returns the healthy look for your feet while still allowing treatment and healing to occur. This is not just some acrylic nail that will cover up your problems. The Keryflex nail is podiatrist approved and can only be applied by a certified technician (like the ones we have at the PediCare salon). Unaffected by nail polish, acetone, and detergents and soaps, this nail can be treated just like a natural nail and is applied in just one visit! In terms of quick fixes, this one can really benefit your beauty and your health.

  1. Baby Heels

Maybe you need such a quick fix that you can’t make it in to the office. That’s okay, we have the solution for that too! Try the unique skin peel system of Baby Foot. A single (very squishy) foot wrap lasting only an hour and easy applicable at home will penetrate your dead skin cells and start the exfoliation process. After only 3-5 days you will see your cracked and dry heels start to peel away (literally) to reveal skin as smooth and soft as a baby’s foot! That’s definitely the least work I’ve ever had to do for those results. Get your set from the FAAWC today and see the difference it can make.

All in all, quick fixes generally tend to be myths that leave us hopeful and pull us in with their promises, but every once in awhile an easy solution is actually the best solution and you can find many of those solutions at the FAAWC. Join us today to be ready for all your future activities!

I have a drawer in my house where I put all the things that I don’t want to deal with immediately. Out of sight, out of mind…right? Not really. Just because your feet are all bundled up in socks and shoes during the winter, doesn’t mean that your foot problems have gone away. So why does everyone wait until it’s sandal time before worrying about the health of their feet?

In addition to your scheduled appointments with your podiatrist, you should be making regular visits to the PediCare salon. There are several reasons for this.

  1. Foot health is actually more important in the winter. During the summer, we pamper our feet because we have them on display, but there’s actually more to consider during the cold months when our feet are bundled up. For example, temperature. In addition to keeping our feet healthy, we need to keep them warm. This means choosing the right socks and shoes. Cold feet can lead to dryness and cracking. Warm feet lead to sweating which creates the perfect environment for fungus. The PediCare salon is designed to combat these situations before they become actual problems. After all, wouldn’t you rather have a trip to the salon over a trip to the doctor?
  2. Don’t wait to get healthy. Every summer, advertisements start telling us to get our bodies ready for bikini season. But if you really wanted to be ready, shouldn’t you start preparing early? Your feet are the same way (and arguably easier to take care of). If you have dry feet and cracked heels during the winter, take care of it during the winter! That way you aren’t rushing for a quick fix come the first warm day of spring. Fungal nail infections can take anywhere from six weeks to four months to be resolved. If you wait to start treatment or prevention until later, sandal season will be over before the infection is gone. Get your appointment today to be ready when summer hits.
  3. If you’re someone who gets pedicures already, why not try a PediCare visit instead? Services range from a 30-minute, no frills pedicure to a full service, relaxing foot and leg massage. In addition to these services, you can rest easy knowing that you are working with a certified nail technician, trained specifically under the direction of a podiatrist. The PediCare salon also has a strict adherence to medical safety and sterilization techniques, meaning no chance of infection as with normal pedicures. If you’re paying the same price, why not get more for your money? (Oh, did I mention the affordable pricing?). A visit to the PediCare salon can forever change the way you think of a pedicure.

Overall, there are plenty of reasons to make an appointment at the PediCare salon today, but if you are one of the many who have pledged to make this year their healthiest yet, this is the perfect place to start. After all, who said getting healthy had to be painful? Appointments available Monday through Friday, just call 740-363-4373!
