GENERAL PODIATRY SERVICES

Medical Pedicures

At Mint Foot Care, we call our general skin and nail care treatments, Medical Pedicures.

We combine the indulgence of a pedicure treatment with the expert care and hygiene of qualified podiatrists to give you a unique foot care experience. Our highly qualified podiatrists will carefully analyse your current circumstance and provide the necessary treatment to bring your skin and nails back to a beautiful condition.

All our medical pedicures include expert nail care, corn and callus removal with the spa indulgence of a peppermint foot soak, peppermint infused cold hand towel, peppermint infused hot foot towel and a peppermint lotion foot massage.

Corns and Callus

Corns and Callus are easily treated by a podiatrist, usually by ‘debridement’, which involves scraping off the dead skin with a scalpel. The podiatrist will also assess why these lesions may be there in the first place, and help to provide some strategies to focus on prevention. This may include wearing correctly fitting footwear, pressure deflection devices or prescribing custom orthotics.

Nails

We treat a range of nail conditions such as ingrown toenails, thickened toenails, deformed toenails, fungal infected toenails, and partially detached toenails.

Fungal Infections

Fungal infections of the foot can affect either the skin or toenails. Our podiatrists can assist in clinical diagnosis by a physical examination and, if needed, a microscopy and/or culture of nail or skin specimens. Routine foot care and application of prescribed topical antifungal solution/cream may be part of the treatment plan. Advice on hygiene and management may be recommended.

Additional Services/Add Ons

Indulge with an intensely moisturising peppermint paraffin wax bath, decadent peppermint foot scrub or cooling peppermint foot mask which deeply condition and revitalise the skin.
