Most often, we pay more attention to what immediately catches the eye – hair, face, neckline, hands … and we forget about the legs and about the fact that they require no less care.
In addition to the usual pedicure, there is also a hardware pedicure, the difference of which lies in the fact that a special device with various nozzles is used.
The skin on the legs quickly grows coarse as a result of various external influences – the inconvenience of shoes, sweat, dirt. Apparatus pedicure is a good tool for foot care and protection from cracks, corns, corns, nail layering.
During the first session, I immediately noticed that they didn’t do the bath for skin steaming, but use special disinfecting creams and liquids for skin and nails.
A feature of these funds is that they reduce the possibility of injury, fungal, and infectious diseases, because the living tissue is not cut off, and the effect is only on dead, keratinized cells.
In addition, when I took the tools out of the box for sterilization, and the master processed his hands with a special solution, which again increased the sense of security in terms of infections.
The possibilities of hardware pedicure in terms of nail care are great. Many people know firsthand about problems with ingrown nails. Just with the help of hardware pedicure they can be straightened, as well as solve the problem of thickening of the nail plates.
I especially liked the fact that the master does not trim the cuticle, but trim it with a small nozzle. The fact is that I have a tendency to burrs, so I am negative to circumcising the cuticle.
You can, of course, resort to unedged pedicure, but due to the fact that I am an avid allergic person, it is not known how my body will react to the components used. With a hardware pedicure, such problems do not arise.
It is very convenient that with the help of nozzles of different diameters and with different spraying you can handle problem areas that are difficult to access with a classic pedicure.
The nails and the periungual space are freed from the layer of dead cells and in the literal sense of the word – breathe. This feeling of lightness after the first session of the hardware pedicure I remember for a long time!
Removal of calluses, cracks and foot care
Apparatus pedicure effectively fights cracks on the heels, treating the edges of cracks thoroughly, without pain and damage. The possibility of re-occurrence of cracks is minimal.
I have a thin and delicate skin, so calluses and corns are my constant companions.
I was struck by the method of removing corns with a hardware pedicure – they are drilled with special nozzles, the size of which the master selects individually. In this case, the whole procedure is completely painless and not dangerous in terms of injury.
According to my feelings, the foot treatment procedure is not just foot skin care, it is complete relaxation and removal of leg fatigue, and, in general, relaxation of the whole body, because a kind of acupressure of the foot occurs.
A coarse layer of skin is gently removed using several grinding nozzles of different diameters, which are again selected individually. Small nozzles allow the master to skillfully handle the tips of the fingers, the space between the fingers and under them.
Procedures after pedicure
After a session of hardware pedicure, the master offered me a choice of massage with the subsequent application of peeling cream or paraffin therapy. I chose the latter out of interest. The result did not disappoint!
Paraffin therapy perfectly relieves fatigue, moisturizes the skin of the legs, protecting it from flaking, makes it smooth. And the essential oils in the paraffin have a relaxing effect on the entire body.
And what kind of pedicure do you prefer – classic or hardware?
