Hardware pedicure - convenient and easy

Hardware pedicure - convenient and easy
«Taking care of yourself» is inherent in every human being. It is well known that every member of the fairer sex always tries to spend as much time on her body as possible so that she can brag about it later on. Speaking about feet, they need regular care. Today, modern cosmetic offices and salons offer a fairly large number of services and procedures for the treatment of both hands, feet and nails. Among the existing technologies and techniques for foot treatment and nail care, hardware pedicure is very widespread.

About hardware pedicure technique

The hardware pedicure is a special technique for foot and nail care and the treatment of some problematic conditions (calluses, corns, etc.). This method allows you to effectively remove the most difficult calluses, dry corns and cracked heels without the use of cutting tools, increasing the effectiveness of treatment of fungal infections at an early stage of their emergence.
Unlike regular pedicures, the so-called hardware pedicure is not necessary in the first place because it doesn't require steaming.
This is very interesting: The 'dry pedicure' is also known as a 'regular' pedicure. This is because it is not always done with water. To soften rough spots on the feet and to disinfect them, the masters use safe cosmetics.

What is needed for a hardware pedicure?

- Special clothing: a white coat, gloves, headscarf and mask.
- A disinfectant that treats not only the client's feet, but also the master's hands.
- The presence of functioning equipment.
- Cutters for pedicure (a necessary tool for pedicure).
You will need a gel remover for your nails, which will soften the nail plate slightly.

The technology of the procedure

The procedure consists of several steps:
First of all, the handyman uses a disinfectant to treat his hands and feet. The purpose of this measure is to prevent possible infection.

1. The skin is softened - a fast-acting softening gel is applied.  After just 10 minutes, the skin is sufficiently porous to begin the treatment.

2. This removes dead cells: the smallest nozzle is used for cuticle treatment; the deburred areas around nails are treated with a bigger nozzle. This treatment involves adding a portion of the cuticle to the nail and adjusting its length.

3. The feet and cuticles are treated. Softening gel is removed and keratinous cells are removed from the feet. The cutters are selected according to the area to be treated. After the foot skin resurfacing is completed, a variety of treatments are applied to the skin. The average treatment time is no more than 20 minutes. Using a tampon holder, the technician treats the toes. The pliers are used to remove burrs, if any. An ingrown toenail is treated with a special softener and then disinfected. The toes are also sanded, but with a smaller nozzle.

4. Nail polishing. At the end of the treatment, the client receives a light foot massage and the polisher rubs oil into the skin. A nail polish is applied. A talcum powder completes the treatment.
