Cosmetic treatments for the feet can improve the appearance and functionality of feet and nails due to genetic disorders, acquired deformities, toenail disorders, improper footwear, injuries, the aging process, dermatological conditions, and more.
Some of the most popular cosmetic treatments your podiatrist may offer include:
Laser treatments for fungal toenail infections. Fungal toenail infections are unsightly, uncomfortable, and difficult to treat. This innovative therapy penetrates precise light energy to completely and quickly eradicate toenail fungus, allowing healthy nails to grow in.
KeryFlex Nail Restoration. This cosmetic procedure remodels a patient’s nail that has been damaged due to toenail fungus or injury. Using a composite resin, a beautiful artificial nail is created to allow the natural nail time to develop underneath.
Botox treatments for hyperhidrosis. Hyperhidrosis is excessive and persistent sweating on the feet that is embarrassing, and affects a person’s quality of life. Botox injections block nerves to disable their ability to send activation signals to sweat glands, ultimately leading to a significant reduction in sweat.
Dermatologic treatments. There are a variety of treatments and techniques to take care of skin conditions and disorders. Some of these treatments include cryotherapy, laser treatments, dermabrasion, and surgery to treat warts, moles, varicose veins, skin lesions, dermatitis, infections and more.
Corrective and cosmetic surgery. There are exciting minimally-invasive surgical procedures that can correct painful and unsightly foot deformities such as bunions, hammertoes, crossover and elongated toes. Cosmetic surgical procedures can shorten and reshape toes, narrow feet, and minimize scarring.
Medi-pedis. Medi-pedis are medical pedicures performed by podiatrists combining sterile and waterless foot and nail care with the aesthetic benefits of a salon. Some of the services in a medi-pedi include nail clipping, shaping and buffing, removing dead skin, removing corns and calluses, treating cracked heels, and more.
