Keeping your toenails trimmed properly is important for good foot health. Lifestyle choices, footwear, hobbies, disease and aging can contribute to changes in the nail. Quite often nails become difficult, if not impossible, to cut by yourself. Whatever the reason, you can trust our expert podiatrists to correctly and effectively trim your nails and advise you on how best to maintain good foot health.
We use podiatry-grade toenail clippers. Proper trimming is the best way to prevent ingrown toenails from forming or recurring along with good easy to follow advice. It also prevents injury in patients with diabetes and other chronic diseases, as a small nick in the skin could easily become infected and turn into a much bigger problem. We are well-practised in the correct way to trim toenails.
Hygiene is of the utmost importance to us; therefore, all instruments are cleaned in our ultrasonic cleaner and sterilized in our medical grade sterilizer and treatments are carried out using medical grade PPE.
Our Nail Care appointment is not recommended for any nail conditions that cause excessive curvature or excessive thickening of the nails or if you have an active ingrown toenail, however your podiatrist will advise you best about this. If your nails need buffed down to reduce thickness, then please book one of our chiropody appointments or if you are feeling like a complete over hall treat yourself to our signature deluxe chiropody appointment.
If you request cancellation of your appointment with less than 24 hours’ notice you are still liable for this payment. What to bring to your appointment?
