While medical manicures and pedicures focus on pampering, we take infection control precautions that exceed those featured in most typical procedures. The staff who perform medical fingernail care (medical mani) are trained nurses who respond to medical conditions such as diabetes, thickened nails and fungal infections.
A typical medical manicure will begin by checking nails and hands for injury and infection— trimming, reducing thickened nails if needed, filling and lotion application.
