  • Why Medical Pedicures vs. traditional Pedicures?
    While a traditional cosmetic pedicure focuses on making your toenails look as good as possible and gets rid of some dead skin, it ignores real problems and sometimes creates them. Not to mention, your feet are on display in front of all the other customers. Unlike nail salons, our professionals are trained to examine and treat foot and nail disorders using advanced equipment and tools and the strictest hygiene protocols. A medical pedicure is often performed in the private setting of a medical clinic.
  • Who could benefit most from a Medical Pedicure?
    Because the benefits of a medical pedicure are more than just cosmetic, we think everyone would be better off with a medical pedicure. However, medical pedicures are crucial for: Diabetic patients, arthritis sufferers, runners, ballet and other dance professionals, athletes and fitness pros, doctors and nurses, actors and performers (Broadway? We’ve got you!), professionals who need to work on their feet, anyone who wears high heels daily and anyone self-conscious about their feet.
  • What actually happens in a Medical Pedicure?
    The medical pedicure treatment is performed by Precious Renee’. After an evaluation of your feet, we dedicate the first half-hour to cleaning the feet and toenails, trimming, and if necessary, removing calluses, and ingrown nails. In the last half hour, Precious Renee’ will finish the cleaning of your feet and remove any lingering dirt and debris gently from under your toenail, as well as hydrating the feet to prevent your feet from becoming dried out and cracked. The entire process can take about 60 to 90 minutes depending on the condition of the feet and any add-on services. The medical pedicure treatment includes A full assessment and consultation on the condition of feet, skin, and toenails. Extensive cleaning and cleansing, sanding, buffing, and shaping of the nails to remove dead cells and achieve maximum comfort. Removal of dead skin and buffing of the feet, removal of blisters, and ingrown toenails. Smoothing out of calluses and dry, cracked heels finishing with a Reflexology massage. Restoration of natural toenail color, application of base, and topcoat. Note: We don’t use water to perform the cleaning. We don’t do manicures or designs. A foot paraffin treatment, keratin socks, hot stones, and a foot facial can be added to the service for an additional cost.
  • What is your standard for hygiene?
    At The Nourish Boutique NYC, we have the highest standards for hygiene and sanitation. All equipment goes through autoclave sterilization, preventing the spread of germs, fungus, and diseases.
  • What if I’m late for my appointment?
    Unfortunately, we won’t be able to treat you - if you’re not on time for your appointment. There will be a charge for the missed appointment and possibly an additional rescheduling fee. Our goal is to give each one of our clients the time and TLC deserved. It is extremely important to arrive on time. (Please refer to our Policies page)
  • Do we use nail polish?
    We think your bare, buffed toenails look gorgeous on their own, so we actually don’t stock nail polish. Our pedicures are purely focused on the health of your feet. * Please remove any visible polish or gel from toenails prior to your appointment to avoid being charged. $2 per toe for regular polish, $4 per toe for gel.
