Waterless pedicures are more sanitary. A waterless pedicure eliminates any potential for soaking in dirty water. Personally, I always questioned the cleanliness of the pedicure bowls and how well they are cleaned between uses. A lot of salons have clients back-to-back so you can imagine there isn’t a whole lot of time for scrubbing and sanitizing equipment between clients. At Wellness Suites Weston they fit 15 minutes of recovery time into their schedule between each client to ensure they have enough time to clean and get the room ready for the next person. They also never reuse utensils such as files, cuticle pushers, or buffers. They even offer them to you to take home at the end of your treatment.
Waterless pedicures are also safer, especially for diabetics. I am not a diabetic, but I recently learned that diabetics suffer from poor circulation, which means it takes the body longer to heal itself. It’s not uncommon for the skin on the feet to become dry and cracked especially during the cold, winter months. But diabetic or not, if you have a small knick or cut while soaking in potential bacteria infested water, it could lead to serious health problems.
Many of us find soaking in warm water to be soothing and relaxing, but maybe we should rethink this traditional scenario.
I learned that soaking in warm water for longer than a couple minutes actually dehydrates the skin rather than moisturizing it. Even though soaking does soften the cuticles, it’s better to use a cuticle remover cream or gel because the water could soften the cuticles so much that they tear which could lead to potential infections.
Lastly, waterless pedicures can last longer. Soaking in water causes your natural nails to swell and expand, so as the nails dry they contract and shrink. If the polish is applied before the nails naturally shrink back, the polish may crack and peel. By spending the time and money to be pampered, you want to prolong the life of your pedicure.
After learning all the benefits and having such a pleasant experience at Wellness Suites Westo, I am not sure I can go back to the traditional water pedicures I’m used to. I highly recommend visiting AgeLess SPA for a waterless treatment because I promise you will be pleased with their level of professionalism, cleanliness, and overall experience of the treatment.
Also, spring is right around the corner, so make sure you make your appointment as soon as possible because you are going to be wearing those open-toed shoes before you know it!
