ONE JOB…SEVERAL LOCATIONS
OUR BUSINESS IS MOBILE, SO YOU DONT HAVE TO BE
Natural Nail Care…That Delivers!
Many of us takes trips to the nail salon for a relaxing day of hand & foot pampering. What we don’t realize is that serious bacteria can live in the nooks and crannies of these high traffic salons
Why settle for crummy strip mall nail salon chaos when you can experience personal pamering right from the comfort of your location or our private Los Angeles, Ca studio
It’s not until our pedicure leaves us with more than we bargained for, in the form of an infection, pain and even without a toenail, that we begin to look for alternate ways to get a pedicure done.
With a our nail technicians you receive a complete pedicure, along with excellent sanitary procedures to make sure you are never at risk.
Our Tools are never reused between clients and sanitation practices are completed at or above state regulations
Our skillful mobile nail technicians offer the best care with each hand & foot grooming treatment given to provide you with peace of mind where your health is concerned.
Our goal is to deliver a safe relaxing hand & foot grooming experience, with one-on-one attention in a private setting… yours.
During a soakless pedicure, the feet are wrapped in plastic with a hot towel placed over them. We let everything sit for a few minutes and thouroughly wipe off the feet, then we use a foot file to reduce calluses.& perform all other traditional pedicure steps
With a Soakless Pedicure, the worry of how well the tub was cleaned, if at all, or who was in it before you, etc. is completely eliminated, allowing for complete carefree enjoyment.
Footbaths are Gross
Foot baths that are all connected via the same water supply are the most vulnerable. While they clean the tubs, bacteria can still get trapped in the pipes leading to infections.
We use still water footboth our pedicure baths don’t have jets or filters, which is where germs get trapped.
Most nail salons have sterilizers but Mani Pedi To Go uses a medical-grade autoclave used by dentists. It’s a tiny but powerful bacteria-killing machine. After tools are sanitized under high pressure for about 40 minutes, they’re sealed in sanitizer bags.
Unfortunately, along with that pretty pedicure you can take home: hepatitis B and C, cutaneous herpes, warts, bacterial and fungal infec- tions, and even HIV. These can be deadly, especially in the diabetic or immune-compromised patients. People with diabetes are at risk for a number of complications. Foot infections are common. If they develop a break in the skin, it can be a life-threatening complication.
Our skilled nail technicians are highly trained in identifying foot/nail disorders.
Are you embarrassed about your feet’s appearance? Are you constantly hiding them in socks?
Our services give your feet a beautiful, healthy glow while improving their overall health. All treatments are designed with your health in mind, stimulating nerve endings and promoting blood circulation.
For soft, healthy, younger-feeling feet, we apply a humectant spray, brighten nails, exfoliate and debride hard skin buildup. We use a bamboo scrub, then apply a refreshing mint masque to deeply moisturize and firm the skin.
And, we can all agree that when your feet are healthy, the rest of you feels better!
THE ART OF MANICURING:
What does the art of manicuring mean? It means that one knows a great deal about the practical aspects of nails and nail techniques. It presupposes a full and precise knowledge of nails: a well developed sense of needs,popular trends, sensitivity for skin, nail texture, nail shape & nail form, and the ability to coordinate all those elements into hand & foot harmony.
The art of manicuring includes the most simplistic form such as a grandmother’s handed down knowledge, to a more complex pusuit to obtain the knowledge of modern nail technology, coupled with a Manicurist’s sense of artistry, and hospitality .
In summary, the art of manicuring means providing high quality hand and foot service to the complete satisfaction of the hands at hand (or feet).
TIPPING IS GOOD FOR YOUR KARMA
Pedicure Infections: How they happen and how to spot and avoid them.
Pedicure infections are surprisingly very easy to pick up, if proper disinfection guidelines are not followed. Usually occurring in salons and spas that cater to numerous individuals, pedicure infections have been known to get as serious as amputations and even death. The major problem lies in not so much the cleanliness of the utensils as many would assume, although this can lead to serious infection as well, but in the cleanliness of the vessels used to soak the feet.
Water is known to encourage some types of harmful bacterial and fungal growth. Whether it’s in your pool, Jacuzzi or foot spa, water can become a breeding ground for harmful bacteria if not properly disinfected. The problem with moving water is that bacteria is then flushed to the inner tubing or piping and also to the filters that have been put in place to catch debris. Once bacteria gets caught in the filters and inner workings, it sits there, thrives and multiplies amongst the organic debris and reenters the water stream with every circulation cycle. Imagine using the same water over and over to soak your feet! That’s exactly what you’re doing if the foot soak vessel is not properly cleaned.
The bacteria will also need another circumstance to aid in their infection – broken skin. Bacteria can enter the bloodstream through any kind of broken skin. This includes insect bites, scrapes and bruises.
This is why it is so very important to avoid public spas or salons for 24 hours after you’ve shaved your legs, used a hair removal cream or waxed your legs as you may have small openings on your skin. It is of the utmost importance, that if your skin is broken in any way that you stay away from pedicure foot spas that you are not sure have been thoroughly disinfected. In some cases however, where the level of bacteria was so high, people who reportedly did not shave right before using foot spas or claimed not to have broken skin still contracted pedicure infections! This could also be the result of a small scrape or cut going undetected though.
Regular cleaning is just not enough to avoid pedicure infections as serious germs can withstand ordinary cleaners. To avoid harmful bacteria from building to high levels, disinfection is necessary. To kill harmful bacteria, viruses and fungus, the cleaning agent used must an EPA registered hospital or medical grade bactericide, viricide and fungicide. That is, an agent capable of destroying bacteria, viruses and fungus. If your cleaner is not labeled as such, then you are not thoroughly cleaning your foot spas and pedicure sinks.
