Is it a wart or callus on your foot?  Both occur on the bottom of the foot but they are different.  Plantar warts are caused by a virus that enters the foot through a break in the skin.  A callus is a thickening of the skin due to pressure.  How can you tell the difference?  Warts often have black dots which are capillaries along with tiny nerves that grow into the warts.  Also, pinch it.  If it is painful it's likely to be a wart.  If not, it's probably a callus.

Did you know that the color and condition of your nails reflects the health of your body?  Be sure to eat a good, varied diet full of fruits and vegetables.  If you nails are weak and brittle taking a supplement for hair/nails can help strengthen both substantially

August Nail Spa Special...$29 Gel Manicure (regularly $40).  Call 425-0668 to make your appointment today!

Are you diabetic and you have never had a pedicure for fear of infection?  That is a very real fear and one you are smart to be concerned about.  At  Foot & Ankle Centers, Dr. William Cohen sees many diabetic patients who have very serious complications from diabetes so he knows how important it is to be very careful with diabetic feet.  At the Nail Spa at FAC we offer a diabetic pedicure that doesn't use hot towels as we understand that neuropathy is a very real complication of diabetes and we would never want to risk any kind of burn, etc.  We take all of the necessary precautions with cleanliness by surgically sterilizing all instruments, using a disposable nail tub, and only using files and buffers on each individual client.  The Mayo Clinic in Minnesota (mayoclinic.com), a world renowned medical center, wrote this article about diabetes and pedicures that also references being extremely careful about your pedicures, http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/diabetes-and-pedicures/MY00537 .

Call our nail spa today at 615.425.0668 to schedule your appointment for a diabetic pedicure or a manicure.  You'll be glad you did!
