Elim – Medical grade pedicure
Elim is a medical grade pedicure treatment which uses state of the art ingredients to remove hard skin and calluses from the feet
OUT WITH THE OLD, IN WITH THE NEW
A Facial for your feet is how the treatment is described -The Medi Heel Peeling systems offers a chemical alkaline peel which offers a much safer and more efficient method thereby enhancing the overall treatment experience that is a Pedicure.
Elim products use facial grade ingredients, such as AHAs
THE HEEL PEEL
The heel peel is carried out at the very beginning of the treatment. During which the pH of the skin is altered using “The Callus Tonic”. The tonic breaks down protein bonds that bind together the dead cells of the epidermis (callused skin). The main ingredient is Sodium Hydroxide and this is left on for a maximum of 10 minutes.
Once your 10 minutes are up the removal process begins using a scraper and a pumice. The scraper removes most whilst the pumice gently buffs and tidies with minimum pressure.
Once the removal process has been completed on both feet the “pH Neutraliser” will be applied to all areas where the tonic has touched the skin. This is an important step as it rebalances the pH and helps maintain the soft supple heels post treatment. The pH Neutraliser contains Citric acid and Aloe Vera.
If your feet are somewhat over due a pedicure then please note that it may take more than 1 appointment to remove all callused areas. We will chat about this pre and post treatment so that you have a realistic overview of what can be achieved using this treatment. The treatment can be carried out fortnightly and there are products you can use to maintain your pedicure at home.
There are two pedicures to choose from; the express and the luxury.
The express goes as far as the heel peel, which is followed up with the Foot Perfector; a unique balm made up of a gel powder formula that ensures nourished and protected feet with a non-slip finish.
But if you want a real special treat then go all the way with the Luxury Elim Pedicure. Let me tell you whats included.
