Spa pedicures are longer in time than regular pedicures because they come with additional services such as a foot soak, a foot massage and exfoliation, a hot towel rub, and a paraffin wax dip.
These add-ons may or may not be included in the pedicure itself, but they definitely contribute to an enjoyable experience.
The quality of the pedicure itself is exceptional because you have highly trained staff doing what they do best. The professionalism also comes with what tools, products, and techniques they use on your feet.
Normally, the tools are stainless steel and sanitized in a sterilizing device to kill bacteria and dead skin cells.
After the usual clipping of the cuticles, shaping of the nails and brushing away calluses, a spa pedicure will give you a foot massage using a foot cream followed by an exfoliation on the feet and the upper leg using a salt scrub.
This helps to remove dead skin and smooth the surface of the skin.
A paraffin wax dip may be included to moisturize the feet. After the paraffin is completely cooled and removed, the skin becomes soft to the touch.
Much thought is taken into consideration in a spa pedicure because it’s main focus is to maintain the wellness of the whole feet as opposed to a regular pedicure that focuses on regular maintenance of the cuticles and toenails.
A spa pedicure will also give you the pampering experience for the amount of service you get and the price you are paying for.
