Legs are the most important part of the body, because theydaily exposed to heavy loads. This is especially true of the feet, since it is our feet that withstand the weight of the whole body. Tight and uncomfortable shoes, as well as poor ventilation, fungal infections, and many other factors can lead to calluses and corns, damaged leg skin. Prevent this can appropriate care and regular pedicure procedure. So, what is a hardware pedicure and what is its difference from the traditional one?
Features of the hardware pedicure
A traditional foot care procedure, orclassical pedicure, involves the pairing of the skin of the feet in a bath with water. The hardware pedicure excludes softening of the feet with water, and this has a lot of advantages. To soften the skin use a special oil or spray, which is applied to the feet for a while. This "clever" remedy acts solely on dead and dead skin cells, without touching the living layers of the skin. And water, on the contrary, softens completely all layers of the skin. This increases the risk of injury, cutting alive skin. In addition, the softener has also a disinfectant and healing property. The very processing of the skin of the legs is made by a special apparatus with grinding nozzles and cutters. The skin is not cut with a blade, as in classical pedicure, so this type of procedure was also called the unedged pedicure. In addition, the cuticle and the thin skin around the nails are also not cut, where the risk of injury is increased. Grinding jaws have a different diameter, from the broadest for processing feet and heels, to small semicircular nozzles, allowing to do "jewelry" work between the fingers and near the nail, where the edging razor of classical technology does not reach.
History of occurrence
Hardware pedicure appeared for the first time in the 60's20th century. German firm Gerlach proposed the idea of using the technique used in the dental practice to care for the feet. Thus, the first grinding tools and a cutter for foot care appeared. Initially, the hardware pedicure could only be done by doctors to treat such problems of the feet as the puffiness, calluses, hardening of the foot, ingrown nail. In the future, a special apparatus for pedicure was used to care for the feet of people suffering from diabetes. Such people are reduced pain and temperature threshold, thinning of the skin, worsening blood coagulation. Therefore, any injury can result in undesirable consequences. With a hardware, unedged pedicure, the risk of injury is minimized. In Russia, the appearance of a pedicure hardware took place about 10 years ago, also initially as a medical medical procedure. However, after evaluating all the advantages of a hardware pedicure, this procedure began to be done in many beauty salons. To date, it is also common not only pedicure, but also hardware manicure.
