Foot Care Services Kitchener

$55 for Routine and Diabetic Foot Care Visits

Book 45 minutes for new clients (due to initial assessment and foot care) and 20 minutes for subsequent visits.

Description:

  • The client will receive a full medical pedicure with each of these foot care visits.
  • Medical pedicures are “dry pedicures” meaning we don’t soak the feet unless we have to remove very hard callus—only then will we soak for 10 minutes max. This has been mandated by the College of Nurses and the College of Chiropodists/Podiatrists as a means of proper infection control.
  • Sterile tools only, sterilized as per Public Health guidelines and PIDAC (Provincial Infectious Disease Advisory Committee)
  • Feet disinfected with chlorhexadine prior to care (best practice guideline). This is discussed with all new clients.
  • Sterilized basin provided for soaking due to very hard calluses. No soaking at home as feet will dry to quickly.

$75 for Wart Treatments Visits

Book 20 minutes. Book follow up visit in one month to assess the area for need for further treatment. ($25 if just F/U, book 20 mins.) (May need another treatment, if so charge $75)

Description:

  • Clinician assesses lesion to be treated:
    • Foam-tipped skin tag removal tweezers
    • Foam-tipped applicator for shallow or smaller lesions
    • Isolation funnel for deep or larger lesions
  • Will treat 1-3 warts per treatment

If using isolation funnel:

Not indicated for lesions on head or neck. Allow for a 1mm circumference of good tissue surrounding lesion for effective treatment—this is a factor in determining size of funnel used. Press isolation funnel firmly around lesion to ensure no cryogen leaks out during treatment. Spray inside wall of funnel lightly for approx. 3-6 secs to accumulate 1/8 – 4mm of cryogen within funnel—covering lesion. Allow 20-40 secs for treatment of lesion. Wait until cryogen has evaporated before removing funnel. An “ice ball” will have formed over lesion—this is normal. Don’t touch. Allow 25-40 seconds to thaw.

If using foam-tipped applicator:

Allow for a 1mm circumference of good tissue surrounding lesion to allow for effective treatment—this is a factor in determining size of foam-tipped applicator used. Spray foam-tipped applicator , while rotating applicator, until it drips 1 time to ensure it is saturated with cryogen . Wait 10 secs for crystals to form on foam tip. Press firmly into lesion for 20-40 secs. An “ice ball” will have formed over lesion—this is normal. Don’t touch. Allow 25-40 seconds to thaw.

$75 for Skin Tag Removal

Book 20 minutes. Book follow up visit in one week to assess the area for need for further treatment. ($25 if just F/U, book 20 mins.) (May need another treatment, if so charge $75)

Description:

  • Treat face, neck and body only, not genitals
  • Will treat 1-3 skin tags per treatment
  • Only skin tag removal at these visits

Spray foam-tipped tweezers, while rotating applicator, until it drips 1 time to ensure it is saturated with cryogen. Wait 10 secs for crystals to form on foam tip. Squeeze skin tag at base for 20-40 secs. The skin at the base of the skin tag will turn “white”—this is normal. Don’t touch. Allow 25-40 seconds to thaw. Skin tag should fall off in approx. 1 week after treatment.

What Do Your Feet Say About Your Health?

As we age our bodies heal more slowly, and become less elastic and able to compensate for small injuries or awkward movements.
