Comprehensive Nail and Skin Care at Happy Feet Podiatry
Ensuring Healthy Feet with Expert Care and Sterilisation Standards
At Happy Feet Podiatry, we believe in a holistic approach to foot care that combines expert treatment with uncompromising safety and hygiene practices. Our general podiatry services, including meticulous nail trimming, callus removal, and corn treatment, are designed not only to provide relief but to promote overall foot health in a clean and safe environment.
Nail Trimming: Precision and Hygiene
Regular nail trimming is vital for maintaining foot health, but doing it correctly is equally important to prevent issues like ingrown toenails and infections. Our podiatrists use sterile, professional-grade instruments for every patient to ensure the safest and most effective treatment.
Our Sterilisation Process for Nail Trimming Instruments Includes:
– Autoclaving instruments after each use to eliminate all viable microorganisms, including spores
– Single-use instruments where applicable to ensure no cross-contamination
– Strict adherence to Australian health and sterilisation standards for maximum patient protection
Proper nail care is more than just cosmetic—it’s a key component of foot health. Ingrown nails, fungal infections, or thickened nails can cause discomfort and lead to more serious complications. Our services include:
– Safe trimming and shaping of nails
– Treatment for fungal nail infections using advanced 1064 YAG laser technology
– Management of ingrown toenails, including conservative care and minor nail surgeries
– Safe cutting and shaping of toenails to prevent ingrown nails
– Thinning of thickened nails to reduce pressure and discomfort
– Advice on nail care at home to maintain optimal nail health
Calluses and Corns
Calluses and corns, while part of the body’s defense against pressure and friction, can become painful and lead to mobility issues. Our gentle and effective treatments can alleviate discomfort and restore the smoothness to your skin. Our approach includes:
– Careful debridement of calluses and corns
– Identification and modification of pressure points in footwear
– Gentle debridement to remove hard skin and reduce thickening
– Assessment and modification of foot mechanics to prevent recurrence
– Protective padding and offloading techniques to alleviate pressure
– Education on prevention and proper foot care techniques
Cracked heels are not only unsightly but can also be painful and a potential entry point for infection. Our targeted treatments can help heal and rejuvenate your heels. We offer:
– Removal of hard skin and reduction of heel fissures
– Moisturising treatments and recommendations for at-home care
