Men need pedicures too!

Today’s society is appearance driven for both men and women. Women are no longer the only people wanting to look younger and well maintained. Men are working later in life and are faced with a competitive workforce. The days of just a razor, hair gel and dumbbells are gone. Men are seeking the treatment room. The Top 5 minimally invasive procedures for men are Botox, Microdermabrasion, Laser Hair Removal, Chemical Peels and Laser Skin Resurfacing. Men are also seeking general grooming such as pedicures, manicures and waxing. Feet take a beating with standing on them all day long. They are a breeding ground for bacteria, dead skin and calluses. Your feet carry stress too.

Ask yourself: When was the last time you trimmed or really cleaned beneath your toenails? When did you last scrub the bottom of your feet to get rid of any dead skin or calluses? It is easy to think of pedicures as a fluffy spa indulgence—but most importantly they are relaxing and necessary for foot health! You should also take into consideration the hygienic benefits of actually paying close attention to your feet. Benefits of a pedicure include:

       Improves foot health

       Reduces bacteria

       Eliminates foot odor

       Prevents ingrown toenails

       Relieves stress

       Improves the look and feel of your feet

What separates Schenden’s Medical Day Spa from the standard nail salon is that we provide a private room for a relaxing treatment. Men are sometimes intimidated or embarrassed to go to a salon or spa that has rows of pedicure chairs filled with women. At Schenden’s Spa you are the only one in the room with your nail technician. Our unique pedicure bed will allow you to recline and place your feet in a footbath. We encourage you to disconnect from every day stress an technology and just relax. Stop neglecting your feet. Call today to schedule your pedicure. Your feet will thank you!

Shellac Manicure – join the new trend in manicures!

Have you heard about the newest trend in nails? If you haven’t it is time you learn about Shellac, how amazing it is, how long it lasts, how affordable it is and how little time it takes out of your schedule. It is hard finding time to schedule that weekly manicure or find time for yourself in general, which is why we are so excited about the new product that is revolutionizing the nail industry and making your nails shine for weeks!Normal manicures dull in just a few days, but Shellac is different. It is a gel-polish hybrid that last up to two weeks. It goes on similarly to nail regular polish and is cured under a UV light like a gel nail product, leaving your nails beautifully manicured and virtually indestructible! Typically the shine and shimmer will last nearly 14 days – you gotta love that. No more dull chipped nails.

Shellac cannot be used to lengthen your nails, but it will help you grow them by keeping them strong and flexible. A shorter, natural nail is definitely on trend and more appropriate these days. So, say goodbye to those acrylics and get Shellac’d!

Another Bonus! – there is no more waiting hours for your manicure to dry! Since it is cured under the UV light it is dry nearly instantly, so you can move on with your day without worrying about damaging your nails. Having it removed is also simple and can be done quickly at the spa right before you have Shellac re-applied!

You can see why Shellac is becoming so popular and the new trend in nails. Expect to pay a bit more than your typical manicure for this product, but it is SOOOO worth it considering how long it lasts and how great it looks for weeks! If you are considering Shellac or another nail treatment such as a manicure or pedicure contact the spa at 248.524.3622.
