Razor Blades and Pedicures

credo blade

Razor blade callous shavers, Credo Blades, should not be used during a pedicure! 

A cut on your foot during a pedicure can end up as a serious infection, especially if you are diabetic. That blade may not be clean. The pedicure bath may not be clean. Bacteria or fungus can enter right into that fresh cut and then you will end up with an infection.

Callous builds up on your feet as protection against friction and pressure. If that thick skin is cut off, the feet are left sore and sensitive and that callous comes back with a vengeance! 

It is fine to smooth and reduce the calloused areas with the use of peels, scrubs, pumice stones and foot files. The use a razor blade to remove callous is considered to be a medical procedure is to be done by a medical professional. 

Blades are illegal in all states in the US except Alaska, Delaware, Hawaii, Idaho, Maine, Missouri, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolina, Vermont, Virginia, Washington and West Virginia.

Have a Safe Pedi Day!
