Pedicure for ingrown toenails

Hi all,
I'm new in Zurich and I'm trying to find a professional pedicure whose goal is not just to make my toenails look pretty, but to cut my toenails in more medical way. So, I need someone who can treat ingrown toenails. If I go to a good pedicurist every month, which I've been doing so far, then everything is under control. Does anybody know someone who can do it well? Thanks

I suppose pretty much every pedicure can help you, or not?

Try to check zuri.net for ratings and reviews before just booking with a random one.

Re: Pedicure for ingrown toenails

Tnx! I had a problem once when I was in a foreign country and went to a pedicure, but they didn't treat my problem with ingrown nails at all. They just made them look nice and polished them and that was the whole point. So, this time I am very specific=).

Re: Pedicure for ingrown toenails

In Switzerland, me make a distinction between
- Pedicure / Podologie (Institute, salons etc..) = treatment (medical to a certain extent and what you need here) and
- Fusspflege (beauty treatment only = people working there are not authorised to do other treatment such as the one you describe).

So look for pedicure or podologie in the phone book.

I know someone, but she's in Zofingen. Would that be too far for you?

Re: Pedicure for ingrown toenails

Yes, a bit too far for me, but in case I won't be lucky here in Zurich I will definitely ask you for the pedicurist's phone number. Tnx!

Re: Pedicure for ingrown toenails

I agree with FMX. a Fusspflege or pedicurist, is not trained medically.

Have a look here...
