Five Steps To Sexy Summer Feet
Warmer weather means we can return to strappy sandals and high heels. But are your feet ready to be on display? Issues like bunions and ingrown nails prevent us from wearing our favorite shoes. The good news is that Millennium Podiatry provides a number of remedies so you can enjoy sexy feet again in the summer. Board-certified podiatric surgeon Dr. Suzanne Levine can make recommendations when you come in for a foot assessment. Call us or read below to discover your options in New York City, NY.
1. Manage hammertoe
Hammertoe is a deformity of one of your toes, causing the joint to become bent and twisted. This condition can be annoying and even embarrassing. It is sometimes caused by constant pressure from ill-fitting shoes. A flexible hammertoe can be corrected with minor surgery, while more rigid hammertoes require a procedure called arthroplasty. This allows us to remove a small portion of the bone to reduce the deformity.
2. Treat ingrown toenails
Tight shoes or improper grooming can cause nails to press into the skin on the side of your toe. Ingrown toenails are painful and can lead to complications, like infection. Severe ingrown toenails can even lead to difficulty walking. Millennium Podiatry can remove the lateral nail plate and perform lateral matricectomy for the best results. Our clinic can preserve as much as the healthy remaining nail plate as possible.
3. Remove bunions
Bunions occur when your big toe turns inward toward the other toes. The joint sticks outward, making it appear large or deformed. While this condition may or may not be uncomfortable, it can get serious without proper treatment. We may recommend special shoe inserts or injections at the base of the big toe to relieve temporary symptoms. Surgery, however, is the best way to address the root of the problem.
4. Address fungal nails
Nail fungus usually starts as a white or yellow spot just under the tip of your toenail. As it grows, the fungus covers more of the area. Your toenail may thicken or crumble at the edges. Even if you don’t need treatment, fungal issues can still cause aesthetic problems. Dr. Levine offers advice for taking care of your toenails at home. We can also offer medications and special laser treatments in New York City, NY.
5. Schedule a Foot Facial®!
Calluses and dead skin cells can prevent you from showing off your stylish high heels. If you want to wear open-toed shoes this summer, try our famous Foot Facial! This luxurious 45-minute treatment can make your feet feel softer and more refreshed than ever. Dr. Levine is proud to have our Foot Facial featured on shows like The Today Show and Access Hollywood. Treatment can also increase circulation and prevent future foot problems from forming.
