The Sole Purpose Foot Care Difference

Before opening Sole Purpose Foot Care, I was frustrated with the salon industry and its overall lack of concern for a client’s well being and health.  My goal is to properly

care for the health of your feet, as well as your overall health.  I am a Medical Nail Technician (MNT).  I can perform a safe cosmetic pedicure on people who are chronically ill as well as people who are healthy. I provide pedicures for those who are suffering from various health problems:

  • Autoimmune diseases such as:
    • Controlled Diabetes
    • Arthritis
    • Psoriasis
    • Thyroid disease
  • Taking or have taken chemotherapy or radiation

Proper Sterilization and Sanitation

Sole Purpose Footcare Autoclave

One of the differences you may notice when you make your appointment is my concern for proper sterilization.  At Sole Purpose Foot Care, I sterilize all of my implements in an autoclave; a device that uses steam under pressure to kill all bacteria, viruses, fungus and spores on their surfaces.  I also use an e-file with a vacuum system and then autoclave the bits.  Additionally, I use single-use files and buffers for each pedicure.  The state board does not require salons to sterilize their implements in this way.  However, I go above and beyond to provide a safe and healthy atmosphere for my clients. Another method I use to ensure proper sanitation is the waterless pedicure.  A water-less pedicure ensures that your feet remain properly hydrated, as well as avoiding issues with bacteria possible with whirlpool tubs.

Recognizing Foot Care Issues

As the only Medical Nail Technician in the state of Kentucky, I am able to recognize, recommend and refer potential health problems to a doctor.  For example:

  • Spotting lesions on the foot; many diabetics have thick calluses that may hide potential problems.  I would be able to spot these during my examination of your foot.
  • Identifying possible infections on the feet
  • If the  biomechanics of your feet make walking or standing uncomfortable, I can refer you to a podiatrist. You and the podiatrist could discuss orthotics to help relieve some of that pain.
  • Recognizing possible abnormalities through a foot evaluation, such as trauma to the nails.  Or, the potential need  to see a doctor if I think you need to be diagnosed, then treated.

Me and my boyfriend walked out and felt like we were walking on air seriously! We were traveling and only going to be in town for a few days I googled and found Dee Dee's. I picked her because of all the excellent comments. Comments have nothing on the total experience. I feel like I've never had a pedicure until today!! My boyfriend walked out chanting "Dee - Dee do your feet... make my feet feel really sweet" Lol! What a great person what a great experience. Can't wait until the next time... Thank you so much Dee Dee!

Pedicures are pedicures, right? Wrong. Since I first met Dee Dee, I was struck by her passion for people's feet. Her passion is also educational; she taught me, for example, that water on the skin dehydrates, but water in the body hydrates. Maybe everyone else knows that, but I didn't. She also explained that while other facilities may sanitize their implements she sterilizes her's in a autoclave, in the same way a hospital would for surgical equipment. Each time our path would cross she would say, "you have to come in so I can show you what I do." Well, you can only resist her so long...I'm glad I gave in, what a great experience. As you walk into her studio you feel like you're walking into her home, it's very warm and inviting. I waited about 6-7 minutes while she finished with the customer ahead of me. When she brought me back she made me comfortable in a giant leather recliner. Then she began to work her magic! Since Sole Purpose is a water-less system I didn't have the endless foot aerobics like you have at typical shops; in the water, out of the water, in the water...etc. It's far more relaxing to kick the recliner back and watch her do what she loves. Even working on my cuticles, there was never any pain like I'd experienced in the past at other salons. May I also say, the paraffin treatment is terrific! (Worth it!) So in about 45 minutes or so my feet were perfectly tended and ready for my socks that she kindly warmed first. Really a class act both the facility and Dee Dee. Well done!
