Most nail salons provide pedicures to men as well as women. However, there are some salons that cater specifically to men. Nail salons that exclusively provide services to male clients are typically located in large metropolitan areas.
Pedicures can help prevent ingrown nails. When nails grow into the skin, instead of over it, the result can be painful. Sometimes surgery is necessary to correct the condition.
Pedicures can also alleviate the symptoms of athlete's foot. During a pedicure, dead skin is removed. This helps prevent calluses on the heels. If left untreated, calluses can lead to painful tears in the skin.
