Growing up in LA, Burke Williams has definitely been one of the leaders in the spa niche, it’s almost like a household name. But don’t let the fact that they have been around a while fool you, this Spa continually impresses me by upping it’s game and offering new, innovative and inspired spa treatments. Recently, they have really been making strides towards expanding their nail care services beyond just pampering because they want to be thought of as more than just a pampering spa, but also as a resource for wellness treatments.
I was recently invited to Burke Williams to try out their new Wellness Pedicure ($85), a next generation nail care treatment that utilizes state of the art technology to rejuvenate your feet by prepping them to absorb products into all five layers of the skin on your feet. This inspired pedi begins with an up close, thorough analysis of the health and condition of your feet by a well trained nail technician. After she inspects your feet, she then recommends a customized treatment and home care.
My diagnosis was that the arches of my feet have dropped as I have gotten older and I should definitely consider orthotic support. In addition, one of my toe nails was lifting away from my skin and she recommended an at home pediceutical product that could fix it. The nail tech also felt that my feet were incredibly dry, so she recommended a thorough deep removal of my dry skin and calluses.
The first phase of this healing pedicure consisted of a series of different methods, tools and products for exfoliation to gently, yet thoroughly remove layers of dry skin from my feet. First, my nail tech used the Clarisonic Pedi device to smooth and soften my feet
Next, she used a professional diamond drill bit to more deeply, yet gently buff away the dry dull skin. I think this is the secret weapon of this Wellness Pedi because the diamond head was able to more thoroughly remove my layers of dry skin and smooth out my pesky summer-overly-dry-from-flip-flops feet without any discomfort or rough peeling
For the the final layer of exfoliation, I added on a yummy FarmHouse Fresh Watermelon Basil Vodkatini Sugar Scrub Seasonal Scrub Enhancement ($10). This scrub smelled absolutely divine, I was totally tempted to eat it!!
