Your comfort is our top priority. This means we don’t take shortcuts in maintaining a clean and sanitary environment. Most salons use a UV light, which is often not effective enough to destroy microorganisms. At once upon a spa we use a medical-grade autoclave and hospital-grade disinfectants to make sure all of our implements, including all those for manicures and pedicures, are completely sterilized.
Any type of pedicure tub or foot spa that circulates water can potentially become a breeding ground for harmful bacteria and at high risk of causing pedicure infections. Since the water has to be passed through tubing and passageways, every inch of this journey leaves possible spots for bacteria to deposit and develop. We use Pedicure bowls that we can completely clean and disinfect. There is nowhere for bacteria to hide and accumulate.
