Getting My Feet Sandal Ready With Margaret Dabbs | Medical Pedicure* Review | Beauty For The Feet!

Tuesday, 31 July 2018

Last week I was very kindly invited down to the Margaret Dabbs Salon here in Harrogate to try out their Medical Pedicures. It is a thorough overhaul performed on your feet by a qualified Podiatrist which leaves you feeling like you're walking on air, with feet that look and feel brand new. 


Margaret Dabbs is passionate about hands and feet. She is the celebrated podiatrist and foot expert who began Margaret Dabbs London in 1998 from private consulting rooms. It was here she pioneered the now renowned Medical Pedicure and personally crafted her line of award-winning products and treatments, after feeling that beauty products for the feet did not work on a treatment level and that the treatment remedies which were available were often unpleasant to use. With ingredients sourced from around the world, these products were formulated to meet the demands and needs of her patients, while ensuring that the scent, look and feel were unlike anyhting seen on the market before or since. 

If you're after something more than just a cosmetic pedicure then this Medical Pedicure is the one for you. It's a 45 minute treatment which addresses all the aspects of foot health improving the look and feel of your feet. It's performed on dry feet to ensure exceptionally long lasting results. Nails are re-hydrated, leaving them revitalising and glowing, the fusion of health and beauty utilises their own range of fabulous foot care products, which are expertly formulated by Margaret herself and contain Emu Oil which is anti-ageing and moisturising properties, leaving feet looking and feeling 10 years younger!


I have had one of these pedicures previously so to be able to go back and have another one was absolutely blissful. My feet were in need of some attention as 99% of the time they are hidden in socks and shoes so when Summer makes an appearance (which seems to have been earlier and longer lasting this year more than any other!) they are definitely NOT sandal ready! I knew I had had some fungal infection last time when Jane did my pedicure. It was no different this time but thankfully my beauty therapist Muhammad easily got rid of it by filing away the top layer of skin. He then set to work buffering and filing my toenails to ensure all the nails were all even and didn't contain any sharp edges which could lead to ingrown toenails. (which I have previously suffered from on my big toes.)

Some people have said 'did it tickle' but honestly it didn't! Because of the Dyshidrotic ecxema I suffer from the soles of my feet, it was quite a relief to have someone down there itching them for me! After the treatment was completed, I went downstairs to see Shanice who painted my nails a really gorgeous coral colour! My feet are definitely sandal ready now! 

The Margaret Dabbs Salon is set out so beautifully, I always feel so relaxed whenever I go in there and I know my friends do too! There's something about heading into such a place which just instantly relaxed the mind and eases any stresses you may have. The staff are just so lovely too, always happy to help you out and out you at ease should you be feeling a bit nervous. All of the team have been specially trained by Margaret herself to ensure only the highest standards throughout your treatments are met and held. You can rest assured that each member of staff is only the very best to deliver the highest results. 

To go with my treatment I was very kindly gifted a number of products to help me keep my feet (and hands) in tip top condition at home. The Margaret Dabbs London products are the first true, expert-led beauty regime for hands and feet. They're sold at some of the most premium and respected retailers globally and the specialist treatments are performed at leading hotels and spas worldwide.

I used this last time I went to the salon and had a taster of the Medical Pedicure and my feet loved it! I was really sad when it ran out, I even took off the pump of the bottle to get the last remaining drops! Perhaps I will need to pop down and buy another bottle.....! 

I can highly recommend this Medical Pedicure if your feet are needing a bit of attention this Summer! The team down at the Margaret Dabbs Salon in Harrogate are so welcoming and will look after you so well so please do give them a call or pop in and book an appointment, you'll not be disappointed!
