Here’s what they had to say:
Do a nail self exam between treatments.
“Examine your nails after the gel polish comes off and if you notice anything going on, see a dermatologist before you reapply any polish,” Taub says. Same is true of your toenails, adds Krista Archer, DPM. “When you get a pedicure, don’t just read People magazine and text your friends, look at your toes to see if there is anything going on.”
Spring is here, summer is on its way, and with the increasing sunshine remember that May is Melanoma Awareness Month. If it hasn’t already become a daily habit, now is the season that you cannot forget to put sunblock on your face–every single day. Read my story and ‘don’t forget your ears.’

I was a science geek in high school where I especially loved biology and anatomy. This led to a pre-med track in college. After graduation I was a lab rat—literally working with rats and monkeys and rabbits in bone research for a major biopharmaceutical corporation. I was trained in surgical techniques and principles, learned quickly, and loved performing bone surgery. Simultaneously, I met a coworker’s husband who was training in foot and ankle surgery. While watching one of his foot surgeries, I realized that a rabbit ulna and a human metatarsal are strikingly similar. I was also surprised by the fact that the surgery I was already doing in the lab was very similar to the surgery happening in the hospital operating room. I was intrigued and I applied to Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine that same year. I moved to Philly that summer to start classes and the rest is history.
Many people have ball of foot pain, which can be caused by fat pad thinning. Sculptra® is a dermal filler commonly used in the face that can replace volume in the balls of the feet. These injections are well tolerated and give the desired ‘cushioned’ effect in 2-3 visits. Pain in the balls of the feet is dramatically reduced, which improves the physical and emotional well-being of the patient. READ MORE.

HBO’s Sex and The City has been off the air for years (not counting syndication), but actress Sarah Jessica Parker is making news again as Carrie Bradshaw, her beloved SATC character.
Yes, Carrie Bradshaw loved stilettos as much as she loved Mr. Big and her cronies, but unfortunately this love of all things Manolo is responsible for the actress’s current foot problems, and now she is going on a Jimmy Choo-free diet.
After your next pedicure instead of opting for the latest Essie color, Dr. Archer suggests going ‘toe nail bare’ for 2 weeks, and implementing a daily foot regimen. Spend 3-5 extra minutes a day around shower-time; 1) use a foot file or pumice stone with a scrub (ie, Sole Savour Scrub), 2) take a seat after the shower and massage a nail oil (ie, Sole Savour Nail Oil) into your nails and cuticles, 3) then apply foot cream (ie, Sole Savour Creme) into all rough, dry skin around heels and bottom of feet. Dr. Archer recommends using her own ‘skincare for feet’ Sole Savour product line called ARCH by Dr. Krista Archer. Also, carefully inspect your toenails, and if you see thickening, brittleness, or discoloration seek treatment now instead of waiting until next year.
