We can hardly believe we are half way through June and have just had the longest day! It’s been nearly 3 months since the return of skin and beauty treatments at Podology and we have enjoyed having the full team of podiatrists, beauty therapists and front of house staff – back together. Our podiatrists are very busy currently as people return for treatment after shielding during the pandemic. We strongly advise you make an appointment as soon as possible and schedule in your regular future appointments to avoid disappointment. The beauty diary is also filling up fast as people choose to pamper themselves after this rather traumatic year! With some fabulous NEW skin diagnostics and facial treatments available – we have really upped our game!

ENDYMED Instagram LIVE
Last Friday we did an INSTAGRAM LIVE with Jenny the Endymed expert. Jenny spoke to our audience about Endymed Radiofrequency treatments and why they really are the answer to give you a non surgical facelift – naturally! All while our lead therapist Amy carried out a treatment to show you how it works. A typical course of treatments is 4 x weekly and 2 x fortnightly treatments. From the age of 25 our collagen production begins to slow down. This treatment heats up the tissue to around 40 degrees which triggers a response in collagen production. Creating lift and plumping of the skin as well as a natural glow! The instagram live was also an opportunity for those watching to ask questions and there was some great ones! Here is the link to rewatch the LIVE – its very informative if this is a treatment you are considering! https://www.instagram.com/tv/CQRIa8fqg4x/?utm_medium=copy_link
Podiatrist Maddie Pidgeon has been with us for a year now. Maddie joined our team after graduating with a podiatry degree last year from New College Durham. Since joining our team she has trained in SWIFT verruca treatment and Clearanail fungal nail treatment. Maddie is from Saltburn and actually came to us on work experience while she went to Prior Pursglove college to see if podiatry was the correct career choice. We are really proud of Maddie’s achievements in the last year especially in the circumstances of the global pandemic. Maddie has settled in really well and has a fantastic work ethic and a calm approach to her treatments.
Beauty therapist Katherine Drysdale has some fantastic news! Katherine is expecting her second baby later in the year and we offer congratulations to Katherine, Lewis and Joshua.

COVID-19 Procedures update
The clinic has been running really well with our covid-19 procedures. We now operate with each staff member working from a room. We have removed our express treatment area. We have space between waiting area chairs and screens segregating them. We have windows open in rooms where available, We use HEPA fans when a window isn’t present and we have ceiling ventilation in each room allowing exchange of air constantly. All rooms have sneeze screens available for use too. We are committed to sanitising touch points such as door handles, reception desks etc regularly. We use Trionic and Clinell products to clean down our rooms after each treatment. We have invested in more bedding and towels for skin and spa treatments – so the bedding is removed and washed between clients. Let’s remind you of what will happen at your appointment:
What happens at your appointment?
PLEASE COME ALONE TO YOUR APPOINTMENT AND ARRIVE ON TIME.
HAVE YOUR MASK/FACECOVER ON BEFORE YOU ENTER THE BUILDING.
THERE IS AN AUTOMATIC SANITISER MACHINE AND TEMPERATURE MONITOR TO USE ON ENTRY.
YOU WILL BE ASKED TO PAY FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT AS YOU ARRIVE.
YOUR PODIATRIST/BEAUTY THERAPIST WILL MAKE ANY FUTURE APPOINTMENTS FOR YOU AT THE END OF YOUR TREATMENT AND SAFELY ESCORT YOU OUT OF THE BUILDING.
PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND YOUR APPOINTMENT IF YOU HAVE A HIGH TEMPERATURE OR NEW AND PERSISTENT COUGH OR HAVE LOST YOUR SENSE OF SMELL AND TASTE. PLEASE SEEK THE ADVICE OF 111 IF YOU HAVE ANY OF THESE SYMPTOMS.
We hope you’ve enjoyed our update and look forward to seeing you soon
