Instructions for machine-made pedicuring:
Only skilled pedicurist can work with machines!
Only special machines made for this purpose and the adherent burr-drills (e.g. millers, rakers) as well as polishers of different degrees of fineness can be used. It is not required to apply paper polishers for machines used in water as they make the machines clog up. Pay attention not to apply burr-drill head that is thicker than 6 mm as these will not fit in the machine. Continue reading
