Hello, My name is Mary (Marg) Lamont, the owner operator of Stepping Forward Laser & Foot Clinic. I established my business March 2016 after completing a Foot Care education program. I have been working in the health care sector for 25 years starting out as a Resident Care Attendant to Personal Support Worker to a Registered Practical Nurse.
As a Foot Care Nurse, I work as a part of a client’s health care team from your doctor, physiotherapist, diabetic clinic etc., because we all know it takes more than one team member to treat the whole body and as a team, optimal health can be achieved.
My business started out with treating clients from basic foot care to advanced/diabetic foot care and then continued to laser treatments both for medical and aesthetic reasons. Since starting my business word got passed around pretty quick and my clientele built up pretty fast. But with that being said there are still people who do not know this service exists which is why I decided join SSCC.
Caring for our feet can be overlooked until we have pain & discomfort and can be caused by various reasons like injury or co-morbidities like diabetes just to name one.
Foot care treatments involve trimming, filing and reduction of nails, nail correction for involuted or ingrown toenails, corn reduction/removal, calluses etc. Within the past few years I also added laser treatments ranging from inflammation reduction, skin tag removal, hair removal, lesions/pigmentation, acne treatments, etc.
