Callus Peel – Cracking those cracked heels…

The Therapy Cabin avatar

Using the Callus Peel is as easy as peeling an Orange for callused heels.  Ok, well, not quite, but it is easier than the usual callus peel routine.  For summer and even party seasons, nothing looks worse than having cracked heels with fabulous sling backs or sandals with feet out on show.

A Callus Peel, is a simple 4 step system which includes a skin softening cream that softens the skin.  The length of the treatment, depends on the amount of Callus you have to remove, and what else you choose to have done at the same time.

Callus Peel Treatment for Cracked Heels

  • Clean the feet.
  • Place the softening cream around the bottom of the foot.
  • Wrap it with vinyl wrap, leaving it on for ten minutes if the the callus is thin, and up to 25 minutes if the callus is very thick, helping it along with moisture and a few lovely hot towels.
  • Scrape and file the softened callus, using a purpose made tool, and buff the callus.
  • Complete the treatment by applying the special Callus Peel moisturising cream.

The innovative callus removal will soften hard calluses quickly, to allow them to be scraped and filed away, which leaves clean and soft skin.

With this treatment, we don’t need to soak your feet beforehand as it works best on dry feet.

Aftercare

After the treatment, it is recommended that you moisturise your feet twice a day, or your feet will begin to dry out after your treatment.

How often should I have a treatment?

It depends on your lifestyle and what type of shoes you wear but we recommend a treatment every 2-3 weeks, although good results are seen after the first treatment.  Callus Peel is a treatment not a cure.

Is it hygienic?

Yes.  Your Therapist is fully qualified and will know all the procedures for hygiene.   The Foot File Scraper can be sterilised and the File Replacement Pads are replaced for each client.

Does the treatment hurt?

No, it doesn’t hurt at all – on the contrary.  It feels like you are receiving a reflexology treatment.  It will only hurt if you have cuts on your skin.  Dry cracks are fine, as long as they are not weeping or bleeding.

Any side effects?

None, as Callus Peel is only for callused/dry areas on the feet.

Why do calluses appear?

Pressure applied to the feet over time causes the skin to harden and calluses to appear.
