Callus Peel - what and why?
If you’ve found yourself avoiding mules and slingback shoes because of the hard skin on the back of your feet, help is at hand. A callus peel is a unique treatment takes off layers of cracked and
hard skin leaving your heels soft and smooth. It is painless, effective and leaves the feet super smooth.
WHAT TO EXPECT? Calluses form when your skin dries out. Pair that with the amount of steps you take every day and calluses are likely to form. A callus peel couldn’t be simpler and is usually performed in these easy steps.
Patch - Your therapist will apply a specially designed skin patch to the bottom of your foot and your heel to soften your skin.
Scraping & Filing - A plastic scraper will be used to gently peel off the callus. The sensation is often described as a soothing one and many people compare it to the relaxing experience of reflexology.
Moisturising - After the callus has been removed, your therapist will polish the healthy skin found beneath before moisturising it with nourishing and hydrating cream.
Callus peels only take 20 minutes, so you can do it on your lunch break and still have time to run other errands!
Although a callus peel is a simple treatment, it may not be suitable if you have particularly dry heels. If your calluses are extremely thick or you’re also suffering from corns, it’s probably best to see a podiatrist first.
Some people compare a callus peel to peeling an orange. This may not be the prettiest mental image, but it does go to show how effective it is!
