Callus Care & Skin Treatment

On This Page

Overview

Healthy skin is vital to keeping our feet healthy and problem-free: If the skin on our feet is supple and strong, our feet are less vulnerable to developing a variety of foot issues.  And, if your feet are being properly tended to, should any such issue emerge, healthy feet will also heal faster and be less likely to get infected. 

The chiropodists at our foot clinic provide foot care services for calluses, corns, blisters, cracked heels and any other conditions affecting the skin on your feet. We offer both preventative foot care and skin treatment, as well as treatment services. See the “Services” section below for more details.

Our callus and skincare treatments are very relaxing and pain-free. Most patients report feeling great afterwards.  Our chiropodists use medical-grade instruments and follow an intense sterilization process.  Our chiropodists also thoroughly cleanse your feet with an alcohol solution at the beginning of every appointment. 

In addition to being important for overall foot care and health, routine callus and skin care treatments are highly recommended for diabetic preventative foot care.

Services

What Skin Services Do You Provide For Feet?

Our foot clinic offers the following services to treat and prevent calluses, corns, blisters, and other skin issues affecting your feet:

Regular Callus and Foot Skincare

This can be performed on a routine basis as part of your foot care regimen, and is a great way to prevent many foot-related issues.  The chiropodist will start by properly cleaning your feet with an alcohol solution.  The foot specialist will then safely remove the buildup of tissue and dead skin using chemical and/or mechanical therapies. During your treatment, the chiropodist will also examine your feet, address any complaints of pain and/or discomfort, and properly treat any skin abnormalities.  If requested, the chiropodist can also tend to your toenails at the same time. For more information, check out our medical pedicure service.

Treatment Services for Skin Issues and Concerns

These services target any particular problems or concerns affecting the skin on your feet. They may also be performed during preventative foot care appointments and medical pedicures. Such services include:

  • Callus and Corn Care and Removal: If you have a painful callus or corn, our chiropodist can examine your feet and safely shave down or remove the corn or callus with medical grade, sterilized tools.  (Never try to cut or shave away your callus with a sharp object at home.) The chiropodist will also apply ointment and moisturizer to repair the skin. 
  • Cracked Heel Treatment:  Our chiropodists can treat cracked heels by removing callused skin surrounding the skin cracks and repairing the skin’s elasticity. They can also apply special tape over the fissures to help them close up. 
  • Wound Care: Our chiropodists can debride any wounds, cuts or fissures on your feet, and apply proper dressings to facilitate healing and prevent infection.
  • Tending to blisters: If a blister has popped, the chiropodist can safely drain the blister and apply an antibacterial ointment to prevent infection.
  • Repairing dry or damaged skin on your feet
  • Diabetic Foot Care:  Regular foot care services from a medical health professional is highly recommended for diabetes patients. Since something as small as a cut or callus can cause serious complications in people with diabetes, having a foot specialist tend to the skin on your feet will help prevent infections and foot ulcers. This service allows the chiropodist to detect and treat any skin issues in their early stages.  Click here for more information about our diabetes foot care services
  • Shoe inserts, footwear recommendations or custom orthotics:  These may be recommended for recurrent painful calluses, corns, blisters or cracked heels in order to reduce friction when you move, or offload pressure on specific parts of the foot.

To complement the foot care services provided by our chiropodists, our foot clinic sells a variety of pads and cushions specially designed to treat and prevent corns, calluses and foot blisters.  We also sell an array of foot care products to help you with your at-home foot care regimen. The chiropodists and knowledgeable staff at our foot clinic can recommend and help you find the best products to suit your specific needs.
