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.
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.
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:
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.
