Calluses / hard skin can be treated on your feet by using a simple four step process … Instant Results and Softer Heels ready for flip flops and party shoes!
A callus is the body’s way of protecting against external force and pressure. If you remove it all at once then it will reform thicker and faster, as (to your body at least) it didn’t protect well enough…
However if you remove it slowly through regular Callus Peel treatments, combined with a good moisturising home care routine … they will not reform.
How does Callus Peel work to keep the skin on your feet soft and callus free?
The skin soft peel (patch) gently penetrates into the epidermal layer of the foot softening the callus to enable dead skin to be gently removed and then smoothed.
This treatment is then followed by a soothing, conditioning moisturiser which then leaves you with sandal ready soft feet!
Questions & Answers:
How long does it take?
To treat both feet will take approximately 30 minutes – 15 minutes for the patches to soften the skin and 10/15 minutes for the rest of the treatment.
NB. Time of treatment may vary depending on the condition of your heels, but cost will not!
How often should I have a treatment?
We recommend a treatment every 2-3 weeks, although results are seen after the first treatment.
Is it safe?
Yes. Callus Peel use cosmetic ingredients only.
Is it hygienic?
Yes. The Callus Peel Skin Softener (sachets) are individually packaged. All tools are sterilised and the Foot File has disposable pads.
Can it be used on other areas of the body?
No. The Callus Peel treatment must ONLY be used on the feet (heels, soles or the side of the big toe) where callus appears and must NOT be applied to areas where there isn’t any callus.

Aqua, Glycerin, Nonoxynol-12, Carbomer, Ethanol, Sodium Hydroxide, Tataric Acid, Lactic Acid, Pyroglutamic Acid, Ethoxy Diglycol.

Does the treatment hurt?
No, it doesn’t hurt at all. On the contrary, it feels like you are receiving a reflexology treatment.
Why do Calluses Appear?
Pressure applied to the feet over time causes the skin to harden and calluses to appear.
