What is the purpose of a Callus Heel Peel?Calluses occur when pressure is applied to the feet and over time the skin begins to harden and calluses form. Callus Peel is a fast and efficient way of removing a build up of hard, cracked or dry skin from your feet. It is fantastic for neglected feet or if you suffer from pain because of a build up of hard skin.
What will happen during my treatment? A patch will be applied to the areas on your feet to be treated. Then your feet will be wrapped up in clingfilm and the peel will take effect. Your therapist will then unwrap your feet and peel at the hard skin with a specially designed tool. Next your feet will be filed to remove excess hard skin, and finally you will have a special rejuvenating cream rubbed in to help keep them soft. You will immediately be able to see and feel the amazing effects of the treatment.
How long will my treatment take? To treat one area on both feet takes around 20 minutes, although we allow 30 mins in total. If the callus is very hard, it may require a follow up a few days later, but the results will be significant after just 1 treatment. If you require 2 areas to be treated on each foot, we allow 40 minutes for your treatment although it will take between 30 and 40 mins. How can it benefit me? Many people can experience pain when walking because of hard skin on their feet and left untreated, cracks can begin to form which can be very uncomfortable. This treatment will leave your skin feeling fabulous.
Can anyone receive treatment? The Callus Peel is suitable for all ages if you suffer with cracked, dry or hard skin on your heels, soles or sides of toes. There are some conditions which would prevent a callus peel treatment being carried out. These are listed below. If you have any of theses conditions at the time of your appointment, you will not be able to receive a callus peel treatment: diabetes, psoriasis, open cuts, pregnancy (please wait till after the baby is born and then you can have a real treat for your feet), veruccas or fungal nail infections.
How often should I have a callus peel? The recommended interval between appointments is every 2-3 weeks. This can vary from client to client though and it depends how long hard skin takes to build up on your feet. For clients with excessively hard skin, another treatment may be required approximately 4 days after the initial treatment to really take affect, and then 2 weeks after that. A maintenance programme can be worked out for you, or of course you can just book one and see what you think!
