Get your feet looking great with a corns and callouses treatment

Now is the time to get your feet looking and feeling better than ever. Try one of our corns and callouses treatments, otherwise known as a Skin and Nail Consultation, to have the softest, smoothest feet in Sydney.

Corns and callouses are a thickening of the outer layer of the skin. A callous is a set of flat layers of hard skin that sits on the outer layer of skin. A corn is conical-shaped and has a very hard nucleus (core). Corns are usually more uncomfortable than callouses due to this hard core, as it is pushed into the layer of skin that contains nerves (feeling) when we walk.

Corns and callouses are both caused by friction or pressure. This is why they can feel better or worse depending on the shoes that are being worn at the time or the activity being performed.

Other common contributing factors for the development of corns and callouses:

  • Bunions
  • Toe deformities: Retracted toes, claw toes, hammer toes or mallet toes.
  • Bony feet with little padding or “meat”
  • Flat feet
  • High foot arches
  • Tight shoes. Eg. Court shoes, ballet flats, cycling shoes, soccer boots, rock climbing shoes
  • Repetitive exercise. Eg. Running

The treatment for corns and callous is simple. A painless removal of the hard skin is achieved by the podiatrist using a scalpel and careful technique. The podiatrist will give you after care so you can prevent them from returning, but you will be able to walk out of the clinic pain-free immediately after treatment.
