Corns and Calluses

Corns and Calluses are hardened layers of skin that develop from your skin's response to friction and pressure. These are classic examples of how a relatively small issue can pose a significant nuisance, from both the cosmetic perspective but more importantly, by causing persistent pain and thereby impacting on function.

Corns and Calluses are generally caused by one, or a combination of, the following:

  • Structural abnormalities of the foot e.g. flat feet, lesser-toe deformities and bunions
  • Reduction of fatty padding beneath the skin
  • Areas of high pressure over bony prominences such as toes and joints
  • Areas of high pressure from unsuitable footwear (too short, narrow or shallow)
  • Areas of high pressure as a result of abnormal gait

Why have your Corns and Calluses treated at Perfect Skin Solutions?

Our Podiatrist, Nishal Patel, has over 20 years clinical experience. Patients commonly leave reviews saying how gentle and skilled her hands are; leaving them not only feeling they have never had a better result elsewhere, but also that it was their most comfortable treatment ever. She takes into consideration that one treatment model may not be suitable for everyone; tailoring a treatment plan that is right for you. Nishal is also one of only a handful of podiatrists in the UK offering hyaluronic acid (fillers) treatment. This helps to replace the displaced padding under the skin which in turn reduces the pain and the size of the lesions. Whatever your needs, Perfect Skin Solutions will take the best care of you.

FAQ

For most, the treatment is quite painless, as the skin which is removed has no nerve attachments (just like cutting hair and nails). In cases where a corn/callus has been left untreated too long the underlying tissue may have become bruised or broken down. At this point it is essential that treatment is carried out to prevent further breakdown and leading to ulceration.

The hyaluronic treatment is carried out under local anaesthetic and there is little recovery time post-procedure.

Number of treatments vary depending on the cause of the lesions and the agreed treatment plan. 1-2 times yearly to every 6-8 weeks.
