Care and treatmentHard skin on feet

We remove hard skin on the soles (hyperkeratosis) – with a scalpel we remove hard areas of skin on the foot and, if necessary, we use means for additional softening, if the skin is extremely hard.

These thickest layers of cells occur most often on the heel, under the toes, as well as on other parts of the feet.

What is
hard skin?

The hard skin on the soles are horny cells of dead skin on the epidermis of the skin of the soles. Since these are dead cells, hard skin needs to be removed.

How do hard
skin develop?

Soles are very exposed parts of the body and carry all of our weight, so potentially more hard skin problems are caused by overweight people, and also the elderly.

From our practice How does hard skin get on the soles and why does it appear?

This phenomenon can be due to dry skin, due to excessive strain on the feet, overweight, inappropriate and too tight footwear and, last but not least, hereditary effects, as hard skin on the soles can also have others who do not have these problems. It can occur more often in women who wear nylon stockings.

How can we help ourselves?

We wear good footwear that should not be too tight, airless and made of natural, airy materials. Footwear must adapt to our foot. We do not tear, tear or peel hard skin. In addition to visiting a professional medical pedicure center such as the Pedimed Centre, we can also help ourselves by soaking our feet, softening hard skin, and nourishing the skin with moisturizing care and moisturizing creams.
Diabetics in particular need to take care of their feet. Wear suitable socks, wear comfortable shoes and keep your feet from getting too wet.
