Where to get a callus removed: Your options and what you should know

You surely know this: Calluses can be uncomfortable and can affect both the appearance of your feet and your well-being. But where can you get calluses removed and what are the best methods and places for it? In this blog post, we will introduce you to various options to get your feet soft and well-groomed again.

The Foot Care Practice (Podiatrist)

Podiatrists are medically trained foot care specialists who are well-versed in the anatomy and care of feet. A visit to a podiatrist is especially advisable if you suffer from severe callus formation or other foot problems.


  • Professional and individualized advice
  • Treatment for specific foot issues (e.g., diabetes)
  • High hygiene standards

Costs: Prices vary and generally range between 30 and 60 euros per session.

Cosmetic Foot Care

Cosmetic foot care providers also offer callus removal, but without a medical background. These treatments focus more on the aesthetic appearance of the feet.


  • Pleasant and relaxing atmosphere
  • Often cheaper than medical foot care
  • Can be combined with other care treatments (e.g., pedicure)

Costs: Prices vary widely, but you can expect to pay around 20 to 50 euros.

Wellness and Spa Facilities

Wellness and spa facilities also offer foot care and callus removal treatments. This option is particularly suitable if you want to treat yourself to a day of relaxation.


  • Relaxing atmosphere
  • Can be combined with other wellness treatments (e.g., massages)

Costs: Prices can vary significantly, but generally range between 40 and 80 euros for a single treatment.

Home Treatment

Of course, you have the option to remove calluses at home. However, before you reach for pumice stones, rasps, or files, note that these methods can be not only dangerous but also stimulate new callus formation. A better alternative is to rely on products like the Hand and Foot Care Box from Lopalmed.

Pharmacies and Drugstores

Some pharmacies and drugstores also offer professional foot care, often at a moderate price. This can be a good alternative if you want professional help but don't have a podiatrist available nearby.


  • Professional advice
  • Moderate costs
  • Usually no long waiting times

Costs: Prices usually range between 20 and 40 euros.


There are many ways to get calluses removed: from professional podiatrists to cosmetic foot care to home treatment. Your choice depends on your personal needs, your budget, and the availability of services near you. Regardless of which method you choose, regular care is the key to healthy and beautiful feet.
