Plantar callus (" corn seed ", Clavus Durus) is a very unpleasant and painful disease caused by dead skin cells hardening and thickening in an area of the foot.

Calluses usually appear on the soles of the feet, heels and/or the inside of the big toe. Some calluses have a deep core called nucleation.

Several treatment options are available, such as electrosurgery, cryosurgery, chemical agents (salicylic acid) and scalpel excision. Of the treatment options available, none are uniformly effective, and most are associated with different limitations and side effects, such as necrotic debris.

What can I expect during laser treatment?

Laser treatment for Clavus Durus is painless and usually takes less than 10 minutes per session. Move the laser slowly over the entire treatment area until you are finished. PIOON medical diode laser penetrates deep enough to reach the muscles, ligaments and tendons in the feet and ankles without damaging tissue like other treatments. When your cells absorb light energy, they use it to initiate cell renewal and healing. This reduces pain and inflammation and can also trigger your immune system to fight fungal infections.
