Taking care of one’s feet has become increasingly important for many, just like it has for me. I started using my callus remover about six months ago, and I’m very happy I did so. I imagine, however, that there are many out there insecure on how to use their electric callus remover.
I have been there myself. Just after I bought it and tried it out on my feet, I started thinking “I can’t be doing it right,” and I hadn’t. Since I now know how to do so, I’ve decided to write a guide on how to use an electric callus remover in a bid to leaving you more informed than you are right now.
There are several ways to use a callus remover, and this guide will only explain what way worked best for me. When you’re done reading this article you may try it out and change things you don’t particularly agree with.
The things you will need for this tutorial are:
- A callus remover (The most obvious point)
- Foot cream (or normal moisturizing cream)
- Electricity (This one is also fairly obvious)
There is no specific need for foot cream, but I’ve noticed that eases the process and relieves pain the few times I’ve experienced it. Using the callus remover doesn’t usually hurt, but there have been instances where I’ve become sore after use.
1 – Set up your Callus Remover
In order to understand how to use an electric callus remover, I would assume that you already have your device so let’s get right down to it. The first thing to do is to put the device together. Depending on what kind of device it is, battery-driven or electric cord, you’ll have to do two different things.
If it’s battery-driven, start charging the device with the charging cord or put in a fresh pair of batteries. If it’s driven by an electric cord, all you have to do is plug it and turn it on. These devices usually don’t have an on and off light, but if it does you can check it to see if it works.

2 – Lay a towel under your feet
Dead skin is going to fall off your feet when you start using the device, so make sure to put something under it before you begin. This is only to make the cleaning process afterward easier.
3 – Start the device
You’re all set. Start the device and slowly move it across the surface with callus. Be careful the first time, figure out how much pressure your skin can manage. If you get a burning sensation, you know the pressure is too high.
Use the device in 2 – 3-second intervals until you see the result. It’s important to remember that you might now see results after the first time, but it will become better. And that’s precisely how to use an electric callus remover.

4 – Cream
If it hurts after use, you can put on some foot or moisturizing cream. If it doesn’t hurt, you can do it anyway.
