My husband has atrocious calluses on his heels with have deep cracks. This can be dangerous if the cracks bleed. I have given him files and various pumice stones which did not work. I was reticent to buy anything that worked on batteries, as I did not think it would provide enough power. Turns out I was correct. This device, however, is electric and is very powerful. My husband's feet are almost back to normal after only two sessions of use! I highly recommend this over any flimsy, cheap battery-operated device. Don't waste your money on something else that won't work or that is dangerous (callus shaver, cringe). This is a professional-grade product and the discs have enough coarseness to work efficiently, unlike others I have seen. Thank you Tip2Toe!
Update, January 6, 2014 -
We have had this product for over a year and it is still going strong! My husband gives it a rigorous workout every few weeks and we haven't had any issues with it. It is an excellent product and you won't be sorry you purchased it.

One of the unfortunate problems associated with diabetes is the build up of calluses , dry cracked heels and thick dry skin on the bottom of the feet.

More than just unsightly if left un treated walking becomes difficult and more serious repercussions can arise from not addressing the problem, good foot care for diabetics is essential.

Over the past few years I've tried scrapers, files and blades - along with a myriad of creams and products both over the counter and prescription. They have all had some degree of benefit however I've found the buffers , scrapers and the like cumbersome to use and extremely time consuming. When searching for a better solution I came across this product and decided to give it a go and hoped for the best.

The Luxor Pro Tip 2Toe is an excellent product. I couldn't believe how well it performs and how quickly it delivers exceptional results.

The unit itself is designed for professional use and it's quite powerful - absolutely nothing I have used in the past has worked so beautifully. The unit looks a bit like a small portable hair drier, has an 8 foot swivel cord which is nice to have, a variable speed adjustment, on/off switch and comes with 6 fine disks and 6 coarse disks.

Please note, the fine disks are only for healthy smooth skin, the coarse disks are for tough skin, calluses and related problems. The unit has a built in safety precaution and will stop if you press too hard.

Benefits:

* Professional Quality - Excellent Build Quality

* Comes With Everything You Need

* Ready To Use Right Out Of The Box

* Disks Are easy To Replace Both On Amazon And Direct From Manufacturer

* 120/220 Volt Grounded Plug

* Quiet

* Extremely Effective

* 3 Year Warrantee

Tips For Best Results:

* Use After Shower Or Bath

* Make Sure Feet Are Dry But Still Softened By Water

* Go Slow - Take Your Time

* Keep The Disk Moving Around The Area Being Treated

* Do Not Press Down Let The Machine Do The Work

* Follow Treatment With A Good Moisturizer

The bottoms of my feet look they did thirty years ago - and now walking is much more comfortable and virtually pain free. Regardless of the cause of your calluses or dry and or cracked skin - used correctly this system will restore damaged skin to healthy, smooth and callous free and you'll see dramatic results right after the first use.

Simply an outstanding product that does exactly what it promises - Highly recommended.

Like everyone else has said, this looks and sounds like a small hairdryer but functions similarly to a Dremmel high speed rotary tool. Now, I have used a Dremmel before and wasn't particularly bothered when the very high speed rotation over-heated the item I was working on. But when the item is your foot, you will quickly take notice and alter your technique. There's a learning curve but it is short.

In my case I kept the speed at around 30 to 40 percent of its max. That's easy to eyeball on the speed dial. Then I adopted a technique of touching a spot and immediately lifting it from that spot. Then touching another spot. This sounds slow, but it's the high rotation that quickly does the work here, not pressure or sustained contact. As with a Dremmel, pressure will stop the rotation and even slightly sustained contact will result in too much heat to the area.

I can't describe to you how bad my heels were and I am certain you couldn't find any that were worse. They looked like something out of a horror film! I was embarrassed to go for a pedicure. My feet were simply too bad. So, on my own, I tried everything to get rid of the callouses and cracks. I've used all the manual sanders and graters (lots of work for minimal and short lived results). I've butchered my feet with a cutting blade until my husband insisted I get rid of it. I also tried the "Be Natural Callus Eliminator" which people rave about here with absolutely NO result from that product.

After reading the short list of instructions and precautions, I loaded the Tip 2 Toe with the course disc. Obviously! I worked on one foot for 30 minutes. By that time it was smooth to the touch. I could still see tracks where the very deep cracks had been. I would describe the skin as tough but smooth. Shiny actually. Like a polished piece of wood, lol. In my case I believe there is something about my gait which produces excess force on the heels, resulting in thick callouses which eventually crack if unattended to. I don't expect that to change, so callous maintenance will be an ongoing battle.

The results of using the Tip 2 Toe are similar to the manual sanders, but I'd say more thorough and requiring far less effort, and less strain on my back. The first pass took 30 minutes per foot in my extreme case. With regular use I expect a quick touch-up will suffice. Another difference is the dust. With the manual sanders the dust is heavy enough to fall to the floor. I always work over a towel and then throw it in the laundry. However the dust generated by the Tip 2 Toe is very fine and floats around in the air. My lungs are sensitive and I felt them being affected. I would suggest wearing a mask or going outside which the instructions tell you not to do. I'm not sure why they say that. My environment was dry and my outlet was grounded. I felt safe using it outside and it resolved the dust problem for me.

I'm glad I took a chance with this product. My feet are smooth enough after one use that I would feel comfortable going for a pedicure, mostly because I would like someone to paint my nails for me. I plan to maintain my callouses myself.

Regarding the sanding discs, it comes with 6 fine and 6 course. After one hour of use, the course disc still seems usable although it isn't as scratchy as an unused disc. I don't feel the cost of discs will be prohibitive in the long run.

A couple years ago I developed eczema on my hands. The continuous cycle of itchy blisters, scratching, peeling, and eventual healing had caused the skin to become hard and rough. I found that applying unscented! petroleum jelly at night, covered with white cotton gloves, restored their natural softness. I pull the gloves off after a couple hours. I suspect that I could get a similar softening effect on my feet if I were willing to use the petroleum jelly with some socks on my feet. Haven't tried that yet, but now that the thick dead skin is gone, maybe I will.

I would rather be able to walk on beach sand every day to keep my feet soft but that's not going to happen, so I was in search of a product that would do the job. Like a few other reviewers I was tired of buying product after product that were time consuming but offered decent results, so I thought I might as well go for this. It sure gets the job done! It doesn't come with a lot of directions, and honestly I could hardly feel a difference between the finer and coarser sanding pads but it was quick and it was powerful. I am pleased with it. Replacement sanding pads are a bit pricey but can be ordered on Amazon.

It came with a callus softening liquid product that after reading the directions I thought it might not be something I would want to use, so I have not tried it.

A word of caution: This tool rotates very quickly, slower than a dremel tool but still very fast. You have to find your "touch" when using this. I have found that you have to pay attention to what you are doing or it will take the callus right down to skin in the blink of an eye.

My salon uses these and how I found out about them. A lot better then shaving calluses. This really helps to keep my calluses stay at bay without encouraging any cracks. Wish the disposable disks were cheaper, but now at least you can order them!

I didn't want to keep spending $15 here and there to experiment with an inadequate heel and callous remover, so I dove in and bought this one that does not use batteries (is electric). It is definitely worth the money and gets the job done. It is powerful beyond anything that a battery-operated one can provide, but at the same time if you press down too hard, it does not rotate, which is probably good, so that it doesn't damage your softer skin. It is quick and effective. Replacements are very easy to order online here. (I still prefer the razor on my heels, but I know you're not supposed to use it for health reasons).

This product looks and sounds like a mini hair dryer. It works quite well on dry, cracked and calloused feet. Be careful though. This product will take you down to healthy sensitive skin very quickly. I would suggest using a slower setting until you are used to it. Good purchase because even though it was costly, think of how much just two pedicures cost at a salon. This pays for itself in two visits...that's my justification.

I'm not sure what kind of calluses the people writing 5-start reviews of this have, but for my feet this device is far too powerful and hard to control at the lowest setting with the least abrasive disk. I wouldn't have anyone use this on me, and using this on yourself is extremely difficult. As long as you never, even for an instant, touch something that's not a callus, this thing "works" (so would a belt sander). But with the wide circular disks and the torque pulling you off center, it's impossible to control. As a result of the extreme care necessary when using this device, I can't get the calluses down to the level I want them, and I can't use it on one "spot" callus on my heel at all.

From reading other reviews, I knew this should be a powerful but effective callus remover. I also knew some people had burned or bloody areas of skin from using it. I was being extremely light-handed with the remover with the lighter grid disk and the unit on lowest power. I did not hold the remover in one place but lightly brushed it over areas. I burned several callused spots almost instantly and drew blood in one spot. I can't imagine what higher speeds and coarser grits would have done. Unit has been returned. I advise not purchasing this tool but if you do, be very, very careful in its use.
