Industry Bulletin 8/1/2011 - Callus Removal
The Board of Barbering and Cosmetology (Board) would like to remind licensees that at no time does your Board license allow you to remove a callus. This includes when a client asks you to perform the service. The removal of a callus is a medical procedure and thereby strictly prohibited by any Board licensee.
As a licensee, you may smooth a callus; however, the Board does not allow the use of a callus shaver/razor or rasp. Licensees may smooth a callus through the use of a liquid callus smoothing product. Licensees should remember that when using products, you should always follow the manufacturer's directions.
Again, as a licensee of the Board you can SMOOTH but not REMOVE a callus.
