Calluses: Removing calluses can be performed by simple debrided via a sterile scalpel and burr. Also using chemical debrider agents such as urea can be a painless way of removing your calluses.

Gradually: You may try try emollients at night to soften the calluses. You could also use over the counter scrappers to gradually grind the calluses away. Avoid overdoing the grinding, it may take months to gradually wear away the calluses.
