$325 Foot Facial Removes Calluses And Dead Skin | Beauty Explorers

Emily Christian: Hey, everyone! Today I’m headed to the Institute Beauté in New York City to get a foot facial. Institute Beauté is the headquarters of podiatric surgeon Dr. Suzanne Levine. In addition to the typical services offered by foot doctors, she offers her clients
aesthetic treatments, including a foot facial,
which costs between $325 and $375. For that price tag, what are the real benefits of this foot treatment? Why not just get a pedicure? Suzanne Levine: Institute
Beauté’s mission is to really treat the foot the way you do the face. I think that the key
to longevity is walking and having feet that are healthy and beautiful at the same time. Emily: Well, it’s so nice to meet you. I am so excited to be here, and I think that this is going to be a really important moment for me. I guess I didn’t really think too much about my feet before now, because I’m looking at them and they are horrifying. Levine: So tell me, first of all, where are you having pain? Emily: So, I have all kinds of foot pain. I have really high arches, so I struggle wearing a lot of shoes and I get really awful foot cramps. Levine: You do have very high arches. This is called a cavus foot. This, by the way, is hereditary. So if you do a genetic
testing, you will see that you may have some aristocratic blood. These are actually people
Emily: Wow. that have been carried around. You are a likely candidate for callus, which you do have at the back of the heel. Now, some of the issues you face are not just foot cramps but knee problems, hip
problems, and back problems. Emily: Levine got to work
on my very neglected feet. The treatment started with an ultrasound to identify where I might
be losing cushioning. Levine: I would not jog, OK? Because I can assure you,
five to 10 years from now, you will actually break
down all of that cushioning. Emily: Wow. Levine: So I would
definitely find another sport for these feet. Emily: An excuse not to run. Like I needed another one of those. Levine took her green tea
cleanser to my toenails and stepped out to let her
medical assistant take over. Her assistant gave me a special massage meant to exfoliate the
foot and help with cramps. Levine: The interesting part of pedicures: They never massage correctly. They’ll massage in any direction. The greatest amount of pressure has to always be applied toward the heel. In fact, what they’re
doing is a disservice to anybody that has
swelling in their feet. The biggest mistake I see in nail salons is just no sterility. There’s instruments used
from one person to the next, transmitting all kinds
of bacterial infections. People think by putting
nail polish on their nails they’re taking care of their
feet, or massaging their feet. It’s not enough. Emily: Next she applied
a green tea mint mask to help heal any fissures on my foot. I feel so good. After the mask was taken off, Levine came back to
finally tackle my calluses. Levine: What I’m gonna
do right now is we took a sterile blade, and we’re
actually diminishing. Look how easy the callus
formation comes off. You could never, ever do this prior to using all of those products. Emily: My first reaction
seeing that tiny knife was kind of fear, but
you can’t feel anything. The process ended with Dermalinfusion. It further exfoliated my feet while infusing vitamins and moisture back into the skin. Whoa! That’s a whole new foot! Oh, my gosh, my heel looks smaller. Am I imagining it? It looks like a fresh little baby foot. Levine: The biggest problem is that people don’t take care of their feet. They’re so important. They last a lifetime. That’s your locomotion;
that’s your ability to get around from point A to point B. Love your feet. Emily: Before I saw my
feet through Levine’s eyes, I never gave them much thought. But once I realized the
problems I was headed towards, I was shocked. A pedicure in any salon will not get you a doctor’s
consultation and advice. And for anyone with any
level of foot concerns, that’s what makes this
foot treatment so valuable. Nearly a month later, my feet
are still feeling their best. Levine recommends a foot
facial once a month, but I think the results
will last much longer. My gosh, I love it.

  1. Now I don’t know about New York but in Maryland you cant use a surgical blade to scrape off ANYTHING the Cosmetology Board would have a field day you can get the same result by soaking your feet in water with lemon juice epsom salt or alcohol scrub with pumi stone

  2. As some who went to beauty school to be a nail tech. All the products are for show. You only need a callus softener and a Mr. Pumice bar. You can get both as Sally's beauty supply. To keep your feet soft use a foot cream that has the ingredient potassium hydroxide. I recommend Gold bonds. I've just saved you $370.

  3. Some of these women commenting need a foot facial. Back of their feet look like Sea Barnacles ( Google it). Feet so hard that can run barefooted through nails and hot coal without any damages. Old Alligator feet looking Mofos.

  4. Bruh finally a video that showed true before and after shots. Omg i might get this treatment when i visit that city in a few months

  5. For that price you can get a brand new Apple Watch that you can use for years…… and this foot treatment is recommended for once a month?! It's like buying a new Apple Watch every month lol…. just throwing away money ehh LOL

  6. "you could never ever do this prior to using all of those products" Literally i do that to my feet like every month with no products…

  7. You can do all this at home. Just make sure you soak your feet and remove the callous with a pumice stone, afterward put on the food cream. Just invest on a very good foot cream. Remember to moisturized your feet daily right after shower. If you walk or stand a lot in a day, remember to treat your feet with a foot bath. Then remove the callous. Moisture afterwards. Foot care is like hand care. You need to put on hand cream everyday. Same as your foot.

  8. Add far infrared lamps alternated with ice sticks in hand held press tubes with ice extrusion rubbed in circular motions across whole foot and then light vacuum cupping with silicone cups. Finish with aloe vera gel and fine gold plated wire percussion stick tapped firmly across the sole.

  9. Just throw some baking soda in some warm water and soak your feet. The dead skin will come right off and it’s like cheap af

  10. You should be ashamed to let your feet get like that and you got to pay Mira to go to
    Work on them feet. You lucky she didn’t use a sander😂😂😂😂😂

  11. Lol. $325 for a foot "facial". How extraordinary pretentious…..However that aside, it looked extremely relaxing and enjoyable.

  12. Damn, $325 – $375 dollars for a foot facial! I rather go to my local CVS or Walgreens, buy me $20 dollars worth of a foot peeler kit and do my own foot care!

  13. I've heard the same thing from three oldsters who are 90+:

    'Whatever you do, never stop moving [walking] and take care of your legs; they're your life's car.'

  14. Only an American moron could come up with a sentence like a “foot facial”, straight out of the Trump school of verbal vomit.

  15. This is silly. Go to Walmart, buy the $2-5 foot scrubber, scrub while feet are wet. Bam! smooth feet. Send money you saved my way.

  16. I too have difficulties with my feet due to my super-high arches …I feel so understood! And I am grateful that my aversion to jogging running is now validated and backed up by science, haha!

  17. Wtf even is "foot facial" like is it a feet spa or facial spa? You know there is a name for it called pedicure and it usually costs about 10-20€… Like honestly it looks less fancy but all the masks and peelings and special tools do nothing

  18. I understand there definitely some places that you wouldn't want to get pedicures at.. I've had a few really horrifying experiences where the person cut my foot and left me with days of footpain.. also I don't recommend blades as they can easily cut the skin? But of course that's the risk and I've also had some really good pedicures that left me feeling really good ☺👍 if depending on the place and how experience the tech is?
