A revolutionary treatment for corns and callus.

Curacorn®, sterile gel injections for the skin on your feet.

Curacorn®️ uses the natural substance Hyaluronic Acid, the same substance that is injected regularly into joints. Curacorn®️ has been developed using a highly vicous formulation of the product which is proven not to disperse under the pressure of walking.

It enables us to form a ‘cushion’ underneath a lesion to decrease the production of callus and corns and ultimately relieve the pain associated with them. Its effects can last up to 18 months.

How does it work?

Hyaluronic acid is found in many tissues of the body, such as epidermis, dermis and cartilage. It is an important component of articular cartilage as it responsible for its resilience (resistance to compression) where it is present as a coat around each cell. It is also a major component of epidermis and dermis, where it is involved in tissue protection, resistance and repair. When the skin is exposed to excessive UVB rays, smoke, pollution and in the natural ageing process, the cells in the skin stops producing as much hyaluronan and, specially with the ageing, it increase the rate of its degradation. Hyaluronic acid has been used in the medical field in other to attempts to treat osteoarthritis of the knee via injecting it into the joint. It was also approved for use in eye surgery (such as corneal transplantation, cataract surgery, glaucoma surgery, and surgery to repair retinal detachment). Therefore, we can assume that hyaluronic acid is well suited to biomedical applications on the cartilage, derma and epidermis with optimal results, biocompatible material, fast and comfortable procedure, safe and non permanent effect.

The Hyaluronic Acid we use to inject the foot has the highest viscosity of hydronic acid products, which has been proven to reduce pressure from painful lesions. Once introduced into the body, it provokes the formation of collagen and draws fluid to the area, creating a natural cushion.

The Curacorn® product stays in the same area to which it is injected and provides a natural cushion between the skin and the joint lasting up to 18months before the body will naturally dissolve the product.

Who can benefit and what to expect

Patients who can benefit from a treatment like this include:

  • Those with painful chronic corns on high weight-bearing areas or in-between the toes
  • Patients with a thinning of the natural fatty padding in the ball of the foot exposing the joints to high pressure on walking
  • Those with biomechanical changes within the foot leading to high pressure areas (e.g. bunions and retracted toes)

Generally, Curacorn® treatment would require a set of three appointments – during an initial routine foot care appointment  your Podiatrist may offer this as a treatment option.

During your 1st appointment, we will conduct an assessment to ensure this treatment is suitable for you. We will discuss the aftercare necessary post-injection. Your podiatrist will prepare the affected area with debridement.

On your second appointment, your Podiatrist will administer a local anaesthetic to numb the area to be treated. The filler will then be injected into the area or areas.

During your third appointment, we will assess the top filler. You should have started to feel the benefit at this stage.

  • It can reduce the need for medicated pain relief

  • It can be an alternative for those considering surgery

  • It can offer long-term pain relief and the benefit of increased mobility, mental health and well-being

  • Reduced Podiatry appointments for painful corns

Case Study:

We love a success story..

Here we have our lovely female patient, age 62, who had a long-standing painful corn between her toes.

After receiving Curacorn®️ treatment, the corn never came back.

The End!

Steph was very provisional and delt with my problem, she boots and t training shoes sorted out with an outstanding result. I definitely will be going back .
I chose this practice due to the reviews and I honestly couldn’t have made a better decision. I would have no hesitation recommending SO Podiatry to anyone! I had a number of verrucas for over 5 years or so and had tried many ways to treat them over the years. After just 3 swift treatments at SO Podiatry, they’re gone completely. I wish I had of known about this treatment sooner, because now I wouldn’t chose any other treatment or practice. Fantastic service and friendly, professional staff. Thank you Stephanie!

I used to suffer with incredible knee pain, it was a stabbing sensation that would stop me taking another step. It could be very painful, even at night so I took painkillers every morning and evening for it. Not any more. I just want to say thank you so much as can honestly say I haven’t had any pain in my knee since having MLS Laser treatment at SO Podiatry. I have since stopped taking all painkillers and I am using both legs as evenly as each other, it really is just amazing. At one point I thought I would need a knee replacement and now I’ve even thought about booking a cycling holiday.

I have seen Steph over the last nine months with a variety of foot ailments and found her to be very professional and approachable. However, most importantly, she has managed to cure my various problems – ingrowing toe nail, verrucae, biomechanics and corn under nail! I have no hesitation in recommending her.


My 11-year-old daughter had multiple warts on her hands and multiple verruca on her feet. She was embarrassed and had low confidence due to these embarrassing skin lesions. We had tried helping her with over-the-counter remedies and nothing made a difference. We had read about swift microwave therapy and its success rate, so we booked an appointment to speak with Steph at SO Podiatry to see if this treatment would be successful. Swift microwave therapy was the treatment of choice and after two sessions the Veruca and warts have totally gone. Our daughter is now back to her cheerleading and rock climbing activities which she loves, and we’re pleased to say she is now a much happier and more confident girl.

Six months ago I visited So Podiatry and Steph was absolutely amazing in assessing my stance, posture, walking and running gait and then arranging for my custom orthotic insoles to be made by a leading UK supplier. She was informative, knowledgeable and communicative throughout, and I felt that the service was excellent value for money. The orthotics are amazingly comfortable and it took no time at all to get used to wearing them. I recently ran my first marathon, Steph’s advice, treatment and the custom made orthotics made all the difference.

Knowing how Stephanie had helped a friend to be able to continue her professional dancing career, I knew I was seeing the right person for my injury. My expectations were more than satisfied in just three weeks and I have been able to walk pain-free after two sessions, the third visit just a check up. The healing and comfort level in my foot continues. Initially fearing I might be virtually house-bound and hobbling to get anywhere, I am able to forget any injury and lead my usual busy life with great joy … and I mean it!! I think everyone should see you Steph!

Mrs A Suganami

I can certainly rate Stephanie. My painful verrucae have totally gone, It is such a relief to be able to be on my feet without any pain after all these years.

A A, Worcester

After two treatments by Stephanie it was gone! No sign of the verruca on my heel at all. Everybody asks does it hurt. Yes, it does for a very short time. Pay affects people in different ways, for me it was so worthwhile that if I had another verrucae, I would be straight in to see Stephanie. The Swift microwave therapy causes a very short burst of pain, which makes one jump, but is over in seconds. It is no worse than needling. As the treatment progresses the discomfort level decreases to the point where at the end, I could hardly feel it. It really is no big deal ad I would recommend SO Podiatry and the Swift microwave treatment to anyone.


My 13yr old son first saw Stephanie for a biomechanics appointment. He had frequent calf strains/pulls, and had been injured for 8 weeks. As well as prescribing some insoles, Stephanie recommended specific strengthening exercises. He is now back to playing football 4 times a week, stronger than ever!

Mrs N Parkin

I found the service I got from Stephanie of SO Podiatry was excellent. She was very professional, knowledgeable and seemed to genuinely care about getting a good outcome. I would have no hesitation in recommending her and using her again.

S Gray, Worcester

I’ve been coming to Steph for over a year now for toenail reconstruction and I can’t thank her enough for giving me my confidence back. My toenails have been damaged for years and I’ve always hidden my feet and felt self conscious about them but she’s made it possible for me to have them on show again and I’m so happy.
