Elim MediHeel is a 9-step pedicure system with products working in synergy to achieve optimal results. The system incorporates Callus Tonic, a keratolytic alkaline solution that breaks up protein bonds in the stratum corneum, making it easy to scrape away callused skin within 10 minutes of application. pH Neutralizer resets the pH balance after callus removal and ensures long-lasting improvements in the appearance of skin. The combination of these two products is the cornerstone of the Elim MediHeel system.
