DermalMedix, found online at DermalMedix.com, is a company that has created a new foot care product called FootMedix, which promises to help people heal painful, cracked, and calloused feet from the comfort of your home.
How Does It Work?
DermalMedix was created by Dr. David Watts, a doctor and an Army Major who speaks each year to the United Nations regarding medical safety and ethics.
According to their website, many skincare formulas rely on low quality ingredients that may actually damage and weaken your skin over time, taking any short term improvements and making the situation worse.
FootMedix, on the other hand, works by stimulating and fortifying new skin growth, promoting increased circulation, eliminating pain, and giving you stronger, smoother skin. And it doesn’t just heal dry skin, but a variety of other problems as well, including numbness, corns, foot fissures, and fungus.
Their website says that FootMedix should be applied to clean, dry feet, beginning with a small amount that is massaged directly onto dry, damaged skin. They recommend applying this product twice a day, and that a single tube will generally last about a month. Because every customer’s body is different, the website says it is difficult to determine when you see results, but many customers begin to see improvement after the first use.
Ingredients and Side Effects
Though this website points to human epidermal growth factor (hEGF) as their primary ingredient, they actually do provide their customers with a full list of product ingredients on their product page, so customers with allergies or other known side effects to particular ingredients will be able to look through this ingredient list to see what this product contains.
Though this company does reference “choosing your package” when it comes time to purchase this product, it appears that the only real option for purchase from their website at this time is a single tube of FootMedix for $120.00, with free shipping.
DermalMedix offers their customers a 90 Day Money Back Guarantee on all products purchased from their website. This 90 day period begins on the day the product is shipped from their company; not the day it is delivered to your home. All returns must be shipped with a trackable number, and customers must contact their Customer Service team for specific return instructions before shipping their product back.
Unfortunately this website does not provide any information whatsoever regarding whether or not this product can be opened and used and still be eligible for return, or if customers are only able to ship back unopened products. Concerned customers will want to contact their Customer Service team about this issue before ordering this product, or at least before opening it.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who would like to contact Customer Service with any questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by phone at 800-425-0243, by email at [email protected], or by submitting them directly to their website through their Contact Us link.
This company does appear to get positive reviews from their customers, however many customers did point out that the price of this product is very high considering that it doesn’t actually “cure” cracked heels and feet. The product needs to be used on a regular basis to ensure the cracks don’t come back, which makes this product even more expensive than it would already be for many customers who were hoping they would only need a single tube.
Competitors and Alternatives?
There are actually many different products available both online and at your local drugstore which promise to help people with painfully dry, cracked feet, so customers looking for other options will have a variety of choices which better meet their needs or their budget.

12 ‘DermalMedix’ Reviews
I am a 75 year old male and not concerned with wrinkles. I have had seborrhea dermatitis, which has red patches appear on my forehead. I have tried other Medix products including FootMedix but SculptMedix works for me.
I'm uncertain about the value of this product. I agree that you immediately feel the skin tightening when applied. Sometimes when I've perhaps applied too much product it is difficult to apply a moisturizer over top. Also, when applying a moisturizer the tightness softens up so I'm confused as how to use this product with other facial products. I like using a Vitamin C serum underneath as well and don't know if this is affecting the Sculpt Medix. I have purchased other Dr. Watt's products and value this company. I hope to see better results relative to minimizing fine lines around the eye and mouth. Thank you for this opportunity to review. I'd greatly appreciate your advice on these issues.
After about two weeks of faithfully dabbing, not rubbing in SculptMedix I noticed my skin was smoother. I was pleased to notice after a month that some of my dark spots had even started to fade. Overall, I couldn't be happier, well, unless my skin recovered quicker. Unfortunately, my skin is very sensitive so it was a relief not to have any adverse reactions!
It cleared up the cracked skin between my toes, and the itching that was almost as bad a chicken pox. The only thing that is still left is athlete's foot in both of my big toes that will not go away. It hasn't gotten any worse, just not any better. I'm going to a new practitioner in a couple of days to see what systemic measures I can take to finish the job. Thanks for keeping most of it at bay!
I have tried them all. Wore socks to bed. Used sanders. Used pumice. The only thing that ever truly worked is Foot Medix. I can even use it before yoga. Non greasy. Not perfumed. Best stuff ever
I been using this cream for almost a month, my feet are very dry and hard on the bottom, since I using it, I can see the difference. I applying twice a day and a very happy with the results.
I have been using FootMedix for almost a year and have been very pleased with the results. It is the first product ever that actually eliminated the dry and flaky skin from my feet longer than for just a few hours. Pleased with FootMedix, I order a six-tube package to take advantage of a much better price than ordering it one-tube at a time. However, I'm beginning to see a difference in the product's performance in that it doesn't seem to have the lasting results previously experienced. I would like to know if there has been a change of formula. In my previous single-tube orders the product seemed to be more of a non-greasy lotion consistency as opposed to the thicker and less fluid formula that I have now. I will say, to this point, I am still a fan of the product.
I have an autoimmune disease that makes my feet very dry, thickens the skin and peel almost constantly. I took a chance on FootMedix because I’ve tried nearly everything else. It has softened the skin and even helped my heels. It has helped when nothing else has. I watch for specials because it is quite pricey. Take a chance and try it. I’m very glad I did.
