Question:
I have read on other sites that the Strasser approach trims into "live" sole. This sounds a bit scary. What does this mean?

Answer:
All sole horn is cornified epidermal cells similar to your nail tip or hair. It has no vascular structure or nerves. In simple terms it is dead. It can be painlessly trimmed away just as you would trim your nails or cut your hair.

Trimming past the sole horn, into solar corium and papillae, which of course is painful, is not part of The Strasser MethodTM.
