Dermal Fillers for Feet In Kennington
Kennington Chiropody Surgery, we offer dermal fillers for feet. Dermal fillers are mainly comprised of a naturally occurring sugar in the body, called Hyaluronic Acid, also known as HA. HA is commonly present within our body from our skin to our eyes and joints. HA has many functions, one of which is to plump an area. Once introduced into the body, it rapidly attracts the spare water to plump up the area. For the feet, dermal fillers can be used to provide cushioning for the balls of the feet and to treat corns / callous. For more information, call Kennington Chiropody Surgery on 020 7735 4303. Relieve The Pain From High Heels
High heeled shoes aren t going out of fashion any time soon, and as the heel height increases, the balls of our feet take more load causing an aching or burning pain. This condition is referred to as stiletto -tarsalgia and can be solved by using dermal fillers. HA is injected into the ball of the foot in precise areas to provide cushioning when wearing high heeled shoes. The treatment itself is painless as a local anaesthetic is given beforehand.
As this is a medical procedure for the foot, you will only find this treatment carried out by specialist podiatrists like our professionals at Kennington Chiropody Surgery. Once injected into the ball of the feet, the fillers will last approximately 6 -12 months. The procedure itself takes between 1 1 hours. People who wear heeled shoes for occupational reasons could find a complete lifestyle change with this procedure.
Fillers may may be used for anybody who suffers with the symptoms from wearing high heeled shoes.
Fillers For Loss Of Fatty Padding & Corns
A person who has lost the fatty padding on the balls of their feet due to repetitive trauma will also benefit greatly from this procedure. Dermal fillers can also be used to treat a corn. Corns are hard skin which develops over the likes of toes and the balls of the feet due to excess pressure. This pressure can be caused by the way an individual walks or improper shoes, trauma or loss of the fatty padding that protects the balls of the feet.
Dermal fillers can be injected underneath the corn to take the pain away and provide padding to prevent the corn from returning. The procedure can vary between 30 minutes to 1 hour. Again, the treatment will last for approximately 6 -12 months. A local anaesthetic is again given to make sure that this treatment is painless, also the side effects are much the same as the cushions for feet, and again are extremely rare. As with dermal fillers used for facial aesthetics to maintain the desired effect, top-up treatments are advised.
There are minimal side effects with the procedure. Some side effects include pain and swelling. This may be felt within 48 hours and some patients may experience uncomfortable feeling which can last 30 days or more. Although these are extremely rare, as with any minor surgical procedure involving a local anaesthetic, potential side effects may occur. Anyone in good health is eligible for the procedure.
