“Foot cushioning” with dermal fillers is one of the newest treatments for painful areas on the ball of the foot where there can be significant pressure on the metatarsal bones within the foot.
As we get older the fat padding on the bottom of the foot withers away and we lose shock absorption. The injection procedure is simple and can be performed in as little as 15 minutes in your podiatrist’s office. The procedure is relatively inexpensive and painless and has virtually no period of recovery. The filler is broken down over time and dissolves in the body naturally. That means, however, that the procedure will need to be repeated in the future.
There is numerous dermal filler. We tend to use Radiasse. RADIESSE is comprised of Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel carrier. Once injected, it provides immediate volume and correction but continues to work by stimulating the body to produce its own natural collagen. Over time, the gel is absorbed and the body metabolizes the CaHA microspheres leaving behind only your own natural collagen.
