Foot pain is a very real part of life for millions of Americans every day. The feet have plenty of pressure put on them from walking and exercise, and they are often crammed into tight-fitting shoes as well. Your feet are naturally designed with extra layers of cushioning around several key areas to protect your bones and to keep you comfortable as you walk. However, these cushioning areas may have disintegrated over the years or may have worn away or been destroyed as a result of injury or surgery. Rather than struggle through any more discomfort, we encourage you to look into our treatments with Hyaluronic Acid-based Dermal Fillers that we offer at Sole Aesthetic in Bellaire.
A surprising use for dermal fillers is to improve comfort in the feet. Although these treatments are most commonly used for filling in deep-set lines in the face or for providing a fuller look for the lips, they can be used in some more unconventional ways as well. Dermal fillers can be used in a variety of areas of the feet to decrease discomfort and to increase the cushioning. We can place it in your foot pads or around other bony prominences that may press against your shoes.
Just as dermal fillers are used for temporary relief of wrinkles, they are also chosen as temporary treatments in the feet. Dermal fillers are a minimally invasive treatment that can be provided in a single simple office session. You will be awake throughout the entire treatment, and we will ensure that you are comfortable throughout this time. You may need topical or local anesthetic to control any discomfort.
Dermal Fillers provide immediate results that continue to grow over the next week. You may notice immediate improvement in your comfort levels as you walk and will find that your foot still looks completely natural. If you want to keep up these great results and keep any further discomfort away, you will need to come back to our Bellaire office regularly for follow-up treatments. One benefit patients love is that dermal fillers do not come with the temporary swelling that is commonly seen with other injectables. Therefore, you should be able to get back to your normal life and activities quickly.
Hyaluronic acid, the main component within dermal fillers, is produced naturally in your body and is the substance that holds moisture between the cells of the skin and underlying tissues. Therefore, the small, spherical, gel-like composition of hyaluronic acid will immediately increase the padding in your feet while the hyaluronic acid will continue to pull moisture into the area for several days, further amping up your results.
