What is foot filler procedure? Foot cushioning’ with dermal fillers is the latest treatment being demanded by those ladies who desire beautiful heels, made famous by shoe styles from designers such as Christian Louboutin and Manolo Blahnik, requiring gravity defying postures and put significant pressure on the metatarsal bones within the foot, hence the desire for something to `cushion` and make the wearing of the shoes more comfortable.

The concept uses hyaluronic acid dermal filler injections into the hardened skin and fat pad over the joint between the metatarsal and phalange bones of the big toe to provide extra padding on this pressure area for the treatment of metatarsalgia (pain in the ball of the foot). Additional areas of pressure, which can be determined by standing on foam molds can also be injected. A thinner or low viscosity hyaluronic acid dermal filler product is ideal to provide the cushioned effect.

During treatment you may choose to have a topical and/or local anesthetic as the plantar nerve in the foot can makes this a very sensitive area to have injections; those dermal filler products with inbuilt lidocaine may also be used. Results are expected to last approximately six months.
