The natural loss of the fatty pad in your feet can cause the ‘walking on marbles’ feeling, persistent corns and callus and even areas at rick of ulceration in people living with diabetes or Rheumatoid Arthritis.
At Stride Clinic we offer a long term solution in the form of Dermal Fillers for the Feet. We Use MyFILLER, a highly viscous Hyaluronic Acid and established aesthetic procedures to ‘cushion’ painful lesions, reduce pressure over these areas and decrease the production of callus and corns caused by friction.
Hyaluronic Acid occurs naturally in the body and is therefore biocompatible with very few side effects, it is available in various viscosities the thickest of which has been tried and tested as an injectable into the foot and is proven not to disperse under the pressure of walking or the forces exerted on feet from footwear.
Hyaluronic Acid acts by causing a response by our body that provokes the formation of collagen and draws fluid towards the area. This creates a comfortable, natural cushion between the bone and the skin and can last up to 18 months* in the foot.
Patients who will benefit from Dermal Fillers for the feet:
• Those with acute or chronic corns
• Those with areas of pressure resulting from bony changes e.g. bunions, retracted toes, or flat feet
• Those with pain in the ball of the foot causes by pressure or loss of natural fatty pad
• Those with pain in the heel caused by loss of natural fatty pad
• Those with areas of pressure caused by biomechanical changes within the foot
