Painful feet in heels or other shoes? Dermal fillers are used for cosmetic treatments to plump up, and give instant pain relief to the bottom of the foot. Dr. Pandit uses gels of various thicknesses of hyaluronic acid . Hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring in the body , but as we age is wears out . It is a hydrophilic compound, which means it draws in water molecules to plump up, cushion, and keep structures resilient and flexible. This is why as we get older our ski, eyes, and hair feel drier Dr. Pandit will administer small amounts directly under the skin, where the padding is needed to bring back volume and cushioning. Patients who have had the procedure frequently comment; “it seems like I am walking on clouds ”.

Dermal fillers for foot cushioning can last around to 6months to 1.5 years . They will slowly break down to be naturally absorbed by the body over time. Some dermal fillers actually stimulate new collagen formation! Even as the filler breaks down, the thickness of tissue has increased. This means the effects can last a maximum of two years in the best case scenario.
