Foot Fillers

We are proud to introduce to Southsea, Dermal Filler Cushioning in the feet.

Our Podiatrist Nishal Patel is now offering dermal foot fillers. Cushioning for the feet, or Dermal fillers is an innovative method of introducing extra cushioning under tender areas of the foot, for example, under painful corns and areas where the fatty pad is less than normal. The filler used is Belotero Volume which is a hyaluronic acid filler. Hyaluronic acid is already very abundant in the body. One of the functions of this is that it stimulates the body’s own production of collagen. The dermal filler is painlessly injected fairly superficially into the skin under local anaesthetic.

Dermal Fillers in the feet will allow Nishal to:

  • Eradicate corns
  • Help patients who have the need to wear high heels, wear them for longer
  • Help with reduced fatty padding on the soles of feet
  • Help deal with hammertoes

Dermal fillers can work where conventional podiatric attempts have failed in alleviating foot pain and negate the need to have padding stuck to the foot which can impede on hygiene and look unsightly. Please watch the short video below for more information.

Aftercare

What to expect

  • After dermal filler treatment you might experience slight redness, swelling, bruising, tenderness and/or a numb sensation in the area treated. You might wish to gently apply bagged ice or a cold compress to the injection area after treatment to help reduce swelling.
  • It is normal to feel “firmness” in the treatment area for the first few days; over time the area will soften.
  • These possible side effects are usually mild and related to the procedure. They are generally short term and disappear within the first few days after treatment.
  • The site of filler injection will be suitably padded, you MUST leave the pad on and undisturbed for a minimum of 48 hours to allow the fillers to work, longer is recommended.

Aftercare

  • Avoid alcohol, strenuous exercise or excessive sun exposure, for at least 48 hours post-treatment.
  • It is normal to have some swelling after treatment and this may give you an imbalanced appearance. It is best not to assess your results for at least 72 hours or until all swelling has subsided. Applying an ice pack to the treated area 2-3 times a day will help settle the swelling. If you have bruising, use cold packs for the first 48 hours and then heat thereafter, to help disperse the bruise.
  • If you notice any soft lumps, you may firmly massage these with some serum or suitable oil. If there is no improvement, call during the working day for advice.
