Cosmetic Podiatry

Botox Injections

 

What can they treat?

Excessive sweaty smelly feet , also termed as" hyperhidrosis", Botulinum toxin is approved to treat the symptoms of severe sweating when topical medicines do not work well enough.

Botulinum toxin is injected into the affected areas to help control this condition by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands do not receive chemical signals, the severe sweating settles.

Dermal Fillers

 

Fillers for Your Feet

Dermal fillers in podiatry are generally used to pad out and cushion a bony prominence. The most common example is to provide a cushioning for a reoccurring or persistent corn mainly in between the little toe and its neighbouring toe (interdigital corns). There are also other common locations found in the ball of the foot and the tip of the toes.

Sometimes corns are caused by a structural problem (e.g. hammer/claw toes), footwear, the way you walk, a lack of fatty padding or bony changes in the foot.

Dermal filler is normally injected underneath the corn to provide cushioning and therefore ease discomfort and prevent reoccurrence.

 

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are predominantly used for cosmetic treatments to plump up and give instant pain relief to the bottom of the foot. They are gels of various thicknesses which are made from hyaluronic acid (HA) or poly-L-lactic-acid.

HA develops by natural means within the body, existing in the skin, joints and eyes. It is hydrophilic, which means it draws in water molecules to ‘plump’ up, cushion, and keep structures resilient and flexible. It is an organic compound which over time normally deteriorates. The effects can last up 6-8 months then naturally break down by the body over time

They are used to treat:

  • BONY PROMINENCES

  • PAINFUL CORNS

  • FAT PAD ATROPHY

  • HAMMER TOES
