For years now, cosmetic surgeons have been using injectable fillers in people’s faces to make them look younger and feel better about themselves. Well, leave it to medical science, a new application for the same type of FDA approved product, and it involves injectable fillers for the feet. It’s true, Juvederm for your feet now allows you to dance the night away after having worked all day.
Every time you get so much as a twinge of pain in your foot, you are off to the pharmacy for a remedy, but other than when actual pain develops, you spend little time considering your feet. Wake up call! We all abuse and stress our feet on a daily basis. Multiply that by a million, and there you have it, an explanation for foot pain.
Women especially have greater and more frequent complaints because of their choice in shoes. High heels that just about force you onto the balls of your feet seem to be a major factor in “ball of foot” pain. As time marches on, the effects of time and abuse thin the underlying tissues in the bottom of the foot. With the natural padding no longer effective, bone presses on the ball of the foot and causes significant pain. Fillers, such as Juvederm or Sculptra are injected beneath the skin in order to pad the area, thereby replacing what nature and aging had taken away. This gel like substance can be used in different parts of the foot – bottom top and sides. These gel substances have surprising longevity and offer the patient months free from pain. With the comfort of the patient in mind, these gels are manufactured with a mild anesthetic to reduce discomfort associated with the shot.
The process requires only a short time investment of about 20 minutes. The patient can walk away with only mild discomfort from the injection itself. A filler treatment lasts for up to nine months, and as subsequent treatments are administered, more benefit is recognized. The treatment is safe, effective and can be repeated as often as necessary.
If you are experiencing foot pain and think you may benefit from injectable fillers, call Drs. Joel Brook, Arroyo, and McClurkin at (972) 853-7100 (Merit Drive Dallas) or (972) 943-3323 (Baylor/Plano). Ask them to advise you about the benefits of Juvederm. Dallas Podiatry Works is all about wanting you to enjoy pain free living. Go ahead – take a walk in the clouds!
The doctor has great “bedside manners” when talking to patients. Great staff and comfortable atmosphere.
The staff at Dallas Podiatry Works could not have been more courteous, helpful, and professional in doing their job. They made me feel comfortable when I was there, which is certainly appreciated. They answered all the questions that I had and just made each visit the most pleasurable that it could be. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing this type of foot care.
I would highly recommend Dr. Brook to anyone with foot problems–especially problems that stump other podiatrists. He really is very caring and very knowledgeable.
Dr. Joel Brook and the staff were nice and helpful. Though I was a new patient, I got right in as soon as they were open in my preferred location. They diagnosed the problem and provided medicines along with a perfect gel bandage so I could keep exercising while my toes healed. My toes already hurt less and look a little better each day. If I have future issues, I will be a repeat customer. Here’s hoping I don’t, but at least I know my feet are in good hands.
I visited this office for an ingrown toe nail a few years ago. After seeing another doctor, who made it worse, he referred me to Dallas Podiatry Works. The doctor there was able to fix my problem. I’m not great with reviews, all I can tell you is that this doctor and staff will have you up and running or doing whatever it is you do in no time. You will be in great hands. You’d be a fool not to use this doctor. Now its time to visit him again for the other toe.
Been having bad ankle pains for 6 months was referred here and it was a great visit ladies in the front desk medical assistants and the Doctor were all very friendly and make you feel very comfortable.
