Over the course of the past decade, injectable treatments like Botox, Sculptra, Juvederm, and Radiesse have become more and more popular procedures for people of all ages, and it’s no wonder why. Injectable treatments offer quick and fantastic results in our everyday struggle against combating the aging process. However, did you know that more and more people are turning these treatments into procedures oriented to improve the look and feel of our feet? With foot beautification at an all-time high, more people are going to extremes to make sure that their feet are just as beautiful and presentable as the rest of their figure.
At Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego, we want our patients to know that the use for injectable treatments is growing—from the ground up.
Botox Injections For Hammer Toes & Stinky Feet
With more people caring for their feet like they do their face, weekly pedicures, soaks, and nightly cream application is becoming extremely common. A growing procedure to correct hammer toes, better known as toes that bend in the middle, is injecting the toes that have this unsightly bend with Botox. The Botox paralyzes the muscles, and results in the inability for the muscle to move, decreasing the bend.
For those who suffer from extreme sweating of the feet, Botox can also be used to combat the fight against a stinking foot. For years, Botox has been used to treat hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating under the arms. The idea behind this is the same, as Botox injections into the footwork to paralyze the sweat glands in the area. Botox injections for the foot are ideal for those who have experienced long time trouble with foot odor.
Introducing The Loub Job
Wearing heels can be very painful, but wearing extremely high heels as designed by Christian Louboutin can be excruciating. This high-end fashion designer coined the term ‘loub job’ to refer to a procedure of the feet that makes wearing high heels much more comfortable. This type of procedure involves the injection of dermal fillers into the heels, toe pads, and balls of a person’s feet which in turn create a pillow like comfort area, much more conducive to wearing high heels. With the procedure taking under a half an hour and lasting up to six months, its no wonder why cosmetic foot procedures have increased more than 20% in the past year alone.
