Stiletto RX Injections Creates Pillows for the Feet
It’s a fact: Women love their high-end, high heel designer shoes. And while high heels are sexy and gorgeous, they make women around the world scream, “My feet are killing me” after a few hours of wear. Regardless, the fact remains; women love their shoes and will subject themselves to the pain. But now, there is a way for women to wear their high heels and be pain-free.
Podiatric Physician Kurte W. Shepherd, DPM is now offering a procedure that will create a pillow-like cushion on the ball of the foot. By injecting Stiletto RX, a safe, synthetic, and biocompatible material (a material that does not harm the body) below the surface of the skin, it puffs up areas that have atrophied over the years due to wear and tear.
I was trained by noted podiatric surgeon Dr. Suzanne M. Levine of Manhattan’s Institute Beaute who pioneered this procedure.
The procedure is ideal for people who are on their feet all day like entertainers, athletes, professional dancers, runners, hairdressers, professors, salespeople, plastic surgeons and women who refuse to give up their high heels.
Dr. Shepherd utilizes this material to supplement areas such as the balls of the feet and other bony areas where there is atrophy of the fat pad, often caused by wearing high heels and normal aging. Radiesse® fills those flattened areas and provides internal cushioning in the feet, creating padding between the skin and the bones of the foot. Loss of fat on the bottom of the foot is common, especially in women. This can result in pain and burning on the ball of the foot.
The foot is a complex structure of 26 bones and 33 joints, layered with an intertwining web of more than 120 muscles, ligaments, and nerves. Since the feet are very small compared with the rest of the body, the impact of each step exerts tremendous force upon them about 50% greater than the persons body weight. During a typical day, people spend about 4 hours on their feet and take 8,000 -“ 10,000 steps. This means that the feet support a combined force equivalent to several hundred tons every day.
This procedure allows women to be slaves to their fashion, not to their foot pain.
