One of women’s greatest tools of seduction, high heels create the illusion of slender, longer, and thinner legs.
However, heels modify the distribution of the body’s weight from the heel to the bones at the front of the foot. This leads to aches and pains which eventually impede walking or standing for long periods of time.
Many women use gel cushions, but these change the foot’s position in the shoe and can cause pressure or friction in other parts of the foot. Ironically, switching to flat shoes can lead to plantar fasciitis.
Hyaluronic acid injections allow us to reconstruct and reinforce the plantar cushions, and make high heel pain disappear.
This technique is called a ‘Loub Job’, referencing the shoes of Christian Louboutin, and is very fashionable in the USA and Great Britain.
This is a safe technique (in the hands of an experienced practitioner) and the recovery time is reduced to the minimum.
