Don’t suffer with heel pain anymore! Sculptra Injections provide foot relief in as few as one visit.

Sculptra Injections are available for patients who have pain in the ball of the foot where there are bony prominences and/or recurrent calluses. The injectable liquid is used to add volume to areas of the body to create a soft, natural cushion. Sculptra is very safe and, in 2009, received full FDA approval for cosmetic use in the United States.

The liquid consists of a synthetic lactic acid that is made in a laboratory and contains no animal or human DNA derivatives. It very gradually disappears by the action of your own cell breakdown, but results will most often last up to two years.

Patients will notice an immediate increase in tissue volume after their first visit. It is also possible for a continued increase of volume for the next 90 days as the body will produce more collagen, which provides even more comfort. You might experience a little bruising and swelling, which is normal and should only last up to a week.

Overall, Sculptra:

  • Lessens pain under the ball of the foot
  • Lowers callus formation
  • Reduces arch, back, knee and hip pain
  • Shortens foot fatigue and muscle cramping
  • Diminishes plantar fasciitis and heel spurs
  • Provides lasting results for years

This minimally invasive office procedure is suitable for men and women and provides cushion for painful bony prominences in the feet. Depending on the amount of correction needed, usually only one treatment per year is needed to maintain the correction.

There is minimal downtown post-surgery, and, if side effects are experienced, they are generally very nominal and short lasting. There is a slight chance that you could develop small, usually invisible temporary bumps, but these will go away on their own. Small visible bumps are also very rare, but can be remedied with a little bit of an anti-inflammatory injected into the bump.

The board-certified doctors at Certified Foot & Ankle Specialists are able to provide excellent patient care and avoid small problems becoming large problems. With seven office locations located in Martin, Palm Beach and Broward counties, you are able to receive the care you need, when you need it.
