Dermal filler treatments are commonly used to slow down the aging process of the skin. These treatments, which many people use predominantly in the face; has applications to using these products elsewhere on the body, with one effective place being in the feet. Dr. Johanna S. Youner uses safe filler injections in feet and toes to allow comfort you may have thought was lost to aging and tissue loss.
Dermal fillers are mainly comprised of a naturally occurring sugar in the body called Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic Acid is commonly present within our body from our skin to our eyes and joints. Hyaluronic Acid helps to add volume and hydration. The treatment is soft, safe, and non-permanent, results are immediate and typically last 6-9 months. The advantages of fillers are that they are suitable for all skin types and require no pre-treatment skin test. The doctors at Park Avenue Podiatry Center also use JUVÉDERM® ULTRA, which is non-animal, naturally based, highly purified and biodegradable dermal filler.

The treatment generally takes a half hour, with the injection process lasting 15-20 minutes. The foot may be sore for a few days and can include redness or bruising at the injection site. You will see and feel the benefits immediately and with repeated treatments over time, the benefit of using fillers for the feet builds up so the effects last longer and deliver greater benefits.

CORNS & CALLUSES
WHAT ARE CORNS AND CALLUSES?
A corn is hard, thickened skin that can occur on the top, between or on the tip of the toes. A callus is similar, but is larger and usually occurs across the ball of the foot, on the heel, or on the outer side of the big toe. “Soft” corns are corns that absorb and hold moisture. They’re usually found between the smaller toes.
Corns and calluses are your skin’s way of protecting you. Hard layers of dead cells are produced when skin undergoes excessive pressure or friction. For example, where one toe rubs against the other a corn often forms. The thicker the corn or callus becomes, the morn pain and burning it may cause as it increases pressure on living tissue underneath.

TRAUMEEL® INJECTION THERAPY
HOMEOPATHIC TREATMENT FOR PAIN & INFLAMMATION
Injection Therapy is a promising homeopathic treatment option for injuries and pain management. For best results, treatment with TRAUMEEL® Injection Solution should be initiated immediately following injury or at the first sign of symptoms. TRAUMEEL® Injection Solution may be administered until symptoms disappear.
WHAT IS TREATED
TRAUMEEL® Injections treat a variety of musculoskeletal inflammation-based conditions. Soft tissue injuries respond best to TRAUMEEL® treatment, including muscles ligaments, and tendons. It is most helpful to those who experience chronic inflammation, like athletes who may have a weak area or body part that they overuse during performance.
Some common conditions that may benefit from TRAUMEEL®injections are:
Tears of ligaments, muscles, or tendons
Minor arthritis symptoms
TRAUMEEL® VS. CORTICOSTEROID
TRAUMEEL® Injections are homeopathic treatments, meaning the medicinal agent is completely derived from minerals found in nature. Because the solution is mostly plant based, there are little to no side effects, including allergic reactions which are extremely rare. The absence of other effects makes TRAUMEEL® an anti-inflammatory treatment that can be used as often as necessary. Corticosteroids, though safe when regulated by a physician, may have adverse effects if used too often. Corticosteroids can target soft tissue cells, causing them to shrink if exposed to the medication at long periods of time, so they are rarely ever administered more than once every six months. Due to the varying response patients have to corticosteroid treatment, inflammation may begin again before this time period. TRAUMEEL® may be an effective alternative to patients who do not respond fully to corticosteroid injections.
TRAUMEEL® Injections: are highly sought afternatural, homeopathic treatments for conditions that cause painful inflammation. TRAUMEEL® is a botanical extract that was largely unrecognized as an injection type of remedy in the United States for over 80 years; athletes would often travel to Europe to receive such care for sports injuries. TRAUMEEL® is primarily composed of arnica montana root, a plant extract that is commonly found in tablets and creams to relieve pain and inflammation.
Arnica montana, radix (mountain arnica), Calendula officinalis (marigold), Hamamelis virginiana (witch hazel), Millefolium (milfoil), Belladonna (deadly nightshade), Aconitum napellus (monkshood), Chamomilla (chamomile), Symphytum officinale (comfrey), Bellis perennis (daisy), Echinacea angustifolia (narrow-leafed cone flower), Echinacea purpurea (purple cone flower), Hypericum perforatum (St. John’s wort), Hepar sulphuris calcareum (calcium sulfide)
TRAUMEEL® injections are most effective when administered immediately after injury. Communication between patient and physician is essential since the dosage of TRAUMEEL® given at each injection can be based on the reaction of the patient. TRAUMEEL® injections are natural and homeopathic, so they may be repeated until symptoms disappear as routine therapy. The most effective protocol is three injections in a week to the injured area.
A patient should wear loose comfortable clothing to their injection appointment. A sterile needle will be inserted into the inflamed area and the arnica-based medicine injected directly into the pain site. Due to tenderness of the area and depending on how deeply the needle may needs to penetrate, the injection site may be sore for a few days. Over the counter anti-inflammatories will usually dull any pain while it dissipates.
The fee for each injection is $75. TRAUMEEL® injections are not covered by insurance. Best results are seen with two to three injections in one week. If you have any questions, please contact Park Avenue Podiatry Center and speak to our podiatry team.
