Dermal Fillers for Feet – what are they?

When it comes to foot health, we often focus on arch support, comfortable shoes, and regular skin and nail care. But did you know that there’s a revolutionary treatment that can add an extra layer of comfort and rejuvenation to your feet?

Dermal fillers, which have long been associated with facial aesthetics, are now making their way down to your feet, providing not only a pain-relieving enhancement but also a functional boost.

As a podiatrist, I’m excited to share with you the benefits and possibilities of dermal fillers for feet, helping you put your best foot forward.

Dermal Fillers for Feet

Understanding Dermal Fillers for feet:

Dermal fillers are Hyaluronic acid (gel-like substances) that are injected beneath the skin in the feet and can restore lost volume, provide cushions in your feet and prevent corn and callus formation.

The procedure is also known as Curacorn.

One of the main aims is to create extra cushioning for your feet and reduce the formation of corns and calluses. These fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps retain moisture and maintain skin elasticity.

By introducing hyaluronic acid to the feet, we can achieve both increased cushioning and functional improvements alleviating your pain and discomfort.

The Benefits for Feet:

  1. Comfort Enhancement: One of the primary benefits of dermal fillers for feet is the increased comfort they provide. As we age, the natural fat padding on the soles of our feet can diminish, leading to discomfort, pain, and even the development of calluses. Dermal fillers can restore this lost padding, offering a cushioning effect that alleviates pressure points and reduces pain.

  2. Cosmetic Improvement: Beyond the functional advantages, dermal fillers can enhance the appearance of your feet. They can smooth out wrinkles and fine lines on the tops of your feet, improve the contours, and give your feet a more youthful and revitalized look.
  3. Quick and Non-Invasive: Dermal filler injections are a quick and relatively painless procedure. As a podiatrist, I will carefully assess your foot structure and discuss your goals before administering the injections. The entire process usually takes less than an hour, and you can resume your daily activities shortly afterwards.

4. Minimal Downtime: Unlike surgical procedures, dermal fillers for feet require minimal downtime. There might be some mild swelling or bruising, but these effects typically subside within a few days. You need to spend 48 hours non-weight bearing on the infected area and then you’ll be able to enjoy the benefits of the treatment without interrupting your routine.

5. Tailored to Your Needs: Every individual’s feet are unique, and dermal filler treatments can be customised to address your specific concerns. Whether you’re looking to enhance comfort or improve aesthetics, the treatment can be adjusted to achieve your desired outcome.

Case Study:

Here at SO Podiatry we love a success story..

We’re delighted to share with you this brilliant result for one of our patients.

Here we have our lovely female patient, age 62, who had a long-standing painful corn between her toes.

No treatments in the past had helped or healed this stubborn corn.


After receiving Curacorn treatment, the corn never came back.

The End!

The Procedure for Dermal Fillers for Feet:

  2. Treatment day: Before the procedure, I’ll clean and numb the treatment area to ensure your comfort throughout the process.
  3. Injection: Using a fine needle, I’ll carefully inject the dermal filler beneath the skin’s surface. The procedure is precise and aims to enhance comfort and appearance simultaneously.
