What Are Dermal Filler Injections?

At My Foot Medic, we offer dermal filler injections to address a range of foot-related issues. Dermal filler injections are the introduction of a gel-like substance beneath the skin to offer cushioning, ease pressure, and replenish lost fatty tissue. Renowned for their rapid efficacy, these injections are a sought-after solution for addressing pressure related foot pain and discomfort. Specifically tailored for feet, dermal fillers can effectively target concerns such as corns, calluses, recurrent ulcers, and other high-pressure areas lacking natural fatty padding.

The procedure begins with the application of a local anaesthetic injection to numb the foot, followed by the precise administration of dermal fillers into the designated area(s).


Dermal filler injections are commonly used to treat various foot-related issues, including:

Plantar Fat Pad Atrophy:

Dermal fillers can be used to restore cushioning and padding in the ball of the foot, addressing discomfort caused by fat pad thinning.


Dermal fillers can improve the appearance and alleviate discomfort associated with hard skin build up on the feet.


Dermal fillers can be used to stop recurrent corns from returning.

These treatments can be tailored to address individual concerns and improve both the function and comfort of the feet.


Dermal filler injections can help in several ways:

Restoring Comfort:

By restoring volume and cushioning, dermal fillers can alleviate pain and discomfort associated with conditions such as plantar fat pad atrophy, allowing for improved comfort while walking and standing.

Reducing Hard Skin Build-Up and Preventing Corns:

Dermal filler injections can help reduce the build-up of hard skin and prevent the recurrence of corns, particularly in areas of high pressure or friction on the feet.

The Elderly:

Aging can lead to natural fat pad atrophy and changes in foot structure, making the elderly particularly suitable candidates for dermal filler injections to restore cushioning and alleviate discomfort.

High Heel Wearers:

Those who frequently wear high heels may experience foot pain and discomfort due to increased pressure on the forefoot. Dermal fillers can provide relief and improve comfort for this group.

Minimal Downtime:

Patients can typically resume their regular activities following within a few days of the procedure, making dermal filler injections a convenient option for those with busy lifestyles.

It’s important to consult a qualified podiatrist to determine if dermal filler injections are suitable for addressing your specific concerns.

Dermal filler injections work by introducing a gel-like substance beneath the skin to restore lost volume and improve skin elasticity. The process typically involves the following steps:

Restoring Volume:

The dermal filler, which can consist of naturally derived or synthetic materials, is carefully injected into targeted areas of the feet. Once injected, the filler serves to restore volume. This is particularly helpful for cushioning high pressure areas of the feet.

Attracting Water to the Injection Site:

Dermal fillers have the ability to attract water to the injection site, helping to hydrate and plump the surrounding tissues. This hydration contributes to improved skin texture and suppleness, further enhancing the overall effectiveness of the treatment.

Dermal filler injections work to address volume loss and cushion high-pressure areas of the feet. They provide relief for various foot-related concerns such as corns or callus.


Dermal fillers can last up to 12 months, with the duration depending on the treated area, the type of filler used, and individual anatomy. However, it’s essential to note that every patient metabolises fillers differently. Understanding the longevity of dermal fillers is crucial, and our experienced podiatrists can provide personalised consultations to discuss your specific needs and develop a tailored treatment plan based on your unique requirements.

At My Foot Medic, we prioritise patient comfort and safety. During dermal filler injections, patients may experience some discomfort, such as minor stinging or a sensation of pressure at the injection site. However, to ensure a positive experience, we use various techniques to minimise any potential discomfort, and apply a local anaesthetic, to enhance patient comfort during the procedure. Our experienced podiatrists are dedicated to providing personalised care and will discuss pain management options with you to ensure your treatment is as comfortable as possible.

Dermal fillers can be a highly effective and worthwhile investment for individuals seeking to improve the comfort, function, and aesthetics of their feet. Whether you’re looking to reduce foot pain and discomfort, improve weight distribution, prevent corns from returning, or enhance the appearance of your feet, dermal fillers offer a non-surgical solution with minimal downtime. Many of our patients have found that the benefits of dermal fillers, such as increased comfort and improved foot function, have significantly improved their quality of life. Our experienced podiatrists at My Foot Medic are dedicated to providing personalised consultations to discuss your specific needs and develop a tailored treatment plan, ensuring that dermal fillers are a worthwhile and rewarding investment in your foot health and overall well-being.

While dermal fillers are generally safe and effective for many individuals, certain groups should exercise caution or avoid dermal filler treatments. Pregnant or breastfeeding individuals should refrain from undergoing dermal filler injections, as the effects of fillers on fetal development and nursing infants have not been fully studied. Additionally, individuals with a history of severe allergic reactions or known allergies to the components of dermal fillers should avoid this treatment. Furthermore, those with active skin infections or inflammation at the treatment site should postpone dermal filler injections until the condition resolves. Our experienced podiatrists prioritise patient safety and will conduct thorough consultations to assess your suitability for dermal filler treatments, ensuring that the procedure is safe and appropriate for your individual circumstances.

While dermal fillers offer numerous benefits, it’s important to consider potential drawbacks. Temporary side effects such as redness, swelling, bruising, or tenderness at the injection site may occur, although these typically subside within a few days. In rare cases, more serious complications such as infection may present. Additionally, as dermal fillers are not permanent, repeated treatments may be necessary to maintain results. It’s vital to choose a qualified and experienced practitioner to minimise the risk of adverse effects and achieve optimal outcomes. Our dedicated team of podiatrists prioritises patient safety and satisfaction, conducting thorough consultations and providing personalised care to address any concerns and ensure a positive experience throughout the dermal filler treatment process.
