Dr. Jordana Szpiro, a well-known Boston podiatrist and founder of Boston Common Podiatry joins eHealth Radio and the Foot Health Channel to talk about "Foot Fillers", which is essentially, cosmetic treatment for the feet. Dr. Szpiro has brought this innovative technique that is sweeping the nation, to the Boston area.
Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Dr. Jordana Szpiro discuss the following:
- What is Foot Filler?
- Who can benefit from the application of Foot Fillers?
- Do you have to be specially trained to administer cosmetic filler such as Sculptra to the feet?
- Is it similar to having a Sculptra aesthetic treatment administered to the face? Is there any recovery time or "down time" after the Foot Filler is injected?
- What is the cost and how long will foot filler last?
Tip: Women who constantly wear high heels can truly benefit from Foot Fillers. Think of it as adding some much-needed padding to the inside of your feet rather than the outside. As you're walking, the biomechanics move the Sculptra to the right spot on your feet, creating a cushion and eliminating pain.
