NEW YORK, Oct. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Most women will sacrifice comfort for fashion, especially when it comes to wearing a gorgeous pair of high heels that 'make' an outfit. Unfortunately, over time, the fat pad at the ball of the foot thins and shifts so bones are not as well padded. Combine these changes with a heel height over two inches and it's a recipe for foot pain. "Now there is an alternative to forsaking your favorite pair of sky high Louboutins," states Dr. Archer. "The same dermal filler that is used in the face to fill deep lines and make us look younger can also make our feet feel younger. Sculptra is placed where fat has been lost under the bones in the balls of the feet thereby restoring padding and allowing women to wear their high heels again. The great advantage of using Sculptra over other dermal fillers is that it causes the skin to thicken by building collagen. Its effects are longer lasting, usually up to one year."
Sculptra, or poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), is an FDA approved injectable dermal filler used by many cosmetic surgeons, such as Dr. Amiya Prasad on Manhattan's upper-east-side. "As we get older we lose volume in the face resulting in hollowing," states Dr. Prasad. "We routinely use Sculptra to create a uniform restoration of lost facial volume in the temples, the cheeks and also to accentuate the cheek bones."
