A few weeks ago, we asked you if you would give up your high heels for your health.
In response, one of our readers suggested that Botox could be the answer to the pain inflicted on us by our lovely Loubies. We were so curious to see if there was a truth about it that we decided to contact Dr. Marlene, dermatologist to find out. Here’s what she had to say:
Although she never actually performed this procedure herself, she understood why this could be a solution. “I find that people who have been wearing heels for years have underfoot problems,” she says. “They tend to lose volume in their feet, so we usually put loads on them to fix this.”
But, Dr. Marlene, there is no guarantee that Botox in the heels will work because it is considered non-compliant. But since Botox relaxes muscles and suppresses spasms, she thinks it could help ease the pain of years of frequent high heel use.
However, injecting Botox into the feet would not be a permanent solution. If you were to try this, you would have to repeat the process in four to six weeks.
