Comfy stilettos? Give em the needle.
We keep beating down the flesh at the bottom of our feet, and with age we lose the fat pads. This can result in burning and pain, especially on the balls of the foot. But, as with many symptoms of aging, help is but a needle away. Dr. Suzanne Levine, a New York-based "podiatrist to the stars," has pioneered a treatment using injectables that creates the feeling of "pillows in your feet." "It's biodegradable hyaluronic acid and Sephadex [sugar glucose beads], which stimulates your own soft tissue to produce more collagen," Chelin explains. "We're just replacing what nature takes away." Results can last up to 18 months, he says, although "many high-heel devotees get treated about a week before their big glam outings."
