Botox being used to ease the pain of high heels

Botox injectionJust when you thought all the potential uses for Botox had been found, another one reveals itself.

The anti-wrinkle treatment is now finding popularity among women who love to wear heels – but hate the pain involved.

In what has been dubbed the “Loub job”, in honour of shoe designer Christian Louboutin, the foot is numbed with anaesthetic before being injected with Botox and collagen.

Injections are placed in the toes, heels and balls of the feet to create a ‘cushion’, which pads the feet and eases the pressure and pain which plague high heel wearers.

Like Botox to treat wrinkles in the face, the results are not permanent. The cushioning effect of the injections lasts for approximately 6 months, after which treatment needs to be repeated.

The procedure is growing in popularity all the time, and with party season approaching it’s a safe bet that Botox will be easing plenty of painful tootsies this Christmas.
