Injectibles for Footpad Discomfort
As we age we tend to lose volume, collagen and elastin beneath the surface of our skin. This condition, known as metatarsalgia, can cause great discomfort for your feet, especially after wearing high heels for years. At Belcara Health, we treat metatarsalia with filler injections, such as Sculptra, directly into the ball of the foot. The filler acts as “internal padding” and significantly reduces pain while walking. The fillers can last approximately 6-12 months. Repeating the procedure will increase your natural collagen over time, providing longer results.
Treatment for Footpad Perspiration
Excessive sweating of the soles of the feet is a condition known as primary focal hyperhidrosis. Dr. Geoghan treats hyperhidrosis with Botox injections, a highly effective solution for this condition. Perspiration and odor will significantly decrease over the next few days and results will last for 4-20 months.
Laser for Fungal Toenails
Toenail fungus is caused by bacteria or naturally occurring fungus from the environment that has established a presence underneath your nail. The symptoms of fungal nails include: discoloration, thickening, brittle or flaking,
darkening of the skin below the nails, and separation of the nail from the nail bed
Our treatment for fungal toenails uses a specialized medical laser to kill the pathogens that cause the fungal infections. With this innovative laser technology, the treatments are painless, cause no damage to surrounding skin and have no risks or side effects. After your treatments are completed, your toenails will once again be healthy, clear and attractive.
Skin Treatments for the Foot
Belcara Health Podiatry offers treatment solutions for wide variety of dermatological conditions that afflict the feet, including: warts, lesions, varicosities, infections and dermatitis. Dr. Geoghan will create a customized treatment plan to address your condition to restore your comfort and the appearance of your feet.
Surgeries for the Foot and Ankle
People are hard on their feet. We offer functional, preventative foot surgery to address a variety of issues, including bunion and corn removal and toe straightening, lengthening and shortening.
For your convenience, privacy and comfort, these surgeries can be performed in our onsite Surgery Center at Belcara Health. Safety is always our top priority; we always work with board-certified anesthesiologists and registered nurses to ensure that your surgery is as safe as possible.
Podiatry procedures may be covered by certain insurance companies. Our office will work with your insurance company to determine the scope of your benefits. Otherwise, these treatments will be considered cosmetic.
