Podiatrist Dr. Krista Archer Treats Patient's Seeking Sculptra Injections for Foot Pain

March 12, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
New York City Podiatrist Krista Archer is treating patients suffering from foot pain with a product that is often thought of as a beauty treatment for a younger looking complexion.

The beauty product known as Sculptra is made from poly-L-lactic acid which helps to replace collagen where fat has been lost. Dr Krista Archer is using it to create padding in the balls of the feet in order to relieve pain. Once exclusively used for people's faces to reduce signs of aging, Sculptra is now also being used to give a "foot lift" to help patients with metatarsalgia.

Metatarsalgia, or ball of foot pain, is a very common discomfort. This can cause pain and sometimes a burning sensation while walking.

"The balls of the feet get tender as we age, but now science can help us to give patients more padding and fullness in their feet. 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 FDA approved and provides the desired 'cushioned' effect after only 2 or 3 visits.

Sculptra is distributed by Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc., a multinational pharmaceutical company that develops, manufactures and markets products primarily in the areas of neurology, dermatology and branded generics.

Dr. Archer is the creator of ARCH skin products, which use natural ingredients to heal, moisturize and protect feet. ARCH Sole Savour Creme, Nail Oil, and other remedies by Dr. Krista Archer are available for purchase online and in select stores.
