The “Loub” Job
A new cosmetic treatment dubbed “The Loub Job”, after the famous Christian Louboutin shoe designer has become a popular and effective way to ease the discomfort of wearing high heels and at Dr Medispa in Loughton, Essex we can offer this treatment to all our patients who just cannot be without their stilettos. Dermal fillers, commonly used in the face to plump and volumise areas such as the lips and cheeks, are used via injection in the balls of the feet. This created an immediate cushioning effect which, when used with the correct dermal filler, can last for up to a year. Most dermal fillers on the market contain a naturally occurring substance which can be found in the body. This substance is called Hyaluronic Acid, or HA for short. This substance, when injected, takes on around 1000 times it’s own weight in water, plumps up the area of the skin and smoothes any lines and wrinkles when used in the facial area. For the feet, a gel like cushion is formed, thus providing protection and comfort for a high heel fanatic.
