Step 2: visco-supplementation by injection of hyaluronic acid

Visco-supplementation involves the injection of hyaluronic acid by the aesthetic doctor on specifically defined areas by the podiatrist, following the baropodometric examination. Hyaluronic acid is injected under local anesthetia.

This technique is used since the 90s in the treatment of osteoarthritis. It is now well known and very common in the treatment of joints such as the knee, hip, ankle, shoulder or the base of the thumb. In addition, the visco-supplementation by hyaluronic acid injection has proven itself for more than three years in the treatment of pain due to atrophy of the footpad due to wearing high heels.
