Collagen Injections Not For Your Lips, But For Your Feet

Recently it seems that high heels are causing more trouble than ever. From all this news about stilettos causing health problems and ladies getting crazy foot surgery, you’d think that women would just give up and switch to flats. Alas, pumps will never go out of style, and ladies will never stop enduring the pain to wear them. The latest craze in combat is injecting collagen into the balls of one’s feet. The protein (same kind as the one that plumps lips) forms a cushioned pad on the bottom of the foot, supposedly making stilettos and the like feel more comfortable. [Ugh, sort of like those Dr. Scholl’s pads you can buy. In your foot. — Editor] In Britain, reports the Daily Mail, “Doctors say that the number of women opting to have collagen feet fillers has increased five-fold in the last year.”

The collagen pads only last for a couple of months, so you need to keep coming back for more. What’s worse? Sticking a needle into the bottom of your foot every two or three months or enduring the pain of 5-inchers for two or three hours? [Daily Mail]
