Is injecting Botox into your feet safe? Davis says yes, but with a caveat. “As long as it’s not masking pain connected to a bigger issue that needs to be treated, such as a fracture or underlying systemic disease,” she says. “Just as I wouldn’t recommend a podiatrist inject Botox in your face, I wouldn’t recommend seeing a derm for injections in the feet that could be related to an area of expertise only a podiatrist would have,” With that being said, phone a podiatrist for all foot Botox needs.
