EVER wondered how Britain's WAGs manage to party until 4am in painful looking six-inch heels?
One footballer's wife has revealed she swears by £500 'Loub job' filler injections to cushion her soles.
Leanne Brown, who's married to ex-Manchester United star Wes, 40, told the Star the procedure "might just save my life".
The former Real Housewives of Cheshire star, 43, added: "This treatment is incredible". She previously confessed to having tweakments like lipo fat freezing to a non-surgical Brazilian butt lift.
This latest procedure involves injecting dermal filler into the feet – so women can dance in heels all night without feeling any pain.
It provides a cushioning effect, without changing the shape or look of your feet, to take the pressure off the front of your soles – which can lead to a burning sensation.
"The “Loub job” is a mixture of Botox and collagen fillers," explains podiatrist Margaret Dabbs.
"Botox in feet is generally aimed to reduce foot sweating then the dermal fillers are to ease pressure and provide padding – as we get older fat pads reduce.
"I would be concerned if a lot of filler is used as this tends to migrate and could cause pain somewhere else in the foot."
Dermadoc, who have clinics in London's Harley Street and WAG hotspot Manchester, charge £480 for a Loub Job – which lasts between six months and a year.
Although Leanne is the only WAG to have spoken only about the treatment – her fellow wives and girlfriends are famed for their love of toe curlingly high stilettos.
Posh Spice Victoria Beckham famously suffered from bunions after years of wearing platforms – but that hasn't deterred the likes of Coleen Rooney, Rebekah Vardy, Abbey Clancy and Danielle Lloyd from digging their heels in.
But experts have warned against the treatment – which could lead to permanent nerve or muscle damage if done wrong.
AN EXPERT‘S OPINION
Dr Sarah Jarvis, GP and Clinical Director of Patient.info, told Fabulous Digital: "I would recommend that any woman thinks very carefully before she embarks on getting dermal fillers in her feet.
"As anyone who has had a verruca knows, having something pressing into the flesh of your feet can be very painful.
"If the filler is not injected completely smoothly, it can cause painful pressure points.
"Even if it’s in the correct place, the wrong type of filler or a too-thick layer could make walking uncomfortable.
"And because the balls of your feet are put under pressure every time you step, fillers in your feet are likely to not last as long as they would in your face.
"What’s more, there are lots of delicate nerves and muscles in the feet – the anatomy is very complicated.
"If the person putting the filler in gets it wrong, it could lead to permanent nerve or muscle damage."
The 'lunch break' treatment takes between 15 and 20 minutes and has no down time – although you have to wear flats for two weeks afterwards.
Botox injections can also be added, to paralyse nerves in the feet and ease pain.
It was nicknamed the 'Loub job' after the famous red soled footwear designer, who created the first eight-inch heels.
They're particularly in demand for women aged 45 to 60, who have less natural collagen in the soles of their feet.
Of course, if you can't stretch to a £500 treatment, you can always pick up a cheap gel insert for a fiver instead.
