What Is Leneva® For Corns and Calluses?

What Happens During Leneva® Treatment?
Leneva® is an injectable product that’s administered in our office in Portland, Lake Oswego, & West Linn . After Dr. Manson has placed a small amount of local anesthesia in the skin to numb the treatment area, the Leneva® fat matrix is injected just below the skin to add internal fat cushioning at your pressure point. This human fat and cellular scaffolding complex remain exactly where it has been placed and, over time, your body further fills in the scaffolding with your own fat cells. After the Leneva® is applied to your foot, you are able to go home and follow post-treatment instructions as you go about your daily life with very little downtime or discomfort.
$1000 for single callus or corn (1.5 cc of LENEVA®)
$1500 for heel (3 cc of LENEVA®)
How Is Leneva® Different From Other Treatments For Fat Pad Atrophy?
What’s so revolutionary about Leneva® is that the product organizes itself to fill in the fat deficient area, decreasing the likelihood of product displacement so that the material remains in the area where Dr. Manson placed it. This not only provides the area with an instant fat cushion, taking the pressure off the area right away, but it also inserts a scaffolding that provides a space for your body to produce new fat cells over time.
In fact, during clinical trials in which the product was used to treat pressure ulcers, researchers measured decreases in peak pressure on the wound sites, resulting in decreased callus formation. Other studies showed that Leneva® encouraged the formation of new blood vessels (vital for wound healing) and new fat cells (important for added cushioning). By creating a much longer-lasting natural cushion, Leneva® has the potential of reducing pressure and friction, and therefore, pain. This can greatly improve the quality of life of patients suffering from foot pain.
