Painless Fillers?

Is it possible to have fillers injected in the face, or hands, to correct the effects of aging, without pain?

I believe the answer is yes. At the very least, with a little extra time and care, the pain can be reduced to a level of mild discomfort.

For example, for the lips and nasolabial furrows, I can apply a little viscous xylocaine inside the mouth with a Qtip, then inject tiny amounts of xylocaine inside the mouth.  These injections really don't hurt, and after five minutes, the lips and furrows near the mouth can be injected quite comfortably.

In addition, new blunt-tipped cannulas can be used for many areas, and this not only diminishes discomfort, but also bruising and irritation to nerves.

Make an appointment today to discuss facial recontouring, or smoothing furrows and lines of your face, neck, chest or hands. We can do it in a way that will be very comfortable and safe for you!
