Is It Painful

For dermal filler procedures, a topical anesthetic, local anesthetic or nerve block may be utilized, depending upon the area to be treated and medical practitioner’s preference. The actual injection phase of many of these procedures takes just a minute or two, so any pain not managed with anesthesia is typically minimal and over quickly.  Medical practitioners can maximize comfort by using ice or other cooling devices on the treated area during dermal filler procedures.

For most BOTOX® procedures, anesthesia is usually not necessary.  While the initial injection may prick at first, the needle is so fine and the procedure so quick that any discomfort is over almost as soon as it starts.  Most patients report BOTOX® procedures to be well tolerated.

Comfort levels may vary with your medical practitioner’s technique and experience.
