Abstract

From the outset of a career in nursing, the individual appreciates that he/she has chosen to enter into a ‘caring’ profession. Aesthetic nurses must strive to provide, along with a high degree of professionalism, a continued caring environment for our clients within this speciality. Therefore, when considering treatment for any aesthetic procedure, safe, reliable pain control is a critical factor. Aesthetic treatments for the most part are treatments of choice as opposed to necessity; lip augmentation is by definition administered to a particularly sensitive area, and so the pain associated with such treatments requires expert but sensitive handling. The decision, taken as part of an in-depth consultation, as to which method of pain control is to be used, must be a mutual agreement between the health professional and patient in order to support concordance. A prescription-only medication is not necessarily required to facilitate this treatment, and so various options need to be considered by the prescriber to ensure the best choices are presented to the patient.
