Pain-management strategies for cosmetic injectable treatments: an overview

Pain-management strategies for cosmetic injectable treatments: an overview Some of the most prevalent methods of reducing the discomfort associated with cosmetic injectable treatments include topical anaesthetic application and facial blocks.

Abstract

Some of the most prevalent methods of reducing the discomfort associated with cosmetic injectable treatments include topical anaesthetic application and facial blocks. The clinician's choice of needle for both botulinum toxin and dermal filler injections is significant, as is the choice of cannula. Facial blocks and infiltration techniques appear to provide significant relief in terms of efficacy and safety, particularly in sensitive areas, such as the perioral region. However, the success of these methods rests on possessing a sound technique and an accurate knowledge of facial anatomy. A variety of topical anaesthetic creams offer an alternative means of alleviating discomfort. This article reinforces the need for aesthetic practitioners providing non-surgical procedures to be adept at delivering a number of pain-relieving strategies, dependent on patient preference, the anatomical area being treated, and the chosen product or treatment.
