WHY BUY NUMBING CREAMS FOR DERMAL FILLER INJECTIONS

A numbing cream (or an anesthetic) is a medication that causes temporary loss of sensation. Such cream is classified as a “local anesthetic” which means it causes loss of pain sensation for a particular area of the body while maintaining consciousness.

These medications are generally administered to facilitate a variety of dermatological procedures such as dermal filler injections, botox injections, facial mesotherapy and anti-cellulite injections as well as lipotherapy, microdermabrasion, chemical peeling, laser surgery and other cosmetic treatments. These skin numbing creams play important role in the cosmetic dermatology by offering a patient comfort with minimal side effects.

MAIN CONCERNS WHILE PERFORMING DERMAL FILLER INJECTIONS
When performing injectable filler procedures, pain control is of primary concerns, along with other injection-related events such as control of bleeding, bruising and swelling. It is important to consider such components of injections pain as:

~ Anatomic location where the planned injection is to be performed, i.e. the areas – lips, cheeks, back of the hands;
~ Type of tissues injected, for example, intradermal injections are more painful than subdermal injections;
~ Needle size – thinner is better.

Next concern is the product that is being injected. It also plays a role in a degree of pain experienced by a patient. Some products are premixed with lidocaine, other products are mixed with anaesthetic at the time of injection, and still others may not be mixed with an anesthetic at all.

Injector technique is another concern: some injectors use a smoother “gliding” approach to gently pass the needle through the skin, while others use a “stab-like” approach to penetrate the skin.

Pain control is a complex subject, even in a procedure as simple as the injection of facial dermal fillers, lip enhancing fillers and botox.

Products, which contain a combination of anesthetic agents – EMLA, Pliaglis – are applied to the skin for varying lengths of time prior to the procedure and can significantly moderate the pain experienced. These agents are safe and effective, but dosage levels must be maintained in the safe range.

Finally, for especially sensitive areas and for especially nervous patients, a nerve block may be used. Quick, simple, safe, and effective, nerve blocks are a mainstay of pain control, especially in such areas as lips during such procedures as lips enhancement. Nearly complete anesthesia may be achieved with little time and effort, and patients are usually very tolerant.

SIDE EFFECTS OF DERMAL FILLER INJECTIONS, BOTOX, MESOTHERAPY, LIPOTHERAPY INJECTIONS & OTHER COSMETIC PROCEDURES

Post Juvederm Bruising… “How Long Will It Last? Can I Speed Healing?” – these are the questions we ask our aesthetic practitioner once dermal filler procedure is over.

Cosmetic treatments, such as dermal filler injections, do a great job filling out lines and wrinkles, enhancing lips, restoring facial volume, but they can cause temporary bruising and swelling.

WHY YOU SHOULD AVOID BRUISING AFTER DERMAL FILLER INJECTIONS

Although bruising from fillers is normal and should be expected, no one likes it. A bruise causes discoloration and sometimes is quite difficult to cover up. Many patients wish to return to normal daily activities without announcing to their colleagues and family members they’ve just had an aesthetic treatment, so to avoid patients’ complaints, treatment of bruises should be a main priority for an aesthetic practitioner.

No plastic surgeon can guarantee that you will not bruise from injectable treatments, but the good news is that there is a lot you can do before and even after your appointment to minimize any unsightly colouring and in some cases prevent it all together.

PRE & POST DERMAL FILLER INJECTIONS TIPS

Here are a few pre and post treatment tips that can help you avoid any unnecessary bruising:

~ Avoid Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Naproxen, Advil. These medications reduce activity of platelets, which are the cells in your blood that stop bleeding and bruising when your blood vessels are damaged. If your platelets don’t seal off the blood vessels that are disrupted during injectable treatments, your likelihood of getting a bruise is much higher than normal. Avoid these medications for at least a week prior to your treatment. If you need pain medication, consider Tylenol as a substitute;

~ Avoid wine & alcohol. Alcohol also has some anti-platelet effects and increases your chances of bruising in the same way that Aspirin does. Avoiding alcohol the night before and the night you have your injectable treatment really helps to prevent bruising;

~ Use a numbing cream. If your aesthetic practitioner applies numbing cream about 30 minutes before starting the injections, it will help prevent bruising and make you more comfortable during the treatment. Some anesthetics slightly constrict blood vessels making bruising less likely;

~ Use ice. Apply ice pack to the treatment area before and after your injection. Cold constricts blood vessels, they become smaller and less likely to get in the way of a needle;

~ Use anti-bruising Supplements.Take Arnica – a supplement that reduces bleeding and inflammation. Place 4 x Arnica pills under your tongue, twice a day. Take Bromelain – a pineapple-based enzyme that also helps to reduce inflammation and bruising. Bromelain is helpful in reducing any swelling after the procedure and may be taken three days prior to your treatment and continue for one week after.

If you do bruise, use a highly effective and fast acting anti-bruising cream Chelaskin with Lactoferrin – the post-filler, post-mesotherapy, post-sclerotherapy, post-laser, post skin-roller, post-dermabrasion, post-rhinoplasty treatment.
