Dermal fillers for cosmetic concerns

Dermal fillers are one of several ways for patients to address imperfections on the skin without plastic surgery procedures, but many patients wonder whether the treatment will cause discomfort. At SkinProvement Dermatology New York, we work with patients to help them understand the process and enjoy a more comfortable appointment when undergoing cosmetic injectables.

Does the procedure cause discomfort?

Dr. Stephen Comite and his team at SkinProvement Dermatology New York in New York, New York, are approached by patients who may have a fear of needles or of experiencing discomfort. Fortunately, our team has a few recommendations to make it a comfortable experience for appointments involving injectables. Below are just a couple of suggestions for patients to consider:

  • Adding topical anesthetics. Before administering the injectables, our team can apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area. This ensures maximum effectiveness and can help in reducing discomfort in most patients
  • Slow and steady injections. Dr. Stephen Comite and his team ensure that experienced professionals deliver each injection slowly and steadily. This helps to reduce the discomfort associated with the process. Additionally, it prevents any issues with the injectable. We want our patients to have an optimal experience, so our team takes our time to administer these products consistently
  • Use of ice packs. Once the injections are complete, we encourage you to apply a few ice packs to the treatment area. This will help to reduce any inflammation or discomfort that may occur from the procedure. Some patients feel that this method helps even more than topical anesthetics, and even more so when the two techniques are combined together

At SkinProvement Dermatology New York, we understand how important it is for patients to look and feel their best, and we know that the idea of uncomfortable treatments can keep individuals from getting the care they need. Fortunately, we work with patients to make each procedure more tolerable by reducing the discomfort and anxiety associated with specific treatments like cosmetic injectables.
