One of the biggest fears people have when it comes to facial injections is how much the treatments will hurt. If you sit in the chair and only focus on the idea that needles will be piercing your face, sure, it’ll hurt more — but only because you’re psyching yourself out. In reality, cosmetic injections hurt way less than you’d probably think.
First off, a few factors go into how much pain you may experience when getting injectable treatments. Such factors can include:
While injections really only make you feel pinches, there are ways to lessen even that small amount of pain. Your licensed healthcare provider can use a numbing agent, such as a topical or local anesthetic, in certain areas, such as your eyes or cheeks, first to prevent you from feeling pain. For more painful areas, such as your lips, he or she can offer you a more powerful dental block to reduce the pain.
