Popular facial filler injectables are making the move toward painless injections by adding lidocaine into their products. Lidocaine is a local anesthetic, which works to numb the injection site and ultimately provide patients with a more comfortable experience.
The facial fillers now FDA approved for use with lidocaine are Restylane®, Perlane®, and Juvederm®. These products work by injecting collagen or a collagen-like substance into the face to smooth out wrinkles and folds or to plump up lips and correct scarring. With the addition of a local anesthetic into these injections, the actual procedure will be more comfortable for patients without affecting results.
At Dermatology Associates of Atlanta, our experienced staff is well seasoned in performing every type of injection – whether it is a facial filler or Botox®/ Dysport®. Our in-house PA Delmer Henderson PA-C for example, had over 300 Botox®/Dysport® and 135 facial filler patients in 2009 alone! To develop a treatment plan specific to you, or to try a filler FDA approved with lidocaine, contact our office.
***Dysport® Love it or Leave it Challenge!! ***
Dysport® is currently running an up to $150 rebate special, challenging patients to try Dysport®! Patients can receive a $75 rebate if they try Dysport® – then after 15-30 days, if they love it, they can receive another $75 off an additional Dysport® injection. If they decide you go with another product (Botox®), patients can still receive a $75 rebate off that procedure.
