Lidocaine is a common injectible anesthetic that is widely used in surgery. It’s just like what your dentist uses.
Well, one of the knocks on any filler is that there is a little discomfort associated. When I used the Restylane with Lidocaine today my patient’s reaction was very positive. After the initial stick, she didn’t feel anything!! ( I treated her Naso-Labial folds)
For the Naso Labial folds I’m a believer! I will have to use it on the lips, which typically require a dental block, to see how good it really is though!
I’ll keep you posted.
