29 Jun I’LL TAKE MINE WITHOUT THE PAIN, THANKS
Tryanophobia is the term given to extreme needle phobia; and it might not come as a surprise to hear that it’s one of the most common phobias. Even if your dislike of needles doesn’t reach phobic proportions, most of us would prefer not to be at the other end of a syringe.
Despite many creams and lotions claiming to offer benefits similar to those achieved from anti-wrinkle or filler injections, none have yet proven to deliver the superior wrinkle-free results that can be achieved with the tiny, little needle injections used in cosmetic procedures. So until science makes a few more leaps, needles remain the best way to remove wrinkles and give the face or lips youthful volume.
But there is good news. The old adage ‘no pain no gain’ was often used by the cosmetic industry back in the days before the current effective pain-reduction options were available. Now, various filler gels, including those offered at Artisan Clinic, actually contain a local numbing agent that works to numb the treatment area and relieve pain. Topical anaesthetic creams can also be applied prior to treatment to numb or dull sensation.
Artisan’s pain-reduction options are available at no additional cost and are administered under medical direction. Most treatments, like anti-wrinkle injections, are undetectable and painless after the procedure. But for treatments that can leave sensations afterwards, like some fillers, we provide medical ice packs and post-treatment care suggestions that will ensure you stay comfortable after your visit.
So if fear of pain or needles has been holding you back from investigating cosmetic treatment options, you can rest easy knowing that you can sit back and relax throughout treatments without the stress of discomfort or needles playing on your mind!
