Almost Painless : Injectables

I knew there was something I forgot to post about! Just before Christmas I had a few fillers put in to disguise those smoky creases (yes, I know, a smoking beauty editor - shoot me now) round my mouth…I always go to the same clinic (Courthouse Clinic in Wimpole St - and before you ask, no, I don’t have shares in it!!) but have had various practitioners over the past couple of years. This time I got the head honcho…Dr Patrick Bowler, who used an injectable - Restylane - with a pain killing ingredient in it. Now, anyone who has ever had injectables put in the tiny creases around the mouth - or anywhere else for that matter - will know it takes you to the limits of your pain threshold. With so many nerve endings in such a sensitive area, you really, really have to want this procedure! Personally, I love Restylane for its instant wrinkle ridding results so am prepared to go through the horrible sensation. However, the filler with pain killer was a revelation…much less painful (I still felt a pinprick) and entirely bearable…and still with the same line erasing results. If you feel like venturing into the world of injectables then please do make sure that you ask for the type with pain killer in it, and don’t rely on Emla cream that is given out by many clinics, to numb the area, because it doesn’t really.
