Minimal Discomfort

Firstly, the discomfort experienced during anti-wrinkle injections is minimal for most people. The needles used for these injections are very fine and are designed to minimise any pain. Most describe the sensation as a small pinch or a brief sting that lasts for less than a second. The injections themselves are relatively quick and the entire procedure usually only takes a few minutes.


Numbing Cream

We understand that everyone’s pain threshold is different. There are also those who are needle averse for a host of reasons. One of the most effective and widely used methods for pain management during anti-wrinkle injections is the application of numbing cream to the treatment area. These topical creams contain an anaesthetic such as lidocaine or prilocaine, which numb the skin and reduce discomfort. Numbing cream is applied before the procedure and left on for a short period to allow it to take effect. The injection site is desensitised, resulting in a painless treatment.


Trust Only the Best

The skill and expertise of the practitioner performing the injections plays a significant role in pain management. A well-trained professional knows how to administer the injections with precision and care, minimising any discomfort. We will use gentle techniques and communicate with you throughout the process to ensure your comfort.

Staff at Dr Tass apply the same principles to all procedures we administer. This extends beyond anti-wrinkle injections to laser genesis and body treatments like cool sculpting and cheek fillers in Melbourne. Speak to us to learn how we can help you achieve your goals.
