I’m terrified of needles. Can anything be done during an injectable filler treatment to address this? Can you give me something for anxiety?
I have many patients who are terrified of needles but with a calm gentle technique almost all of them do very well and tolerate the Botox or filler injections. A small handful does require numbing creams and/or valium before the injection but if you take Valium, you cannot drive yourself to or from the cosmetic surgeon’s office.
