I’m from Washington, D.C., and I would love to get some fillers in my face but I have never been good with shots. Is there any way to put me under or sedate me for the procedure?
Most of the fillers today have numbing medication mixed into the filler, making the injection well tolerated by most patients. In our greater Washington DC offices, we offer a topical numbing cream that can also be used prior to any injections. Sedation or general anesthesia has its own associated risks and costs and I wouldn’t recommend it for a filler injections.
