It depends from person to person. Because there is a level of discomfort you are using a needle, however, like with any kind of aesthetic treatment, the pain is manageable. We numb the area with the EMLA cream that lasts for at least 10 to 15 minutes. But honestly, people wouldn’t keep coming back if it was that painful.
Our clients love the clinically proven lip filler treatment in london.
In this episode of Hannah London’s Podcast, we answer the question “Do Lip Fillers Hurt?”.
Watch the video to find out.
So in terms of the pain, how would we say if lip fillers are painful? Or are they not? So I know loads of people, they want to get their lips done, they come into branch and the first question we get asked after exactly what they are, Is it painful? Is that a lot of blood? Am I gonna be you know, screaming in the chair. What would you say? Lauren, you said that you had your lips to what was your experience with this?
Absolutely. So we do use filler, after we have numb the area. So we have EMLA cream put on the area for at least 10 to 15 minutes to make it quite numb. Because there is a level of discomfort you are using a needle however, it is manageable. What I would say is and we do advise to our patients that they take an aspirin afterwards and maybe use some Arnica gel to minimise discomfort and reduce bruising. But it is manageable. I believe with any kind of aesthetic treatment, they are all manageable. I mean, I know for myself, I wouldn’t want to go for my lips, if it’s my time of the month, because it will make me more sensitive. But I mean, I have a stress ball in my hand. It didn’t make me cry didn’t make me shout. I was absolutely fine. So it depends from person to person. I’m somebody who gets inflammation after my filler. And I would say that can be a little bit tender. But honestly, I wouldn’t keep coming back if it was that painful.
Definitely. And I think also as a clinic, we make the conscious effort not just to have the topical anaesthetic we also do by our fillers actually do have lidocaine in them as well. So even though the first injection site may be a slight scratch or maybe a bit of discomfort throughout the procedure, the pain does subside as the Lidocaine does kick in.
