How to Reduce Pain For Lidocaine Allergies

One common worry among practitioners during dermal filler treatments is the potential for a lidocaine allergy.

Most dermal fillers currently contain lidocaine, a numbing agent aimed at making treatment more comfortable. However, some patients may have allergic reactions to the antioxidants and preservatives in lidocaine, such as metabisulfite and parabens.

Non-Lidocaine Ranges

These ranges offer the same volume and lift as our standard range without compromising on results. The only difference between the two is the absence of the numbing agent. Both ranges can be injected using the same protocol. While both ranges deliver impressive results, offering both formulas gives practitioners more options when selecting the most suitable filler for their clients and technique.

Lidocaine allergies can present serious issues for both patients and practitioners, making it essential to consider them carefully during the pre-treatment consultation.

In the absence of lidocaine, practitioners must employ alternative pain relief methods to accommodate clients allergic to the numbing agent. Dermal filler injections can be uncomfortable, so providing patients with as much relief as possible is crucial for a positive treatment experience. How can practitioners reduce pain for patients with these allergies?

Using Ice for Numbing

Ice is an effective method for numbing areas of the face before injection and can also be used directly after treatments. Using ice has been proven to reduce pain by up to 50% in some patients, offering significant relief. Unlike lidocaine, which can take between 20 and 120 seconds to take effect, ice provides instant relief.
