Pain Factor

Pain Factor

Pain management is an aspect which is often given less priority in clinical practice. At Medaesthetics® we believe that any cosmetic medical procedure should be as discomfort free as possible.

The simple fact is that for most people, cosmetic medical and surgical procedures are not a necessity but a choice, and it is therefore imperative to make the experience as pain free as possible. Our doctors pay special attention to this and have developed and refined special injection and anaesthesia techniques to make common cosmetic procedures as comfortable as possible. We use topical anesthetic creams, ice packs, vibrational anaesthesia device, inhalation anaesthesia gas (where required) and local infiltration anaesthesia for the majority of our treatments.

The pain scale

On a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 is “no pain” and 10 is “excruciating pain,” here is how most of our patients typically rate their pain when treated by our doctors for common cosmetic procedures:

Anti-wrinkle injection: 1-2 out of 10

Dermal filler (lips): 2-3 out of 10

Dermal filler (cheeks): 2 out of 10

Chemical peel: 2 out of 10

Fractional laser: 3 out of 10

Vibradermabrasion: 1 out of 10

Do the numbers above sound too good to be true? Come and see our doctors to find out for yourself.
