The Pain Factor

The Pain Factor - Medaesthetics

 

Pain management is an aspect which is often given low priority in clinical practice. However, at Medaesthetics® we believe that any cosmetic medical procedure should be as pain-free and as comfortable 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 clinical staff pay special attention to this and have developed and refined special treatment techniques to make common cosmetic procedures as comfortable as possible. We use topical anaesthetic 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: 3-4 out of 10
  • Hydrafacial: 0 out of 10
  • Healite: 0 out of 10
  • Laser Hair Removal: 1 out of 10

If you have received a cosmetic treatment at another clinic that caused intolerable pain or if your usual treatment provider doesn't have a gentle hand, then make sure to try our service at least once.
