Understanding the Role and Benefits of Lidocaine in Dermal Fillers

Vivacy Stylage dermal fillers with lidocaine

At House of Beauty, Camberley, we are devoted to ensuring your beauty journey is as comfortable and pleasant as possible. One way we achieve this is by using dermal fillers that contain lidocaine. Lidocaine is a common ingredient in many dermal fillers and is key in ensuring your comfort during the procedure. In this article, we will explore the role of lidocaine in dermal fillers, its benefits, and its safety.

Understanding Lidocaine

Lidocaine, also known as xylocaine or lignocaine, is a local anesthetic and antiarrhythmic drug. In dermal fillers, it’s used as a local anesthetic to reduce discomfort or pain during the injection process. It works by causing a temporary numbing effect in the area where the filler is injected. This makes the procedure more comfortable for you, allowing you to relax as our senior injector, Anna, works her magic.

The Benefits of Lidocaine in Dermal Fillers

The main benefit of lidocaine in dermal fillers is that it significantly improves the comfort of the procedure. Here are a few reasons why lidocaine-enhanced fillers can enhance your treatment experience:

  1. Minimises Pain: Lidocaine helps numb the area being treated, reducing any pain or discomfort during the injection process.
  2. Reduces Anxiety: If you’re nervous about the procedure, knowing that the filler contains lidocaine can help to alleviate some anxiety.
  3. Speeds Up the Procedure: Since the pain is minimised, there’s no need for a separate numbing agent. This means your procedure can be completed more quickly and efficiently.

Safety of Lidocaine in Dermal Fillers

Lidocaine has been used in medical and dental procedures for years and is generally considered safe. However, as with any medication, there are potential side effects, and a small number of people may be allergic to lidocaine. Some common side effects can include minor redness, swelling at the injection site, or a small bruise. These effects are typically temporary and subside within a few days.

Before the procedure, Anna will discuss your medical history with you to ensure that lidocaine is safe for you. If you’ve had an allergic reaction to lidocaine or any other local anesthetic in the past, be sure to let her know. At House of Beauty, your safety is our utmost priority.

Lidocaine plays a significant role in ensuring your dermal filler procedure is comfortable and pain-free. For more details about dermal fillers or to schedule a consultation with Anna, please see our booking page.
