Fear sends signals to the body – the fight or flight syndrome kicks in. You know the feeling. For “needle phobes” other things can happen like blood pressure drop, queasy stomach, light headedness and some people react so strongly, they faint.
For some, the fear comes from long standing memories of childhood inoculations or dental work. If you’re needle phobic, you know it, so what do you do to ease that fear?
Most filler injections are completed with a cannula – which has a smooth rounded tip. It requires a “port” which is done with a needle, but the area is numbed first. So getting fillers usually only takes a couple of quick sticks – even for a fairly large area
All fillers come with lidocaine already mixed in, so the numbing inside the tissue happens quickly. Today’s needles are ultra sharp – which is good thing! The sharper the needle, the less you feel it.
Botox needles are the same size as an insulin needle – they are super tiny and injections are super fast!
