Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Minimally invasive cosmetic facial surgery procedures including injectable lip fillers are more popular than ever. Many of the newer fillers are more painful to inject than previous products and require a greater level of pain control.

OBJECTIVE:

The objective of this article is to describe a simple method of local anesthesia infiltration for pain control when injecting filler substances into the lips and perioral and nasolabial fold areas.

MATERIALS AND METHODS:

The preinjection topical anesthetic preparation, the actual infiltration techniques, and the author's experience are reviewed.

RESULTS:

These infiltration techniques are simple to perform and provide adequate anesthesia for the painless injection of filler substances in the lips and perioral, nasolabial regions.

CONCLUSION:

This simple intraoral infiltration technique is well tolerated and appreciated by patients and facilitates the experience of filler injection for both the patient and the doctor.
