Hi can you please tell me if this procedure is painful or if it is numbed prior & a cost please ( a longer lasting filler)
We take particular care in making sure that you are comfortable during the whole procedure. We have page of information on the options for anaesthesia here. For fillers, we generally use a combination of ; nerve blocks, ice, laughing gas (nitrous oxide) to help with any discomfort. Furthermore, most of the fillers we use have local anaesthetic mixed in with it, so it numbs as it goes. I generally find that fillers are not very painful to have, and tolerated well by the majority of people. For a list of prices on fillers, please click here.
