When you are perfectly happy to proceed, Dr Cooney will offer you application of a local anaesthetic cream over the areas to be injected.
This will need to stay on the skin for 20 to 30 minutes to be effective and you may decide to decline this option. There is a local anaesthetic in the product being applied. When ready to proceed Dr Cooney will mark the areas to be treated. The filler will be applied using a pre-packed syringe containing the product and a very fine needle. Most people will find this mildly uncomfortable but easily tolerated. Once the treatment is applied the skin will be gently cleansed.
