New Technique For Injectable Facial Fillers Improves Comfort, Recovery
(press release from UT Southwestern Medical Center)
Less pain during injections for wrinkle-fighting facial fillers. Less
swelling afterward. Less time in the office waiting for anesthesia to take
These and other benefits of a new injection technique that UT Southwestern
Medical Center plastic surgeons are helping pioneer are outlined in the October
issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. The procedure combines
lidocaine with injections of facial fillers to instantly minimize the pain and
allows plastic surgeons to begin injection procedures without waiting for
traditional anesthesia to take effect.
"People are more at ease and have far less discomfort," said Dr. Rod Rohrich,
chairman of plastic surgery at UT Southwestern. There is significant time
savings in not having to wait for traditional dental block anesthesia to take
hold, and the procedure is more pain-free with shorter recovery time.
Dr. Rohrich demonstrates the procedure in an online video that accompanies the
The technique mixes 2 percent lidocaine with certain hyaluronic and other
fillers such as Restylane or Radiesse, providing an immediate numbing effect as
the filler is injected.
Dr. Rohrich, who has used the combination for more than two years, notes, "It's
becoming more of the standard." Some popular hyaluronic fillers, such as
Prevelle and Hydrelle, are now beginning to include lidocaine as part of FDA
In addition, he said, studies have shown that mixing lidocaine with dermal
fillers noticeably reduces pain.
Minimally invasive cosmetic procedures have continued to surge despite the
economy, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS). Botox
injections are up 8 percent and hyaluronic fillers are up 6 percent.
The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery reported that Botox Cosmetic
injections have remained the most frequently performed procedure since Food and
Drug Administration approval of the product in 2002, while hyaluronic acid
dermal fillers ranked as the third most-popular procedure performed last year,
based on its annual survey of physicians.
