Are Cheek Fillers Painful?

By January 3, 2022 No Comments
Located in the center of the face, the cheeks draw a lot of attention. Therefore, many patients want to make cosmetic changes to their cheeks. Whether it be slimming the cheeks, adding volume, or creating more definition, there are many options for cheek enhancement in Bellevue. One of the most common cheek enhancement procedures is cheek fillers. A common question during consultations is, “Are cheek fillers painful?” Like all injections, cheek fillers do come with some discomfort. While some patients do find the injections bearable without any form of numbing, our injectors almost always offer and use topical numbing cream. They may also use a vibration device that distracts the brain from the discomfort of the injection.  Other forms of anesthetic or numbing such as lidocaine injections are not commonly used. Overall, the injections are not too uncomfortable and most patients do not experience any major pain during or after their injections. Our injectors will discuss any concerns you have and work to make the experience as comfortable as possible for you.  To learn more, call us at 425-775-3561.
