Does lip filler hurt, and what are the options for pain management?

Everyone’s pain tolerance differs, but lip filler injections can cause some discomfort. The good news is there are effective ways to manage it, ensuring your experience is as comfortable as possible.

What to Expect: Most clients describe the feeling as a series of quick pinches or stings, especially in sensitive areas like the lip border.

Pain Management Options at House of Aesthetics:

  • Topical Numbing Cream: We apply a potent topical numbing cream to your lips before injections, significantly minimizing discomfort.
  • Dental Blocks (if needed): In some cases, a dental block (like the kind used at the dentist) may be offered for more complete numbing.
  • Filler with Lidocaine: Some fillers contain lidocaine, an anesthetic that provides additional numbing during the injection process.
  • Relaxation techniques: Deep breathing and calming techniques can help manage any mild discomfort.

We Prioritize Your Comfort: At House of Aesthetics, we want your lip filler experience to be positive. Discuss your pain sensitivity with your injector to determine the best approach for you.
