Default Are you sure you had a nerve block?

Mosaic are you totally 100% sure you actually had a nerve block in the area they were injecting.

From my understanding a nerve block is either ON = no pain; or NOT ON = no relief from pain whatsoever.

I know this because my mother had her entire knee replaced under a nerve block! She was wide awake and told of being able to hear drilling, hammering and scraping sounds all with no pain - whilst disconcertingly wide awake.

Are you telling my Radiesse is so painful that it is worse than someone cutting off your knee and then hammering in a steel replacement?

Sounds like you didn't have a proper nerve block Who was doing it a doctor or nurse. There's a theory on the forum that nurses aren't allowed or aren't able to do nerve blocks
Botoxed and proud of it!

Default Nurses can do a nerve block

Botox queen whilst I agree with most of your post - a nerve block either blocks all pain or it doesn't you do have one big error.

Many nurses can and are able to do nerve blocks. I think more of them aren't as comfortable with the proceudre but I have certainly had an excellent nerve block from a nurse

When I got my lips done with juvederm last week I had to request an alternative to the usual nerve block( the adrenalin one )as it makes my heart race and i start to shake. Unfortunately the block they had to use was short acting and before she had a chance to finish I was aware of the needles...Big time. She tried to numb me again and they wore off even faster..........Not a pleasant experience. However the end result was great. Not sure if I want to do it again in a hurry though.

Restylane, Perlane, Juv?derm Ultra, Teosyal and Belotero. Hyaluronic acid products can come in different thicknesses or viscosities which make them a versatile choice for treating different areas of the face. A thinner product would be well suited to fine lines and wrinkles or fopr subtle enhancement of the lips whereas a thicker product is ideal for addressing volume loss and very deep wrinkles. They typically last between six and 12 months.

Default Anesthesia for Fillers

[QUOTE=mosaic;9916]Yes the pain even with double the amount of nerve block was intense. Like I said I have a high tolerance for anaesthetics. With the dentist I don't even bother, as it is a waste of time.

Seems few Drs are using Radiesse, and I can't have Aquamid until beginning of March, as Drs won't do it until all Restylane has gone.[/QUOTE]

Most fillers these days have an option to be injected with lidocaine. This greatly diminishes the pain and can obviate the need for a nerve block and topical anesthetic. Only collagen and hyaluronic acid fillers should be used in the lips due to the thinness of the skin there.

No filler is permanent yet and aquamid also lasts under four years at the maximum.
