The good news about lip fillers is that by now your provider should have the tools necessary to help make your treatment session as comfortable as possible.

Topical numbing creams can be applied ahead of time to prevent too much discomfort.

Additionally, many products contain lidocaine to help create a pain-free treatment session.

While you may experience slight discomfort during your treatment, lip injections are a very speedy treatment so it will be over before you know it.
