Lip filler injections, such as Juvaderm, Restylane and Radiesse are used to plump the lips and make them more appealing. While this procedure is commonly know to be very effective, it is also known to be painful as well. Due to the pain factor many physicians use numbing cream for lip injections to make the procedure less painful and more comfortable.

Dr Rajani uses NeuroMed BLT to numb the treatment area to improve patient comfort and a more positive outcome.
Dr. Rajani has participated with the leading cosmetic centers in the United States and abroad with over 15 years of experience in the aesthetic field.

What are lip filler injections?
There are many types of dermal fillers that can be injected in your lips and around your mouth. But the most common fillers today are products that contain substances similar to hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body. It helps increase volume in your lips. Since these treatments can be painful, the majority of clinicians use numbing cream for lip injections.
Other types and forms of lip augmentation treatments:
Collagen, once the most common dermal filler, is used less often today. The newer options are safer and the effects last longer.
Fat injections and implants are other methods to plump lips. But they aren’t used as much today because the results vary and there is a greater risk of side effects.
The most common product brands of lip injections are:
- Restylane, Restylane-L, Restylane Silk
- Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus
- Belotero Balance
- Prevelle Silk
Some of these products contain lidocaine, a local anesthetic. This local anesthetic helps to numb the treatment area to reduce the associated pain. However, the initial injections can still cause pain. Further the lidocaine often causes additional initial pain when first injected. In order to ease the pain of both the lidocaine included injections and even, more so, those that do not include the lidocaine, most clinicians use a numbing cream for lip injections as a pain management pre-treatment method prior to the procedures. Using numbing cream for lip injections prior to the treatment helps to make the procedure much more comfortable and manageable. Without the use of numbing cream for lip injections, clinicians have found that the procedure is most often too painful for the patients to manage.
What is the best numbing cream for lip injections?
NeuroMed BLT is often used by many clinicians as their primary “go-to” numbing cream for lip injections. There are many reasons why the vast number of these clinicians use NeuroMed BLT as their primary numbing cream for lip injections. Some of these reasons clinicians report include:
- Sanitary, single-use packaging to reduce the risk of cross-contamination
- Metered dose packaging sizes that are ideal for lip injection treatments
- Rapid onset – NeuroMed topical anesthetics include a patented skin permeating delivery system unique to its products
- Smooth, creamy, medium viscosity texture
- Light, clean fresh scent
