Injecting lidocaine before Radiesse
Hi. It is generally standard protocol to put topical local anaesthetic cream followed by Radiesse mixed with lidocaine. Most practitioners do not inject lidocaine into the area as it may mask the wrinkles that need to be treated. There is no set rule and practioners have many different techniques As long as you have good results that is the most important thing.

I give my patient the option of having a local anesthetic block with lidocaine if they want to feel less pain. Otherwise I mix in the lidocaine solution into the Radiesse product so the patient feels on average a 2 out of 10 pain level - very well tolerated. I always sterilize the skin prior to all of my injections.
