How are Dermal Fillers Administered?

Before dermal fillers are administered, a topical anesthetic cream is applied to your face. While Dr. Pero is injecting the fillers with a very fine cannula, his assistant will apply acupressure to various points on your face to help decrease the sensation of the filler as it is being applied. After application, a cold ice pack is placed on the injection site for 20 minutes to reduce local swelling.
