Cosmetic injectable fillers like Juvederm Ultra XC and Restylane are incredibly popular because they provide non-surgical rejuvenation without the need for a lengthy procedure or recovery time. Although these benefits are great, many people still have one question: Are cosmetic injectable treatments painful?

Most patients have found that the injection process is relatively painless, but some have experienced some discomfort during the procedure. To address this, advancements have been made in the formulas of these products to make the entire process much more comfortable.

Juvederm’s entire line of XC products and many other brands now feature lidocaine in their formula. Lidocaine is a local anesthetic that will numb the area to reduce any discomfort.
