Where do I need ice for?
Ice is a great numbing technique for areas of the face with thinner skin which are the most painful areas to have injected. This includes the lips, tip of the nose, under the eyes, nasolabial lines and upper nose. REVOLAX Ambassador and Fox Academy trainer, Dr Mark Gorman shared his technique on numbing with ice:
Step 1: Numb the appropriate areas
In sensitive areas, numbing cream such as LMX should be left for 20 minutes. The maximum effect takes between 40-60 minutes.
Step 2: Apply ice to each section
When using ice, there is no need to wait for longer than 20 minutes in sensitive areas and 10 minutes elsewhere. Ice has the additional benefit of reducing bruising and swelling to a minimum.
Step 3: How to apply tension
For optimum results and better pain management, maximum skin tension should be maintained. Where tissue is mobile, such as the lips and under eye, skin should be stretched however where skin is less mobile, such as the cheek and jaw, skin should be pinched.
