Is the Treatment Painful?

Anytime anyone injects you with 50-100 small injections you will feel something. There is a solution to help ease the pain. Prior to the treatments (1-2 hrs) we have the patient put a topical Novacaine Cream on the area that will be injected. We have this cream available at the clinic. We then cover the cream with Saran Wrap or Press and seal to keep the caine cream in contact with the skin. It numbs the surface and the pain from injection is reduced anout 80%. Before you put the cream on, the nurse instructs the patient as to quantity.
