WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING TREATMENT?

We first apply a specialized topical numbing cream to your hands prior to treatment. The injections themselves take approximately 10 to 20 minutes to perform. With our numbing cream and gentle technique, this treatment is virtually painless. After injecting the product, we massage the hands to ensure that it is properly distributed. Patients are instructed to avoid strenuous physical activity involving their hands for the following 24-48 hours after injections in order to minimize post-procedure swelling and tenderness.
