Your comfort matters to us!
At ArtMed we offer a wide range of injectable and laser services. We understand that these treatments can sometimes be painful or difficult to tolerate. In order to ensure the most comfortable treatments possible we offer the following complimentary options:
Topical numbing –
Prior to interventional laser treatments, micro-needling and dermal filler injection we numb the skin with topical cream or ointment numbing agents. These highly effective custom-compounded prescription numbing agents are only available by prescription to physicians.
Injectable numbing –
For removal of moles and skin tags, or localized deep laser resurfacing we use injectable prescription anesthetic.
ArtMed also offers inhaled Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas). This service is complementary for patients undertaking invasive laser treatments such as Halo® or Profrac®, and for RF treatments like Thermage®. It can also be made available for use in other services for a small charge. With ProNox®, you are safe to drive within 10 minutes after use.
Distraction Options –
At ArtMed we provide vibrational tools, cold packs, squeeze balls, video screens and other forms of distraction to help take your mind off your treatment. Distraction is medically proven to reduce the brain’s perception of pain.
Topical Numbing for Purchase –
ArtMed also sells Zensa 5% xylocaine numbing cream. This product can be applied at home to pre-numb the skin in sensitive areas prior to in-clinic procedures such at Botox injection or sensitive laser hair removal areas. Far more economical that EMLA, Zensa is vegan and steroid-free, shas a bio-friendly pH so it safe to apply in the most sensitive area and it formulated with Vitamin E which acts as an antiinflammatory. Numbing is effective for 2-3 hours.
