Inhaled Pain Relief Now Available

Stephen Wassall

Skin Integrity is pleased to announce that inhaled medication is now available to assist with pain relief during cosmetic procedures.  The inhaled analgesic (similar to happy gas) that can make procedures such as dermal fillers, anti-wrinkle injections, chemical peels and photodynamic therapy considerably more comfortable. 

The inhaled medication consists of a hand held device that has been used in Australia for more than thirty years and is often used by ambulances.  It provides strong pain relief. The client is in control of the device, therefore feeling more comfortable. It is safe and can be used in most situations.

It has a rapid onset of action and is short lasting.  After a short period of observation (generally around 30 minutes) most clients are able to drive home.  Understandably, many clients are anxious about needles or pain during procedures.  Inhaled analgesia is an excellent option to help these clients tolerate their procedure.  Other modalities used at Skin Integrity for pain relief include ice, local anaesthetic cream and nerve blocks.

The cost of this medication is $50 in addition to the procedure cost.  It can only be administered under medical supervision.
