Anesthesia for mole removal

Reading Time: <1 minuteMany patients come to our clinic requesting mole removal.In addition to the scar after mole removal, everyone is concerned about the pain during treatment and the pain of anesthesia.For mole removal, a local anesthetic is administered.In particular, men are more vulnerable to pain than women, so we manufacture local anesthetics in-house to reduce pain during anesthesia as much as possible.Generally, the local anesthetic is performed by injecting a drug called lidocaine hydrochloride, which is called xylocaine, into the mole removal site with a syringe.Most of the concentrations of xylocaine used in cosmetic surgery are XNUMX%, XNUMX%, and XNUMX%. It seems that the pain caused by the local anesthetic is very strong.At our hospital, we adjust the concentration of xylocaine, which contains a vasoconstrictor called epirenamin, to be diluted to about XNUMX%.The local anesthetic is adjusted to be neutral so that the pH of the local anesthetic is close to the pH of the living body by mixing Meiron, a bicarbonate with an alkaline pH.This greatly reduces pain during local anesthesia.Unfortunately, the knowledge of how to adjust local anesthetics is still not widespread among many cosmetic surgeons.All the cosmetic surgeons and cosmetic dermatologists I have instructed do not use local anesthetics as they are, but use Meiron to adjust the pH and dilute the concentration.Also, the thicker the injection needle, the more painful it will be when it penetrates the skin.Anesthesia is performed using ultra-thin needles of XNUMXG to XNUMXG depending on the area, so pain is significantly reduced compared to receiving local anesthesia with normal thick needles.It is also important in medical practice to consider the anesthesia method and drugs used during the procedure.Self-funded medical treatment requires advanced knowledge, skills, and delicate consideration.When removing moles for cosmetic purposes, we believe that it is essential for patients to receive the best cosmetic medical services.If you are still afraid of injecting anesthetic into your face, use a small medical vibrator or vibration oscillator that vibrates at a high speed and bring it into contact with the skin near the injection site to cause pain. Special anesthetic techniques can be performed to lower the threshold.
