Vibration Anesthesia Device: Wrinkle Filling Made Painless

No one likes needles… But for some, it is the price we pay for beauty. What can be done to diminish the discomfort that comes with needles used for Botox and Dermal  fillers? At Farber Plastic Surgery, Dr. Farber uses a new product that significantly  reduces the discomfort during procedures such asBotox, Dysport, Xeomin, Radiesse, Juvederm, Belotero, Perlane,Restylane, and Sculptra injections. It is the Vibration Anesthesia Device (V.A.D.). The V.A.D.  is very small and designed to fit right into the palm of the doctor’s hand. It is specifically designed for management of pain.

What Is the Vibration Anesthesia Device?

The Vibration Anesthesia Device (V.A.D.) is a device that helps alleviate patient discomfort. Dr. Farber understands his patients desire to minimize the signs or aging and look their best. However, he also understands that many of his patients want to minimize the discomfort during these procedures. Dr. Farber is constantly staying up-to-date with the latest research and developments in order to bring the best care and treatment to his patients.  The vibrational anesthesia device is on example of how Farber Plastic Surgery sets itself apart.

How Does It Make Wrinkle Filling Painless?

The vibrational anesthesia device utilizes  the “Gate Theory of Pain.” The theory states that when the body encounters two different stimuli,  the brain does not know which stimuli to detect. When a stimulus is applied such as the V.A.D, it causes the body to feel a mild vibration on the skin. At the same time, stimuli such as a needle insertion   but the pain signal to the brain is greatly reduced. And so with this vibration pulsing, the patient feels much less discomfort with injections.

The experience for the patient feels like a tiny vibration on the skin that tricks the brain, asking if you are feeling pleasure or pain? With this device, the body can’t detect the difference.

What Anti-Aging Procedures Is It Used For?
