Although injectables such as Botox and dermal fillers have made cosmetic treatments much easier for patients, the needles used in these treatments can still cause pain and discomfort. Traditional local anesthetic creams on the injection site can take over half an hour to take effect, but Louisville, KY-based BellaNovus claims that its new line of Ouchless Needle devices will solve this problem while also minimizing post-procedure numbness.
The Ouchless Needle is a small disposable device which numbs the injection site by simultaneously cooling the surrounding skin.
From the product page:
This patent pending Ouchless™ Needle is a disposable syringe-attachable dispenser that delivers a precise stream of numbing vapocoolant to the skin just ahead of the tip of the needle just before the skin is pierced, and does not leave patients with post injection numbness.
The Ouchless™ Needle is designed to work ergo-nomically with a syringe and can be used by either right or left handed practitioners for single hand injection.
