In minor surgery it is common place to use lignocaine with adrenaline as this helps minimise any bleeding during the surgery. Very rarely people can feel their heart race or feel a bit faint which passes in a few minutes. This used frequently by dentists so if you have not had a reaction when a having any tooth treatments then you are unlikely to have any issues. Agaiin this is why is it important to have a thorough medical consultation and any local anaesthetic injected in a medical setting.

Anaesthetic injections are also available without adrenaline and are used for surgery on the fingers and toes as well as for anyone who is sensitive to adrenaline. Most anaesthetics work within 1-2 minutes and last for 1-3 hours.

Anaesthetic creams such as EMLA are also available for less invasive skin treatments and provide a good numbing effect.

All our doctors will discuss your best options for you to ensure the most comfortable procedure possible.

Really pleased with my experience from start to finish. I went for a procedure three days ago at the Bristol clinic. The receptionist was quick to call me back when I enquired about an appointment, and booked me in quickly. The waiting room was more like a visit to one of William the third's apartments at Hampton Court Palace. The really kind and friendly nurse helped to put me at ease before and during the procedure and made the experience less terrifying (I was very nervous)! And Dr Rhys Stevens also put made me feel relaxed and did a really good job, and pain free procedure. I'm very pleased with the results. Thank you!

I had been shopping around to have some Facial Thread Vein work done and was feeling unsure about it. I had concerns due to my lack of knowledge about the procedure as I have never had anything like this done before. All the other places I contacted were not so helpful and just booked me in for a consultation. However I spoke to Helen at Cosmedics on the telephone and found her helpful and informative. She listened to my concerns and even offered suggestions. It is rare these days to receive a high level of friendly customer service but on this day I did receive it. I have since had the work done and happy so far as I only had it done two days ago. However my big thanks is to Helen for putting me in the right direction. Thanks Helen!
