Buzzy® Helps for Dermatology

Botox®
Cosmetic Injections Botox® is a versatile injectable, used for everything from wrinkle-reducing aesthetic procedures to migraine treatment. Injected into the muscles in the affected areas, this treatment can range from mildly uncomfortable to very painful. Buzzy® Helps with this injection pain. Buzzy’s patented combination of vibrator and ice pack are FDA-cleared for cosmetic injections, as Buzzy® has been clinically proven effective at reducing pain for needle procedures and injections. See video here of Buzzy being used for Mrs. Universe’s Botox®!

Cosmetic InjectionsFor hyperhydrosis injection pain from Botox, place Buzzy® on the site to pre-numb for 15-30 seconds. During the procedure, place Buzzy® between the brain and the pain. On the palm, pre-numb, then slide Buzzy toward the wrist for the injection.

On the face, press Buzzy® to the bone nearest the injection for best pain relief. The dermatome for the forehead comes downward straight from the scalp line, so place buzzy between the hairline and the injection. Make sure the bottom of Buzzy® is pointing toward the needle or device with the switch end pointing away. Buzzy® Mini has an indentation on the bottom end, showing to “put the shot near the dot.”

For Botox in spasmed muscles for Cerebral Palsy, pre-numb 30- 60 seconds then slide proximally in the same dermatome. This is being formally studied. Buzzy has been shown to be effective for children with cognitive impairments.

Electrolysis
Modern electrolysis devices destroy the growth center of the hair with chemical or heat energy. After a very fine probe is inserted into the hair follicle, the hair is removed with tweezers. Most areas of the body can be treated with electrolysis and the process can be uncomfortable and painful. Numbing creams take 20 to 60 minutes to work or can be messy, or rarely cause toxicity when on too much surface area. Buzzy’s cold and vibration help naturally decrease pain, as seen in this video.

On the face, press Buzzy® to the bone nearest the injection for best pain relief. Make sure the bottom of Buzzy® is pointing toward the needle or device with the switch end pointing away. Cold and ice work best in areas where there is one nerve pathway, or dermatome. In areas like the bikini, there are too many overlapping nerves, so focusing on vibration sensations while holding Buzzy® on the chest as pure distraction may work best for the most delicate areas to be treated.

Laser Procedures
Lasers can permanently reduce or remove unwanted hair. Laser procedures are increasingly used for skin resurfacing. For many, laser treatment can be associated with a stinging sensation. Buzzy’s patented combination of vibrator and ice pack can help reduce the pain.

Tattoo Application
Tattoo

Even the most eager tattoo enthusiast will agree that getting a tattoo hurts! Cold and vibration have been proven to naturally decrease pain for waxing, tattoos, and laser procedures.

Place Buzzy® on the site to pre-numb for 30-60 seconds. During the procedure, place Buzzy® between the brain and the pain. Make sure the bottom of Buzzy® is pointing toward the needle with the switch end pointing away.


Tattoo Removal
Unwanted body art? Laser tattoo removal techniques can eliminate tattoos by breaking up the pigment colors of the design with a high-intensity light beam. The removal process can be painful and Buzzy® can help. Place Buzzy® on the site to pre-numb for 30-60 seconds. During the procedure, place Buzzy® between the brain and the pain. Make sure the bottom of Buzzy® is pointing toward the needle with the switch end pointing away. Buzzy® Mini has an indentation on the bottom end, showing to “put the shot near the dot.”

Warts & Cryotherapy
For common warts in adults and older children, cryotherapy (freezing) and injection of an irritant are the most common treatments. Buzzy® can help with the pain associated with cryotherapy and wart removal.Place Buzzy® “Between the brain and the pain” proximal to the area of freezing. Because cold will be used, there is no need to wait 30 seconds, simply place the vibrating Buzzy® with or without cold packs proximally. Note: If you are accustomed to patients reacting to pain as a sign to stop spraying, be aware that the pain relief may blunt their reaction.
