Is the procedure painful?

Injections may cause some discomfort during and after the injection. At Dr Lisa Fay’s Rooms will use a fine needle to ensure your comfort.

How long will it take to start working?

The treatment usually takes a few days to start working, and patients will begin to notice a small improvement after a day or two, with the full effect within 7-14 days.

Can I go back to work?

Yes, you can go back to work after the procedure, but your doctor will probably suggest that you avoid exercise or overstimulation for a day or two.

What are the possible side effects and complications?

  • Tenderness or bruising at the injection site may occur
  • Transient headaches may occur
  • Flu like symptoms may occur which are usually mild and subside in a few days
