Prior to performing an acute ingrown toenail procedure an injection of local anesthesia must be given into the digit. This injection is uncomfortable due to a burning sensation that is felt. We limit this discomfort with a topical refrigerant that is sprayed onto the toe prior to the injection. After the digit is numb from the anesthesia all you will feel is the touching and pressure of the procedure, not pain.
