In brief: Call Your Dentist

Your dentist is the expert in numbing the face with local anesthesia.
You should call them and discuss the possibility of coordinating your electrolysis appointment with a visit to him/her prior to numb you up. There is usually a small fee charged but you will be totally comfortable for an hour or so after the injection, so the electrolysis person can do a better job.
