Hi Jlb, numbness can take place and can be prolonged in some cases. However, in our cases, it is not extensive like in your case or prolonged. It only lasts in most cases till the effects of anesthesia last. Pain, tingling and burning should also be not that prolonged. You can take non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs for pain, a multivitamin containing especially B-complex. You can get in touch with us. We can advise you much better after seeing your before / after photos on direct message. All the best !
