Question on mole removal on face.

Hi Lori, I just had a mole removed from the side of my nose last Friday (3/18). It was located right in the crease. My question is this - is there something that could have been used to numb the area before I was injected with the novicane? I had to have, I believe, 5 shots of novicane in and around the area, which was very painful. I have a couple more small moles on my face which I would like to have removed, but not if they can't be "frozen" first before the injection of novicane. Is this possible? Thank you, Ilene
