5: Is Botox Treatment Painful?
This is the fifth installment of 12 Things You Need to Know About Botox and Aesthetics
The minor discomfort of a Botox injection is minimal and brief.
Prior to your treatment, your skin can be numbed with a cold pack or topical anesthetic cream. These easy, simple pain-relievers can be used both prior to and just after your Botox injection.
But some Botox veterans will tell you – it’s so easy, they don’t need any pain relief at all!
The discomfort will vary from person to person… and can also vary depending on the area of the face being treated. Many people find that treatment on the forehead and the crow’s feet area around the eyes is the easiest… in some cases, the injection is barely perceptible.
Botox is injected with a superfine, 31 gauge needle – that’s even smaller than a needle for a TB test or diabetes injection.
The entire process can take as little as 10 minutes.
Most Botox newbies are surprised by how painless it is.
People who have already had Botox treatments report that the feeling is similar to a mosquito bite or a a pin prick. The pain is comparable to – or less than – a threading or waxing treatment.
