Discomfort is usually minimal and brief.
Botox injections are made with a superfine, 31 gauge needle. This type of needles is even smaller than one used for a diabetes injection or a TB test.
Prior to any injections, your licensed skin care professional may numb the area with a cold pack or topical anesthetic cream. The entire process takes approximately 10 minutes often with, no down time. The cold pack or anesthetic cream may even be administered after the treatment as well.
As you know, pain thresholds may vary from person to person. The minor discomfort may vary depending on the desired area being treated. Many Botox veterans find the treatment of the forehead and crow’s feet areas to be the easiest. Most of the time they rarely feel the injection. They have compared the treatment to a mosquito bite or a pin prick.
