Botox is the most sought after cosmetic treatment around the world. But despite its popularity, there are people who are very suspicious about the procedure, because they are fearful that the injections are painful. But does botox hurt, or is it true that you don’t feel anything at all, as some physicians claim. Let’s find out.
Does Botox Hurt?
The reality is that all injections hurt in some way, but this is significantly minimized with botox, because a topical anesthetic cream is used to numb the area prior to treatment. In addition, a very small needle is used for the injection, and this helps to make the procedure relatively painless.
Some patients who’ve had botox say they feel a pinch which is often fleeting, but there have been no reports of people feeling severe pain. Patients that have treatment done by an experienced injector usually feel very little pain, or none at all in some cases.
