While most folks would say that in general, BOTOX® doesn’t hurt, everybody reacts to discomfort differently. What one person describes as a “tickle,” someone else may think of as a “sharp pain.” What one person feels every second of may not even phase someone else. Does BOTOX® hurt? It really depends on you.

What We Use

Our BOTOX® injections are administered using very fine, high-quality needles. Also, our providers are extensively trained and experienced in managing injectable treatments.

You may feel slight pinches with some sticks, or you may not feel anything at all. Sensitivity depends on you and the injection site. 

Our high-quality tools and extensive experience help to reduce discomfort. Numbing agents can also be used if you are worried about pain.

After BOTOX®

The targeted area may have slight bruising or minor bleeding after treatment. It may also be a little red. You may begin to notice results a few days after treatment when the muscles in the treated area relax.

Tackling Anticipation

The anticipation of possible discomfort is often the most challenging obstacle for some patients. As a first-time client, you are likely contemplating a lot of “what if” scenarios. The best way to tackle pre-procedure jitters is to discuss them with your provider.

You may find yourself wondering, “Oh my, does BOTOX® hurt?” Ask this question during your initial consultation. It will tip off your provider to your concerns early on, and don’t worry! It is very common for patients to worry about pain and discomfort. In many cases, the anticipation is the worst. Work with a trusted BOTOX® clinic such as Dermacare of Hampton Roads and reap the rewards of a professional treatment.
