Does Botox Hurt?
Botox is used for muscle twitching control, severe underarm sweating, and cosmetic makeovers. Excess muscle activity in the face can lead to wrinkles and fine line sin the long-term. Botox works by reducing the muscle activity and smoothening out the skin. Botox is injected through miniature injections and causes little to no pain.
A patient with sensitive skin might feel little pain when the botox is being injected, but the discomfort is short-lived and the pain will not last for long. The entire procedure takes about ten minutes. If you are afraid of injections, you may have the option to numb the area using a cold pack or anesthesia. There might also be slight bruising due to the usage of needles, but applying an ointment over that spot will heal it in no time.
