Is Botox Injection Painful?

Most of us have heard of the term, “Botox”, or even the term “liquid facelift”. Some of you may have already had the treatment done, or are considering having the treatment performed. For those considering, I would like to share some information on just how exactly it is done, and why there is no need to worry about pain during a Botox injection.

Botox Cosmetic is just a brand name for an FDA approved compound that is injected into the muscles of a desired area to prevent the nerve endings from contracting. This ability to prevent muscle contraction results in less lines and wrinkles, producing a smoother looking surface.

The small size of the needle results in very minimal discomfort for most people. What’s great is that Botox injections can be done in as little as 10 minutes, and results can be seen for months after. This is what makes this procedure popular, because it can be done so quickly, and results in almost zero down time, unlike some other treatments available.
