How painful is Botox?
pain or discomfort
I had an occasion to receive botox injections and restylane (though I was a bit apprehensive we all have fear of the unknown no matter how high our pain tolerance level is) I was rather anxious to do so and arrived early just so I would not miss the chance to plump up my lips ..
As it turns out ,I could have stayed home saved my money and just taken a hot serrated knife and sliced my lip with it..
I had been told it felt like a bee sting...WRONG!! I wasn't concerned that the pain would be more then I could bear ,such a slight needle nothing to be alarmed about..I had several root canals in my time and of course child birth as well..I once had my wisdom teeth pulled..I was expecting a little bit of pain..
However..it feels to me..my own opinion of course,that someone had snagged my upper lip with a fish hook and then tried to embed it further,changed their mind and decided to just work it out of my lip in a zig zag motion.Why did I feel like I didn't need the topical that would numb the pain somewhat? What was I thinking?
Excruciating pain ? No not really. Discomfort A lot more then that I would say as for real pain...well lets just say I think it could be right up there with the best of tools used for torture..
But in truth my wallet hurt me the most !!!
