Botox and Dysport are injections, so they feel similar to getting a flu shot though at a much more superficial level and with much smaller needle. Pain generally is not associated with neurotoxin injections. For those with sensitivities or anxiety over injections, a topical numbing agent can be helpful. We also offer Pro-Nox for patients who want additional comfort, which is a self-administered blend of oxygen and nitrous analgesia.
Is the Botox process painful?
