If you’ve got an appointment for Botox in Vienna you may be anxious about what to expect, particularly if it is going to be a painful process.
In fact, one of the reasons stopping many patients from experiencing the joys of Botox is due to a fear of pain from needles.
Here’s what you need to know before your treatment session.
How Does Botox Work?
First, it is important to understand how Botox works.
Botox is an injectable treatment that is directly inserted into the muscle on the face that causes wrinkles to form.
Once the muscle has been relaxed, the wrinkle is released which leaves the patient with smoother, wrinkle-free skin.
How Big is the Botox Needle?
Botox needles are among some of the smallest needles you will ever encounter which makes for a generally painless session.
Does Botox Hurt?
You will likely feel a slight stinging sensation during your injections. However, this can be managed by asking your doctor to apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment area or to use an ice pack to counteract that sensation.
An expert injector with years of experience will be well equipped to make your treatment experience as comfortable as possible.
Does Botox Hurt Afterwards?
You should not be in any pain following your treatment, particularly if a topical numbing cream had been applied.
If you are experiencing any pain please contact your doctor to assess the situation for possible unwanted side effects.
