I am terrified of needles but I still want to pursue Botox injections. I think that is the best way to treat my frown lines from what I have read online. Do the injections hurt? If so, is there any topical anesthetic that you can give me so that they don’t?
Needle phobia has a large mental or psychological component. You have to work through that fear. The botox injections are very tolerable and quick. The technique of the plastic surgeon or dermatologist is important. Topical numbing creams like 5% LMX are available to reduce the discomfort.
