Botox Facts | Orange County

Does Botox hurt?

Botox is injected in very small amounts, just under the skin to reach the muscles that cause facial wrinkles. Because such small amounts are given and the facial skin is very thin, a very small needle is used. Dr. Joseph uses a 32-gauge needle, which is one of the smallest needles you’ll find. It is the size of a common acupuncture needle. That being said, the injections can sometimes be a bit sensitive for some people. In order to help with the discomfort, Dr. Joseph uses a topical anesthetic numbing cream and an ice compress to make your Botox treatment very comfortable and relaxing.

Is there a way to get Botox without shots or injections?

Botox smoothes wrinkles by blocking the nerve signal to the muscle that causes the wrinkle. In order to work, the Botox needs to get into the muscle. Injection is currently the only way to get Botox into a muscle. Botox is injected with a very small needle in very small amounts. If Botox is applied on top of the skin, the Botox molecule or protein cannot penetrate the skin to reach the muscle. There are currently clinical trials and new technology dedicated to a topical form of  botulinum toxin. Hopefully it will be available in the future.
