Botulinum Toxin Injection Pain Is Less with Smaller-Gauge Needles
By Will Boggs MD
NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Injection of botulinum toxin type A through 32-gauge needles is slightly less painful than injection through 30-gauge needles, according to a randomized trial.
Dermatologists routinely use 30-gauge needles for facial injections of neurotoxins, prepackaged fillers, and intralesional local anesthesia, but pain is still an issue even with these small-gauge needles.
