Are BOTOX® injections painful?

When Botox is applied by an expert injector, like Dr. Hernandez, it is injected carefully and gently. The injection may feel like a slight pinch or a momentary sting. If you are concerned about discomfort, Dr. Hernandez can apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.
