How painful are anti-wrinkle injections? A patient study

crows feet units

Method: 21 patients who had never had anti-wrinkle injections before were questioned on how painful they thought the procedure would be. Patients were asked to give the discomfort a score out of 10 before the treatment and again afterwards. Patients were treated in either crows feet, forehead or frown lines (glabella). Ice was used to numb the skin before injection and 31g needles were used for treatment

Results: The average pain score before treatment was 5.48 and the average after treatment was 3.90

Conclusion: The results show that, for patients having anti-wrinkle injections for the first time, injections are less painful than patients expected
