Does it hurt to have Botox injected into your armpits?
The short answer is, not really. Botox injections in general are one using a tiny micro-needle, which helps minimize any pain associated with the treatment. What’s more, Dr. Langdon mixes the Botox with a local anesthetic solution, which results in a nearly painless treatment.
Fortunately, patients who may be afraid of needles often feel more confident about using Botox, in the underarm area, as it’s not being injected directly into the face. Many patients have compared the needle injections to the feeling of experiencing a mosquito bite. Therefore, if you’ve spent summers outside without bug spray, you can definitely handle Botox injections in your armpits!
