I had botox injections slightly more painful than usual a 27 gauge needle used instead of 32. Is this ok ? Both same length and 32 looked slightly thicker

Gauge of Needle Used for Botox Injection

Hi and thank you for your question! While the gauge of needle has little bearing on the results of the Botox treatment, going with lower gauge (i.e. thinker needle) causes unnecessary discomfort and increased risk of bruising, so Botox injection should be done with the finest needle possible. I hope it helps and good luck!
