injection sites


Posted by Billie Lowe , Dec 04,2001,18:23   Archive
Could someone tell me what the reason is for not getting injections under your eye, close to your nose? I'm pretty sure that the doctor injects me there. I am getting my injections tomorrow, and was maybe going to ask her not to place one at that location. I thought I had seen this on the board before.

Thanks
Billie

Hi Billie

My doctor has never injected me there. I'm not really sure, but think it would affect the sinuses. It's also pretty tender at that site too.

Hi Billie,
I believe that is one of the areas that the doctors like to stay away from due to problems with tearing and sinus problems.
Good luck with your injections.

Yes, that spot is one of the more painful sites to inject into, but for some cases it's essential: that muscle is the main one that spasms for a lot of people, and you gotta shoot where it spasms. As far as pain goes, the upper brow is very sensitive and also gets a larger injection than some other spots. The upper mid-lid is not a good place to inject because it causes ptosis.
