I went to a Laser surgeon for the removal of some broken veins in my face. He saw that I had had surgery and we discussed my disorder. I knew his clinic did botox for cosmetic reasons but he showed me pictures of a new patient that he treated with botox for Bells Palsy. It was a remarkable improvement. I said I knew all about the botox and said how much they hurt. He said that they should not hurt and that he uses the very tiniest of needles. I think he said 32 guage. Does that sound right? If that is the case no wonder people are using it for the wrinkles. He also said that there is a better product called Emla Max. It has been on the market about 8 months and you apply it about 20 minutes before the injections. I know that my last round of botox did not hurt as much. I had a different doctor than before and he changed needles half way through.
This doctor also informed me that he is the teaching rep in Western canada for Alergan. I am now wondering if I should give him a try for
the botox in June. Any opinions?
