How is a botulinum toxin injection performed?
Botox is administered as an injection to select areas to cause the desired effects. The injection is made using a fine needle, often just under the skin to reach superficial muscles. When performed for cosmetic reasons, it is commonly done in the medical clinics and does not need an anaesthetic. However, when it is used for other medical reasons, it is often done as part of another procedure, which may need an anaesthetic. Your doctor can discuss the exact situation which suits your condition.
