Apply some ice over the part of the skin receiving the Botox injection. This will numb the skin portion and make the injection pain bearable for you.
Use Dr. Numb topical anesthetic cream before the treatment starts for long-lasting numbness. You can rub the numbing cream gently over the area around one hour before the treatment. The numbing effect of Dr numb cream lasts for around 3-4 hours which is good enough to keep you off the excessive pain.
