Is there Botox pain in injection?

Will getting Botox hurt or leave any permanent marks? I’m thinking about getting injections for crow’s feet.

People going in for Botox will feel a slight pinch similar to a flu shot.  If you feel you cant handle this then you should request a topical anesthesia.  But, keep in mind that Botox needles are extremely thin and while there are local anesthetic injections available, it turns out those are much more painful than the Botox needle.  If the Botox injection is not injected properly there are increased chances of light bruising that will stay for over a week. Keep in mind it’s not the Botox that is causing the bruise, but rather it's the doctor administering the shot.
