People new to Botox® injections often worry about the impending pain they think they are about to experience. Over-exaggerated, mammoth-sized needles of TV and film usually cross their minds.

Horror ensues.

But! I am here to tell you that the needles Skin by Lovely™ uses for Botox® injections are the same used for Insulin injections. ‘Miniscule’ isn’t even an appropriate term to describe how small the needle point is. Not only can I assure you of that, but I can also provide you with the following list of things that most certainly hurt worse than getting Botox®.

  • Break ups (is there anything worse?!)
  • Brain freeze from the ice cream you have been inhaling post break up
  • Papercuts
  • Brow waxing
  • Being caught taking a selfie in public
  • Waving back to someone only to find out that they were waving to the person behind you (Don’t lie. This has happened to you.)
  • Buying an outfit, only to see it go on major sale the following day
  • Stubbing your toe
  • Getting your car washed- just in time for mother-nature to unleash a rare and massive downpour over the city of Los Angeles the very next day
  • When family members corner you about when you are going to get married
  • When the same family members corner you about when you are going to have babies and then go on to reference your ‘baby-birthing hips’ ( crawls..)
  • Receiving a speeding ticket, on top of running late to work/an event/anything
  • Falling (ungracefully) in public
  • Losing a favorite article of clothing (But you JUST had it!)
  • Chipping a nail after getting an over-priced manicure
  • When you meant to swipe right but swiped left
  • When the grocery store is out of antibacterial cart wipes
  • Uncontrollable crying
  • Uncomfortable silence
  • Monday mornings
  • Spilling coffee on a white shirt
  • Slamming your finger in a door
  • Not getting enough sleep
  • Making a joke, and no one laughing (tough crowd..)
  • Lists

As you can see, SO many things hurt worse than getting Botox®.  And this is hardly an inclusive list!
