What can help with pain when getting Botox injections? One measure that San Diego expert injector, Dr. John Hilinski, uses to reduce pain associated with Botox and Dysport treatment is the vibrata device shown here. This is essentially a small vibrating tool that can be placed on the face during placement of the Botox or Dysport. By creating a buzzing sensation, this helps to distract your brain from the actual pain and discomfort of the Botox and Dysport needles. This relies on what is called the gate theory of pain – where your brain can only process one sensation at a time. If your brain senses more of the vibration from the vibrata, you will feel less pain associated with your Botox and Dysport treatments!
