Take These Steps to Reduce Painful Injections
Hello, dear reader, and welcome back to the New Beginnings Medical blog! If you have been keeping up with our previous posts, you are probably aware of the fact that we like to talk about our HCG diet plan. We truly believe that this diet method is one of the most effective available on the market today and, as a result, we enjoy talking about the benefits that this diet option offers. When discussing our dieting method with potential patients, one of the most common concerns that they express revolves around the pain they may feel from an HCG injection. While there is very little pain associated with these injections, we also understand that different people feel pain at different levels. To help alleviate any fears that people may have about these injections, we are going to use today’s post to go over some of the ways that you can make sure that your HCG injection is as painless as possible.
Leave the Pain Behind
When it comes to receiving injections, most people can agree that it is not exactly a fun experience. Stabbing yourself with a piece of metal is, inevitably, going to cause some discomfort. Luckily, the needles used for our HCG injections are some of the smallest on the market, greatly reducing the amount of pain that people feel when the receive injections. To make the pain even less noticeable, or completely disappear, we recommend the following steps be taken.
- Before administering an injection, take an ice cube and rub it against the area that you plan to administer the injection into. We recommend that you rub the ice along the area for around 1 – 2 minutes, or until the area begins to feel numb. Remove the ice cube and, as quickly as possible, administer the injection. Many people have found that using this method completely eliminates any pain that they may have felt from previous injections.
- After you have cleaned the injection site with an alcohol pad, use your thumb and index finger to gently pinch and hold about an inch of your skin where you plan to receive the injection. While pinching the skin, place the injection in the area between your thumb and index finger. Using this method helps to reduce the amount of pain associated with an injection because you are isolating the fat and skin that is receiving the injection.
- Once you have cleaned the syringe and injection site with an alcohol pad, gently poke the area that you plan to use as your injection site with the tip of the needle. Pain receptors in the human skin are not necessarily uniform and your goal with this method is to find a place where you barely feel the needle touching your skin. Once you have found the sweet spot, administer the injection and disinfect the injection site.
