So before I place an order for the needles and get stuck with a bunch that suck, I want to make sure I'm not making a mistake with the gauge and length. I'm not exactly fond of needles(who is? lol) and the higher the gauge and the shorter the needle the less bothersome I would think it would make the experience. It seems 29g 1cc 1/2 inch is used standard, so would I be mistaken in thinking a 31g .5cc 3/16 would be better for example? 1. Regarding gauge, would it possibly be a better idea to go with a traditional 29g because a 31g or 32g will cause the injection to take forever? Maybe there's not much pain/scarring difference? 2. Regarding length, any advantages/disadvantages of 3/16 vs longer options? Only thing I can find is you don't have to pinch the skin with the 3/16, but I probably would want to anyway. That and I would think it would again cause less scar tissue. 3. If I'm not planning to do more than 3 iu in one shot, then I would think it to be better to use no more than .5cc, possibly even the .3cc syringe to keep maximum hydraulic pressure? 4. What about brands? I know BD is generally good but is twice the price of Easy Touch. Is it worth the price? Thanks for all you help and guidance, it's very much appreciated.
