    Switch Needle Size?

    I HAVE NOTICED THAT I THINK I HAVE DEVELOPED EITHER SCAR TISSUE OR TOUGHENING OF THE AREA IN SOME OF THE PLACES THAT I INJECT..I CURRENTLY USE A 22GAUGE 1 1/2 INCH NEEDLE...SHOULD I SWITCH TO A 21 GAUGE 1 1/2 INCH NEEDLE?

    and you do realize that a 21g is larger than a 22g. Maybe you should try a 23g for glutes, and a 25g for everywhere else. Also, make sure to have the needle steady while inside.

    Smaller needle number = larger size.
    Larger needle = bigger hole in you and more scar tissue
    Larger needle = faster injection (which is NOT a good idea)

    As Vette said, most people stick to 23ga for glutes and 25ga everywhere else.
