I Am Getting Laser Above my Mouth and Under my Eye- How Painful?

I am getting laser done under they eyes and for smoker lines above the mouth. I have chose to just have local only. They will inject the eye area, and inside the mouth to numb the areas up. My only concern is the area above the mouth because the injection will go up under my upper lips. How painful is this? Thank you!

Injections from the inside of the mouth is not very painful.

If there is good technique employed with the intraoral injection, I rarely have complaints of pain from the patients.  Some will complain, but usually much less than going through the skin.
