Local Anesthetic Toxicity

Can you get anesthetic toxicity from having local injected under both eyes and inside mouth of upper lip, so laser can be done under eyes and above mouth? Is that too much injection at one time?

Local anesthetic is safe in the mouth and under the eyes

I have personally injected to these areas and more in one sitting, and if calculated carefully with safe concentrations of lidocaine, this can be done very safely to areas in one sitting.
