How to give a subcutaneous injection?


  • Do not inject in the exact same spot each week, but it's fine to inject in the same general area.
  • If you have had liposuction before, it's okay to inject in that area. 
  • Do not inject in an area that has recently undergone a procedure.
  • You do not necessarily need to pinch the tissue before injection, but you can if you prefer.
  • If you have had a recent immunization, try to avoid giving your injection at the same site, but it's okay if it happens accidentally.
