    I did my first injection 3 weeks ago and didn’t go in deep enough seeing as the needles were too small, I’ve since changed and had no problems, but my question is was that first week a write off as I didn’t go into the muscle? Or will it have still sunk into the muscle?

    Was 1 inch to start, moved to a 1.5 now and much better, was sitting under the skin from not going deep enough

    Where did you inject? I’ve never used anything but 1” blues or 5/8” orange

    It's fine
    You can inject small amounts with a slin pin or even sub q, it will get absorbed by the body

    In the glute, yeah was using oranges to start, cool as long as it still absorbed in and wasn’t wasted

    Why did you think the oil didn't go in deep enough?

    What is your BF%?

    Mainly because of the oil sitting under the skin and taking a week to settle, probably 15% - 20% roughly

    So you have over 1" of subcutaneous fat on glutes?

    Well no but I wasn’t putting the whole needle in, probably only half

    They used to always say leave some out in case you snap the needle. I think you’d have to be particularly gifted to do that

    concerned my needle was too short,
    so just to be sure I only pushed half of it in.

    You are injecting fat into fat, it's not going to absorb instantly

    Did you just smash the plunger all the way down too?
