In brief: About the same

The needles used to inject Insulin are so small these days that patients do well with both the pen device or needle/syringe method.

In brief: Pen Injector

Pen injectors with the new 4mm bd needle are less painful than utilizing syringes.
I find that slow injection technique helps, especially with evening Lantus (insulin glargine) dosing.
