To assess which injection route caused more pain for the women Martensson, Nyberg and Wallin, (2000) investigated, in a double blind study, two injection routes: intracutaneous or subcutaneous.
This is supported by Martensson & Wallin (1999) who found that 89% of women having had intracutaneous injections in their study would be willing to use the technique again compared to 81% in the subcutaneous group.

The tests took more than four weeks and included cytotoxicity, intracutaneous reactivity, systemic toxicity and hemolysis (dynamic and static).
Additionally, these Parylenes have been subjected to an array of ISO-10993 biological evaluations, including acute systemic toxicity, intracutaneous reactivity, cytotoxicity, sensitization, hemocompatibility and implantation (2, 12 and 26 weeks).
Two of the parylenes are certified to comply with USP biological testing requirements for Classification VI, including Acute Systemic Toxicity, Intracutaneous Toxicity and Implantation.
