Whether or not you feel pain during the procedure depends on you as well as the area that is being treated. Sensitivity may vary depending on the individual and the location of the treatment.
- It is possible to avoid discomfort altogether with a physician prescribed local anesthetic called EMLA Cream. This is a topical lotion that helps to numb your skin and can make the experience more comfortable. Applying ice to the treated area can also relieve pain.
