Managing Pain From Lasers

Recommended Posts

I need some help dealing with the pain associated with laser treatments. I have had two ematrix treatments which were excruciating even with numbing cream and the nitrous gas.. maybe I have sensitive skin (have been on accutane a few times) or maybe I'm just a bitch either way I need some advice on what medications work best at blocking the pain. Im asking as I will be getting fraxel repair which is apparently going to be a lot worse!

Will be posting pics of everything when I get the photos from the Dr

the only thing you can take prior to treatments is tylenol which really doesnt do that much. i can feel your pain though i have had a few laser treatments and the fraxel restore was like the most painful thing ever. it was like a hot blowtorch scraping your face! i am going back again on february 9th and the lady said this time to take some tylenol beforehand because its going to hurt a lot more than last time. blah! i am dreading it but hoping that it helps my raised scars.

good luck to you!
