How Much Pain Will I Have?
Pain tolerance varies for everyone, but rest assured that any areas to be worked on take quite well to topical numbing (lidocaine and tetracaine) for most people. Heavy duty prescription pain medication is definitely not necessary, however it is fine to take an OTC pain reliever/anti-inflammatory (like Motrin) prior to your procedure if you feel that might help.
Any discomfort – if at all – should not only be minimal but also short-lasting as most procedures take 30 minutes or less to complete. This is not anything like childbirth, surgery, or any of the numerous other rejuvenation procedures such as laser and inject-able fillers. You can do it.
