I had it done in BKK. They applied EMLA cream on my Face and Neck and left it on for 90 minutes before starting the procedure. That was a mistake right there. I have a very high pain tolerance. When they started on my face, I would rate it a 3-6/10 on pain scale. But when they started to work on my chin and neck, it was 8-10/10. Yes, the EMLA cream has worn off.
Lesson Learned: The procedure should start 30 minutes after the EMLA Cream is applied.
Yes I STRONGLY Recommend EMLA cream on your face and neck.
I think you will have a better experience.
But Remember , this Procedure is NOT Pain Free.
"No Pain No Gain".
