I am a 41 year old female, extensive post inflammatory hyperpigmentation and also photo aged skin from years in a tanning bed.
My first treatment was very uncomfortable and torture at times. The second treatment, about a month later, I told the nurse that I wanted extra numbing cream. (which I don't think she gave me) After she left the room, I smeared another big glob onto my face including my lips and right up to my eyes. When that dried, I did it once more.
After 60 minutes, the technician (who had no idea how much numbing cream I had used) did the treatment and I virtually felt nothing. It never hurt enough that I jerked away. Too much numbing cream can be dangerous, but for me it was the best decision I ever made. Fraxel shouldn't have to be torture. : )
