I had read the reviews of the procedure and was looking forward to getting the treatment yesterday. Some folks said it was painful and some not so much. My anxiety level began to rise when the practitioner started pushing Vicodin prior to the procedure. I declined opting rather for ibuprofin. When I was offered two squeeze balls and told I might need them, I started having second thoughts about the vicodin. By the time the procedure was halfway through I would have handed over my debit card and pin number is she had asked for it. I don't want to scare anyone from the procedure because I already feel that the result will be worth it. But be forwarned, if you don't have a fleshy face, it is very painful. Take the vicodin. Take two.
