I'm 49 and am very unhappy with the "turkey wattle" starting under my neck but didn't want a mini-facelift. Had the procedure this morning and was VERY nervous because of all the reviews on here about pain. I had one percocet and a shot in the arm, plus took my own Xanax for nerves. The procedure felt like pinpricks and it wasn't pleasant, but not unbearable either. The intensity only lasts a few seconds in each area, then stops til the next 'pass'. Dr. Pontell injected lidocaine in my forehead so that didn't hurt at all. I'm looking forward to seeing results - if I do I'd definitely do it again. I'd probably request a numbing cream next time, which my friend from CA had and her experience was easier.
