I went in for my co2 laser treatment today. I arrived at 930 and they prepped me with the numbing cream. Soon after they injected 6 shots of lidocaine. Previously I had taking 2 antianxiety pills and 2 narcotics. The procedure was rather quick and the pain was not horrible. If you have ever had a tattoo, that's what it feels like to me. I was expecting burning and such. I did smell the skin ewww! I will post tomorrow.

They prepped me with numbing cream as well, which did not work. I did not get any lidocaine, so I felt everything. It was horrible! I love results but it did hurt. Glad your procedure was easier. Pics please :-)
