I recently had a fractoral laser treatment and the treatment was very painful. Any suggestions?

There can be discomfort with Fractora or any other RF needling system. The key to comfort during an RF system is the following:
-Powerful topical treatment- Powerful topical treatments may take up to 45 minutes to effectively numb the skin and can make the treatment tolerable
-Local anesthetic- Nerve blocks and local anesthetics can make the procedure better for patients with low pain thresholds and patients using higher energy
-Oral pain medication- Oral pain medication and relaxation medications can make the procedure even more tolerable.
-Cooling- A zimmer chiller or other cooling mechanism can be used to make the patient more comfortable as well.
Numbing cream hour before Fractora
All the best
