I had this treatment done to my face, arms, the back of my hands, chest, and under-arms. My pre-treatment involved the application of lidocaine cream to all the areas being treated. When the laser was engaged, it felt like a bee sting.
My post-treatment discomfort was moderate and lasted for about 2 hours. All the areas treated lightly scabbed over and sloughed off after about 2 weeks. My results were excellent. All of the little strawberry bumps and small broken veins on my face are gone. The sun spots on my arms, chest, and the back of my hands are gone. So far, (6 weeks post treatment) I have not had any regrowth of the hair under my arms.
