We want you to be completely comfortable during your treatment. We apply a topical numbing agent prior to the procedure. We frequently check-in with you before and during the treatment to ensure any discomfort is being managed appropriately. This procedure should not cause any pain, but the degree of tolerance varies from person to person, with heavy smokers in particular being a little extra sensitive. This procedure should not hurt and discomfort should not rate more than a 2 out of 10, if that.
