I am getting my 2nd laser treatment (with Cool Glide 1064 YAG) for my back. The first one really hurt (I belive levels were between 40-50).
The technician recommended an over the counter cream, Maxilene, that they would supply (for a nominal fee of course) that would help de-sensitise and numb the area.
Are there any concerns i should be worried about with using creams of this nature? I am worried - the area would be so numb, that I wouldnt be able to tell the technician if she is burning me and that she wouldnt know either. Is there anything i should watch out for? please help
