Electrolysis pain reduction?


#1

I had an hour long session today, took 4 paracetamol tablets 30m before session and it didn’t help one bit.

What are some popular methods for pain reduction during the procedure?

You may have access to numbing creams either by prescription or over-the-counter. The easiest to access is probably EMLA cream, though you may be able to find some more powerful stuff in your part of the world. If your electrologist works alongside a doctor or dentist, they may offer lignocaine or some other type of pain management. This will probably cost extra.

The easiest method is for your electrologist to use an insulated probe and reduce the intensity if she is not doing so already. This may be enough to see you through an hour long treatment.

Your first step is to speak with your electrologist about pain management.
