I’ve used the Diode, for which topical anesthesia is highly recommended, and the alexandrite Gentle Laze, which sprays a cryogen mist over your skin before each zap, which freezes it and thus numbs it.
The cryogen mist was such a blessing; no more rubbing nasty numbing medicine and waiting at least an hour for it to take effect, while wrapped in plastic.
Does the Aurora require any anesthetics? Or does it also freeze/numb the skin?
The diode had a “cool tip” but still hurt incredibly, unless you used anesthetics. They cryogen emitted from the Gentel laze made it virtually PAINLESS-- no exageration. It was relaxing!
