STRONG pain relievers?

What are some good things to take to majorly reduce the pain. I’m getting treatments with the GentleLase Plus and let me tell you it is SO painful. I read how all of these women say it doesn’t hurt very much, but when you have deep down, dark hair it hurts much more than even getting a tattoo. It really can be excrutiating. I’m thinking about telling my tech jack the Jules way up too, so I need something that will make it bearable. They use topical creme or something that is supposed to numb it a tad, and I took like 4 motrin’s last time but I still felt an enormus amount of pain.
