This session went pretty much the same as the last. I was instructed to numb the area with an ice pack for about five minutes before I went into the room with the laser. There the technician numbed the area again with dry ice. Afterwards, she proceeded to test a small area with the laser to see how much she could turn up the frequency this time. The pain was a tad bit more that the last time maybe in part to the fact that the laser was turned up higher.
Today (two days later), the area is very sore to the touch and I can see some redness around the lines of the tattoo. She scheduled my next appointment eight weeks out. So we will see how things go. I am optimistic.
