Does the CO2 treatment hurt?

We provide patients with topical anaesthetic which makes the treatment more comfortable to experience without unnecessary pain or stress, although patients should be aware that there is normally a slight stinging sensation at the time of treatment.

Patients are free to drive home once their skin have been treated with gel for protection against risk of infection. The immediate after effect is to experience mild discomfort for up to 1 hour and is similar to bad sunburn.
