The million dollar question lol....everyone's pain threshold differs. It is advised that you purchase a numbing anesthetic (EMLA or Numbit) from your local pharmacy and apply it 60 min prior to your appointment and wrap it with cling wrap in a bandanna style around your head (if you don't wrap it it will evaporate and its effect wont take)
