You will experience minimal, if any pain during the procedure. A technician will massage your scalp prior to administering local anesthesia. The massaging creates a vibration in the skin that works in combination with the anesthesia to reduce any discomfort. We give you a mild sedative at the beginning of the session to minimize anxiety, and send you home with a medication to minimize any discomfort during the 12-18 hours following the procedure.
