Alright I know many of you are curious to know how the Neo Mag Light is working out for me. Honestly, it is hard for me to update because I freak out every time I try to use it. You are supposed to hold the light up to the tattoo for a full count of three, and I’ve been lucky if I make it to two. Using ice does not really help me with the anxiety / pain piece, and pain no longer feels good to me (hence, why I am longing to remove the tattoos…)
At this point I think the only way I can move forward with this is if I can get some numbing cream. It literally feels like you are purposefully holding a scolding hot pan to your skin. Not fun. I’ve just done another round of “2 count” treatment, not the full “3 count” The instructions state you should feel a good burn / snap. However, I have only ever experienced the burn. Probably because I am not willing to withstand the burn beyond that 2 second count.
Here is my BEFORE photo.
There is no AFTER photo yet. I still need to grow a pair and use the machine as directed… so, at this point I can’t really tell you if it works or not. My next step is if I can’t get some numbing cream, to just have my husband hold me down so I can’t flinch. Stay tuned…
