Everyone has a different threshold for withstanding pain. Here at Ruth Swissa we have seen the full spectrum of pain tolerance in our clients. While the topical numbing cream Ruth uses has worked wonders over the years making her clients feel more comfortable and relaxed while having their make-up applied. To make the process even more comfortable we have acquired a new machine to assist in the numbing process. It works by making the area to be treated (eyes or lips) very cold, therefore relieving any remaining discomfort. Feedback from our clients has been amazing regarding the new machine and its abilities. Those who have had procedures both with and without the new machine have stated that it made a significant difference in the ease of their appointment. However, Ruth will work with each patient individually to keep their comfort level appropriate for their individual tolerance to pain regardless of the method.
