Hi KD, I finished my treatments on 24th Jan, the treatment itself is a breeze, drop your pants, they line up the tattoos, machine buzzes you for about 5 min (in my case top bottom, and both sides.)
Was a drag getting there, as every day was a different time, so I could not plan anything around it.
Symptoms I experienced, tiredness, loose bowels, constipation, big red patch like sunburn on the backside, I am still fatigued, but it's only been 10 days, and still having a nap in the afternoon, still I am a lot older than you.
I wish you all the best with your treatment.
