Default Anyone have experience with laser procedure w/no anesthesia?

My daughter is 18 months old with a lower lip hemangioma. We stopped her medication 2 months ago and her dermatologist said that she is a canidate for a laser procedure. I was told that she would not be put under or given any injected/topical numbing medication. Her doctor describes the pain as a rubber band snap and will only last 5-10 seconds. We made an appointment, but I'm very nervous. I'm thinking younger is better, because hopefully she won't remember it. Has anyone had a similiar situation?
