A Guide to Numbing Cream
Published: 14th July, 2017 in: Skin Conditions
Getting a tattoo, a bikini wax or laser hair removal doesn’t have to cause you pain. In fact, more and more people are using numbing cream to take the sting out of painful skin treatments.
Numbing cream is a formula that contains anesthetic and can be applied directly to the skin to relive symptoms of pain. When applied before skin treatments, waxing or tattooing, it numbs the area and provides quick pain relief.
Numbing cream can be used for:
- Injections and Blood Samples
- Dermal Fillers
- Laser Hair Removal
- Permanent Makeup
- Skin Treatments
How Does Numbing Cream Work?
Numbing cream blocks the pain signals from reaching the brain due to ingredients that contain active numbing agents. It works as an anesthetic to numb a chosen area prior to a skin treatment.
How Long Does Numbing Cream Last?
A numbing cream should be applied around 30 minutes to one hour before the skin treatment in question and your skin will remain numb for up to two hours after use.

LMX4 numbing cream can also be used to relive the pain from insect bites, minor cuts and burns and abrasions as well as prior to skin treatments such as medical face peels, permanent makeup and dermal fillers.
