BUY EMLA CREAM TO NUMB SKIN PRIOR TO DERMAL FILLER INJECTION, BOTOX ADMINISTRATION AND OTHER AESTHETIC MEDICAL TREATMENTS
Any cosmetic procedure in which the skin gets penetrated is potentially painful, but we all vary in how we perceive the sensation of pain and how much it bothers us. Many of us are anxious about having dermal filler injections because of a pain it may cause.
To make the experience of a medical aesthetic treatment more comfortable, plastic surgeons, aesthetic practitioners and Registered Nurses use a few topical anesthetic creams that have been approved by the FDA. One of them is EMLA cream.
WHAT IS EMLA CREAM?
It is a skin numbing cream. This skin numbing cream contains two medicines: lidocaine and prilocaine. These active ingredients belong to a group of medicine called local anesthetics.
INDICATIONS & BENEFITS OF EMLA CREAM IN AESTHETIC MEDICINE
EMLA stands for Eutectic Mixture of Local Anesthetics and represents a eutectic mixture of lidocaine 2.5% and prilocaine 2.5% formulated as an oil in water emulsion.
This skin numbing cream is an effective and well-tolerated local anesthetic (numbing medication).
EMLA cream is used for relieving pain of intact skin and numbing skin to pain associated with laser surgery, superficial dermatologic procedures and aesthetic treatments such as botox and dermal filler injections, microdermabrasion, dermarolling, laser resurfacing, chemical peeling and others.
HOW DOES EMLA CREAM WORK?
It works by numbing the surface of the skin for a short time.
When EMLA is applied to the skin, the lidocaine and prilocaine prevent pain signal passing from that area to the brain by blocking the nerves from transmitting painful impulses to the brain, and help numb the skin. The entire procedure can be carried out without causing any pain, although you will still feel some sensations such as pressure and touch.
EMLA numbing cream is put on the skin before certain medical and aesthetic medical procedures, such as botox and dermal filler injections, microdermabrasion, dermarolling, laser resurfacing, chemical peeling and others.
When you buy EMLA online, make sure you thoroughly read the instructions leaflet provided within the product package before applying this numbing medication.
Ii is important to understand that administration of a skin numbing EMLA cream requires an application of a dressing: either band-aid dressing or occlusive film dressing.
- Allergy to amide anesthestics such as lidocaine, mepivacaine, prilocaine, bupivacaine, ropivacaine
- Patients treated with class III anti-arrhythmic drugs (eg, amiodarone, bretylium, sotalol, dofetilide)
- Patients with congenital or idiopathic methemoglobinemia
- Infants under the age of twelve months who are receiving treatment with methemoglobin-inducing agents
Wash hands immediately after use unless you are treating an area on the hands.
Avoid getting EMLA cream in your eyes, nose, ears, or mouth. If it gets in the eyes, rinse the affected eye immediately and completely with water or saline. Numbness in the eye can lead to injury because you cannot feel particles in the eye or other dangers. Therefore, protect the eye until feeling returns.
The area may be numb for several hours after the procedure. Protect the area from injury. Be careful not to bump, rub, or scratch the area or expose it to heat/cold until feeling returns.
EMLA cream is available without prescription. However, you still need to use it carefully to get the best results from it.
ADMINISTRATION OF EMLA CREAM
When you buy EMLA online from Anna’s Cosmetics or another online store, make sure you thoroughly read the instructions leaflet provided within the cream package before applying this numbing medication.
Provided below are some of the basic directions intended to guide you through the process of skin numbing treatment:
- Apply EMLA numbing cream at least 1 hour prior to any type of cosmetic procedure. For more advanced purposes, such as skin surgery, the term of application is commonly 2 hours prior to the operation.
- Once you have selected the area upon which you will apply EMLA, squeeze a thick layer of it upon the area, without spreading it too widely or rubbing it in. The layer of EMLA numbing cream should be approximately 5 mm thick and have 20 mm in diameter, but may vary depending on the procedure you are going to commence.
- Have a specific dressing ready. EMLA must be used with either band-aid dressing or occlusive film dressing.
- Keep the dressing in place for at least 60 minutes. Depending on the procedure you are undergoing, you may need to wait for an additional period of time; in adults, EMLA can be left on the skin for up to 5 hours.
- When the time of the cosmetic procedure comes, remove the dressing and clean off any remains of EMLA numbing cream. Any procedures should to be performed only when all the traces of the skin numbing cream EMLA have been removed.
