How Does Dr. Numb® Cream Work?

Lidocaine used in Dr. Numb® Cream which has been in use as an anesthetic in medical and dental offices since long.

Dr. Numb® is composed of a pure form of Lidocaine which helps in numbing the part of the skin where it is applied.

Pain is a result of stimulation of pain receptors by the external stimuli at the ends of the nerves. After the stimulation sodium enters the nerve ending which builds an electrical signal in the nerve. After the electrical signal gets big enough, it reaches the brain along the nerve. The brain interprets this signal as pain and that’s why we feel intense pain during the piercing.

Dr. Numb® blocks the pathway of the pain signals along the nerves which doesn’t allow the pain to be felt. Dr. Numb® cream blocks the sodium which enters the nerve at the site of the pain. Therefore, the electrical signal doesn’t build up and doesn’t reach to the brain. Therefore, no pain is experienced during dermatological procedures.

Dr. Numb® cream has long lasting impact of around 4 hours which is good enough for the successful completion of the treatment. You just have to apply the cream half an hour before the procedure or as directed by the physician.

Directions For Use:

1. First wash the area with soap and water where a particular procedure is to be carried out and make it clean and dry.
2. Then take a thick layer of Dr. Numb®and apply it directly over the area and rub it over the skin gently.
3. After applying a thick layer also apply another thin layer of Dr. Numb® over the same area.
4. Now cover the area with saran wrap for sometimes till your aesthetician doesn’t ask you to remove it. This will allow the ingredients to be absorbed properly in the skin and cause numbing.
