FIRST Please Read Safety Warnings for Lidocaine numbing cream
SAFETY WARNINGS: If you have any concerns about the FOLLOWING, PLEASE CHECK FIRST WITH YOUR PHYSICIAN OR HEALTH CARE PROVIDER before USE. DO NOT USE THESE LIDOCAINE NUMBING CREAM AT ALL IF YOU HAVE ANY ALLERGIES OR SENSITIVITIES TO LIDOCAINE OR CAINE PRODUCTS, such as Chloroprocaine HCL (Nesacaine®), Procaine HCL (Novocain®), Amides, Bupivacaine (Marcaine®, Sensorcaine® ), bupivacaine liposome injectable suspension-Lidocaine (Xylocaine®) with epi, Mepivacaine (Carbocaine®, Polocaine®, or even Benzocaine products. The above is not a complete list.
USING THE PRODUCTS
Try to refrain from washing your face with soap, using any alcohol, or drying products on your face/area the morning of the procedure. Stripping off the lipid layer of your skin tends to lessen the numbing effects of topical anesthetic products.
Do NOT APPLY Lidocaine numbing cream OVER MAKEUP; Use NumbSkin Foaming Soap to remove makeup or cleanse and sanitize skin before using the cream. The Foaming Soap can be used before, during, and after the procedure. It numbs the area in about 5 minutes.
First, apply the NumbSkin Foaming Soap onto the area to be treated, rub in well. Let air dry, or pat dry with gauze or tissue before applying NumbSkin Plus cream. Shake well before each use.
To ensure the anesthetic remains effective, always keep caps on tightly.
IF YOU DID NOT PURCHASE THE FOAMING SOAP, apply a generous amount of lidocaine numbing cream to the area and rub it thoroughly; then apply a thicker “icing layer.”
Apply Press n’ Seal and cover area with it; cut Press n’ Seal to fit the area plus a little overlap, so covering adheres to the skin around it. The warmth from your skin will activate the cream and prevent it from drying out and gunking up.
Leave it on till the skin is completely numb, about 15-20 minutes.
It is better if you let your practitioner remove the wrap as they are working and to remove the wrap in sections, as the anesthetic may start to lose effectiveness as it dries out.
Reapply anesthetic as sensation reoccurs.
