There are many uses for lidocaine based numbing cream, all of which involve temporary numbing of the skin in order to stop pain from being an issue during specific procedures. Different formulations of numbing creams on the market make for different uses, due to the fact that there is usually "edema" or swelling of the treated area if the lidocaine formulation is too strong. The more powerful the formulation, the faster the actual 'numbing" takes place, however this is done with the side effect of swelling in that area. Mr. Numb utilizes a lidocaine formulation that takes a longer time to work, but has no swelling effect on the skin. This allows for the subsequent procedure to be preformed on a more pristine and natural canvas. The formulators of Mr. Numb understand that the actual numbing of the skin is only one aspect of the process, and that procedure that the skin is being numbed for is just as important. Therefore, there is no reason to rush the process and compromise the procedure with swelling just to get numb faster.
Mr. Numb uses lidocaine to numb the skin in preparation of minor procedures that would normally be uncomfortable due to pain. While the specific uses that are suggested for the product are tattoo application, Botox injections and bikini waxing, there are many other procedures that can benefit from the use of the product. As lidocaine numbing creams are temporary, anything that produces short term pain in the skin is a potential procedure that could benefit from the use of Mr. Numb before hand. If you are considering using a lidocaine numbing cream before a procedure, always consult your physician or technician to see if there are any potential complications associated with use.
Lidocaine is excellent for dulling the extended periods of pain associated with tattooing. Due to the fact that the procedure of tattooing involves piercing the skin thousands of times with a needle, the only effective method of reducing the pain associated is by interrupting the nerve transfer in the skin surface. However, typical lidocaine creams numb the skin very quickly, and distort the surface of the skin as a result. Many tattoo artists do not want to work on a swollen canvas, as it has a potential of compromising the quality of the artwork they are charged with applying. Mr. Numb causes no swelling and is therefore perfect for tattoo applications.
Botox injections are painful, and the injecting of Botox into nerve endings in order to have the desired effect also causes intense pain at those nerve endings. The only way to effectively place a Botox injection is through visual analysis of the skin, and a swollen area will not give the correct information as it is not the natural state. Mr. Numb is perfect for Botox injections as it does not cause swelling that can give incorrect information, yet deadens the pain associated with the nerve that is being injected.
Overall, lidocaine can be used in nearly every procedure that will cause pain to the skin. Mr. Numb and its specialized lidocaine formulation provide a more precise ability for the artist and technician to accomplish their goal.
