Detailed Information on the Pros and Cons of Skin Numbing Cream

Pros and Cons of Skin Numbing Cream

Skin numbing creams are heaven-sent for those doing certain cosmetic procedures, including tattoo application, waxing, body piercing, or filler injections. They're also used for medical purposes after minor accidents and during minor skin surgeries. They also treat sunburns, rashes, cold sores, haemorrhoids, sore throats, and insect bites.

The active ingredients in most skin-numbing creams are benzocaine, pramoxine, dibucaine, and tetracaine, and act as a local anaesthesia by reducing pain in areas of application.

Numbing Cream for Tattoo Application

Tattoo application can be notoriously painful both during and after application and applying a numbing cream, particularly in sensitive areas, can help reduce pain significantly. However, skin-numbing creams should be used cautiously, as they can present rare but possible negative consequences, but first, the benefits!

Pros of Using a Numbing Cream

Numbing creams are recommended to be reasonably safe for application during minor skin complications and procedures since the effects fade as soon as the cream washes off the skin.

Some people are predisposed to a lower pain tolerance than others. Numbing creams mean that they too, can join the tattoo club. But even those with high pain tolerance can benefit, as numbing cream can make longer sessions more bearable.

Our numbing cream is readily available to purchase online on our website in two convenient sizes to suit your budget.

It is easy to apply, skipping traditional anaesthetic injections and penetrating the skin quickly.

Cons of Using a Skin numbing cream

A numbing cream contains many reasons to use it, but in some cases, if misused or used on an allergic person, it may pose some risks. During application, the artist or practitioner must remember to wear gloves to prevent unwanted effects.

Numbing creams are also not recommended for everyone, especially people with lidocaine allergy, certain heart conditions, and liver disease. It is recommended to talk to your doctor if you're in that category for appropriate advice.

The numbing cream's effectiveness will last between thirty minutes to five hours; one should remember this is dependent on how large or complex their tattoo is likely to be. Also remember to apply the numbing cream beforehand, as it takes about 30 minutes for the numbing effect to work.

Sealing the application area with a plastic wrap and peeling it systematically during application helps prolong the numbing cream's effect.

The pros of numbing cream outweigh going without, even for those with a high pain tolerance.
