 WHAT IS EMLA CREAM?

EMLA Cream (lidocaine 2.5% and prilocaine 2.5%) is topical anesthetics for use on normal intact skin for local analgesia (pain relief). It is packaged in 5 gram and 30 gram tubes.
EMLA is a unique product that numbs your skin and makes procedures like laser hair removal and electrolysis less painful.

Applying EMLA

EMLA Cream should be applied one hours before the procedure to the area that will be treated.
Satisfactory numbing of the skin occurs 1 hour after application, reaches a maximum at 2 to 3 hours , and lasts for 1 to 2 hours after removal. This timing makes it convenient to apply EMLA at home prior to laser hair removal or electrolysis appointment.
The cream should be applied very thick (about 1\4 inch thick) to the site of the procedure. You also need to apply the cream to the skin 1/2 inch past the area to be treated.
Cover the area with saran-wrap being careful not to press on the cream in order for it to remain thick. 

Possible side affect
EMLA is contraindicated in patients with a known history of sensitivity to local anesthetics of the amide type or any other component of the product. EMLA is indicated for genital mucous membranes for superficial minor surgery and as pretreatment for infiltration anesthesia.  Side effects generally went away by themselves within 1 or 2 hours.
