Electrolysis can be very uncomfortable for some people. The multiple zaps the client feels during the procedure can be painful. For those clients who feel uncomfortable, topical numbing cream for electrolysis can be the answer. Topical numbing cream for electrolysis pain reduction can numb the application area so that the client is more comfortable. This will make the procedure easier for both the electrologist and the client. The improved comfort from using the topical numbing cream for electrolysis will make the procedure go much smoother and faster, which will in turn free up time for the clinician while improving the client experience.
Electrolysis is performed by inserting a hair-thin needle or probe into a hair follicle and then applying an electric current to the follicle to destroy it. The procedure works on a hair-by-hair basis.
Electrolysis is an invasive procedure and can be painful, most likely on the level of continuous plucking or stinging.
Most often performed on sensitive areas like the upper lip or the eyebrows, you may feel like you need something to help reduce the pain or stinging sensation during the process.
Some Lidocaine topical anaesthetic creams are available over the counter, such as NeuroMed 7.
Topical numbing creams work by being absorbed into the layers of skin being treated so that there is no sensation during the treatment. It is important to follow the guidelines correctly when applying lidocaine cream, to insure that it works correctly, but also to ensure that you do not use too much or for too long as this may cause certain side effects.
NeuroMed 7, for example is supplied in single-use, sanitary, metered dose packets. This makes it real easy to know how much to use. The good thing about single-use, sanitary, packets, is that they also eliminate the risk of outside contaminants entering the container, such as is the case with multi-use jars and tubes each time they are reopened for subsequent uses.
