In carrying out these cosmetic procedures appropriate to apply the surface (application) anesthesia. Add to your understanding with PCRM. The advantages of topical anesthetic – painless application, high level of anesthesia, use of anesthetic patient (after first consulting a physician) independently before the procedure. Strictly following the advice of a doctor, the patient may cause anesthetic beforehand at home. Thus, there is no need to use the drug in a doctor's office immediately before the procedure and 40-60-minute wait the onset of analgesic effect. At the moment the Russian market only topical anesthetic is certified cream "Emla". It consists of lidocaine and prilocaine. Studies have shown that with a combination of lidocaine and prilocaine in a 1:1 ratio the surface tension of the solution becomes much smaller compared with that of each component separately. At room temperature the product is a oily substance, which when applied under occlusive dressing emulsifies beautifully in the water and provides a gradual release and diffusion of anesthetic into the skin, their penetration through the epidermal barrier and basement membrane and interaction with the free nerve endings and nerve receptors of the skin, which allows for the analgesic action expressed in the epidermal and dermal structures.

To achieve maximum analgesic effect is very important to observe the standard recommendations, as the expression of analgesic effect of the cream "Emla" depends on the dose, exposure time of occlusion. Dosage. Past clinical tests on volunteers showed that the severity of the analgesic effect is dose-dependent damage of the drug. Thus, when applying "thick" cream (2 g of cream per 10 cm 2) in 91% of patients received full anesthesia, while 9% noted poor pain.
