Emla cream gets to work within 60 minutes
• Includes one 5g tube of cream (non-absorbent dressings should be purchased separately)
Emla cream contains two active substances, lidocaine and prilocaine, which together create a numbing effect. This numbing action of Emla works on the skin to provide pain relief during procedures that use a needle, such as blood tests and injections. When using Emla cream you may still experience feelings of pressure and touch during your procedure.
Typically, Emla cream should be applied 60 minutes before the procedure takes place. In most cases, it can take around an hour for Emla to achieve its numbing effect. However, make sure to read the patient leaflet before you apply as different circumstances can affect the numbing process.
When applying the numbing cream to your chosen area of skin you’ll need to cover the spot with an air-tight, transparent dressing. These are known as occlusive dressing and allow the active ingredients to soak into the skin.
