Emla Cream 5% contains prilocaine and lidocaine, two active ingredients that help numb the skin. It is a local anaesthetic cream that can be applied to the skin to suppress the pain of needle procedures, to help you feel less pain.
When Emla cream is applied to the skin, the lidocaine and prilocaine prevent pain signals passing from that area to the brain and help numb the skin. This means otherwise painful procedures can be performed without causing pain.

Emla Cream 5% 30g instructions for application:
Please make sure an appropriate occlusive dressing is used to cover the skin to maximise the absorption, and leave on the skin surface for adequate time (usually 60 minutes) ahead of the needle procedure. You can also ask your pharmacist to advise you on how much to use and where to apply. †Please ensure the needle procedure is performed within the following four hours, but preferably as soon as possible after removal of the excess cream.

I from time to time, need to use this as I have a severe needle phobia, causing my existingmild anxiety to get to high levels, when tests need carrying out, i.e blood test, have been putting this off for ages, until I discovered this. Dislike the small size, as its not sufficient for more than 1 procedure, and I tend to rub the cream into much so its not effective, hence the large size.Also helps with other cosmetic procedures besides the necessary health tests that are unpleasant, this does work very well, when you use it in the right way, ie not supposed to rub the cream in totally.I think there should be a dressing pack for both sizes.
I put this on about 30-40 minutes before microneedling my stretch marks (on my tummy) with 1.5mm needles. I cover the area with clingfilm while i wait for it to work. It works. No complaints.
