Emla Cream 5% 5x5g Tubes with 12 Dressings is suitable if you plan to use Emla prior to procedures such as blood tests or repeated injections for an ongoing medical condition. 12 dressings are also included in this pack, which is enough for 10 or more applications on cream when numbing a small area of skin.
Emla Cream contains prilocaine and lidocaine; these two active ingredients help numb the skin for at least two hours.
When Emla cream is applied to the skin, the lidocaine and prilocaine help prevent pain signals passing from that area to the brain thus helping to ease the pain otherwise caused by needles or minor cosmetic skin procedures.
