Did you know BLT Cream is the preferred topical numbing cream for cosmetic procedures, such as micro-needling? Dermatologists and aestheticians routinely apply it to their patients 30 minutes before procedures to make their experience comfortable and painless.
BLT Cream is one of the most commonly used topical anesthetics by health care providers. Frequently used in minor cosmetic procedures, as a pre-injection numbing agent, in laser therapies, and in a wide variety of other applications, our BLT Cream contains three anesthetic ingredients (benzocaine, lidocaine, and tetracaine) that block nerve signals by disrupting ion flow in the nerves.
Typically bought in bulk for office stock, we can customize our BLT Cream for individual needs pursuant to patient-specific prescriptions.
- Benzocaine – One of the most prevalent anesthetics used in medicine today. Benzocaine works by inhibiting voltage-dependent sodium channels on neuron membranes. It has a rapid onset and is generally well tole rated by patients, making it popular for a variety of applications.
- Lidocaine – A commonly used topical anesthetic discovered in the 1940s. Lidocaine works by blocking sodium channels that, when used topically, prohibit local neurons from signaling the brain. Lidocaine has an onset of approximately 4 minutes when applied directly to the skin.
- Tetracaine 0.5% – A longer-acting anesthetic that changes the function of ryanodine receptors that control intracellular calcium release. Onset time is typically longer than either Benzocaine or Lidocaine when applied topically.
Notes: PRODUCT FOR OFFICE USE – No prescription required.
