Lidocaine is the main ingrediant of Mr. Numb Painless Procedure Cream(30g Jar), and is one of the most recognized ingrediants with regards to topical pain relief in the medical field. It was first discovered by a Swedish scientist named Nils Lofgren in 1943, and was first called Xylocaine. There are many uses for lidocaine, and topical medicines using it in different formulations are prescribed for itching, burining, pain and skin irritations. The chemical works by interrupting the transmission of information across the nerve centers in the skin, thereby producing a feeling of numbness, or lack of sensation of any kind. This is accomplished through the blocking of the electrical impulses across the nerve, and is temporary.
One of the drawbacks against he use of lidocaine-based products is that they will often casue edema, or swelling of the skin. While this generally is only slightly problematic, procedures that require precision placements of needles or artwork, as in tattooing and botox injections, become more difficult for the technician when there is a swelling effect, and many artists will prefer to work on untreated skin as it provides a better canvas. As their artwork is not judged upon the comfort of the patient, but instead on the outcome after application, many artists will prefer the patient to endure the pain so as to have a better canvas with which to work. The formulation of Mr. Numb allows for edema to be greatly reduced, if not completely emliminated. Formulated to act slowly, and over a longer period of time, Mr. Numb provides the pristine canvas that so many artists are looking for. This formulation is accomplished through the use of lidocaine and tetracaine in specific amounts, tested over time to produce the best results possible as well as the most comfortable and pain-free experience available to the patient.
