This is a high-end numbing cream with is great for waxing, laser or electrolysis treatment. Most numbing creams don't last long without needing to reapply. This one can last you all day and up to two hours. The Lidocaine 4% would be effective for treating injuries, needle or laser injections, or tattoos.
This is a good option for the extra amount of pain you will be in for a wax procedure. This would also be good for anyone getting hair removal treatment, deep tissue massage, or injecting in the buttocks or legs. It is not suggested for use around the eye area, but this cream was not designed to treat eye pain.
