Body piercing is a form of body modification. It involves puncturing or cutting a part of the human body, creating an opening in which jewellery may be worn. The most popular pierced body parts are the ear lobes, the nose, and the belly button.
Numbing cream for piercings
The level of pain during piercing depends largely on the location of the piercing and everyone’s personal pain tolerance. Emla cream is an easy to use, topical anaesthetic cream. This means it can be used as a numbing cream for piercings. It contains a tried and trusted formula of liodocaine and prilocaine. When used one hour before the procedure, Emla cream can help numb the pain.
Application for numbing piercings
The Emla cream is put on to the skin in a thick layer and covered with a dressing. The usual dose is 2g applied for 1 to 5 hours under a dressing.
Please note Emla cream should not be applied inside the nose, ear, mouth and in or near the eyes.
* We recommend you speak to the practitioner who will be carrying out the body piercing before using Emla.
