Always make sure that you buy a numbing cream that is licensed for sale in the UK.

 

Emla is a genuine, licensed numbing cream approved for sale in the UK. Unfortunately there are many unlicensed and fake medicines advertised for sale online to UK customers and numbing creams are no exception. Such products could be sold through online retailers or may be found through search engines. The adverts or websites may look authentic but are often not legitimate. Unlicensed or fake medicines may not have been manufactured safely and may contain ineffective or dangerous contents.

 

Which Emla numbing cream is right for you?

There are a range of packs available depending on what you wish to use Emla numbing cream for. Emla should be applied and covered with a suitable dressing about an hour before a procedure (less when applying to the face) so that the cream is absorbed into the skin and not accidentally wiped off. Some packs have the right dressings included in them; others only contain a tube of cream.
