Numbing Cream For Laser Hair Removal

Is hair removal a component of your regular beauty routine? Or, is it for the first time that you are seriously considering laser hair removal after having tried tweezing, shaving and waxing for a long time?

If the answer to this question is a ‘Yes,’ you may have either overcome the discomfort involved in hair removal procedures (which is rare) or you are probably wondering if you should use a numbing cream or not.

In any case, prior information on the outcome of this procedure and the discomfort involved can save you from any surprises.

Contrary to what many people believe, a topical anesthetic (numbing creams like Dr Numb) won’t interfere with the laser hair removal procedure. Oil based numbing creams may almost certainly cause some problems but since Dr Numb is a water based cream, it doesn’t really matter which skin procedure you are undergoing.

Skin care specialists, tattoo artists and even certified dermatologists in many parts of the world recommend Dr Numb for painless skin care procedures. So, if you want a lasting solution by opting for laser hair removal, do consider buying a pack of Dr Numb tubes. Rest assured, it won’t affect the efficacy of the procedure in any manner. Just make sure you remove the cream completely once the procedure is complete as a residue can hamper light absorption by the skin. Also, the cream shouldn’t be applied on a large body area at once. For example, if you are looking to get rid of all hair on your legs and thighs, plan on using the numbing cream for numbing small patches.
