Numbing Cream for Immunization

An immunization is a process to make a person’s immune system strong against viruses or infection. From a routine childhood immunizations, travel vaccinations to flu vaccinations, it helps protect you from getting an infectious disease at every point of your life.

Vaccination or shot is a common and most used form of immunization, meaning that a needle is pricked into the person’s skin wherein the vaccine is pushed. Needless to say that injecting through needle is painful, especially in kids and those having less pain threshold. It is common to come across the people who fear from needles. More than 50 million Americans have a fear of vaccination needles. And 20 percent of them don’t go for treatment or diagnosis just because of their fear of getting shots. A fear of vaccination is termed as Trypanophobia.

Immunization is essential for your health. It can make a difference between life and death. So, you should not skip your vaccination. Instead, you can use a topical anesthetic or numbing cream to overcome fear of injection.

A numbing cream dulls your pain receptors so that they can’t send pain signals to the brain. Once your skin is numbed, you don’t feel anything happen or done to your skin.

Though you can choose any numbing cream, you should consider your skin sensitivity and quality while buying the cream.  Generally, a numbing cream is available without doctor’s prescription as it is an OTC product. You can ask your pharmacist or physician for a right numbing cream for immunization. Dr. Numb is a highly recommended numbing cream for all dermal processes including immunization.

Our Testimonials

I have used this to pre numb my clients prior to microblading. Works amazingly for some clients, but not all which is super normal. Everyone reacts differently, but for the most part have had great results!

~ Carolina Sanchez

I have used this for many sessions. You CAN'T FEEL ANYTHING for the first bit. It slowly wears off after a bit, but that's to be expected. Highly recommended. I'm buying another tube soon.

~ Ryan Bell

I use Dr. Numb for all my microblading clients. I was previously using a gel that was not near as effective as Dr. Numb. I 100% recommend to all the other permanent makeup artist out there. Thank you from me and my clients. The best in the biz!
