One of the oldest ways of accessorizing is with piercing. Piercing is the act of puncturing a skin layer to create a hole for a jewelry to fit in. This is usually done in the ear lobes, nose, belly button and in certain times tongue. This is a kind of body modification that is undeniably painful for some people who have low pain threshold or tolerance. This is done by people who would like to put an accessory in their body to enhance their beauty and others to build up an image.
One helpful way in order to go through with this painful procedure is to use a numbing cream that could help you numb the area that needs to be pierced. Puncturing your skin with a metal piece is always painful. Numbing creams work by blocking the nerve endings from sending pain signals to the brain. Lidocaine is a powerful anesthetic ingredient found in Dr. Numb, the leader in topical anesthetic. This cream has been proven safe and effective to many different type of skin procedure.
All you need to do is to apply a thick amount of Dr. Numb on to your skin and leave it on for at least an hour prior the procedure. This will help numb the area for a pain-free body piercing. You have to take note that Dr. Numb is for external use only. It should be placed on your tongue or other internal parts of the body. Be certain that you are not allergic to Lidocaine or any other anesthetic agent to avoid allergic reaction.
