INFORMATION

Frequently Asked Questions

Emla cream is a eutectic mixture that contains 2 forms of localized anesthetic: lidocaine (2.5%) and prilocaine (2.5%). This ointment is indicated for dermal anesthesia, though it may also be used on genital mucous membranes for superficial, minor surgeries, as well as in pretreatment for infiltration anesthesia.

Emla cream is suitable for use on patients who are about to undergo any procedures that require dermal pain relief, including electrolysis and laser hair removal. This cream is suitable for use in pediatric patients, although additional precautionary measures must be taken and the recommended dosage guidelines must be followed closely in these cases. This product is contraindicated in patients with a known hypersensitivity to amide-type local anesthetics or to any other component of the product.

Emla is a topical anesthetic used to block the transmission of pain signals through nerves in the skin. When this numbing cream is applied to the dermis, lidocaine and prilocaine are released, producing an analgesic effect. Both lidocaine and prilocaine are membrane-stabilizing drugs, working to stop action potentials from occurring along the axon membrane in nerve cells, blocking the transmission of sensations between the peripheral nerve cells and the central nervous system. When applied to the skin, lidocaine and prilocaine are released into the epidermal and dermal layers, where they gather near pain receptors and nerve endings. There, they inhibit the influx of sodium through voltage-gated sodium channels, thereby impeding the initiation and conduction of impulses.

Emla will begin to have a numbing effect within 15 minutes of initial application. However, it will take at least 60 minutes for its full analgesic effects to set in. This loss of sensation will last for 1–2 hours after the cream is removed from the skin. It should be noted that absorption of the medication by the genital mucosa is more rapid. Because of this, the onset time is shorter (at 5 to 10 minutes) than after application to intact skin.
