Comfortably Numb

Those who aren't up for the grin-and-bear-it approach to injections and laser sessions and have long relied on a topical anesthetics, such as lidocaine-based EMLA lotion which can require 60 to 90 minutes to take full effect and don't always dull every nerve receptor.....HELP IS ON THE WAY!

Now comes Pliaglis, a peel-off mask containing the highest concentration of topical lidocaine approved by the FDA (7 percent). It kicks in in as little as 20 minutes and, according to a study published in Dermatologic Surgery, has the same low risk of side effects, such as mild redness or swelling. Post-procedure, patients can minimize evidence of their office visit with Dr. Hauschka Ouch! Aid Arnica Compresses towelettes doused in the plant extract by derms for quelling bruises and puffiness.

Happy Cosmetic Surgery!!! (which I am ALL for)
