Topical Anesthetic that works

Recommended Posts

Have you had any luck with a trans-dermal local anesthetic?


I'm starting to do Botox on teens and the last one found hard because of her needle phobia. But I thought doing some lidocaine gel first for all my patients to reduce their anxiety for future treatments (35 injections). I have used refrigerants for trigger point injections in the past, but that wouldn't be practical.


But if I remember right the lidocaine gel doesn't penetrate the dermis that well and is more of a placebo. What's your thoughts?


I'm going off the grid in 30 minutes so I'll check back in 9 days. BTW, greetings from Casablanca!
