Frequently Asked Questions
HOW DO I APPLY THE CREAM?
Information about how to apply creme you can find here
WICH COLOUR IS BEST FOR TATTOOS?
Green, Black, Gold is our strongest deep numb, perfect for tattoos and piercings.
WICH COLOUR IS BEST FOR AESTHETICS?
Gold or red are our best fast numbs – ideal for aesthetic procedures
HOW TO SPOT A FAKE CREAM?
There is an authentic golden hologram on the box.
WILL THE CREAM EFFECT MY INK?
No. Our cream is water based – not oil based – so the ink, tattoo and healing process wont be affected at all!
DO I HAVE TO TELL MY ARTIST/ PRACTITIONER THAT IVE USTED THE CREAM?
We would always advise to tell your artist but its not 100% essential. Always tell your practitioner if using the cream for anything other than a tattoo or piercing.
HOW LONG WILL THE CREAM LAST ONCE OPENED?
If the cream has been opened please discard after 2 weeks as once the cream has been exposed to air it will not be as effective to numb.
HOW MUCH WILL ONE TUBE COVER?
The tubes are 10g and need to be applied nice and thick! One full tube would only be enough to cover a full forearm.
CAN YOU STILL DRIVE AFTER USING THE CREAM?
Absolutely! The numb is only skin deep and wont affect any of your limbs deeper than the skin.
WILL IT COMPLETELY NUMB THE AREA?
All people are different and have different levels of numbing but as long as you apply correctly it should fully numb the area for the majority of people. See the review section for more information!
WHAT IF I HAVE NO CLING FILM?
Sandwich bags taped with masking tape work well too. If you cant use anything like that you may find it doesn’t fully numb the area or the numb doesn’t last as long as it should.
MY CREAM HAS GONE A BROW/ PINKISH COLOUR AFTER OPENING?
This is completely normal! When the cream is exposed to the air it changes colour over time. As long as its not dryed out it should still work just fine!
MY NUMBNESS IS WEARING OFF AND I HAVE A RED RASH?
When the initial numbness sets in, the skin should go more pale if anything. But when the feeling comes back its totally normal for the skin to turn redish as the blood vessels widen back up.
CAN I USE IT FOR SEMI PERMANENT EYELINER?
NO! The cream is too strong to be used on the eyelids.
HOW LONG DOES THE CREAM NUMB FOR?
The deep numb can last up to 3-5 hours
The fast numb can last up to 1-3 hours
CAN I LEAVE IT LONGER THAN 2 HOURS?
We would not recommend leaving the cream on longer than 2 hours. The cream will begin the wearing off process after 2 hours
WHAT IF I LEAVE IT LESS THAN THE REQUIRED TIME?
You might not have the full effective numbing experience, we recommend always leaving the cream on for the recommended application time.
CAN I USE IT ON SENSITIVE SKIN?
If you suffer from red skin, this does not immediately mean that you have an allergic reaction. This may mean that you have applied it correctly and the anesthetic is working. If you have red skin or slightly irritated skin, you can still undergo your procedure, this will have no effect on your treatment or the healing of your tattoo.
