BLT topical anesthetic cream is a one-time use preparation that contains lidocaine, benzyl alcohol, and tetracaine. BLT is perfect for any type of microneedling treatment. It provides immediate relief from pain and can be used to anesthetize larger areas requiring more than one needle at the same time.
The use of topical anesthetics for dermal procedures is well accepted and widely used. Topical anesthetic creams are applied before the dermal procedure and can be either a cold block, topical anesthesia, or topical anesthetic cream with a local anesthetic.
There are a number of agents available to provide optimal analgesia while minimizing the chance of systemic side effects; the most commonly used agents in this class include lidocaine (2%), tetracaine (1%), benzocaine (5%), tetracaine-benzocaine mixture, articaine 5%, and prilocaine 5%. Lidocaine has been shown to provide effective maximal pain relief with minimal local tissue toxicity.

How to Apply and Use BLT for Maximum Effectiveness
Skin numbing creams use a topical anesthetic to provide temporary relief from pain. They work by blocking pain fibers and producing numbness at the site of application. The key ingredient in these creams is Lidocaine, which belongs to a class of drugs used as a local anesthetic. Lidocaine’s mechanism of action is believed to be related to its ability to interfere with the signals that are transmitted by nerves that detect pain.
It is generally advised to apply the numbing cream before starting microneedling or other skin treatments. If applied after treatment, it may make the area too numb for proper assessment or complete treatment.
What can BLT numbing creams do for you
A BLT numbing cream is used to numb the skin to decrease pain and discomfort before procedures such as microdermabrasion, chemical peel treatments, tattooing, waxing and laser hair removal.
It also can be used on sensitive areas of the skin for certain types of other procedures. For example, it can be applied to the vagina for a pap smear.
Finally, the MD needle pen is a pen-like device that applies pressure on specific points on the body. It uses needles with different lengths and diameters so that patients can choose their level of pain relief from mild to intense.
