Research has shown that children think a needle is the most frightening and painful thing about visiting the doctor. It has been shown that an adult is likely to retain a fear of needles if they have been traumatised at the doctor's as a child.
emla is an anaesthetic cream or patch, that is applied to the skin prior to procedures such as needles, to prevent pain. It works by numbing the skin so that needles and minor skin surgery procedures can be performed without pain.
emla is well tolerated and easy to use and it can be applied at home. Apply the patch or cream at least one hour prior to procedures. It can be left in place for up to five hours for adults and four hours for children.The longer the patch or cream stays on, the better the anaesthetic effect.
emla was the world's first skin anaesthetic and is currently the world
market leader. To date, more than 75 million people worldwide have been effectively treated with emla.
emla is also used for many different procedures, and is suitable for use by adults and children over six months. Some of these include:
* Needle insertions e.g. immunisations
* Blood sampling
* Superficial skin surgery including:
Moles and Skin Cancer removal
* Pain-free administering of local anaesthetics
* Hair removal
* Laser treatment
