1. The first step. Before applying the tattoo numbing cream, wash and scrub the area of skin you wish to numb. When dirt and oil are removed from the area, the numbing cream will be more effective because your skin can absorb it more easily. When done dry the area completely
2. Put on waterproof gloves â€“ Latex gloves that completely block out water and moisture will prevent your hands and fingertips from becoming numb from tattoo numbing cream. The last thing anyone wants is that.
3. Apply the cream â€“ Apply a generous layer of TKTX numbing cream to the affected area and massage it in thoroughly. Apply a second heavy layer (1/8â€²â€² or 2-3 mm thick) over the region after massaging the TKTX cream into the skin. Apply numbing cream to the entire work area before lengthy treatments that take hours across large areas; as the procedure progresses, gradually remove the cream in sections. Meanwhile,
4. Wrap - Wrap the TKTX numbing cream in plastic wrap and keep it warm. (The heat from the plastic wrap activates the cream and protects it from drying up.) Skin typically remains numb for 3-5 hours after the cream is removed from numbed skin, depending on skin type and location on the body.
5. Remove the wrap â€“ The plastic wrap should be applied to the area for about 30-45 minutes until you feel the numbing effect starting to work. Once fully numb, the wrap can be removed. Wash the area well after the procedure to remove any residual cream.
And with that, youâ€™re good to go. Youâ€™ve got this! Enjoy your new ink.
What to know before applying the cream
You can increase the absorption of the anesthetic ingredients deeper into the skin by exfoliating first, then wrapping the application area with plastic wrap (which will trap heat). We also suggest using more TKTX lidocaine. Be sure that you do not exceed the recommended amount and allowable body surface area per session, to prevent potential neurologic and cardiac side effects over absorption of the product. You could possibly push some of the product deeper into the skin, which might enhance absorption and potentiate side effects. That's why to wash the area carefully after application.
