Quality and Care Advice

Recovery Numb™ Application Protocol  This product is intended for topical use only. It is intended to reduce pain caused by skin procedures  Proper application of Recovery Numb is extremely important for positive effect:    Use approximately a “10p coin ”* size amount per 4”x4” area 15 ‐ 20  minutes prior to procedure (recommendation – 1.0 – 2.0 grams – or milliliters – per  1”X1” square area)


Avoid use on open wounds, exposed subcutaneous tissues, in the eyes, in the ear  canal, in the nostrils and inside the mouth 

Dosage will depend on the skin type, aggressiveness of procedure, known client  pain tolerance and surface area. 

With a gloved hand, evenly distribute the cream and rub vigorously in a circular  motion for at least 30 – 60 seconds to each area of the treatment surface 

It is suggested that you take extra care in applying more aggressively to known  pain‐sensitive “hot spot” areas on the face and body 

The peak action begins in approximately 15 – 20 minutes 

Once anesthetic effect is achieved (15 – 20 minutes), remove any residual  remaining product with a sanitary wet cloth prior to procedure and follow normal  antiseptic prep  

For procedures lasting longer than 60 minutes, reapply as described above, within  the parameters also described above  

For more aggressive procedures some clinicians use an occlusive dressing for an  improved efficacy – taking into account potential toxicity risk factors – occlusive  dressing is any form of non‐porous material that may increase absorption into the  skin such as Saran or other similar wrap or covering. 

It is important to note that applying a hot or warm compress to the treatment area  prior to application of Recovery Numb™ will increase cutaneous absorption. While  this method will enhance the effect of the anesthetic, special care should be  exercised in recognition of the potential for increased systemic entry of the active  ingredient, lidocaine HCL 5%. 

Recovery Numb™ can be applied in more liberal volume where applicable  (recommended maximum is 10 grams per procedure application session)
