FEEL THE BEAUTY, NOT THE BURN. OUR STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS FOR YOUR UPCOMING APPOINTMENT.
Prior to your treatment, you will need to pick up a numbing kit. Enclosed in your numbing kit is a small container of BLT cream. This cream consists of Benzocaine, Lidocaine, and Tetracaine.
For Laser or Microneedling Treatments: 45-60 Minutes Before Treatment
Start with a clean, makeup free face. This includes any eye make-up and lipstick. Remove any oils from the skin by thoroughly washing the face. This will increase the absorption of the numbing cream.
Put the glove on and remove cream from the jar. Gently massage cream over the entire face, starting with the forehead and working downward toward the jawline (About an inch below and just under chin area).
Massage the cream into the skin paying special attention to boney areas of the face such as the forehead, cheekbones and jawline. You do NOT have to apply a THICK layer for the cream to be effective. Avoid under eye area, applying cream no higher than the bony prominence of the cheek. Avoid eyelids and lips. If BLT gets on your lip or tongue, or if you rub your eye, it will also get numb. This is not cause for concern, but it will feel odd.
Remember: You must start numbing 45-60 minutes before your treatment for the cream to be effective. Failure to do this will result in unnecessary discomfort during your treatment or cancellation of your appointment.
