Nanotechnology Vehicle Speeds Numbing of Topical Lidocaine

Abstract:
A 4% topical lidocaine cream with a nanotechnology-based vehicle in development provided superior pain relief before facial filler injections, compared with the most commonly-used topical anesthetic cream, according to patient and physician ratings in two split-face studies.

"This really has potential as the next topical anesthetic," Dr. Glynis Ablon said at the South Beach Symposium.

Although most dermatologists and pediatricians apply topical anesthetic products (such as commonly used LMX4 cream) approximately 20 minutes before needle-based procedures, the efficacy of NTL4 (Cutiecaine Cream) was seen in as little as 5 minutes, Dr. Ablon said.
