Numit cream has two active ingredients (local anaesthetics) that work together to give a skin-numbing effect, so you can tough it through a range of common minor superficial medical and cosmetic procedures.
Numit contains a synergistic combination of lidocaine (also called lignocaine) and prilocaine. This combination of local anaesthetics can penetrate the skin and target nerve endings more easily. This helps stop pain signals from starting and spreading.
Droplets of liquid anaesthetic penetrate the skin to numb the site. These droplets also form a ‘reservoir’ in the top layer of skin.
The reservoir continues to release anaesthetic into the skin’s deeper layers, which increases the numbing effect for up to 60 minutes after the cream is removed.
