Faster & Easier Pain Relief...
Lidocaine/Tetracaine 7%/7% Cream works twice as fast as EMLA and removes the need for occlusion wraps
Lidocaine/Tetracaine 7%/7% Cream is a topical prescription medicine used to provide topical local analgesia for superficial dermatological procedures such as dermal filler injection, pulsed dye laser therapy, facial laser resurfacing, and laser-assisted tattoo removal.
Benefits of Lidocaine/Tetracaine 7%/7% Cream
Combination therapy for powerful topical pain relief: Lidocaine provides faster onset of action (within 20-30 minutes); tetracaine provides lasting effects (median duration of analgesia is 11 hours)

Used in a wide range of dermatological procedures: Including dermal filler injection, non-ablative laser facial resurfacing, pulsed-dye laser therapy, and laser-assisted tattoo removal
Limited side effects: Localized, transient skin reactions that do not appear to interfere with clinical outcome
Safe to use in geriatrics: No overall differences in safety and effectiveness were observed between 65+ year old subjects and younger subjects

Important Safety Information
Lidocaine and tetracaine cream is contraindicated in patients with a known history of sensitivity to lidocaine or tetracaine, local anesthetics of the amide or ester type, or to any other component of the product. Lidocaine and tetracaine cream is contraindicated in patients with para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA) hypersensitivity.
Warnings and Precautions
Cases of methemoglobinemia have been reported in association with local anesthetic use. Although all patients are at risk for methemoglobinemia, patients with glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency, congenital or idiopathic methemoglobinemia, cardiac or pulmonary compromise, infants under 6 months of age, and concurrent exposure to oxidizing agents or their metabolites are more susceptible to developing clinical manifestations of the condition. If local anesthetics must be used in these patients, close monitoring for symptoms and signs of methemoglobinemia is recommended.
Patients with severe hepatic disease or pseudocholinesterase deficiency, because of their inability to metabolize local anesthetics normally, are at a greater risk of developing toxic plasma concentrations of lidocaine and tetracaine
Allergic or anaphylactic reactions have been associated with lidocaine and tetracaine and may occur with other components of lidocaine and tetracaine cream. They are characterized by urticaria, angioedema, bronchospasm, and shock. If an allergic reaction occurs, seek emergency help immediately.
The most common local reactions were erythema, skin discoloration, and edema.
Indications and Usage
Lidocaine and tetracaine cream is a combination of lidocaine, an amide local anesthetic, and tetracaine, an ester local anesthetic, indicated for use on intact skin in adults to provide topical local analgesia for superficial dermatological procedures such as dermal filler injection, pulsed dye laser therapy, facial laser resurfacing, and laser-assisted tattoo removal.
