Zensa Numbing Cream

The Zensa Numbing Cream is made in Canada and can be used for any Permanent Makeup procedure you are having done where you need the area numbed - this could be eyebrows, lips, injections, and more! 

This cream contains 5% Lidocaine and will last 2-3 hours after applying it. 

How to use Zensa Numbing Cream:

You will want to clean the area beforehand with a mild cleanser or some alcohol on a cotton pad. Apply the cream to the area you want to work on, ensuring you do not rub it into the skin. 

Then you will want to seal the area with plastic wrap, which will trap the heat inside where the cream is applied. The cream needs to stay on the skin for 30-40 minutes for tattoos and laser hair removal, and 15-20 minutes for permanent makeup procedures. 

Once you are ready to begin your procedure, wipe away the cream with a clean dry cloth.

J-Pro Tattoo Numbing Cream

Tattoo local anesthetic J-Pro Tattoo Numbing Cream is typically used in permanent makeup procedures like Ombre brows, microblading, and micro-shading eyebrows.

This product has 5% Lidocaine and 1% Prilocaine, making it a perfect cream to use before starting your permanent makeup procedures. 

How to Use J-PRO:

You will want to wash the area thoroughly first with a mild cleanser and water and then cover the area with a warm to hot towel for at least 5 minutes. Make sure you are checking up with your clients that the towel isn’t too hot for their skin. 

Afterward, dry the area completely with a clean towel. Then you will want to apply a thick layer of the J-Pro numbing cream, rub it in, and then apply a second layer once the first layer has absorbed. Cover the cream with plastic wrap - this will keep the heat at the cream and will prevent it from drying out. 

Leave the cream on for 25-50 minutes, then you can remove the cream afterward or if it’s a large section, remove the cream as needed. 

This cream should last 3 -5 hours on most clients, but be sure to check up with them and ask if they feel like the cream is wearing off.
