- The Emla healing patch is a great way to reduce pain and discomfort associated with punctures and treatments. The patch contains lidocaine and prilocaine, substances that enable local anesthesia.
Emla healing patch Composition:
1 treatment patch with an area of about 10 cm2 contains active substances: 25 mg of lidocaine and 25 mg of prilocaine and auxiliary substances: polyoxyethylene hydrogenated castor oil, carboxypolymethylene (Carbopol 974P), sodium hydroxide to obtain pH, purified water.
Emla. Medicinal plaster Action:
The local anesthesia is provided by the Emla healing patch. In the middle of the patch there is a white disc impregnated with an emulsion containing two active substances with local anesthetic, i.e. lidocaine and prilocaine. The use of emulsion allows to obtain appropriately high concentrations of therapeutic substances (oily phase) and penetration deep into the skin (water phase), which makes the eutectic mixture of locally active anesthetics (Emla) is very effective. The degree of anesthetic effect depends on the time of exposure to the active substances and the number of patches applied. If the patch is left on the skin for 1-2 hours, the anesthesia effect lasts for about 2 hours.
