Pliaglis for Effective Local Anesthesia During Botox & Dermal Filler Procedures, Mesotherapy & Laser Resurfacing
Due to the popularity of cosmetic procedures, there is a high demand for effective topical anesthetics that offer elimination of needles and fast and effective pain relief. Injectable anesthetics can be considered painful, therefore they are not suitable for patients afraid of needles. However, local anesthetics are considered inconvenient because they need occlusive dressings to enhance skin penetration.
Being a local anesthetic, Pliaglis has been proved to be highly effective in producing local dermal anesthesia for a wide variety of cosmetic procedures, including mesotherapy, lipotherapy and mole removal.
What Is Pliaglis?
Pliaglis is a stable mixture of 7% Lidocaine and 7% Tetracaine cream. It is the only FDA-approved topical anesthetic that combines such high concentrations of these two powerful ingredients.
Indications of Pliaglis in Aesthetic Medicine
Plastic surgeons love Pliaglis because it is well-tolerated and gives mild side effects when used as recommended compared to the other local anesthetics. Furthermore, lidocaine/tetracaine cream has several other unique attributes:
- Ease of application
- Self-occluding formulation
- Ease of removal
- Ability for use in skin folds and provide adequate anesthesia at peripheral skin areas.
