I went to my electrolysist today and she offers a new anesthetic gel called Betacaine. It claims to work 2 to 3 times faster than it’s competitors. It contains 5% lidocaine. I haven’t tried it myself, because I can stand the pain. Just thought I’d let you know about this new product. I’m not sure if it’s available in the States yet. Check it out

Yes, it is available in the USA.

Pain management is a very individual thing. What works for one won’t work for others. Some need none, some respond to one product, and others can do without nothing less than a blocker shot.

Just like electrologists, you need to get samples, and try as many as you can until you find what works for you.
