The Food and Drug Administration has approved a cream called PLIAGLIS to prevent pain during cosmetic procedures.
Galderma Laboratories is the producer of the cream.
PLIAGLIS is a topical anesthesia cream that is to be applied twenty to thirty minutes prior to minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. Those type of procedures include derma fillers and hair removal. The cream creates a pliable layer over skin that makes injections and lasers or waxing more bearable.
For more painful procedures, apply the cream sixty minutes before the procedure.
