What type of numbing medicine do you use. I've had all the procedures done before and the lips are very painful.

We use topical anesthetics for all three areas. For the eyes we use the Incredible I-Cream (and it is incredible, I didn't feel a thing!), for the eyebrows and lips we use TLC which is a combination of tetracaine and lidocaine. During and throughout all procedures we apply Duracaine so that you stay comfortable and pain-free, and it really does help. Some level of sensitivity is to be expected because it is a tattoo, but with the lips that is mostly experienced after the procedure during the healing time which is about a week. Let me know if this answered your question! Hope to see you soon! Dr. T
