The Benefits of BLT Cream (Triple Numbing Cream) and How it’s Used

BLT Cream or Triple Numbing Cream is a non-invasive, triple anesthetic cream, traditionally consisting of 20% benzocaine, 6% lidocaine, and 4% tetracaine. It is commonly used as a local anesthetic for a variety of procedures. Patients and physicians prefer using BLT Cream because there is no needle required and the application process is quite simple and comfortable.

Here are some common uses for BLT Cream:

Cosmetic and Laser Procedures
BLT Cream is commonly used to numb the area at which a patient will be undergoing laser hair removal.  Particular areas that can be numbed include facial areas, and most general body areas.  It can also be reformulated to be used for cosmetic procedures that require needle sticks, like Botox, dermal fillers, and tattoo removal.

A compounding pharmacist can customize BLT Cream to fit an individual patient’s needs, including the strength and dosage form.  Most of the time it is recommend that BLT Cream be applied to the skin 10-30 minutes before a procedure.  This length of time is also individualized based on the type of procedure performed and compound that is being used.


Dr. Adena Asatoorian, pharmacist, can compound a customized BLT Cream to serve an individual patient’s needs based on a prescription from the patient’s physician.
