In minor surgery it is common place to use lignocaine with adrenaline as this helps minimise any bleeding during the surgery. Very rarely people can feel their heart race or feel a bit faint which passes in a few minutes. This used frequently by dentists so if you have not had a reaction when a having any tooth treatments then you are unlikely to have any issues. Agaiin this is why is it important to have a thorough medical consultation and any local anaesthetic injected in a medical setting.

Anaesthetic injections are also available without adrenaline and are used for surgery on the fingers and toes as well as for anyone who is sensitive to adrenaline. Most anaesthetics work within 1-2 minutes and last for 1-3 hours.

Anaesthetic creams such as EMLA are also available for less invasive skin treatments and provide a good numbing effect.

All our doctors will discuss your best options for you to ensure the most comfortable procedure possible.

I have been to cosmedics UK for first time for removing skin tag. Dr, Vardy was very helpful. She explained every detail for removing the tag. Gave good advise and was very comfortable to talk to. She listened everything I talked with her. I was happy to see her and had my treatment. Thank you.
