Topical anesthetic spray is very different from a cream and gel in terms of its application. In a spray, numbing ingredients are tightly compressed and only released in form of drops or mist on your skin, when sprayed. The spray works effectively when applied on the skin. It is easier and time saving as you don’t need to wash your hands before or after applying it. Just spray it on your skin and you are ready for waxing. The spray minimizes the feeling of discomfort experienced during waxing.

Wait approximately for 2-3 minutes to allow the skin to get numb.

After that, you can proceed with the waxing process. The GiGi Anesthetic spray is meant only for external use. If you mistakenly spray it on any sensitive area of the body, immediately contact your doctor.
