Yes, Emla (lidocaine and prilocaine) is effective. Emla (lidocaine and prilocaine) is a cream containing Lidocaine and prilocaine which are both local anesthetics. Emla (lidocaine and prilocaine) cream is applied to the skin about 30 minutes before a shot or injection or even sometimes before a tattoo and helps prevent pain.
