Has anyone used emla (lidocaine and prilocaine) for waxing?

Thanks for asking! Emla (lidocaine and prilocaine) cream applied over large surfaces can cause toxicity. It should be reserved for small areas of the skin.
Just saw a video. Of someone who used it. They didn't feel any pain. I can't say i could recommend it, but looked like it worked fine.
