There is pain associated with laser-assisted tattoo removal. For this reason, some form of anesthesia is commonly used to eliminate or minimize the pain. This anesthesia is usually a topical local anesthetic cream or ointment spread over the skin. The purpose of this study is to further estimate the effectiveness of S-Caine™ Peel (lidocaine 7% and tetracaine 7% cream) for treating pain during laser-assisted tattoo removal.

Condition Intervention Phase
Pain Drug: S-Caine™ Peel (lidocaine and tetracaine cream 7%/7%) Phase 3
