cetacaine® Topical Anesthetic GEL products

Cetacaine Topical Anesthetic Gel

(Benzocaine 14%, Butamben 2%, Tetracaine HCl 2%)

Cetacaine Gel is formulated to provide clinicians with the Cetacaine triple-ingredient formula in a gel form. Patients will know the difference because Cetacaine has been proven to be more effective than 20% Benzocaine alone. The fast acting, long-lasting formula can be applied easily wet surface tissues, and the gel consistency gives you more control during application. Cetacaine Gel reacts with the body’s temperature to absorb into the tissue where it is applied. Use Cetacaine gel to anesthetize prior to the administration of an injection, or for minor surgical or laser procedures. The unique pump-top jar keeps the contents safely enclosed to help protect the un- used portion from cross contamination. You simply depress the pump top to control the amount of Cetacaine Gel that is dispensed. 32 g. Rx only.

Cetacaine Gel is available in two flavors, Strawberry and Cool Mint.
