A local anesthetic (LA) is a medication that causes absence of pain sensation. Local anesthesia is where a small area of the body is numbed and people remain fully conscious during the procedure, whereas general anaesthesia is where people are totally unconscious and unaware of the procedure. Local anesthesia is often used during minor surgery or procedures, such as a biopsy or dental care. These medicines can be used to treat painful conditions, prevent pain during a procedure or operation, or relieve pain after surgery. Its effects are short-lived, so healthcare providers primarily use it for minor outpatient procedures. Anesthetists or doctors only apply local anesthetic to the part of the body that the medical procedure involves.
