This drug works by stabilising the neuronal membrane by blocking the voltage-gated sodium channels. This inhibits depolarization of the postsynaptic nerve that prevents the transmission of pain signals. It induces a histological healing profile of the wound. This causes improvement of the skin by way of fast reestablishment of the normal skin and reduces skin inflammation by stopping the infection-fighting white blood cells from reaching the part of your body which is prone to infections.
