Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Following the iontophoresis treatment an IV will be inserted into the treatment area and the amount of pain will be assessed using the median visual analog pain scale (VAS). [ Time Frame: 4 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Monitor the nature and frequency of adverse events associated with the iontophoretic device through observation during treatment. [ Time Frame: 4 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Determining the duration of anesthesia through standard pin prick testing. [ Time Frame: 4 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 90
