How to use Buzzy

ice wings

For best pain relief, the wings must be frozen solid to avoid absorbing vibration. Wings will stay frozen for about 10 minutes at room temperature.

your wings

For the Mini, place the hole in the ice wings over the hook on the back of Buzzy. For the personal, slide the ice wings through the elastic strap on the back of Buzzy.

Buzzy on

Once Buzzy is being held in place either by a strap, tourniquet, or by hand, press the button or switch on the top of Buzzy. The Buzzy Mini has an automatic shut-off feature after 3 minutes.


Place Buzzy directly on the site of the injection for 30-60 seconds, then move up (with power switch up/farthest away from site) and hold/secure. Buzzy works best when it’s between the pain and the brain.

An award-winning combination

Buzzy uses natural “gate control” pain relief by confusing the body’s own nerves, thereby dulling or eliminating sharp pain. In the same way that rubbing a bumped elbow helps stop the hurt, Buzzy controls sharp pain. The premise is that when nerves receive non-painful signals such as vibration or cold, the brain closes the gate on pain signals.

The second part of Buzzy’s efficacy, and the reason it can help even when distant from the site of procedural pain, is called Descending Noxious Inhibitory Control, or DNIC. DNIC is another effective mechanism of pain control that uses the brain’s ability to dampen out unwanted signals. Instead of happening right where the nerves are, though, an intense degree of cold can work anywhere on the body. In scientific terms, intense cold activates a supraspinal modulation raising the body’s overall pain threshold.
