Does Microblading Your Eyebrows Hurt?
If you have thin or light-colored eyebrows, or one of the many medical conditions that causes eyebrow hair loss, like alopecia, microblading may seem like a perfect solution.
Microblading is a semi-permanent cosmetic tattoo that mimics hairstrokes to fill in eyebrow areas to make them look naturally fuller. The procedure involves using a bladed tool to apply a line of semi-permanent pigment under the skin, at the perfect depth and should be done by a professional.
Microblading produces a natural-looking brow, and results can last for up to 3 years, though more frequent touch-ups are needed about every 18 months.
Although the procedure can take upward of 2 hours, most people report only feeling minor pressure or discomfort and less pain than a typical tattoo due to the use of a topical numbing cream. Of course, this will depend on your own personal pain tolerance. Some level of pain or discomfort should be expected.
If you’re considering microblading, be sure to properly research the providers in your area. Look for healed results on their page. Ask to see examples of their work. Make sure the technician will be using a topical numbing cream on the brow area to help reduce pain, AS WELL AS a secondary numbing to numb more as you go.
There are a few steps you can take to help minimize pain and swelling after the procedure. Please reach out to us for a PAINFREE experience with Microblading in San Diego or click the link here to BOOK NOW!
