Does Microblading Hurt? What to Expect from the Treatment

If you are looking for a way to have fuller and bolder eyebrows that require little makeup application, then you might want to consider getting semi permanent eyebrows through microblading. With microblading, needles on the end of a pen-like precision tool make tiny cuts on your skin while injecting pigment in featherlight strokes.

With this in mind, you might be wondering whether this process hurts. In this blog, we’ll explore the microblading process and whether it might hurt, particularly, we’ll cover what you can expect from the treatment.

The Length of the Procedure

A microblading treatment might last 2 to 3 hours. Some individuals might consider this 2 or 3 hours of pain – but, don’t worry! Numbing cream is used to numb the skin on your brows, so pain is kept at a minimum. However, the level of pain that you might experience can also depend on your own pain tolerance.

Does It Hurt?

While the area might be numbed prior to the procedure itself, you might still feel something pressing onto your skin. It might be a little uncomfortable, but whether you feel pain (or rather, how you define ‘pain’) might vary from person to person.

It’s key that you do your research beforehand and ensure that you are making an appointment with a licensed and safe microblading provider – like Defined Cosmetic Tattooing.

In comparison to a traditional, permanent tattoo, microblading will likely hurt less because of the numbing cream and the fact that less needles are used during the procedure.

Is There Pain After?

The pain after a microblading procedure might be similar to a sunburn – the area will likely be tender and red. It will be extremely sensitive, so it’s important that you take care of your skin properly as it heals from microblading. This will help keep any post-procedure pain minimal and reduce the likelihood of side effects that might require further attention.
