Microblading Tools

Is Microblading painful?

If you are someone who suffers from eyebrow hair loss, has thin eyebrows, or are simply just tired of dealing with the hassle of filling in and keeping up with your eyebrows everyday, then microblading might be the perfect solution for you.

Microblading is a semi-permanent tattoo procedure designed to enhance the look of your eyebrows to appear more natural. It is done by creating small hair like strokes of pigment underneath the skin with a bladed tool.

But I know what you’re thinking. Does it hurt?

Short answer is, many people tend to feel little to no pain throughout the treatment. This is because we use a topical Lidocaine numbing cream that takes about 20 minutes to set in before starting the procedure. We then reapply a second layer once the skin is broken. Of course, everyone differs in levels of pain tolerance so the numbing cream may work better for some than for others.

The procedure itself can take up to 3 hours and similar to a tattoo, these cuts that are being created are breaking the skin and being filled with pigment. While some pain or discomfort is expected during microblading, the numbing cream should help with it as many people report only feeling the pressure of the blade or hearing the sounds of the blades hitting each other.

Now if no anesthetic is used, that’s a different story. Luckily, you don’t have to worry about that with us. We want you to be comfortable throughout the entire procedure!

After the procedure, your brows may feel a bit bruised or sensitive to the touch. This is because your skin has been broken and has pigment that still needs to settle in. 

But for the most part all you should feel is some slight discomfort during the process of getting your eyebrows microbladed and some tenderness following it!

So no need to worry about it being painful! Pain tolerance differs between all clients, but we provide the Lidocaine numbing twice in order to ensure the most comfortable experience for you!

Taylor was great! I was nervous to get microblading, but she was clearly an expert and put my mind at ease. I barely felt the procedure and love my new brows. Taylor is friendly and professional. Very clean and comfortable salon as well. Highly recommend.
