Is Microblading Painful?

By August 29, 2022 No Comments
Microblading is a growing brow enhancement procedure that grows in popularity every year. Since it provides semi-permanent results, many patients understand that it is going to be a more involved procedure than other brow enhancements such as brow lamination. So, let’s look at one of the most commonly asked questions, “Is microblading painful?” Microblading is technically a form of tattooing. While it does not use exactly the same technology or go as deeply into the skin, it can hurt. Face tattoos are often considered among the most painful. However, our microblading artists use numbing cream to limit the pain felt during the procedure. Overall, patients feel little pain and only slight discomfort during their microblading treatment. In general, microblading is less painful than a tattoo, even without numbing cream. Though, at the Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, we tend to recommend that all patients get numbing cream because it can be uncomfortable otherwise. It is a two-hour procedure on average, so numbing cream takes the edge off. To learn more and schedule a consultation, call us at 425-775-3561.
