During my consultations with new clients, we cover a ton of information. From what to do before and after treatments, to desired color, and shape and everywhere in between. Keeping my clients informed and educated about their microblading choice is extremely important to me. However, one question I find many new clients are initially hesitant to ask, but desperately want to know is: “Does microblading hurt?”

Does microblading hurt?”

Firstly, let me say that this is what consultations are for. I am here to quell and fears, concerns, and answer every question to make you comfortable about your microblading treatment.

So, when you ask, “does microblading hurt”, is certainly is not the first time I’ve heard that question and it is a fair one that I am glad to answer.

Tools of the Trade

Since microblading utilizes micro blades during the process, most assume that microblading will be painful, similar to that of a tattoo. Not so and here’s why: the microblading pen holds ten to twelve very delicate, medical grade micro blades. Rather then penetrating deep layers of skin, the pen instead applies pigment on the epidermis layer, the uppermost layers of the skin. Because of this, fine, natural, and artistic strokes are created imitating hair realistically and beautifully. I invite you look closely at the gorgeous, natural results on my Instagram page by clicking here. And note, I will be discussing more in depth on the tools I utilize in up coming blogs. So, stay tuned!

So, Does Microblading Hurt?

No, and certainly nothing at all like the tattooing process. However, many describe it as a sensation or slight discomfort. Because I want my clients as comfortable as possible, I also apply a professional topical anesthetic. The specific product I utilize in my treatments is called Blue Gel Anesthetic. This is a safe, yet extremely effective anesthetic especially used in procedures and treatments like microblading. It desensitizes the area to ensure comfort during the microblading process. As well, Blue Gel contains a vascular constrictor, meaning it prevents swelling in the area of application. It is my ultimate goal to not only give you the natural, beautiful eyebrows you envision for yourself, but do so with you feeling completely comfortable and confident from beginning to end.
