Microblading Pain Level

microblading pain level tolerance

How long does microblading pain last?

Good news! Effective numbing creams have become more accessible to estheticians overtime. As a result, microblading pain has been greatly minimized.

Your microblading appointment starts by reviewing your medical history to ensure there are no contraindications that may complicate the service. After, your technician begins to map out your brows. Once you approve your new brow design, numbing cream is applied 30 minutes before start time.

How painful is microblading without numbing cream?

Microblading pain is very high without an effective numbing cream.

I always thought it would be funny to film a commercial where a foreign spy is strapped down to a bed while being tortured for information via microblading without numbing cream.

My personal experience

I first had microblading in 2015. The numbing creams available to estheticians were not very effective back then. The numbing cream would wear off quicker than expected and you’d be in pain shortly into the procedure. We had to stop often to reapply numbing cream.

But I just had to bare the pain, because I didn’t want to stop halfway through my new brow design. I survived that first microblading procedure: The pain was over. The healing process was fine with the exception of a tingling/itchy sensation while in a hot car during the healing period.

I had microblading again in 2019. The numbing cream used was different, it lasted much longer. While the experience was not 100% pain-free, it was night and day when compared to my first experience. It was very tolerable, even for a big baby like me.

Creepy…

If anyone reading has ever had laser eye surgery or “lasik”, they’ll know you don’t feel a thing, but you smell your eye burning. Similarly, especially at the beginning, you don’t feel a thing, but you hear your skin being sliced open. Cringe!

How can I ease the pain?

To decrease pain level, we recommend following the precautions prior to your appointment. Examples include avoiding all forms of caffeine, and getting enough sleep the night before. For women specifically, menstruation may cause extra sensitivity.

When Lash Lifts Go Wrong

lash lift gone wrong

Can you redo a bad lash lift?

What constitutes a bad Lash Lift? While a Lash Lift is a simple service that delivers instant results in a short amount of time, there are a few things that can go wrong.

Why is my lash lift so curly?

Most times getting a Lash Lift is a time of joy! As Service Providers, we have different size options to choose from based on the length of your natural eyelashes. Typically, we select small pads for smaller eyelashes. But sometimes, the Service Provider will select a smaller pad to achieve a tighter curl, especially when dealing with very straight lashes. Sometimes the risk does not pay off and the curl can be too tight making it difficult to wear.

In these instances, you can only wait for the curl to relax on its own. At the very least an overly tight curl at the beginning will last you an extra couple weeks longer.

How do you fix frizzy eyelashes after lash lift?

Over-processing is another thing that can go wrong during a Lash Lift. Over-processing can happen when the chemical solution is left too long, or the eyelashes are lifted too soon after a Lash Lift.

Fixing frizzy lashes comes down to restoring the eyelashes. Strengthening your lashes can be as simple as brushing them with a spoolie after washing your face in the morning and evening. Some people apply nourishing creams or even vaseline on the lashes. However, we recommend against this as it can cause styes in the eyes.

If you would like to apply a nourishing substance on the lashes prior to your Lash Lift, we recommend something that is specific for the eyelashes, such as Adoreyes Lash Enhancing Serum.

Why are my eyelids so puffy after lash lift?

An allergic reaction is another thing that can go wrong in a Lash Lift.

It is rare for reactions to occur as the products are kept strictly on the lashes. People who have sensitivity to latex are not recommended to have the service, as the adhesive used does contain latex.

If you have ever reacted to artificial lash glue used for strip lashes, you are at risk of having a reaction. Typical allergic reaction will cause the eyes to swell for up to 72 hours.
