Microblading brows: How painful is it?

How painful is microblading?

Let’s measure pain on a scale of 1 to 5; With 1 being the lowest, and 5 being the highest amount of pain felt during the procedure. With proper numbing and preparation of the skin, most clients will report a 0.5 at the beginning and a 3 towards the end of their service.

On the other hand, some people don’t feel anything the entire time. It comes down to how the person’s body takes to topical anesthetic. For instance, if you don’t do well in dental procedures involving anaesthetic, chances are your skin won’t take well to topical anaesthetic used for microblading brows.

In addition, personal pain tolerance also has a lot to do it. 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.

Medications and Microblading

There are some medications that add to skin sensitivity. If you are taking any medication we recommend talking to your pharmacist. Some medications are a contraindication to microblading, for example, blood thinners.

Blood thinners are used by people that have high blood pressure and/or are prone to blood clots. They thin the blood which causes you to bleed more during microblading which can in turn result in less retention of pigment.

Does microblading ruin your natural brows?

Microblading does not affect the current growth of the brow. It can however stimulate hair growth because of the layers that we are cutting into. Some of our clients report new hair growth where hair growth had been lost.
