Does microblading hurt?

The pain level is considered to be very mild, with some clients saying it does not hurt at all. Everyone is different, but most people say it feels similar to getting threaded. While you fill out your paperwork, I will apply a topical anesthetic containing lidocaine to the area. After layer 1 of the microblading is complete, I will apply an anesthetic gel that will be better able to sink in now that first layer of micro cuts is complete.

After the procedure, redness and slight swelling in the area is normal.  The feeling may be similar to a light sunburn.  Clients can take Tylenol but not aspirin or ibuprofen.
