Does Microblading hurt?


Yes and no, there is some discomfort even when there is numbing. For someone who is sensitive and has low pain tolerance, microblading will feel like scratching skin that has been sunburned while some people actually fall asleep during microblading sessions. Even though a microblading session can take 3-4 hours, majority of the time is used for design. Conservatively speak, the actual microblading strokes would take around 30-40 minutes to apply onto the skin. For many people, it is worth to have 30 minutes of scratch in exchange for a beautiful eyebrow that last several years.




Is semi-permanent makeup procedure safe?


Yes, semi-permanent makeup procedure is safe for those who qualify. Some people have health issue which cannot have permanent makeup procedures done. Also you will need to look for places that has license issued by department health with artists who are certified by one of the permanent cosmetics organizations such as American Academy of Micropigmentation/ Society of Permanent Cosmetics Professional.
