Want perfect-looking eyebrows without spending hours every day filling them in? Then microblading might be for you. Through a series of intricate and tiny incisions in the skin, your eyebrows will look full and vibrant.
To sweeten the deal, these excellent results are semi-permanent, requiring only minor adjustments every year or so. However, not every microblading procedure is completely painless. True beauty has a price. The individual small incisions made during the procedure cause some discomfort and, for some individuals, significant pain. Fortunately, there are products that can help you. Numbing creams can effectively target the pain receptors on your skin, so you can enjoy the benefits of the microblading procedure without getting sore in your eyebrows.
Why you should use a topical cream
Topical numbing creams can be very helpful, both during a microblading procedure and after. A topical cream is a cream that is aimed directly at the specific area of the body or skin you are applying it to. For example, if you are undergoing a microblading procedure, you should apply the cream directly to your eyebrow. The cream will then seep into the skin and numb the pain receptors. This prevents the pain signals from reaching your brain, essentially leaving you feeling no pain from the targeted area. When you apply an anesthetic cream before or during a microblading procedure, you will not experience any discomfort. This will help you feel more relaxed and at ease during the procedure. Since microblading is a very complicated and delicate process, you have to stop the whole procedure. Just one slip of the blade can significantly affect the effectiveness of the procedure. When you apply anesthetic cream, you won't flinch or move, so the procedure will be over faster and give much better results.
What type of numbing cream should you use?
When choosing a product to significantly reduce or eliminate discomfort during your microblading procedure, look for active ingredients known for their effective local anesthetic properties. Lidocaine is a common active ingredient found in high quality products that have earned an excellent reputation for its effectiveness. Dental and medical professionals regularly use lidocaine as a local anesthetic for procedures in their offices. When you choose a numbing cream that contains lidocaine or a similar active local anesthetic, you can rest assured that you will not experience any unwanted painful sensations in your eyebrows.
Effective use of numbing cream
If you are applying a numbing cream for a microblading procedure, you should do it before your appointment. Clean your eyebrow area with warm water and soap, then take a soft cotton swab or swab and dip it in the numbing cream. Make sure you've applied a thick layer to the entire area to be treated, then put some plastic wrap over your eyebrow and leave it on for about thirty minutes. You should feel the numbing sensation begin to set in within about 15 minutes of application (depending on the cream). When the targeted area feels completely numb, you can gently wipe the remaining cream off your eyebrow and attend your appointment. You will not feel any discomfort during the microblading procedure and the area will remain numb for at least a few hours or even longer, depending on your skin type.
