Microblading In Singapore: Is it Painful?
The number one question in the minds of my Singapore clients- is microblading painful?
Microblading has been going on in the last few years here in Singapore. It is best for people with thin brows as well as brow correction. However, one concern in Singapore is that microblading can be painful. Most people feel a slight pressure along with discomfort but less painful when compared to tattooing due to the use of numb cream. Of course, it also depends on our own tolerance towards pain as well as your artist’s experience. Thus, we will talk about the steps that you can take to reduce pain as well as swelling after the session.
Microblading In Singapore
Microblading eyebrow is it painful?
As the title implies, microblading creates hundreds of tiny cuts on your brow. Afterwards, pigments filled these little cuts. We also mentioned earlier that microblading is gaining popularity over the last few years in Singapore. Hence the concern over whether microblading is painful is getting more attention in Singapore.
Most artist will apply numb cream before starting microblading, so instead of feeling painful from the cutting blade what you will feel is the blade scratching your skin. This scratching can also be heard during the process. You may feel the scratching on your skin over and over again if you have low pain tolerance. Hence be sure to speak to your artist about the use of more numb cream before microblading if you are fearful of pain.
It may take 30mins or more before the numbing cream effect starts. At JPro Beauty, we take the extra effort to make sure the numbing effect is in place before we start microblading in order to reduce any pain. As the artist goes on with the process, cuts are added on top of or near to existing cuts. During this phase, your skin will begin to feel irritated or burned.
From here if you feel any discomfort, inform our artist and we will re-apply the numb cream.
Although there will be some mild discomfort and skin irritation expected during microblading. Therefore we encourage you to do the followings:
- Refrain from sun-tanning three days before eyebrow embroidery
- No waxing 2-3 days before eyebrow embroidery
- Avoid abrasive skin treatment two weeks before eyebrow embroidery
Microblading pain vs Tattoo Pain Which is more painful?
Microblading is semi-permanent and done on the outermost layer of the skin. The use of numb cream also makes it painless, unlike tattooing.

It’s very normal for the area to feel irritated or tender about a day after microblading and your skin will be a little red but not bruised. As it heals, you may feel like you’ve had a sunburn for a couple of days.
Your eyebrows will appear dark and sharp immediately following treatment because the micro-pigment has yet to settle fully in your skin. Pigment colour will fade gradually as part of the healing process. When you see that the skin starts to peel like dandruff or turning dry, it is a sign of healing. Do not be alarmed and refrain from picking/peeling/scratching the brows. Let the skin flakes drop off naturally. The new brow will look light during the first two weeks as the pigment is absorbed in the deeper layers of the skin. The skin cells will push the pigment up to the top skin layers, and once the healed, you will be delighted with the new, natural-looking eyebrows.
Microblading is Not Painful
Numb cream is most often used during microblading to reduce any pain in Singapore. Many people can still feel discomfort during the process, and in the days following, is expected. After reviewing the microblading provider and following both pre- and post-care advice, you can expect a fairly painless and safe appointment. A provider certified by the world-renowned academy will have more credibility and training in microblading, and hence an excellent place to begin.
Henceforth, whether microblading is painful depends on the numb cream used, the experience of the provider to know when to start the procedure once the numbing sets in as well as when to reapply them when the numb effect is beginning to wear off.
