Considering how eyeliner embroidery is trending nowadays I’m sure you’ll be tempted at some point to get the treatment done for yourself. After all, why not? It cuts down so much time when getting ready that can be significant in the long run. Though the only thing that might stop you from getting one is to wonder if this beauty treatment will be painful for your eyes. If that’s your concern, then read this to find out more.
For a start, eyeliner embroidery is a treatment that uses semi-permanent inks that are inserted into the eyeliner area of your eyes with tiny, disposable needles. The inks are heavily pigmented and will last up to two years before fading away and the styles are fully customizable to accentuate your features.
Since this beauty treatment involves the eyelids and tiny needles naturally there will be a concern if this can be painful for the eyes. Truthfully, it can be painful as tiny needles are used to insert the pigments into the skin, what more the skin at the eye area is the most sensitive. Hence, why numbing cream is applied before and during the procedure liberally and you can ask for reapplication as soon as you start to feel the pain, all in order to make the procedure as comfortable as possible.
The use of numbing cream is important in the beauty treatment your esthetician will ask if you have allergies to any of the ingredients in the numbing cream, to ensure that the product can be used throughout the procedure.
What About After The Procedure, Will I Feel The Pain Afterwards?
By right, it shouldn’t be painful and instead just a minor inconvenience as the treated area starts its healing process while the pigments settle in the epidermis layer of your skin. Within three days after the procedure, your skin will start to form a thin film that will peel and fall out on its own in a week.
The key is to ensure that you take care of the embroidered area diligently from the first 48 hours after the procedure to minimize any pain or discomfort while ensuring the treated area heals for a perfect eyeliner embroidery.
That means keeping the treated area away from water, fingertips, and products except the aftercare cream provided by your esthetician.
There’s also a potential for side effects to occur such as itchiness, swelling (the most common), or mild tingling sensation but this is normal and varies between individuals and should go away in a week. However, in rare cases where there’s bruising, infection, or your skin develops an allergic reaction to the pigments you should contact your doctor and your esthetician no matter how or when it occurs.
To conclude, eyeliner embroidery is a procedure that’s virtually painless and there’s no cause for concern for pain issues as numbing cream is supplied liberally for the procedure. And with proper aftercare, you won’t feel any pain in the embroidered area but instead, allow the pigments to settle in, and show up in perfectly-lined eyes done beautifully.
