Not usually: Usually, local anesthesia is administered to properly numb the area. Injection may be a bit uncomfortable but once toe is numb, you should not feel any pain.

Toe will be numb: Before the ingrown nail procedure, your doctor will numb your toe with an anesthetic. This is done using a needle so there might be a brief moment of discomfort. Once your toe is numb, you will not feel anything sharp or painful for the rest of the procedure. This numbness will last around 6-8 hours.
