Microbladed eyebrows can simplify your morning routine or they can become a disastrous reminder of a bad decision.
If done correctly, microblading should never leave a scar.
Microblading is a form of manual cosmetic tattooing, in which brows are etched using fine strokes with tiny needles to mimic natural hair. The strokes are filled with medical grade pigment which creates the illusion of fullness.
Scarring has become more common with this treatment due to more inexperienced and barely qualified technicians performing this service. When microblading is done incorrectly it can leave behind faded pigment and scars.
A microblading technician should have completed appropriate high quality schooling, be certified to practice and in addition have adequate experience in permanent cosmetics.
A practitioner should be meticulous in only microblading in the superficial layer of the skin. Microblading should not result in significant bleeding as most of the blood that makes it to the top layer of the skin occurs through diffusion.
Do your research before choosing your microblading practitioner.
If you are prone to keloid scars there is always the small and rare possibility of scarring to begin with. However if you do not choose the right practitioner the chances of scarring greatly increases.
