What is microblading?

Microblading is an increasingly common beauty treatment involving a face tattoo technique. It is a semi-permanent fix for thin eyebrows. It is popular because it is long-lasting, natural-looking and relatively inexpensive.

It involves pigment being implanted under the skin. The procedure is usually performed with a manual hand-held tool rather than a machine. Hair-like strokes mimic natural eyebrow hairs

Microblading infections

Like other invasive cosmetic treatments, microblading carries a risk.

People can for instance suffer an allergic reaction to the ink. This can result in painful blistering, rashes, blemishes and swelling.

There is also the risk of infection, meaning that health and hygiene standards must high.

It is therefore important that microblading is carried out by a trained professional in safe and sterile conditions following a full review of the risks.

Microblading gone wrong

In addition to the risks of infection and disease, there is also the chance that the procedure itself might be carried out to a poor standard. This can result is an unsatisfactory cosmetic appearance. And because the procedure is semi-permanent any errors can have a devastating impact on the customer.

One common cause of dissatisfaction is the shape and size of the eyebrows. The practitioner may be able to fix this during a touch-up session, but problems are not always easily rectifiable.

Another concern is uneven eyebrows. People want their eyebrows to be symmetrical. If the final effect leaves the customer with uneven or unaligned eyebrows then this will lead to understandable distress. 

Colour is also a frequent issue, particularly where the eyebrows are much darker than the customer requested.
