So, How Safe Is It?

Microblading is generally considered safe and most people who get it done do not experience problems. But, as with any procedure, there are risks that you should be aware of before you choose to go through with it.

First of all — what exactly is microblading? The term “microblading” refers to a type of semi-permanent cosmetic tattoo in which a technician uses a tool with a tiny needle to draw in eyebrow hairs. The technician uses the tool to make tiny cuts in the skin and fills them in with color to create a richer, fuller brow. The tattoo itself usually lasts about a year.

What are the Risks?

Possible risks you should know about and discuss with your technician beforehand include:

  • Infection — there is always a small risk of infection, as with any procedure. You could be at risk for infection if the technician doesn’t properly sterilize the equipment or uses dirty water – easily preventable by using an experienced technician. The risk for infection is low and is most always avoided by ensuring you choose an artist who follows clean and safe practices.
  • Allergic reaction — some people develop allergic reactions to the ink itself. This is very rare, but can happen and is easily treated. Signs of allergic reaction include red, itchy skin and rash. Your doctor will likely prescribe a steroid or antihistamine.
  • Granulomas — this is rare, but some people develop inflammatory knots around the brow area (called granulomas). This sometimes occurs months or even years after the procedure.
