Does Microblading Damage Your Skin?

Microblading is similar to the tattooing process and uses color matched pigment to enhance the fullness and shape of the eyebrows. Considering this is semi-permanent and does penetrate the skin, a concern some people have when thinking about microblading is, “Does microblading damage your skin?” Let’s look into this question more to find out how the average person’s skin reacts to the treatment.   One difference between microblading and tattooing is that microblading does not go as deep into the skin. Therefore, the risk of major scarring is less significant. However, pinpoint bleeding and many of the side effects seen with tattoos can also happen with microblading. It does do some basic surface damage, but nothing that your body cannot heal.   There is an extremely small risk of permanent skin damage. However, this is extremely unlikely for most people and the people more susceptible to this are those who tend to develop raised scarring or those with certain skin disorders. In these cases, your microblading artist may recommend a different brow enhancement.   To learn more about Bellevue microblading and schedule a consultation, call us at 425-775-3561.
