When we talk about any skin treatment or changes to our natural looks, we must keep in mind that those changes will never be as realistic. The same is microblading; it is a beauty enhancer of their patchy brows for many. But the decision has to be taken very wisely, knowing that this treatment isn’t for everyone and has pros and cons too.

If we survey the treatment leaving scars on your skin, we find different results. A group of celebrities and artists claim to have left the business due to damage or scars microblading leave behind. According to an artist, “there is no such thing as good microblading”. It is a traumatic procedure to see cutting and shoving pigment into the skin, a recipe for disaster.


Microblading is a semi-permanent procedure. However, the deep blade cuts are there to stay for life. Even in the hands of the best surgeon, any blade will leave scars. It is often observed that microblading turns red and leaves the skin red too. One can always keep the brows looking fresh with touchups. But it doesn’t take long for the skin to start looking dull and full of scars. The scar tissue no longer accepts pigments. All that is left are scars.

Once your skin is scarred, it is done. No laser removals, no saline flushes, and makeup will make it look the same.

So YES, this is one school of thought and group of artists talking about the after-effects and leaving scars behind microblading.

We talk about the second group of entirely confident and satisfied artists about the scars going away. Even with this group of people, one thing is for sure this process is not for EVERYONE. So you are the one who has to take decisions wisely and after a lot of surveys.

As we already know that this procedure can be a little uncomfortable for some skin types, like sensitive skin. Most artists numb the skin around to make it feel less painful. Once brows are done, there will be very little redness left. And so will be the healing process. It will differ from person to person.

Before getting micro-blading done, you MUST have a detailed meeting with your expert artist. They will help you decide if you are fit and healthy to take this treatment or not. As we talked about earlier, there are a few exceptions with which you shouldn’t be getting this treatment. One of those conditions is, being prone to keloid formation.

First, what is KELOID? When skin is injured, fibrous tissue called scar tissues forms around the wound to repair and protect the injury. In some cases, scar tissues grow excessively, forming smooth, hard growths called keloids. They can be much larger than the wound and can affect any part of the body.

There is a slight but real chance for microblading to form keloids, but only in those prone to developing them. If you are inclined to create raised scars in the procedure area, you will risk forming keloid from the tattoo. In such cases, it will be highly recommended to avoid this procedure. It is better to be safe than sorry when dealing with brows or anything around your eyes.

The bottom line is that you must look for an artist who is an expert and are well aware of what they are doing. As long as your artist is aware of what they are doing, has plenty of experience, and knows to stay in the superficial layers of the skin, then the risk of complication is shallow.

There are only two exceptions. Suppose your artist goes too deep into the skin during the procedure. And the second one is related to complications like infection after the procedure. Infection can cause inflammation and increase the damage done to the surrounding tissues. If the infection spreads deep inside the skin, then the chances of a scar may increase. However, this complication is infrequent and does not happen often.

Scarring is usually not a problem with microblading unless something goes wrong with the healing process or if your artist goes too deep into the skin. If done by a trained and experienced artist or aesthetician, microblading should never leave scars.
