Does Microblading Damage The Skin?

Microblading is a form of permanent makeup that uses tattoo techniques to deposit ink under the first few layers of skin. While more invasive than other brow enhancements such as makeup, brow tints, and brow lamination, it is still non-surgical and not too painful. One concern patients often ask about is, “Does microblading damage the skin?”

In a way, yes, microblading does damage the skin. However, it is temporary and less than a traditional tattoo would. In order to provide the semi-permanent results that microblading is known for, it must break the skin. While this may cause some minor pinpoint bleeding, it generally stops before you leave the office.

As you heal, you will need to monitor for signs of infection and prevent situations that could increase the chances of infection. As far as permanent damage, microblading is unlikely to cause any permanent damage to the skin. If you are prone to keloid or hypertrophic scars, you may not be an ideal candidate for microblading treatment.
