Microblading Gone Wrong? Do your research.
Microblading is one of the exciting new beauty trends, as women are showing off their perfect eyebrows all over social media.
But what happens when you pay the wrong price? Local 4 Defender Karen Drew reported the story of a woman who had a significant warning to everyone looking to get the procedure done.
The Metro Detroit woman, who wanted to stay anonymous, said she regrets getting the procedure done because she ended up in the hospital. She’s embarrassed by what happened that’s why she didn’t want to share her identity; however, she wants to warn others.
When she walked out of the permanent makeup clinic after the procedure, her brows looked just how she imagined.
“It looked great,” she said. “I was happy.”
But later, redness started setting in.
With each passing day, she got a little redder and more swollen. Within a few days, she started getting lumps and white bumps on her eyebrows.
The pain and swelling started to increase with each passing day; she said.
Clickondetroit.com First reported the story on April, 30th.
“Going to urgent care, they diagnosed me with cellulitis on my face, gave me antibiotic and sent me on my way,” she said.
“When they admitted me, they put me on an IV bag antibiotic and then, the next morning, they started me on steroids for the remainder of the time I was there,” she said. She ended up staying three days in the hospital.
“I was terrified,” she said. “I didn’t know. My face is swelling up. My eyes are closing. I’m thinking, ‘I don’t know what’s going to happen.’”
Sound scary?! Well, it is. Read on of why this happened, don’t let it scare you though, it is easily preventable.

She was told not to wash her eyebrows for at least three days which is a BIG “NO NO.”
