PMU microblading, also known as permanent makeup microblading, has become increasingly popular over the years due to the convenience of having effortlessly perfect eyebrows all the time. However, one concern that has arisen amongst people who have undergone the procedure is the risk of scarring. This blog post delves into the reasons behind the scarring that can occur in PMU microblading.
PMU microblading involves inserting pigment into the skin using a handheld device called a microblade. The blade creates tiny incisions in the skin and injects the pigment, giving the appearance of natural-looking eyebrow hairs. While the procedure is generally safe and effective, there are several factors that can lead to scarring.
One reason why PMU microblading can cause scarring is due to human error. The skill of the technician, the quality of the pigment, and the hygiene of the equipment are all crucial factors that can affect the outcome of the procedure. If the technician's hand slips or they use too much pressure, it can cause the microblade to penetrate too deep into the skin, leading to a scar. Additionally, if the pigment is not of high quality, it may not be absorbed properly into the skin, leading to clumping and scarring. Lastly, if the equipment used is not properly sterilized, it can introduce bacteria into the skin, leading to an infection and ultimately scarring.
Another reason why PMU microblading can cause scarring is due to individual skin characteristics. Some people have more delicate skin, making them more prone to scarring. Others may have underlying medical conditions that affect their skin's ability to heal properly, leading to scarring. Lastly, some people may have an allergic reaction to the pigment or the anesthetic used during the procedure, leading to a severe reaction and scarring.
In conclusion, PMU microblading can cause scarring for various reasons. However, with proper precautions and thorough research, it is possible to minimize the risk of scarring. It is important to choose a qualified technician with a good reputation, inquire about their pigments and equipment, and most importantly, listen to your body and seek medical attention if any concerns arise. By doing so, one can enjoy beautiful and natural-looking eyebrows without sacrificing their skin's health.
