Is my microblading infected?

After a cosmetic brow tattoo procedure, it is normal to experience some mild symptoms as part of the healing process. These can include:

  1. Mild redness and swelling around the treated area: This is a common reaction to the procedure and should subside within a few days.

  2. Slight tenderness or discomfort: The brow area may feel slightly tender to the touch, similar to a mild sunburn. This discomfort typically diminishes within a few days.

  3. Minor scabbing or flaking: As the healing process progresses, you may notice small scabs or flakes forming over the treated area. It's important not to pick or scratch these scabs, as it can affect the final results.

  4. Temporary darkening or intensity: Immediately after the procedure, the color of the tattooed brows may appear darker or more intense than desired. This is normal and is expected to fade to the desired shade as the healing progresses.

Remember, these symptoms are usually temporary and part of the normal healing process.

However, If you happen to notice any of these early signs such as excessive pain, prolonged redness or swelling. Here are some simple tips to help you along the way:

  1. Keep calm and reach out for help: Remember, the chances of an infection are incredibly rare, but if you notice any unusual symptoms, don't hesitate to seek medical professional advice.

  2. Apply a touch of antibiotic cream: If needed, a suitable antibiotic cream can work wonders in addressing those early symptoms. Just a little dab can go a long way in keeping things in check.

  3. Maintain good hygiene practices: By practicing good hygiene, like washing your hands and keeping the area clean and dry, you'll give those pesky bacteria a run for their money.

  4. Keep an eye out for any changes: Such as increased redness, swelling, or discomfort. Stay vigilant and monitor the treated area closely.

Remember, these tips are simply precautionary measures and you'll be well on your way to a happy and healthy cosmetic brow tattoo journey.
