Ah, microblading. Lena Dunham swears the treatment is behind her two "perfect, multidimensional" brows. It went so well for Bella Thorne, she documented the whole thing on Snapchat. But not all microblading (a.k.a. brow tattooing) sessions go according to plan.

A Good Brow Brush Goes a Long Way: <p>“Being Persian has its perks—like the full, thick brows and lashes. But keeping them looking on point is really difficult because they grow out so fast! I normally trim my brows once every three weeks and pluck the middle every five days to prevent a uni-brow situation. I don’t use any products but I brush them out every morning with Lancôme’s Eyebrow Reshaper Brush so they don't look too messy.” —<a href=Yasmine Sima, model

"I ended up with a severe infection from clinic and the skin was just falling away and my eyes blew up," she wrote, referencing a series of photos. Coats then claimed that the eyebrow specialist was very "rushed, going in and out of the room attending to other clients during my procedure and also doing another eyebrow tattoo at the same time," and that she didn't switch into new gloves in between clients. (We've reached out to the salon for comment.) If you can barely sit through a PG-13 horror movie without squirming in your seat, well, you might want to stop while you're ahead.

I Tried Microblading my Eyebrows and Here's What Happened

  I Tried Microblading my Eyebrows and Here's What Happened For those who aren't naturally gifted with thick, full eyebrows, there's a service that can help: microblading. Microblading is a treatment where a technician tattoos eyebrows onto your face using a small tool with nine tiny blades. It takes two visits under the knife (and roughly $700), but the promise is that you'll wake up with perfect eyebrows every morning for one to three years. Because my morning routine consists of trying to fill in my eyebrows while my baby grips my legs yelling to be held, I decided to try it out.

But alas, not all microblading (a.k.a. brow tattooing) sessions go according to plan. While the salon has yet to respond to Coats' claims, Umbreen Sheikh, an eyebrow specialist and founder of Wink Brow Bar, says that these kinds of reactions could be the result of an allergy to the numbing cream used

By Coats' account, what happened next is the stuff of nightmares: The area around her eyebrows swelled, getting redder and more inflamed by the day, until the skin on her face eventually peeled off onto her pillow. "My eyes were so swollen I couldn't drive," Coats told the Mirror. "I couldn't even take my children to school because of the swelling, the pain, and the pus in my eyes. It was awful."

While the salon has yet to respond to Coats' claims, Umbreen Sheikh, an eyebrow specialist and founder of Wink Brow Bar, says that these kinds of reactions could be the result of an allergy to the numbing cream used beforehand or the actual pigment. "The most important thing is to choose a microblade artist very carefully and book a full consultation prior to the treatment." Another piece of wisdom: Avoid cheap sales or discounts. "An experienced specialist can charge upwards of $1000 and clients sometimes try to get a 'deal,' but this can lead to a horrible result that is potentially life-changing," she adds.
