Most women want their eyebrows looking ‘on fleek’ and many go to extreme lengths to achieve that – but for one Australian woman, things didn’t go exactly as planned.

Amanda Coats (43) was left traumatised after her eyebrow feathering procedure went horribly wrong.

The operation involves doctors using a tiny blade to make small incisions in the skin before inserting ink – to give eyebrows a more fuller and enhanced look.

"I had never had this procedure done before so I didn't know what to expect,” says the mom of three, “I was so scared.”

But when Amanda woke up the next morning her skin was red, puffy and had peeled off on her pillow.

She claims her eyes turned pussy and started tearing because of an infection she contracted at the Skincare Laser Clinic.

"My eyes were so swollen I couldn't drive – I couldn't even take my children to school because of the swelling, the pain and the pus in my eyes. It was awful,” she says.

Amanda spent a further $1600 (R17000) on doctor’s bills to try and sort out her brows.

In a Facebook post that went viral, Amanda said that the beauty therapist who performed her procedure was in a rush and attended to other patients while working on her brows. She also failed to change her gloves.

Amanda’s biggest fear is that she will be left with scars or other long-term effects.

The clinic denies claims saying that Amanda was having a “reaction” to the ink pigment and prescribed medication because of her allergies.

"Based off feedback from industry experts, Skincare Laser Clinic (SLC) believes the adverse reaction was due to an allergy to one of the supplementary products used, says Iain Cleveland, owner of the clinic.

The makeup artist is now speaking up so that woman won’t go through the same humiliation that she did – and urges women to do their research before having any procedure done.

"If I can help one person, then I don't mind how bad the photos of me look.

“I want to make sure no one has to go through what I went through and that's the reason I'm speaking out.”
