LASER TATTOO REMOVAL
Treatment For Permanent Makeup Removal
Permanent eye makeup promises lasting beauty and a fuss-free routine. When the results are good, cosmetic tattoos help you put your best face forward 24-7. When things go wrong, even if it’s by just a fraction of an inch, it’s a blow to your self-esteem.
Permanent makeup removal can help. People seek tattoo removal when the pigment in the permanent makeup drifts, changes hue or simply doesn’t look right. Laser technology is used to remove various types of ink, including permanent eye makeup, lip liner tattoos and tattooed eyebrows.
You don’t have to live with a look that makes you unhappy. Perhaps your cosmetic tattoo was applied by an unskilled technician. Maybe it’s the wrong color. It could look smudged, crooked or overdone.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Our technician uses a picosecond laser for permanent makeup removal, cosmetic tattoo removal, and other types of laser tattoo removal projects. The tattoo removal laser breaks pigment with bursts of light that reach beneath the surface of the skin. After a treatment, your body will flush out the ink, eventually eliminating the particles from your system.
Before permanent eye makeup removal, we anesthetize your eyes with drops so your eyes are not harmed, and the procedure is painless.
How Long Does It Take To Remove Permanent Makeup?
Tattoo pigment removal may require more than one session. Because permanent makeup, and other cosmetic tattoos cover a small area and is generally a single color, you may need only one procedure.
Treatments last about 20 minutes. Your permanent makeup will fade after the treatment, continuing to lighten for several weeks. During a follow-up visit, we’ll assess the changes and recommend further treatments if needed.
How Long Does It Take to Recover From Laser Treatments?
Most people return to their normal routines immediately after a treatment. Some people experience minor irritation from the procedure.
Eyebrow Pigment Removal Process
Before treating an entire brow, we recommend coming in for a free consultation and allowing us to do a test spot with the laser. The test spot will give us an idea if or how the pigment may oxidize or change color and will allow us to craft a treatment plan for removal or lightening of the pigment. We recommend scheduling your first appointment for a full treatment about 3-4 weeks after the test spot has healed.
The picosecond lasers we use to remove permanent and semi-permanent pigment do not affect the hair follicles. Immediately after treatment, the hair may temporarily turn a whitish color, however, this reaction usually subsides after a few hours and the hair returns to its normal color.
