About Cosmetic Makeup Removal

Microblading is a popular technique in which the artist delicately applies pigment in hair-like strokes beneath the surface of the skin. Microblading uses a static blade rather than a tattoo machine, penetrating the skin to an average depth of only 0.08mm to 0.15mm. At this depth, the pigment is deposited into the border between the epidermis and dermis.

Tattoo ink and microblading pigment are very different substances that react differently over time. Microblading uses special pigment that is designed to fade after a certain length of time before dissipating altogether. This method often yields natural-looking results and can last for about three years. In the event of a mistake during application or if the semi-permanent ink changes colors to an undesirable tone, individuals can opt for eyebrow laser tattoo removal to eliminate the unwanted ink. Microblading removal generally takes fewer treatments than permanent make-up (PMU) or tattoos on the rest of the body.

Permanent Makeup (PMU) and traditional eyebrow tattooing on the other hand, is applied with a tattoo machine. The ink in tattooed eyebrows is deposited much deeper in the skin, to an average depth of 1mm. At this depth, pigmentation is deposited into the middle layer of the skin - the dermis and is more permanent. The removal of these tattoos generally requires more treatments than microblading. Clients often wonder whether laser tattoo removal causes hair loss, regardless of the ink type or application method.

Here's the scoop: Laser tattoo removal using Picosecond lasers does NOT result in hair loss. However, it's worth noting that external hair might get singed or turn white temporarily during the procedure. No need to fret though, as this is a temporary effect and can be easily colored in until your hair grows back to its usual color.

During the removal process, the ink may temporarily darken after treatment before gradually lightening with subsequent sessions. Occasionally, the ink may even change color as it's being removed.

Removal Aftercare

Proper aftercare following cosmetic tattoo removal is crucial and can significantly impact your results. While we recommend you follow the same aftercare routine for traditional tattoo removal, which you can learn more about here.

The four essential aftercare guidelines specific to cosmetic tattoo removal are:
1. Stay away from direct sun exposure, tanning beds, or spray tanning on the treated area.
2. Avoid applying makeup, beauty products, or topical medication to the treated area during the initial week post-treatment.
3. Refrain from hair removal, chemical peels, Botox, fillers, or other injections during the initial week post-treatment.
4. Hydrate.
