As the defining feature of the eyes, eyebrow tattoos and micoblading treatments have gain popularity in the last few years.  However, they can be restrictive, as fashions can change quickly, brow shape trends are constantly changing, and many people find themselves stuck with brows they really want to change. 

Also, sadly sometimes there is the need to remove less than satisfactory results.

What are eyebrow tattoos?
Permanent makeup has evolved immensely over the last decade; however, the traditional style looks like the eyebrow was drawn on by a thick marker and has very little resemblance to hair strokes. The ink used for traditional permanent makeup is very similar to tattoo ink and is intended to be almost as permanent.

What is Microblading?

Microblading is a fairly new cosmetic procedure that uses semi-permanent ink and a scalpel to individually draw hair-like strokes on the brow line. Microblading ink lasts at most 24 months, so while some people opt to remove their bad microblading, others might just wait it out. Microblading ink fades significantly faster than permanent makeup.

Common questions and answers;

We've summarised some of the questions we are commonly asked during the laser eyebrow removal consultation process;

Is the process the same as tattoo removal? 

Yes, its the exactly the same process as removing a tattoo.  We have provided lots of information on how tattoo removal works on the previous tab.  Please read through all the information on there in order to gain as much knowledge to the process as possible. 

Is laser treatment around the eyes safe?
We will require clients to wear protective stainless-steel eye shields during any work being done on or near the face.  Eye protection is absolutely critical and you should never consent to any laser removal near the face without it.

Will my eyebrow tattoo’s change colour after a treatment?
The success of laser eyebrow tattoo removal all depends on the type of ink used in the tattoos. Older inks are generally harder to remove than newer ones. In addition, while some inks will fade after a couple of treatments, others will oxidise.  Oxidisation occurs when the iron used in ink compounds commonly used for cosmetic tattoos is treated with a laser, turning a much darker colour instead of lighter – some will even turn black! When this occurs, the tattoo has to be treated as new, so it can take several more treatments in order for it to fade.

Is it possible just to remove part of an eyebrow tattoo?
Yes, removing selected sections of an eyebrow tattoo is possible. The laser used in our clinic is a precise tool capable of meeting your individual tattoo removal specifications.

Will I lose hair after treatment?  Or will I have to shave my hair before treatment?
You do not need to remove or shave your eyebrows before treatment with the laser.  Any hair loss resulting from laser tattoo removal treatment is temporary. Your eyebrow hair is likely to turn white following the treatment because the laser removes the pigment. Whitening is perfectly natural and is not permanent. 

If you got a cosmetic eyebrow tattoo to conceal the appearance of hair loss, the area being treated will remain hairless once the tattoo has been removed.

What to expect after your first laser removal treatment?
You can expect some pinpoint bleeding and mild to moderate swelling directly after your first treatment. The swelling will subside within 24 hours, and in the skin, should be back to normal within 2 weeks. However, the wait time between treatment sessions is between 6 and 8 weeks to ensure there is no permanent damage to the skin.

How many treatments will I need?
The time it takes the tattoo to fade completely depends on the type of ink pigment used and how it interacts with your skin.  It depends on whether you have actual eyebrow tattoos or whether you have microblading. 

In some cases 2-3 treatments are enough to remove the tattoo or to faded enough so that they are less noticeable or light enough to be corrected by an eyebrow technician.  This is because the compounds used in cosmetic tattoos do not have the same staying power as regular tattoos. 

However, in some cases, especially if the ink oxidises you will need more sessions and could need up to 8 treatments.

Does the laser treatment leave scarring?
Generally speaking, the laser itself does not cause scarring and the active Q-Switch laser which we use is designed with this in mind.  However, it is imperative that the aftercare instructions are followed and these will be explained to you.  They must be allowed to heal naturally; do not rub or pick any scabbing or blistering as this could lead to scarring.

Sometimes the original tattoo procedure will have caused scar tissue which will become noticeable when the tattoo pigment is removed.  If we think that this is the case we can advise you of this at the consultation.

How long do I have to wait before starting the laser process?
We suggest you wait anywhere between 8-12 weeks after your original tattooing or microblading treatment before beginning the removal process. All layers of the skin must heal and the ink needs time to settle into the dermis so the full pigment colour is visible in the skin.

What is the aftercare process?
Eyebrow tattoo removal aftercare is simple – the less you do, the better. It’s best to avoid any external contact with the affected area for 3 days after your treatment. Avoid touching the area and do your best to sleep on your back. Avoid exposure to water and don’t apply any makeup or cream to the area treated with a laser.

£60 per session or £120 for 3 sessions
