All You Need to Know about Eyebrow Tattoo Removal

Over the last couple of years as the defining feature of the eyes, eyebrow tattoos or microblading has become immensely popular. There are many salons across America where makeup professionals and freelance estheticians offer microblading. Those who are experts at cosmetic tattoos can make your eyebrows look best. Then there are professionals who do not do a great job according to the clients leaving many women with ugly looking permanent eyebrows. This means eyebrow tattoo removal is also rising.

Removing tattoos from your eyebrows is similar to other tattoo removal method where laser procedure is used for removing the unwanted eyebrow ink in two to five sessions. The clients must give one to two hours for their initial eyebrow tattoo removal treatment. The actual laser technique last for few minutes but treating, cooling, preparing and providing aftercare to the tattooed area as well as clearing all the doubts takes a fair amount of time during the first visit. Top reputed clinics use different methods according to their expertise. For example, some use Cryo Chiller therapy for cooling the affected area before starting the laser procedure. Some offer topical creams for numbing the area so that the clients get a comfortable experience. An additional one hour is required for the numbing agent to take effect. After confirming the treatment area, one can expect three to five minutes of lasering. With a blocking stick, pulses can be précised if a portion of the brow needs to be treated.

The laser technique is one of the innovative technologies available in the market and its short pulses help the clients in having comfortable as well as efficient sessions. One can feel the laser pulse like an elastic band snapping on the skin. There will be a warm sensation, swelling, and redness throughout the treatment session and will continue after the treatment. This effect is normal and treated by the chiller during the session and after the session treated with ice. Clients need to wear eye protection during eyebrow tattoo removal, as the laser beams are powerful enough to damage your eyes.

Removing eyebrow tattoos and microblading have a slight difference in timeline. Microblading is semi-permanent where the ink takes two to five sessions for removing. Traditional tattoos will take approximately six to seven sessions for removal. Both these styles of brow tattoos will require sessions with a spacing of five to eight weeks apart. Clients need to wait for two to three month after microblading or original tattooing treatment and after that, the removal process will begin. All the skin layers must heal and ink needs a fair amount of time for settling into the dermis so that the full pigment color gets visible on the skin. The tattoo removal technician will use a white pencil for drawing out the parts of the synthetic eyebrows that you want to preserve and ensures that you are happy with the new shape. One will still notice swelling and redness in the treatment for one to two days after treatment. An eyebrow ice pack will be provided to the clients to apply on the affected area for fast recovery. It is crucial for the skin to cool for the initial two days. Most of them do their removal process either on Friday or Saturday so that the redness and swelling will reduce by Monday morning.

The latest technology is used for reducing and eliminating the ink pigment in your skin and at the same time, your natural hairs are not removed (although some fall due to natural shedding). After the treatment, some eyebrow hairs can lose some pigmentation and turns white. However, this is only temporary and normal. Apply vitamin E based ointment on the tattooed area two to three times a day for accelerating the healing process of the skin. If one is willing to apply mineral-based makeup then do it after two days of treatment. Avoid exposure from the sun and apply a good sunscreen having SPF 30+. For speedy recovery, drink enough fluids and get a good sleep. Always remember, not the laser but your body is responsible for removing the ink.
