Permanent makeup treatments on the eyebrows, eyelids, and mouth can be convenient for people who are constantly on the go but still want to look their best. But sometimes, the people who undergo these treatments end up regretting them either because their initial results or personal preferences change over time. Fortunately, permanent makeup removal treatments can be used to undo the results of permanent makeup treatments and restore a person’s natural appearance.

What is Permanent Makeup Removal?
Permanent makeup removal harnesses the power of laser energy to remove permanent makeup from the mouth, eyebrow, and eyelid areas. Our practice uses both the Astanza and Ruby lasers during these procedures. While most patients don’t experience any significant amount of downtime after treatment, some may need between two and three days to recover fully after each session.
How Does it Work?
Permanent makeup removal treatments are much like laser tattoo removal procedures. Biologically, receiving a permanent makeup treatment is the same as receiving a tattoo; pigment is injected underneath the skin in both instances.
During treatment, laser energy is directed at the areas where permanent makeup has been applied. This energy begins to break up the pigment there, loosening it so that it can be properly cleared away by the body. With each additional permanent makeup removal treatment, more and more of this pigment is loosened and removed from the body.
Am I a Candidate for Permanent Makeup Removal?
Nearly anyone who has undergone a permanent makeup treatment in the past and is interested in removing that makeup is a potential candidate for permanent makeup removal. Before beginning treatment, patients must first schedule a consultation appointment with a member of ProMD Health’s medical staff. During this appointment, each patient will be asked about his or her medical history and previous permanent makeup treatment. Using this information, a member of our medical staff will help you decide if permanent makeup removal is right for them.
It’s important for patients to keep in mind that permanent makeup can contain metals that may affect the outcome of treatment. Before seeking out a permanent makeup removal treatment, patients should find out which chemicals their permanent makeup artist used.
