PERMANENT MAKE-UP REMOVAL
#1 HOW DOES THE REMOVAL OF PERMANENT MAKE-UP OR MICROBLADING WORK?
The tattoo artist, make-up artist or pigmentist inserts microfine colour pigments with very fine to wafer-thin needles or pigmentation equipment into the upper skin layers. With microblading the colour pigments are “scratched” into the skin. The laser heats up the applied colour pigments with ultra short, high energy light and disperses them into even smaller particles. These tiny pigments can be metabolized by the body’s immune system.
In some states permanent make-up is still forbidden or only allowed under very strict supervision.
Due to the extremely short duration of the laser impulse the surrounding skin tissue remains intact and scar-free.
REMOVAL OF PERMANENT MAKE-UP AND MICROBLADING BY LASER
Part of our daily work is the removal of permanent make-up, Conture make-up and microblading. During the last years we saw the number of women who were unhappy with their permanent make-up increasing. In 2015 it was the most common tattoo removal of women. (see also Top ten tattoo removals of women)
At tattoolos you will be advised and treated by specially trained, certified laser operators with long-standing experience in the removal of permanent make-up and microblading.
Laser treatments have become the gold standard in the gentle and scar-free removal of permanent make-up and microblading. Thanks to the new four wavelengths laser technology, it is possible to remove almost all colours without residue.
All other methods, either creams, dermabrasion or surgical, cannot be recommended, because they are most often painful and cause unpleasant scars.
At tattoolos we work with a q-switched Nd:YAG and ruby laser system. With this kind of laser we treat miscarried eyebrows or lip contours in several session.
Our tattoolos staff completely traces the permanent make-up once with the high-energy laser. The colour particles of the tattoo – and only these – heat up that much, that they break down step by step.
This way, the particles become so small, that they can be transported through the lymph system. After each session the permanent make-up gets paler and paler until it is finally vanished. Each single treatment takes a maximum of ten minutes.
Laser removal of permanent make-up and microblading without surprises
Already in 2008 we specialized in the removal of PMU, microblading and Conture make-up. Before we start the treatment, tattoolos gives you a comprehensive consultation about the duration, number of required sessions, risks and side-effects, for you to know what to expect. This preliminary consultation is free.

#2 HOW MUCH DOES THE REMOVAL OF PMU / MICROBLADING COST?
To estimate the cost of the removal of miscarried eyebrows or lip contours several factors have to be considered. The most important ones are the quality of the applied colour, the amount of colour and insertion depth. Less colour and lower insertion depth means less effort for lasering and thus fewer treatments.
So it is rather difficult to give a general statement about the cost of permanent make-up, Conture make-up and microblading removal.

#3 HOW LONG DOES THE REMOVAL OF PERMANENT MAKE-UP OR MICROBLADING BY LASER TAKE?
For permanent make-up relatively little colour is inserted into the skin. So there are less laser session required than for the removal of a professional tattoo. During the laser treatment the lines of pigmentation are traced with the laser. For each colour we use a special wavelength at tattoolos to remove your unwanted permanent make-up quickly, gently and without residue.
At tattoolos you will be treated by specially trained, certified laser operators with long-standing experience in the removal of permanent make-up.
Depending on insertion depth and applied amount of colour, the complete removal of PMU and microblading requires 2-6 treatments. The actual treatment takes only a few minutes and is thanks to our professional cooling technology almost pain-free.

#6 THE RIGHT AFTERCARE FOR PMU LASER REMOVAL
After each treatment you get a cooling pad for the treated area to soothe your skin. Some redness and slight swelling may occur, but they vanish after a few days. In the first two weeks after your treatment it is especially important to be gentle to your skin. It helps to drink a glass of pineapple juice twice a day. The enzymes of the pineapple help your skin in its regeneration process. Tattoolos also offers special care products for your aftercare of the removed permanent make-up. As soon as the treated area has completely healed, you can finally put on any make-up you desire, every day differently. Or you decide to simply be naturally tattooless beautiful!
#7 EYELINER REMOVAL
We do not treat permanent eyeliner in our studios. We do not want to be responsible for any possible damage to the retina and visual impairment caused by laser light. We have a lot of experience in removing eyebrow PMU and lip contours and would strongly advise you against laser treatment directly on your eyes. A treatment in the face is only advisable with special laser safety goggles. So please, watch out for a high quality studio and well-experienced practitioner, when you decide to get laser treatment in the face.
#8 RISKS AND SIDE-EFFECTS
As well as with any other tattoo, permanent make-up can lead to an allergic reaction. In extreme cases it can cause inflammation. There are known cases of recurring herpes caused by permanent make-up. In this context hygiene standards and the right choice of colour are key. But you should also know that the label “permanent” is misleading. Cosmetic tattoos in the face are long lasting but rarely permanent.
Since face tattoos are constantly exposed to sunlight, artificial eyebrows, eyeliner and lip contours fade usually more quickly than tattoos that are better protected against UV-rays. They are usually done more expansively and the colour is inserted more deeply into the skin than in cosmetic tattoos. Depending on skin type and age permanent make-up lasts between two to five years, sometimes even ten. The younger the skin, the quicker the permanent make-up fades. But still, the time until it completely fades can be too long, especially if the tattoo artists made a mistake. It happens that eyebrows are positioned too high, left and right brow are uneven, the colour looks different than expected or the lip line is not exact or drawn too thick. Those are typical mistakeS that happen quite often.
