Permanent Makeup Removal
Truly Exceptional Results
YAG (yttrium aluminum garnet) laser is the first choice of a laser for permanent makeup removal. The purpose of this laser is specifically to help with pigmentation.
The laser ray selects the colour, heats it, and then disintegrates it into very small parts. These tiny pigment particles are small enough to be absorbed by the cells (phagocytes) and removed through the lymphatic system.
The removal process of permanent makeup with a laser is simple, quick and takes only a few days of recovery. You will first need to consult with your doctor to find out if you are a suitable candidate to have this procedure.
A numbing cream is used on the area to reduce discomfort and the full process usually takes less than an hour. Patients might notice slight redness over the treated areas but this will fade in a few hours.
This is a modern and highly-effective method for removal of pigmentation. Typically, several treatments are required!
THE BENEFITS OF YAG LASER
• Laser treatment is very gentle and almost painless. The surrounding tissue stays unaffected and is not injured. However, laser removal of cosmetic tattoos can be dangerous if not performed by a trained practitioner.
• Immediately after your first laser tattoo removal, you may experience pinpoint bleeding and mild to moderate swelling. This should subside within 24 hours and complete recovery will take about two weeks. However, it is very important to rest your skin for a month or two before your next appointment. This is to avoid the risk of permanent damage to the skin.
• Several laser sessions are needed to remove permanent make-up completely. But, in some cases, as few as two treatments are enough to remove permanent makeup. This is because the compounds used in cosmetic tattoos do not have the same staying power as regular tattoos.
• The number of sessions required to completely remove the permanent makeup depends on the color, kind, and depth of the pigmentation and on the responsiveness of the body’s immune system to remove the color particles.
• The pigment will continue to fade throughout the years following the final treatment. The time it takes to fade completely will depend on the type of pigment and how it interacts with the skin.
• You can get better results by using two to three non-laser solution sessions in combination with a laser procedure.
