When Do You Consider Removing Permanent Makeup?

  1. Not Happy with the Results: If your permanent makeup didn't turn out the way you wanted – maybe the lines are uneven, have asymmetries, the colors are wrong, or it's fading not evenly, etc. – you might be thinking about permanent makeup removal.

  2. Change in Preferences: Your tastes change over time. What you liked before might not fit your style or life anymore, and that's a good reason to consider removal.

  3. Allergic Reactions: Some people develop allergies to the pigments in permanent makeup, leading to discomfort, redness, or swelling.

  4. Fading and Discoloration: Exposure to sunlight, chemicals, or other things in the environment can make Permanent Makeup fade or change color over time.

Can I Remove Permanent Makeup?

Yes, you can remove it. Laser treatments are commonly used to break down the pigments in the skin.

When Can I Start Removing Permanent Makeup?

It's usually best to wait at least four weeks after getting permanent makeup before thinking about removal. This gives your skin time to heal and lowers the chance of problems.

How Many Sessions Do I Need?

The number of sessions depends on things like the type of pigments used and your skin. On average, you might need several sessions for the best results.
