Laser eyebrow tattoo removal process & aftercare. Microblading has become a hot new trend. Many women, including high profile celebrities, opt for this procedure so that they can have full, natural-looking brows that last for weeks at a time. Before microblading, there was eyebrow tattooing. Eyebrow tattooing is a process by which pigment is continuously implanted in the skin resulting in a permanent, solid eyebrow shape.
If you have an eyebrow tattoo that you no longer want, you should consider laser eyebrow tattoo removal. Here’s what you know about the process:
It is safe
Even though eyebrow tattoos are done near the eyes, laser eyebrow tattoo removal is a safe and simple process, when done by a certified laser specialist. A reputable laser tattoo removal clinic will always provide you with safety gear to ensure your eyes are protected during any procedure that is being done on the face. If you are not offered protective gear, do not consent to the procedure.
How long the laser eyebrow tattoo removal process takes
To completely remove an eyebrow tattoo, you may need up to 5 tattoo removal sessions. The number of sessions you will need depends on your skin type and the technique that was used to create your eyebrow tattoos. To get a better idea of how many sessions will be required, you must go in for consultation with a laser tattoo removal specialist.
Eyebrow tattoos may get darker before they are removed
The compounds that are usually used in eyebrow tattoos tend to get darker before getting lighter. It is also common for eyebrow tattoos to turn to a rusty brown colour after the first or second removal session. This is caused by the oxidization of the iron compounds that are usually present in the ink used for eyebrow tattoos. So, if your eyebrow tattoo darkens or changes colour before it is removed, do not be alarmed.
How long you must wait before laser eyebrow tattoo removal
Before you can start laser eyebrow tattoo removal, the ink needs to settle so that the colours can show through the tones of your skin. This normally takes about 8 to 12 weeks to happen. After that time, you can start having your eyebrow tattoos removed.
Laser eyebrow tattoo removal aftercare
Following a laser eyebrow tattoo removal procedure, avoid contact with the treated area for 3 days. Until that time has passed, avoid washing the area and do not apply makeup or creams. It is best if you sleep on your back as well.
Hair loss after laser eyebrow tattoo removal
There is a less than 5% chance of hair loss or thinning as a result of a laser eyebrow tattoo removal. However, if you have any hair loss, it will be temporary. You might notice that your eyebrows are lighter after treatment because the laser removed some of the pigment. This is also a temporary effect and new hair growth will be your natural colour.
Other side effects
You may experience pinpoint bleeding and mild to moderate swelling after your first treatment. This swelling should subside after 24 hours. After about 2 weeks, your skin should return to normal. However, you must still wait for 6 to 8 weeks in between treatment sessions to avoid permanent damage to your skin.
