Methods to Remove or Lighten Permanent MakeupIt is faster and easier to obtain a body or makeup tattoo than it is to remove either one. Several methods are available to remove body art tattoos and, sometimes, permanent makeup:
- Surgical Excision: A physician cuts out the tattoo and sutures the edges of the skin back together. The skin over and around the tattoo may need to be stretched first.
- Dermabrasion: The tattooed skin is "sanded" by a physician with a special device. The top and middle layers of the skin that contain the old ink or pigment are removed.
- Laser Technology: Pulses of light are used to break up the tattoo ink under the skin so the body's cells can "eat it up.” Results vary depending on the type of laser and wavelength of light used. Laser tattoo removal is popular for removing body art, but few physicians use lasers for permanent makeup removal because of the risks. Removing permanent eyeliner with lasers is extremely difficult and expensive. Physicians are cautious about using lasers to remove permanent lip liner because the lips are so vascular (bleed easily). Also, they are concerned about lasers turning permanent makeup black, which can occur any time a laser is used on or near the pigment.
- Saline Technique: Similar to the Salabrasion process that was used by physicians, the saline or salt-water technique uses the scientific principles of osmosis and equalization. Saline or concentrated salt water is tattooed over the unwanted pigment or ink to draw it up to the surface of the skin and out of the body into a scab. Once the scab falls off, the pigment will be gone or its color will be lighter. The treated area will be pink from the new skin that has formed. Using this method to remove permanent makeup because the “controlled scabbing” that occurs is very precise.
- Fading products: Infinique may use one of the two fading products to lift the pigment.
