Before the treatment, a topical numbing cream or local anesthetic may be applied to the target area for a more comfortable procedure. Patients may feel or hear snaps as the laser delivers energy. Laser & Skin Surgery Center of Pennsylvania has advanced lasers that effectively provide short, high-power pulses to reduce or eliminate permanent makeup.

Permanent makeup removal


Q: What is permanent makeup removal?

A: Permanent makeup removal is a procedure used to remove the appearance of permanent makeup in the skin. It requires specialized lasers and techniques to safely break up the pigment particles and allow for them to be cleared out by your own body’s natural processes. This may take several treatments and can require special care between treatments to ensure optimal outcomes.

Q: Who is an ideal candidate for laser makeup removal?

A: Men or women with permanent makeup who want to remove lip, eyebrow, eyeliner, or microblading tattoos may be ideal candidates for permanent makeup removal. Laser makeup removal is a complex and delicate procedure that requires expertise from an experienced board-certified dermatologist who is familiar with the required techniques. Your expert physician will provide a thorough cosmetic and medical assessment to ensure you are a candidate for safe removal.

Q: How long will my laser makeup removal procedure take?

A: Laser makeup removal treatments can last anywhere from 10 minutes to one hour, depending on how many areas are being treated. Some patients may require several treatment sessions, depending on the extent of the makeup. Treatment sessions are scheduled 1-2 months apart to ensure proper healing before another laser session.

Q: Is eyebrow tattoo removal painful?

A: Many patients find eyebrow tattoo removal to be a comfortable experience with our anesthetic techniques. Before a laser treatment session, a topical or local anesthetic is applied to numb the area. Patients should feel minimal discomfort during the procedure.

Q: How many makeup removal treatments will I need for maximum results?

A: Patients can require multiple treatments to effectively remove permanent makeup and can expect 2-10 laser sessions spaced 1-2 months apart. Many patients can see visible results even after 1 or 2 sessions but may need more based on the number of treatment areas and the extent of the makeup.

Q: What is the recovery like after permanent makeup removal?

A: Downtime after permanent makeup removal is minimal. Many patients can return to normal activities soon after treatment. Some patients may experience mild side effects such as:

  • Redness
  • Tenderness
  • Crusting or scabbing
  • Swelling

Side effects typically dissipate within 1-7 days, and patients feel comfortable returning to everyday activities. Following aftercare instructions, such as avoiding direct sun exposure after a treatment session, is important to ensure proper recovery and results.
