Permanent make-up, also known as micropigmentation, is a form of tattooing, offering an alternative to time spend applying make-up every morning making it an attractive option for many women. Permanent eyeliner, eyebrows, lip liner or even full lip color are all possible. It is also helpful to those with arthritis, who may experience difficulty and pain applying makeup. In addition many people who have lost their eyebrows due to alopecia (a form of hair loss) may choose to have “eyebrows” tattooed on, while people with vitiligo (a lack of pigmentation in areas of the skin) may try tattooing to help camouflage the condition.
Permanent make-up removal can present many challenges that should be considered before undergoing micropigmentation.
Laser tattoo removal works by breaking down the pigments in the skin using pulses of high energy light. The pigments are naturally absorbed into the body, causing the tattoo to fade and disappear. Pigment color and the tattoo’s location on the body can impact the ease of removal. Permanent make-up often employs colors such as browns, oranges, purples, reds, and shades of white. These pigments can be similar to the patient’s natural skin color and are difficult to remove.
Some patients of permanent lipstick removal experience a darkening of the lips, with the lips even turning black in some cases. Laser tattoo removal treatments can last for months and most patients are unwilling to endure blackened lips for the duration. Some patients have experienced permanent darkening of their lips.
Because of the complexity involved in removing permanent make-up as well as the potential for liability, many doctors are unwilling to perform the procedure. Eyeliner tattoos are particularly difficult to remove and the use of a laser so close to the eye is considered extremely unsafe by most doctors and plastic surgeons.
