HOW DOES LASER EYEBROW TATTOO REMOVAL WORK?
One of the most common methods of eyebrow tattoo removal is laser removal. This process involves using a laser to break up the pigment in the tattoo, naturally allowing your body to absorb and eliminate the ink over time. While laser removal can be effective, it's important to note that it can also be uncomfortable and may require multiple sessions to achieve the desired results. Additionally, not all tattoo inks respond well to laser removal, so it's essential to consult a professional before the procedure.
The success of eyebrow tattoo removal depends on several factors, including:
- The age of the tattoo: Older tattoos are generally easier to remove than newer ones. This is because the ink can penetrate deeper into the skin over time, making it harder to break down and remove. If your tattoo is relatively new, you may have a better chance of successful removal.
- The type of ink used: Darker colors, such as black and dark brown, are typically more difficult to remove than lighter colors, such as pink or yellow. This is because darker colors absorb more laser energy, making them harder to break down. Additionally, some colors, such as white or flesh tones, may not respond to laser treatment.
- Your skin type: People with lighter skin tones generally have an easier time removing tattoos than people with darker skin tones.
- Depth of ink: If the ink is applied too deeply, it may be more challenging to break down and remove. Additionally, suppose the tattoo was applied using a technique that involves puncturing the skin multiple times, such as microblading. In that case, it may be harder to remove than a tattoo applied using a traditional tattoo machine.
EYEBROW TATTOO REMOVAL WITH PICOWAY
Eyebrow tattoo removal is fast, safe, and easy with the FDA-cleared PicoWay laser system. Using a photoacoustic effect—where pulsed picosecond laser energy (one-trillionth of a second) is transformed into sound rather than heat within the skin—the PicoWay painlessly shatters the tattoo ink into fragments that are then easily flushed out of the body. The system reaches beneath the skin's surface to target those layers of skin where the tattoo ink is embedded and shatters it. PicoWay additionally stimulates the growth of new collagen and elastin, which further assist in diminishing the appearance of the tattoo.
As with all laser tattoo removal options, the PicoWay may require multiple quick treatments (15 to 20 minutes each) to reach optimal results. It is an excellent patient choice because it requires little to no downtime after treatments and does not risk causing potential damage to the skin's surface layers through overheating.
After the procedure, your eyebrows will likely feel sore and swollen. You may also experience some redness and scabbing. Keeping the area clean and dry is vital to avoid infection and scarring.
- Here are some aftercare tips:
- Apply an ice pack to your eyebrows for 10-15 minutes every hour for the first few hours after the procedure to reduce swelling
- Avoid touching or picking at the scabs that form as your eyebrows heal
- Avoid sun exposure and tanning beds, as they can cause the ink to fade unevenly
- Apply a healing ointment or cream to the area to promote healing
