Permanent Makeup Removal
Eyebrow, eyeliner and lip tattoo removal
Permanent Makeup Removal London.
Over the last decade, permanent makeup has become extremely popular and widely available. The results are often very flattering, but unfortunately, due to bad technique and colour choice, sometimes there’s the need for permanent makeup removal to remove the makeup or tattoo.
There have been a number of removal options available for tattoos in the past. Laser removal is the most popular, and this is a great option for large, black tattoos, but it can be enormously difficult to remove colour tattoos (whites/greens) using this method.
Laser removal can also cause scarring and is not always appropriate for clients with darker skins. Saline removals are also often used for fading permanent makeup. This method is safe and effective, although the healing can be invasive and the process is slow.
We are sadly seeing an increase in the requests for emergency removals of permanent makeup especially brows due to the increased number of poorly trained microblading practitioners. This can often be an incredibly upsetting experience and until recently there have not been any safe and reliable means to remove this work without waiting at least a month.
We are so please to be able to offer a solution for removal that now extends the 48 hour window previously available. For microblading this often has an 80% success rate of removal of the pigment. This is a very safe method of removal with no risk of scarring and with no downtime using either the Li-ft Saline Removal emergency protocol if within 48 hours or the Magnetic Removal system on machine brows, eyeliner or any work that’s more than 48 hours old.
This incredible new system removes pigment without the significant downtime and healing process of previous methods (laser, acid, saline). It is safe, effective and can be used with all skin types and on all colours of pigment including camouflage. The system uses a special ’88’ needle which is magnetised and is used on the superficial dermis which is why there is so little downtime. The removal solution is applied using the 88 needle and the pigment is ‘pulled’ out of the skin. The combination of the magnetic needle attracting the metals in the pigment combined with the ultrasonic effect of the 88 configuration makes this one of the most gentle and effective removal methods we have encountered. Best of all, treatments can be repeated every 3-4 weeks rather than 8 weeks for saline/laser etc meaning that your tattoo can be removed more quickly.
- No downtime – shower and play sports the same day

The Li-ft removal treatment was developed by Li Pigments and is an extremely effective saline based removal system. It is a great option for emergency removals of unwanted permanent makeup (within 48 hours of treatment).
