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.

Emergency Removals

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 within the first 48 hours of treatment with 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 the Li-ft Saline Removal emergency protocol.

    LI-FT Removal

    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).  We use Li-FT to remove migrated or unwanted brows, eyeliner, lip tattoos and small ink based tattoos.  

    This is a great option for eyeliner treatments which are not possible with the NPM blend.  As with all removals, the number of treatments required will depend on the following criteria:

    • The age of the permanent makeup
    • How many levels of pigment (i.e multiple applications on the brows)
    • How deep the technician worked, was this deep and with trauma to the skin.
    • What pigment was used
    • Your skin type and age.


    The NPM removal system uses a blend of gentle lactic acids and a special needle configuration to lift the colour out of the procedure site whilst allowing the skin to heal more quickly.

    We are very pleased to be able to offer an alternative option which is effective, gentle and can be used on all colour tattoos and permanent makeup, including brows, eyeliner and lip colour – the NPM removal system.

    The number of treatments required will depend on the area of removal, how heavily pigmented the are is and how deep the pigment was placed, the type of pigment or ink used and the age of the permanent makeup.  We will discuss this with you during the consultation.

    Commonly Asked Questions

    Who is this treatment good for?

    Anyone wishing to remove permanent makeup- either because they do not like the shape/colour or because the pigment has faded into an unflattering shade.
    Please note, we are unable to treat you if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or have auto immune conditions. Please check our medical forms for a full list of contraindications.

    How many sessions will I need?

    This really does depend on the age of the tattoo and how much pigment is left in the skin. Permanent makeup can usually be removed or sufficiently faded in 3 sessions, tattoos in 3-5 sessions or 6-8 sessions in exceptional cases.

    How long do I have to wait to have the procedure?

    We can see you 4 weeks after your initial tattoo, if you have had a removal process already then we will need to leave 6 weeks to let the skin heal fully. Removals can be repeated every 4 weeks.

    What will I look like afterwards?

    The skin may look red at the site of the removal, the skin will most likely form a scab and this scab will hold the removed pigment. We will provide a healing balm and instructions.

    What if I am nervous?

    It’s not unusual to be nervous before your treatment, especially if it is your first time. Rest assured that a topical anaesthetic will be applied to ensure that the removal procedure is as comfortable as possible and Borciani London staff will be on hand to answer any questions you may have about your treatment.

    What are the costs of permanent makeup tattoo removal?

    Emergency Removal is £275 and must be within 48 hours of your treatment

    Permanent Makeup Removal is £275 for the first session and £220 for each ssession thereafter.

    How soon after the procedure will I be able to get new permanent makeup?

    Ideally, you will rest your skin for 8 weeks following your removals.

    Roughly how long does it take to remove permanent makeup?

    The procedure is really quick, once we have numbed the area it takes around 5 minutes for a brow and 10 minutes for a 10 x 10 tattoo.

    Do I need to do anything to prepare for my permanent makeup removal?

    The better the condition of your skin, the better the results, please avoid any chemical peels, Retinols for 4 weeks and do not take any blood thinners for 48 hours before your treatment.
