Semi-Permanent Makeup Removal and Correction

semi-permanent makeup on eyes

With the Increase in Semi-Permanent Make-Up (cosmetic tattoos), the desire to remove unwanted semi-permanent makeup has increased. Semi Permanent Makeup Removal and Laser Tattoo Removal are very similar, they both involve the use of a laser to break down the colour pigments within the tattoo – the laser emits short pulses of energy which are absorbed by the ink and causes the ink to breakdown. This is then removed naturally by the body, and the removal continues after each session. Our Semi-Permanent Makeup Removal treatment is carried out by our highly trained, experienced professionals using the latest and safest laser technology.

Laser Tattoo Removal Treatment Summary

FAQs

How does a tattoo removal laser work?

Q-Switched Lasers that generate a high powered beam of laser light in an extremely short pulse are the most suitable lasers for tattoo removal treatments. The very short pulse of high powered laser light is absorbed by the tattoo ink particles, breaking them down into smaller pieces, enabling your natural immune defences to absorb and disperse the ink. A gradual fading of the tattoo occurs over a series of treatments.

How is the treatment carried out?

The skin will be cleaned and then the laser applicator is passed over the tattoo releasing quick pulses of light. An audible ‘clicking’ noise is often heard as the ink particles shatter. After treatment, a soothing lotion and a light dressing may be applied. During treatment protective eye wear will be provided.

How does the treatment feel?

Most patients describe the sensation as similar to a hot pin prick or the flick of an elastic band. Whilst mildly uncomfortable, most people tolerate treatment well. A skin cooling device may be utilised to reduce any discomfort.

How does the skin look after treatment?

An instant whitening of the skin is seen after treatment, but this generally fades quickly. The area is likely to feel tender for a few hours and can be red and swollen for up to 48 hours. Some tattoos will form a graze which must be left to heal naturally. Initially the tattoo is unlikely to look any different but will fade over the next 4 to 8 weeks as the body disperses it.

Are there any side effects?

Very rarely the skin may become lighter or darker, or a small blister may form. Change to skin texture and scarring is possible, though uncommon, and is more likely if any grazes are not allowed to heal naturally. There may be loss of the natural tanning ability in the area treated, which usually improves with time.

How many treatments are necessary?

This depends on several factors, including the density and colour of inks and the age of the tattoo. Amateur tattoos can be quick to remove, taking 1 to 6 treatments, whereas professional tattoos vary considerably and some can take up to 15 treatments. Treatment sessions are spaced 6 to 10 weeks apart.

How long does each treatment take?

Treatment time varies depending upon the size of the tattoo but generally is between 10 – 30 minutes.

What is the consultation procedure?

Prior to treatment you must first undergo a consultation where details about your medical history are obtained in order to confirm suitability. Before proceeding you will be asked to sign a consent form and undergo a test patch.

Customer Testimonials

I would definitely recommend Lynton. Friendly people who know what they are doing

Tracy Robinson

Being of mature years I have always tried to find ways of improving the quality and look of my skin, finding The Lynton Clinic and discussing with very professional and honest staff what results I was looking for I decided to go for Fractional Laser and Skin Tightening treatments. I have found that my skin has tightened and has a lovely natural glow. My friends are all complimenting (even the fellows) on how I am looking. It makes me happy and bouncy with a feeling of well-being. Now I do not mind having my picture taken before I used to hate it. Thank you all at Lynton!  

Wendy Barlow

Something I really appreciate when visiting a clinic is great customer service - Emma was extremely professional and welcoming, I felt well looked after from start to end and I had a memorable and pleasurable experience that I am more than happy to share. Highly recommend Lynton clinic for their in depth knowledge and high tech treatments, to help you feel as good as possible about yourself!

My cellulite had always bothered me. Over time it has got worse to the point where I no longer wanted to wear shorts or skirts. I now feel so much better and I have the confidence now to wear what I want.

Sarah M

Kirsty was very knowledgable and informative re treatments and products. I enjoyed the treatment and look forward to achieving results that I’ve discussed with Kirsty, she was not pushy in anyway and I feel  confident that The Lynton clinic can help me with my skin care.

Wendy, Knutsford

I have had several fractional laser sessions at Lynton Lasers on what was very severe post acne scarring to the whole of my back. The scarring varied in severity from slight pitting to large patches (2cm squares) of hypertrophic scars. These scars were approximately 18 years old and something I had just learnt to live with. I never really believed anything could be done about them. We started the course of laser with a curious mind to see what results could be achieved but with very little expectation. The treatments were quick and it is absolutely tolerable. There was some sunburn type of heat to the area afterwards but pretty much completely gone after an hour or so. The area then scabbed and I kept it heavily moisturised with a petroleum for about a week. The results have gradually been improving over a 6 month period with in this time I probably had about 3 treatments. The results have been outstanding, the scarring is still visible and will never disappear completely but the difference has been life changing. The confidence I feel to wear clothing and swimwear that reveal that area of my body without feeling embarrassed is amazing. I am hooked and am now curious as what else laser machines can achieve for me!!! Many thanks to the Lynton Team.

Katie Mares

Excellent relaxing treatment with great results.

Barbara, Macclesfield

I’ve had two treatments of IPL so far for sun damage and pigmentation spots on my face and the difference is dramatic! I’m no longer conscious about not wearing make-up and my friends and family say I’m glowing! I’m having a 3rd treatment which will complete my transformation!

Jayne Cordley-Hennessey

Loved my experience here, Emma was so helpful and my treatment was amazing!!! I’ve had laser before and it can be uncomfortable in places but this pain free laser is worth every penny, I didn’t feel a thing?!! And my skin looks great, so happy I decided to do this, thank you

Donna Morris

I highly recommend The Lynton Clinic as the treatments are given by highly skilled and professional staff. I had laser treatment for tattoo removal by Kirsty Turnbull and I also have other treatments at the clinic. After visiting the Clinic on a number of different occasions the experience is always the same. You are made to feel relaxed,everything is fully explained and the treatments are of the highest standard. The staff really care about their clients and want to give you the best experience possible. I am thrilled with the outcome of my tattoo removal and am nearing the end of this treatment. I can't say enough positive things about Kirsty and The Lynton Clinic.
