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

This is my second laser hair removal treatment (bikini and now lower leg). Kirsty is brilliant, always polite, friendly and professional. I would without a doubt recommend the services that you offer at the Lynton Clinic - in fact I regularly do!!

Lucy, Holmes Chapel

After a bad experience at another laser clinic, I was advised by a friend to see Kirsty at the Lynton Clinic. Kirsty is very professional and extremely knowledgeable. It is clear she has been treating patients for many years. The Clinic is immaculate and all staff are extremely friendly and welcoming. If you need a tattoo removed, then I suggest you book in with the Lynton Clinic.

I have been going to the Lynton Clinic for laser hair removal and it's one of the best decisions I've made! Emma is always so welcoming, explaining the treatment to me and making me feel completely at ease each time. The clinic is extremely clean and hygienic and adheres to all the covid-safe rules too.

Charlotte Farnworth

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.

Anonymous

I am so glad the Lynton Clinic was recommended to me by a doctor friend and I too highly recommend them. The staff is really friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. I had 2 treatments for hyperpigmentation and am delighted with the result. My complexion looks so much fresher and brighter. Many friends have commented on how well I look. I hated the brown spots on the backs of my hands, so ageing - now they are completely gone.

Susan Barrington-Smith

Really professional tattoo removal service, definitely better than other places I have been.
