So don’t worry if you want to get rid of your botched eyebrow embroidery or simply want to change the look. In this blog, we will tell you about all the techniques and methods that are used to remove eyebrow embroideries.

What are the most common eyebrow embroidery removal options?

There are various methods used to remove eyebrow embroidery or eyebrow tattoo. However, the three most effective techniques for eyebrow embroidery removal are

  • Laser removal
  • Saline removal
  • Glycolic acid Removal

Let’s understand in depth how each of these methods works and which one is the best option for you

1.    Laser Removal

Laser removal is the most effective method of removing permanent tattoos and is also very efficient in removing makeup tattoos. The laser beam simply penetrates your skin and dissolves the pigment so that your skin can absorb it.

You will need four to six sessions done eight weeks apart to completely remove the tattoo. Laser removal is the easiest option to remove any kind of permanent makeup. However, one disadvantage of removing eyebrow embroidery through laser removal is that it burns the eyebrow hair although only temporarily. Your eyebrow hair will eventually grow back after the laser is done. Another disadvantage of laser removal is that it is not very effective at removing yellow, red, or pink pigments.

2.    Saline Removal

This technique can be used within after 48 hours of getting the tattoo or when it is completely healed. The saline solution is inserted into the skin to dry out the pigment which is then removed from your eyebrow skin through scabbing. Saline removal is an effective method however, the number of sessions depends upon the saturation of your eyebrow embroidery

3.    Glycolic Acid Removal

Glycolic acid Removal is very similar to eyebrow embroidery removal through the saline solution. The skin is opened and the glycolic acid solution is inserted into the skin. The pigment is then removed from your eyebrow through scabbing. This method of eyebrow embroidery removal is also very effective and usually works within a couple of sessions.

The eyebrow will need to heal completely between the sessions. This is the reason why the sessions are performed with a gap of at least eight weeks so that your eyebrows can heal completely before the next session is performed.
