Cosmetic tattoos are often located on the face and are designed to mimic the appearance of makeup. Sometimes called “permanent makeup,” many men and women choose eyebrow tattoos to save time on applying makeup daily. Instead of spending a few minutes touching up their eyebrows each week, they spend a few minutes getting a tattoo instead and have full-well defined eyebrows for life.

Similar cosmetic tattoos can be done to imitate eyeliner, accentuate the lips, or give colour to the cheeks, but cosmetic eyebrow tattoos are by far the most popular.

Tattoos have surged into mainstream popularity in recent decades, and cosmetic tattoos aren’t far behind. Although they aren’t as popular as regular tattoos, cosmetic tattoos have been around in various forms since the early 20th century, gaining popularity in the 1920s and 1930s.

One of the early developers of cosmetic tattooing technique, Englishman George Burchett, helped bring the style into vogue in the 1930s and recounts how beauty salons would tattoo women without their knowledge by pretending it was a treatment to improve complexion.

While it’s unlikely that many contemporary beauty salons tattoo their clients without consent, there is an increasing demand for eyebrow tattoo removal.

Before and After Eyebrow Cosmetic Tattoo

Imagine not having to apply or remove layers of makeup from your face every day! It would come as a big respite to a lot of men/women who depend on a range of cosmetics to look pretty. People have found the easy way out and are now attracted to permanent makeup or eyebrow tattoos to look good.

These cosmetic tattoos are becoming all the rage in urban areas such as Melbourne, Perth, Sydney, Brisbane, etc. However, with time, most people outgrow their fondness for permanent makeup. In some cases, the eyebrow style goes out of fashion and needs an update.

All these people turn to laser tattoo removal in Melbourne to get their face back in the original state. The laser tattoo removal procedure is safe contrary to the popular belief that using a laser too close to the eyes can have damaging consequences.

A trained professional takes all the safety precautions and has the best equipment to remove cosmetic tattoos tactfully. Let us help you understand the concerns related to cosmetic tattoos and their removal. Here are the answers to frequently asked questions that can make you less anxious about the procedure.

Can laser remove cosmetic tattoos?

This depends entirely on the location of the tattoo. The most commonly seen cosmetic tattoos are:

Eyebrows – these can be treated by laser.

Eyeliner – this should not be treated by laser unless you have ocular shields and a highly experienced practitioner.

Lipliner – laser treatment is not recommended.

The ink used in facial tattoos is usually cosmetic ink, which is semi-permanent. While many people assume that this will be easier to remove than the ink used in body tattoos, this isn’t the case, and the results can vary.

The success of laser eyebrow tattoo removal all depends on the type of ink used in the tattoos. Older links are generally more challenging to remove than newer ones. Also, while some inks will fade after a couple of treatments, others will oxidise, which results in the ink turning a much darker colour instead of lighter – some will even turn black! When this occurs, the tattoo has to be treated as new, so it can take several more treatments for it to fade.

Why Does Permanent Makeup Change Colour?

Cosmetic tattoos are different from traditional tattoos in terms of technique and the type of ink injected into the dermal layer. The ink used to create permanent makeup comprises organic and inorganic colourants that change colour due to a variety of reasons such as your skin tone, your environment, the technique used during tattooing, etc.

Whatever is the reason for the change in pigment colour, it can be removed with the help of the laser tattoo removal process. If you are aware of the type of ink used in your tattoo and can enlighten your clinician about the same, he/she can give you an idea about the duration of the treatment and the number of sessions required.

You can go back to the tattoo parlour and inquire about the composition of the tattoo ink or the name of the product to get the accurate details.

What Is Eyebrow Tattoo Removal?

Like all body ink, eyebrow tattoos can be removed with laser technology.

  • Permanent makeup
  • Cosmetic tattoos

There are a variety of reasons why people choose to get eyebrow tattoo removal treatment.

Did a face tattoo seem like a good idea a few years ago, but now you’re regretting it? Were you thrilled by the prospect of microblading to fill in your sparse brows? Did you think permanent makeup would save you hours of grooming, but your tattoo artist didn’t quite create your ideal shape? Regardless of what your tattoos look like or why you got them, a few tattoo removal sessions can make them a thing of the past.

How Many Sessions Does It Take to Remove an Eyebrow Tattoo?

For complete tattoo removal, most people need between three and ten treatments.

The number of treatments you’ll need depends on the size of the tattoo, the colour of the original link, and the type of ink used by your tattoo artist. (Permanent makeup inks are different than traditional tattoo inks).

Most eyebrow tattoos are small, and most small tattoos require only one minute under the laser per session. It’s a much quicker process having a tattoo removed than having one inked on.

What types of laser are used for eyebrow tattoo removal?

There are two main types of laser which are commonly used for tattoo removal:

  • Nd: YAG (Revlite)
  • Picosecond (PicoSure)

For most tattoos, treatment with a Picosecond laser is much faster than Nd YAG, but this is not always the case with facial tattoos – there is often little difference in treatment times between the two.

However, a Picosecond laser is gentler on the skin, which is an important consideration for a facial tattoo.

What are the symptoms of eyebrow tattoo removal?

During treatment, you will experience the sensation of a hot “flick” on the area of the skin being treated. Following this, there may be some mild stinging, and the area may swell slightly – these symptoms can last for several hours after treatment.

Laser removal for eyebrow tattoos is a safe procedure, as long as you make sure you choose a highly experienced practitioner, who will consult with you before your treatment and answer any questions you may have. They will not only give you the best results; they will also crucially make sure that the treatment you receive is safe and appropriate.

What to Expect After the Process is Complete? 

The tattoo removal process is quick and only slightly uncomfortable. However, it is normal to experience some side effects. Some people may see redness, swelling, and slight blistering in the treated area. On some occasions, you may see temporary lightening or darkening of the skin. These side effects are common, especially in the first few hours after treatment, but they will subside. 

Most people find that their skin returns to normal in about two weeks.

What Can Laser Hair Removal Do For The Eyebrows?


Eyebrow shaping is a great way to take the extra step into making yourself look sleek and trim. With carefully shaped eyebrows, anyone can achieve that Hollywood, red carpet look of their dreams. The problem is that most eyebrow removal methods are short-lived and high-effort, meaning you can go through hours of fuss and pain for a look that will only last a week or two if even that.

Common methods include threading and waxing, both of which are painful and frustrating. They also mean constant return trips to the salon every time you want your eyebrows to look amazing again. For many people, keeping up with this much maintenance can be hard to justify, so we often let our brows grow out.

With laser eyebrow shaping, you never have to worry about your eyebrows again. You can have your eyebrows shaped once with a series of treatments, preventing future hair growth from sprouting in certain areas ever again. With a series of quick 15-20-minute sessions, your eyebrows will be shaped the way you want them for life.

To keep patients safe, your doctor or specialist mustn’t administer the laser anywhere below the brow. The safe areas are beside the brow and above the brow, as well as the brow line itself. Anywhere below the brow is too risky, as this might cause the laser to bounce or reflect into the eye. You should also always wear eye-protective devices like goggles.


Another great application of eyebrow laser hair removal is unibrow removal. No one wants the pesky unibrow, but some of us are cursed with the unibrow genes and have to find ways to deal with it.

Whether you have a full-on bushy unibrow or just a few strands right above your nose – or anything in between – laser hair removal is the perfect procedure to ensure you never have to worry about your unibrow ruining your look again.

The benefit of hair removal on the unibrow is that it permanently removes your unibrow condition. While you may need a follow-up treatment in a year or two after your initial treatments, you can rest assured that you will never leave the house with an accidental unibrow again.

Finally, another popular eyebrow application of laser hair removal is for the hair right above the brow. If you have a bushy above-brown unwanted hair, you want to get rid of, and this is generally also lasered away during an eyebrow shaping or unibrow removal appointment.

Permanent eyebrow correction or removal can be done in the 3 following ways:

Chemical removal

This method for permanent eyebrow removal is no longer in favour due to its high risk of chemicals getting into the eye and because it does not work as the tattooed pigment is stored in the dermis which can be corrupted with high acidity of the chemicals used and lead to other problems following the skin injury. Therefore, it is not medically preferred. However, chemical removal of permanent eyebrow makeup or tattoo is mostly serviced in beauty salons or by phony doctors and non-standard eyebrow tattoo service places. The chemicals used for eyebrow tattoo removal are the following 2 types:

Light chemicals

 Light chemicals are fruit or herb extracts with acid medium to corrode the eyebrow-area skin.

Strong chemicals

Strong chemicals or acids are usually skin-sensitive substances. Removing the eyebrow tattoo with acid may cause burning in such areas due to strong acidity, and it may also be hazardous to the eye.

Skin-colored Cover Up Tattoos

 Permanent eyebrow removal with the skin-coloured cover-up tattoo method uses ink with the colour similar to our skin. This method is applied in the following 2 cases: 

Case 1: Cover-up during the tattooing process

This is to conceal an error made in the process, such as over-tattooing or missed tattooing.

Case 2: Post-tattoo cover-up

This method uses the skin-coloured ink to cover up the existing tattoo that is hard to remove. If unmatched skin colour is used, then it will result in a strange look. Plus, the covered-up tattoo causes thickness and non-uniformity to the skin. For this method, the service persons and customers usually do not think about possible consequences to come. Thus, it is a wrong or sloppy way of solving the problem, with more shortcomings than advantages.

Permanent Eyebrow Tattoo Removal with Laser

This is a currently popular method of removing permanent eyebrow makeup or tattoo as it is painless and convenient to customers; however, the service should be given in a reliable establishment and by doctors.Check out eyeliner tattoo page which has everything you might need near you.
