Why choose NAAMA for permanent makeup removal?
Our novel LightSense™ laser system, developed at Princeton University, puts skin safety front and centre of the laser tattoo removal experience. There are numerous reasons why it’s perfect for removing cosmetic tattoos.
Removal in months, not years
In the past it could take years to see a difference with laser permanent makeup removal. LightSense™ is skin-kind. Return for treatment as often as every 2-3 weeks and see results.
Permanent makeup removal follows the same process as laser tattoo removal. First, we use the laser to break down the ink pigment into smaller particles. Your immune system then steps in to remove these particles from your body. Repeat until it’s all clear!
Our LightSense™ laser system is a skin-safe and gentle way to treat delicate areas of the face. The low-energy pulses significantly reduce the risk of blistering, scarring or lasting damage (this is your face, after all) while our incredibly accurate spot size means we can target the ink with superior precision.
Yes, we can treat black ink tattoos on all Fitzpatrick skin types. There are some restrictions on treating coloured inks on darker skin tones. We’re working on a breakthrough, but in the meantime you can speak to one of our experts if you have any questions or request a patch test.
Most clients achieve their desired results in 3-5 sessions, but it varies. Some require fewer sessions (even just one) while others might require more.
Factors such as the type of your cosmetic tattoo, its density, and your health and lifestyle all play a part. Generally speaking, permanent makeup removal is faster than tattoo removal as the ink isn’t inserted as deeply into the skin.
Our experts can advise how many sessions you might require at the start of your removal journey.
The safety of your skin is our top priority, but providing it’s fully healed we can start removing permanent makeup as soon as 6 weeks after it’s applied.
With our skin-kind laser, you can return for permanent makeup removal as often as every 2-3 weeks.
The skin needs far less time to heal following treatment with LightSense™ compared to standard lasers. It’s all thanks to our accurate energy distribution and low-energy pulses, which are just as effective but much gentler on your skin.
Many clients compare it to the sensation of getting a tattoo in the first place, others describe it as pain free. The LightSense™ laser system uses 34X less energy than the average pico laser and is much more gentle on the skin than standard technologies.
There is always a risk of oxidation with permanent makeup. When permanent makeup oxidises, we usually see the ink develop red and then yellow tones.
Prior to treatment, we will assess your skin according to the Fitzpatrick scale. On Fitzpatrick 1-3 skin tones (lighter), oxidised ink can be treated successfully. On Fitzpatrick 4-6 skin types (darker), permanent makeup tends to oxidise to red and purple tones, which is more difficult to successfully treat. In this case, we use a 1064 nm laser - a wavelength that’s particularly good for tackling black ink - to lighten the ink.
Seeing success in these instances is challenging, but our specialist consultants will be able to recommend a treatment course that is right for you. Lip blushing can be removed on Fitzpatrick 1-3 skin types. However, there is a risk of oxidation to grey, which remains throughout the treatment process.
If you’re concerned about oxidation, we recommend a patch test.
No, you do not need to shave your eyebrows. And don't worry, your eyebrow hairs will not be burned during treatment.
Come as you are and we’ll take care of the rest.
While we require you to be makeup-free for your session, you can apply makeup to the treated area as soon as the following day.
No, we will not be able to treat you if you have a deep tan, burned skin or are wearing fake tan. Any sort of tan disrupts your cells and affects the way the laser hits your skin, increasing the risk of skin damage.
Please monitor your sun exposure before and between your appointments, and avoid using fake tan during treatment.
Side effects are generally very mild for eyebrow tattoo and microblading removal. You might temporarily see some slight redness around the area or experience what we call ‘frosting’.
Frosting is a natural reaction when the laser hits the targeted ink and isn’t any cause for concern. It usually goes away after 10 minutes or so, but can last for up to 48 hours in some cases.
If you have particularly dense eyebrow tattooing, you’re more likely to experience some redness or pinpoint bleeding as we need to work deeper to target the ink. However, we’ll discuss this with you during your consultation so you know exactly what to expect.
Don’t worry, your eyebrows will not be burned during treatment (this is why we don’t need you to shave prior to your session!). Our revolutionary laser system is superior when it comes to skin-safety and you can apply makeup to the treated area as soon as the next day.
In very rare cases, clients may temporarily experience mild hair loss following treatment. However, as we do not work deep enough to target the hair follicle, there is no long-term damage and the hair will regrow.
