Unveiling a Fresh Canvas: The Journey of Cosmetic Tattoo Removal

Permanent makeup is one of the most loved beauty enhancements. Whether it’s perfectly sculpted eyebrows, expertly applied eyeliner or voluptuous lip blush tattoo, they are symbol of freedom and effortless beauty. However, as time passes, our cosmetic tattoos may not look as great as they once did. In most cases cosmetic tattoos can simply be refreshed, in others, removal may the logical next step. That’s where the cosmetic tattoo removal begins—a transformative process that unveils a fresh canvas for new beginnings.

Why did DAELA Cosmetic Tattoo choose to introduce laser cosmetic tattoo removal?

We put them on, why would we want to take them off?

The answer is simple: It’s another level of customer service that we can offer our clients. Our primary mission is complete customer satisfaction and that the end result of any procedure we perform is the best for our clients.

With microblading entering its second decade of prominence in the US, you can imagine that there is a lot of various long-term results that may need to be reimagined, and we see thousands of customers a year, many with previous work. Some people have had microblading done multiple times, as well as ombre powder brows. At some point, the buildup of pigment becomes more difficult to color correct. As we see more people enter our studios with brows that we find ourselves wishing we could just erase, so we can reapply works of art using updated techniques, pigments and needles, the need for a laser removal system became more evident.

We see other clients who had lip tattoo done long ago, with outdated techniques. We also people with eyeliner that no longer suits their desired look. We see brows that have lost their color and shape. Plus, style changes, now people are embracing our natural approach to cosmetic tattoo, wishing to look refreshed and authentic. So, we may need to do some removal to achieve this.

Embracing Change: The Evolution of Cosmetic Tattoo Removal

Let’s talk about the laser system we chose. We take nothing lightly at DAELA, everything matters, everything is important. From customer service to quality of pigments and tools, to our masterful artists.

So, we took a deep dive into laser technology.

  • What did we find?

We found the best laser on the market. 

While laser tattoo removal has been around for a while, advances in laser technology have made the use of lasers to remove cosmetic tattoos effective, safe and desirable. Enter the best laser removal system on the market: Picoway Laser by Candela.

With the PicoWay the process has become more precise, efficient, and effective than ever before. Even more important? The process is minimally painful (less than the original tattoo) and you don’t have to shave your eyebrows! (Mic drop.)

What once seemed like an indelible mark can now be gently erased, allowing individuals to embrace change and redefine their personal narrative.

Oh, and a really nice side effect of the laser sessions? Individuals may notice improvements in skin texture as a secondary benefit. The ultra-short picosecond pulses of laser energy used in Picoway treatments can stimulate collagen production and promote skin rejuvenation.

Collagen is a key protein that provides structure and elasticity to the skin. By triggering collagen production, Picoway laser treatments may help improve the overall texture and appearance of the skin, including reducing fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars. Additionally, the laser energy can help tighten and firm the skin, resulting in a smoother and more youthful complexion.

In fact, because their technology is so amazing for our skin, we invested in additional lasers so we can perform laser skin treatments, just one more way DAELA is showing our commitment to our clients natural, breathtaking, authenticity.

Can cosmetic tattoos be fully removed with a laser?

Yes. The number of sessions may vary between individuals as will the desire to fully or partially remove.

The important thing is that while it may take a several months to remove and reapply, you will enjoy the new permanent makeup for years to come. The choice is a long-term commitment, not a short-term inconvenience!

There are also many new styles of brow tattoos, new pigments and new techniques. Laser cosmetic tattoo removal can give you the ability to reinvent your older permanent makeup, in favor of a newer technique.

How Painful is Cosmetic Tattoo Removal with the PicoWay Laser?

The PicoWay laser is commonly accepted as the best laser on the market for three reasons:

  1. Effectiveness of removal: The PicoWay laser is renowned for its exceptional effectiveness in removing tattoos. Its advanced picosecond technology delivers ultra-short pulses of laser energy, which effectively target and break down tattoo pigment particles into smaller fragments.
  2. Lessened pain during removal: One of the key advantages of the PicoWay laser is its ability to provide a more comfortable tattoo removal experience for patients. The ultra-short pulses of laser energy minimize heat buildup in the skin, reducing the sensation of pain and discomfort during treatment. Additionally, the PicoWay laser’s innovative technology allows for faster treatment sessions, further minimizing discomfort for patients.
  3. Fewer sessions required for removal: Another significant benefit of the PicoWay laser is its ability to achieve optimal tattoo removal results in fewer treatment sessions compared to other laser technologies. The ultra-short picosecond pulses of laser energy effectively break down tattoo pigment particles into smaller fragments, which are then eliminated by the body’s natural processes. This efficient process allows for faster clearance of tattoo ink, reducing the number of sessions required to achieve desired results.

How many laser sessions are required for cosmetic tattoo removal?

Cosmetic tattoo removal typically involves multiple sessions, varying depending on the type and complexity of the tattoo. While the process may require several sessions for complete removal, the results are often well worth the journey. Most typically 3 sessions are required for removal, though this will vary based on each person’s unique situation.

You will be left with a simple choice to make: “Should I have fresh cosmetic tattoos applied, offering years of beauty, ease, and convenience or should I keep the canvas clean?”

How much time in between cosmetic tattoo removal sessions?

The time between cosmetic tattoo removal sessions varies depending on several factors, including the size, color, and complexity of the tattoo, as well as individual skin characteristics and response to treatment. In general, most practitioners recommend spacing laser tattoo removal sessions approximately 4 to 6 weeks apart.

This interval allows for optimal healing and recovery between sessions while giving the body enough time to eliminate the fragmented pigment particles. Additionally, spacing treatments several weeks apart helps minimize the risk of adverse reactions, such as scarring or pigment changes, and allows the clinician to assess the progress of tattoo removal and adjust the treatment plan as needed.

Every journey of cosmetic tattoo removal is unique. Embrace Your Journey. Whether you’re considering cosmetic tattoo removal or simply exploring the possibilities of change, remember that your journey is uniquely yours. Embrace it with an open heart and a spirit of curiosity, knowing that each step forward brings you closer to the masterpiece you are destined to become. With the right tools, guidance, and mindset, the journey of cosmetic tattoo removal can be an empowering and inspiring chapter in your life’s story.
