Color Corrections

The need to do color corrections can be frustrating. But have no fear, I have figured out how to do this. Because permanent make-up is in the dermal layer of the skin, you are looking at it through the layers of the epidermis. These layers are almost like glass. So, to fix an undesired color you have to create a barrier between the unwanted color and the desired color. It usually takes 3 procedures to perfect this. With each procedure it will look better and better.

And depending on the unwanted color, it requires more touch ups for a couple of years. The darker the unwanted color the harder it is to fix. Laser removal may be recommended. Blues and purple are the strongest colors while oranges and reds are easier. Iron oxide pigments turn a peachish,
pink color in a matter of a year or so. I fix these all the time, with great results. Blues and purples take more work to fix and sometimes, I do some removal myself on the area first.

Eyebrows are the easiest to fix. Eyeliner- and lip procedures are more challenging. I feel strongly that undesirable permanent make-up should be fixed; it’s terrible to be trying to hide something on your face. And chances are you really aren’t hiding it very well. Also, the reason to do permanent make-up is to look better and have to do less.
