HOW TO CORRECT PERMANENT MAKEUP

Jan 20, 2020

Let us start by saying that all hope isn’t lost when you have bad PMU! You have options. PMU can either be the color or shape, or both. Color mishaps are, unfortunately, not uncommon due to the preponderance of bad tattoo inks and poor application techniques. It is important to use pigment by manufacturers that have a proven track record.

Permanent Makeup Color Correction: This technique is used when the shape of the eyebrow, eyeliner, or lip liner tattoo is good but the color is poor.  When assessing correctional work to be performed on the area, it is important to first remove the unwanted color, and then add the desired color. A corrective pigment color is implanted (tattooed) over the faded makeup to “neutralize” it toward a more natural shade. Usually the improvement is immediately noticeable. Something to consider is that corrections take time! You cannot be in a hurry to fix this problem, but it can be fixed!

Permanent Makeup Shape Correction: Sometimes the shape of permanent eyebrows or lip liner is not terrible, yet it would look better with a few changes. In these cases, additional makeup tattooing might improve the shape, symmetry or balance of uneven permanent eyeliner or eyebrows. The tattooing necessary to correct the eyebrows or eyeliner may increase their thickness. If the extra tattooing will not look good, then some of the old pigment must be removed first before proceeding.
