Hi, I sent a question regarding tattoo removal on my eyebrows last month (about the 18th of April, I think) but did not receive a response. Do you have any photographs of this procedure? How can you ensure that the hair isn’t also removed (a place in Sydney said removing the tattoo would remove the hair as well). Please advise. Would be happy to fly down to Melbourne if you could provide some comfort that I could retain my eyebrows.
Laser tattoo of the eyebrows can be treated with our q-switched nd:yag laser (Revlite/Medlite) laser.
Removal of the eyebrows in our experience is not likely unless very high settings are used. Even if they are removed, the hair removal is temporary. Generally, we don’t see this.
In most cases, significant lightening or removal occurs in about 5 treatments (on average).
