Permanent make-up removal is in 90% of cases a course of procedures, sometimes involving a beautician to carry out skin quality maintenance. None of the remover manufacturers show examples of removal, backed up by photos of all the steps from start to finish. Except Yourwings! In this article, let’s take a look at Victoria Tomaszywska’s case study of removing eyelashes with Yourwings Remover.
The longer the permanent make-up industry has existed, the fewer clients with ‘clean’ skin. Even now, about 80% of the clients come from old jobs. Fashions are changing. What used to be considered beautiful and topical is now a sign of age or simply doesn’t suit one’s face. And everyone wants to look young, well-groomed and modern.
The client had her eyelids volumetrically shaded as she likes bright eye make-up. The final result was not satisfactory, but over time the permanent make-up on her eyes did not lighten and it was impossible to overlap it.
Look at the before and after photos. Usually this kind of work is a source of much admiration, but also a question: ‘How is it possible? The answer is: “Yes, it is possible, thanks to the unique properties of Yourwings Removers, the professionalism of the chemical remover and the patience of the client.” In this case, it took 3 years to remove and overlay permanent make-up.
The first removal was carried out in 2018, and the pigment layers became clearly visible afterwards. It became clear that the base of the permanent make-up was a black arrow, made with the mineral pigments of yesteryear. Above it is the then trendy shading with organic pigments and a volumetric highlighting with white titanium dioxide. Removing such a “multi-layered cake” is a colossally complex job that requires the unmistakable professionalism of a specialist.
Organic pigments give a dense “putty” finish that bears little resemblance to aesthetics, as you can see in the photo. This type of pigment is very difficult to remove. Although the remover was effective it was difficult to “remove” the pigment density and a clean eyelid could not be created easily. Also, it should be considered that this skin type after treatment and complete removal of pigment held vascular redness, which created the illusion of brightness of permanent makeup. For the laser destruction of the vessels in this work, a vascular cosmetic surgeon was employed on two occasions. This shortened the rehabilitation period and made it possible to start the next removal procedure sooner. In 3 sessions, with long breaks for skin recovery and treatments from the beautician, it was possible to remove the shading almost completely.
After the coloured organic pigment was removed, it was decided to remove the black arrow using a laser, but this method did not produce a significant result. Therefore, together with the client, it was decided to stop with the achieved result and move on to the creation of beautiful permanent make-up, according to the client’s wishes, also bright, but in line with current fashion trends.
With such long courses of treatments, a mutual understanding between the practitioner and the client is always important. Thanks to the trust of our client, who understood the complexity of the process, the final result exceeded all expectations.
