Microblading Removal

When do you need microblading removal?

You might be acutely aware you have a microblading disaster or tattoo ink that's gone a bad colour, or maybe your eyebrow tattoo needs emergency microblading removal right away!

In these instances you just know you'll need some tattoo removal of the permanent makeup unwanted pigment, but many clients who need saline microblading removal don't realise they do. Microblading and permanent makeup tattooists often recommend clients who visit for a touch up need a session or two of saline tattoo removal before new pigment is added

The pigment underneath distorts the color of microblading results, pigment colors can look dull and more sessions of pigment can result in skin damage and scar tissue. One or two sessions of new pigment every few years, results in saturated skin that needs an effective method of improving the treated area for the most satisfactory results of microbladed brows

When to correct and when to remove microblading

Think hairdressing terms!

I know microblading removal isn’t a word people really like to hear for their eyebrow tattoo, but let’s think about visiting your hair salon and chatting with the colorist about returning your hair to its natural hairs color, or a lighter color, after many years of coloring - they’d use a color remover to get rid of unwanted pigment in the hair

Microblading removal is similar in that your microblading technician is using Botched Ink saline solution to lift out the unwanted pigment, tattoo removal works on pigment migration too, so those blurred permanent makeup or microblading hair strokes can be improved and reworked!

Even with hair growth and root touch ups, a hairdresser either leaves the ends or just adds the color for a few minutes, it reacts differently. Laser removal of permanent makeup doesn't generally remove all the colours in eyebrow tattoo ink

Microblading removal is an effective method for your microblading technician to create new permanent makeup brows in one or two sessions

Out with the old, in with the new!

An experienced microblading technician knows how to add more pigment colors to give good lasting results, but just as often they know a top up will just make things dull or murky

It's unknown how many sessions of permanent makeup pigment can be implanted, before the skin is full and other methods need to be considered to give the best microblading results

Using removal methods to get rid of old eyebrows pigment gives the best opportunity to refresh tired brows, giving both technician and client more options for more sessions of microblading, maybe you'd permanent makeup hair strokes, or a softer more natural microblading brow shape or eyebrows color

Unfortunately permanent makeup pigments aren't as semi permanent as we might want them to be. If you decide to wait and see if microblading fades, you may wait for years!

To remove microblading with saline removal will be quicker and it won't damage your eyebrow hair like laser removal can! Laser treatment used a laser ray to shatter the unwanted pigment, just like for a regular tattoo on the body

Local anesthetic is rarely used before a laser tattoo removal treatment and laser removal can make the skin very difficult to implant new permanent makeup pigments. After a laser session the permanent makeup tattoo ink can just stay on the surface of the skin, not heal in to the eyebrows like we neet it to, and eyebrow hairs can be damaged in the treated area too

Microblading removal does saline tattoo removal work

See your true colour!

Permanent makeup and microblading pigment colours always looks pretty and fresh when there’s less pigment underneath

Adding new pigment won’t last long when it’s healed, as the old permanent makeup color underneath will cause a dull shadow. Dark, black or grey pigments and brow shapes keep coming back, so do strong russet tones

A few sessions of microblading removal will fix this, then any new permanent makeup pigment will look as intended, and your cosmetic tattoo eyebrows will last long after the skin heals

Different shapes and sizes!

Maybe there’s multiple visible eyebrows and shapes going on, or some areas are more solid with pigment than others and can’t be smoothed without the pigment going solid

You just can’t hide all old permanent makeup shapes, to hide eyebrows and bad shapes you’d need to go bigger, and that’s not always wanted. Botched Ink saline removal process works by floating out the old ink colors and pigments

You can’t squeeze more in!

If the skin is compacted and solid, full of old microblading and permanent makeup pigment there’s simply no room for anymore!

What might look great as you walk out the door, won’t heal, the visible colour was in the surface of the skin, and that comes away during healing process. Other methods need to be considered, and microblading removal by a Botched Ink trained specialist works!

Salt and saline tattoo removal for botched microblading

Which is the best microblading removal method?

Opinions will always differ to the best method for removing microblading and permanent makeup tattoo ink. The best saline removal method is the one that consistently gets good results, and is the most comfortable during a treatment, making you happier about returning for another!

The best microblading removal method must also leave the skin in a condition that's able to be reworked if the client wants fresh new eyebrows after!

Saline tattoo removal is the most popular cosmetic tattoo removal method, but so is basic salt and saline! 100s of techs and their clients, believe that Botched Ink saline microblading removal is the best removal method for eyebrows

Whichever removal method you choose, allow the technician 3 sessions before you make any success or failure decisions of the removal process

However if your skin is showing any tenderness or prolonged redness between treatments, perhaps you need to find a microblading technician who uses a kinder removal treatment. Botched Ink removal is a gentle process, lifting unwanted pigments from the skin without damage or infection

Tattoo removal is a process and laser tattoo removal is not generally suitable to remove microblading. Laser removal cannot see and get rid of all the colours that make brown permanent makeup pigment, black, white, red, yellow and green tattoo ink

Also consider that it's always Botched Ink first, laser second if you change your mind. Laser draws pigment into the skin, Botched Ink draws it out!

The Quick Truth about Saline microblading Removal!

Historically salt and saline was the option for tattoo removal, as a home or professional treatment. Within the last 10 years professional removal products became available to technicians, with 3 brands becoming the best known: Botched Ink, Li-FT and A+Ocean

In the last few years, as saline removal has become very popular, industry suppliers came along with their versions of salt and saline. Some have little product development from salt and salty water, with a painful treatment and difficult healing process

This ‘back-to-basics’ for saline removal is concerning, especially when clients want results on their eyebrows!

Different Saline tattoo removal solutions

Much of the info I’m sharing with you in this section is included in the info we share with a trained microblading technician

I feel it’s only right to share microblading removal information with you, giving you an understanding of the removal process and products available to professionals to remove microblading

The different types of saline removal products available needs some explaining, and you might say that some sound more professional than others. Why is a saline removal professional still offering basic and painful salt and saline removal?

There are DIY home eyebrow tattoo removal remedies like basic salt and liquid saline, Supplier Brands (think of a big shop that puts their label on products made under their name) offering saline removal kits with a variety of removal solutions based on salt and saline

This saline removal kit may be just a bottle or jar of salt and a bottle of saline with a fancy label, check the saline ingredients! The healing process and pain during a removal treatment with these unrefined products can cause scarring and need vitamin e oil to soothe the skin damage that can feel worse than after laser removal

And then there’s the specialist recognised removal brands with their own saline solution developed specifically for tattoo removal, with additional ingredients added to remove tattoos faster and easier than ever before!

Why is Botched Ink different?

What’s the difference between recognised saline removal brands and supplier brands?

A world-leading recognised tattoo removal brand invests in product development and building their products reputation for microblading removal and the results they achieve with saline removal

A supplier brand invests in developing a best-selling solution for removing tattooed eyebrows, with the emphasis on best selling! This can include rebranding existing products, or creating new mixes to suit different budgets and industry demands

You don't tend to see the focus on results that you would with a recognised tattoo removal brand

What are home remedies?

Home remedies are products that can be purchased at a convenience store. When you have a tattoo, salt and saline can be an excruciating solution to remove it, rubbing salt in a wound really stings!

It’s not recommended as a home remedy or professional treatment.

Botched Ink dries out skin within an hour!

Salt usually makes skin wet (just think of cooking pork crackling!) and this causes irritation during healing. Botched Ink dries out skin super quick, this means healing is just a thin dried out skin scab, not a proper wound healing one. It's all down to the ingredients we use!

We don't supply everyone who wants it!

We protect clients by ensuring that Botched Ink is only supplied to our officially trained technicians. We're the only saline tattoo removal brand to do this, with other products sold to anyone who wants it, trained or otherwise!

Botched Ink Saline solution always potent and Hygienic

Botched Ink is leading the way for potency and hygiene with our single use sachets, so you can be sure a Botched Ink treatment will always be its most effective!

Others come in jars or bottles which when opened have a limited shelf or need refrigeration, and basic salt and saline is messy and painful to remove!

Skin friendly pH

Botched Ink is pH-adjusted to feel comfortable during a treatment. Home remedies will feel painful and stinging as salt in a wound is not a nice experience

Botched Ink is the only saline solution to claim a skin friendly pH. Numbing cream is still used during a treatment, making a Botched Ink treatment pretty uneventful

Our method doesn't require multiple passes

The more passes a treatment needs, the more painful it will be for you! Numbing cream wears off quickly during any removal treatment, and salt burns

Botched Ink has been formulated to implant super easily into the skin, in just one pass. This all means less painful removal treatments for you!

Does Botched Ink work?

You'll see 100s of photos of permanent makeup eyebrows and microblading removal in our gallery page

What happened during the microblading treatment ?

From Amani, the Microblading Client

The practitioner and I discussed the shape of my eyebrows. My eyebrows are naturally quite full, but I wanted to add hairs to where it was sparse and bring the eyebrows in by adding more hairs to the front. She drew an outline of my eyebrows and I asked her if they would be as thick as the outline. She said that they wouldn’t and new strokes would just go above my natural brow shape

After the tattooing was finished, I looked into the mirror and was shocked to see the result. Instead of natural looking brows, I was left with dark, thick and unnatural looking eyebrows. They looked as though someone had drawn on my brows. I was truly horrified and felt like a monster. All I could think was ‘how do I get rid of these’

How could the microblading treatment have ended more positively?

The practitioner could have firstly ensured that the shape/size of the eyebrows were something that I wanted. It’s truly shocking that a qualified practitioner would even think that a client, whose first time it was having microblading, would want such eyebrows. Her judgement was extremely poor

I would also say that half way through the procedure, she could have shown me what the eyebrows looked like. At that point, less damage would have been done and I would have not continued on with the tattoo

Did you let the microblading artist know you were unhappy?

I did. The practitioner apologised multiple times. A few days later, I asked for refund. Instead of talking responsibility, she instead blamed me

What made you decide to have microblading removal?

Immediately after getting the tattoo, I researched ways to remove them. I first found laser tattoo removal, but after reading about hair loss and scarring, I decided it wasn’t for me. I then found out there was saline tattoo remove and that it could be done in emergency cases. I went on to find practitioners who offered this service and found Eva’s salon

Eva was very concerned and attentive and wanted to make sure I had them removed sooner rather than later. It put me at ease knowing that something could be done to remove the tattoo

How do you feel now, after Botched Ink® microblading removal?

I feel so much better now that I have had my first session. Compared to how dark and thick they were, they are now faded and I feel more confident. It’s a massive improvement and am looking forward to my second session.

These photos show the improvement 16 days after the Botched Ink® emergency tattoo removal treatment.  Amani's skin is still healing, but you can see how little inflammation is caused when using our solution

From the Microblading Removal Technician

Eva Estrada Kockova from Brow Boutique in London, UK

Can you describe your initial contact with the client

I received a phone call from Amani in the evening. She said I had my brows nanobladed yesterday and I need a removal. I said come in tomorrow evening

Then she sent a picture over and I called her saying come in tomorrow morning at 9am as I knew the earlier I get her in the better result I would achieve. So got up in the morning early to open before opening hours as I felt so sorry for her

I couldn't believe my own eyes when I saw her eyebrows! She basically didn't have words to explain her feelings. She just said, I still can't believe I have this on my face. She walked in with a wig covering her full forehead and she was going to wear it until the crusts are all gone

The removal was slightly uncomfortable for her as the nano blading was still fresh. I explained her everything from A to Z and felt like she was so desperate poor thing. 2 weeks later I followed up with her and she was over the moon with the result of removal.

How do you feel, being able to help clients with Botched Ink saline removal?

Having a solution for clients like Amani feels powerful! Seeing amazing results and positive feedback from clients just blows my mind

Botched ink has helped my business in such a way where I don't have to say to clients sorry I can't help you because I now have a solution for those who need an emergency tattoo removal and also for those who have walked around with horrible eyebrows for a while. Thanks Lisa! It was a pleasure doing the course with you!

Fully Healed After Emergency Microblading Removal

Healed after one Botched Ink® emergency saline tattoo removal treatment. Amani says  "A little bit of pigment remains. It’s mostly a subtle, faded grey colour

My eyebrows cover the tattoo, it’s just the front part that is still a little bit visible." and thanks us for giving her the platform to spread awareness about botched tattoos. She's consulting with her technician about having a second treatment
