Color adjustment – Shape adjustment – Removal
If you or someone you know have experienced the unfortunate mistake of a bad procedure, we can help.
Unfortunately permanent cosmetic is an industry that is not regulated in most of the United States. Unless a technician has a great understanding of color theory and skin, it is very common for mistakes to happen. Many women and men don’t get the required training and/or have the skills to perform permanent cosmetics. Which leaves us in a country full of permanent cosmetics gone bad!
Thankfully permanent cosmetics can be corrected in almost every situation and if not improved. Sometimes the mistakes are not as horrible as one might think. Many times with just a few minor corrections by either adding here or there to create balance and symmetry a correction can be done. At other times it is necessary for us to remove pigment(link to removal page) that might be in a bad place and then repigment with new shape. Color correction is usually needed as well, but not in every situation. Color corrections can make all the difference. What we would do is use a corrective pigment, and then neutralize the color, then put a more appealing shade to best fit your skin tone.
- Combinations of steps are taken and vary in every case. We always ensure you know the exact steps we need to take to reach the goal in the correction. By showing you with makeup pencils, either white pencils to show you exactly what we need to remove, or colored pencils to show you what we need to add. Together we will decide on the next step to achieve the best looking results. You are not in the dark and completely knowledgeable of the whole process before committing. Establishing a better and more confident you with permanent cosmetic corrections is our goal.
Methods to avoid in correcting your permanent makeup:
Letting a technician who did the job incorrectly, add flesh pigment to cover up. This method never works out. The pigment usually used hardly ever matches your skin tone. The tone of skin changes frequently and once a flesh pigment has been applied it does not change with our skin tone and usually sticks out more as our tone changes in the winter and summer. Also the pigment will fade with age and or product used around area again not matching skin tone. Another big reason to avoid this procedure is the fact that usually the lighter neutral color used will look unnatural because skin loses its transparency. This pigment will end up looking muddy and cloudy. Later on if you decide to remove this pigment by laser, the laser will turn this flesh color into black pigment. Also happens if an MIR is done. What we highly suggest is salt saline removal. After removal of pigment steps are then taken to correct color and/or shape adjustment.
Do not do laser removal this method is not necessary and dangerous around the face.

Note from Erica on Corrective Permanent Cosmetics:
Since the beginning of my career I have corrected permanent cosmetic procedures. I was 21 years old so a baby in the field. I did not know much. All I did know is that, a lot women out there needed help to feel and look better, and by correcting their poorly done procedure I could help. So quickly I told myself I will not do this to others and will learn color theory as well as removal in order to help others instill a better view on permanent cosmetics. I was completely terrified in doing this to someone and I knew the need to correct was major. In addition, having women walking around hating me and permanent cosmetics just made my stomach turn. My love for permanent cosmetics came at such a young age that I knew everyone should love permanent cosmetics, not feel ashamed and with a bad taste in their mouth.
Quickly I soon found myself starring at everyones eyebrows. At first just not knowing, I would say to myself how is she/he walking around with that color or shape they clearly cannot be happy or think that it is flattering. In a career where you cannot go up to a women and tell her she needs to see you, you have to learn to see what is wrong out there and know what not to do it to others.
After working with many clients and with wisdom I quickly learned so many women out there simply do not know the best shape or have been through such a bad experience that they fear going back to another technician. Really who could blame them. In consultations I learned most bad cosmetics could be corrected with just removing or adding a little . At other times it was purely just a bad shape. Sometimes one eyebrow looked great and the other not good at all, and at times it was both the color and the shape. I would see a lot of red or really ashy eyebrows that I knew could be corrected easily with the right color but how? So I searched and sought out many other technicians to help me figure out color theory. Thankfully more experienced master technicians and tattoo artist helped me out. I then experienced such a joy in helping others feel good again.
If you are someone out there experiencing this or know someone please come in. On a regular basis I fix poor permanent cosmetics, and can tell you it works and can be done. I know a lot of people lose faith and are destroyed emotionally which saddens me. I feel so bad for people who have been walking around embarrassed or have to wear tons of corrective makeup trying to conceal their bad work. I am here to tell you I can help. Now I don’t promise a miracle in one visit, but I will make your mornings better and help you feel better about permanent cosmetics.
On a good note sometimes it is just a little bit on the end or top that needs to be corrected and makes such a big difference. I also will ensure you know every step of the way, no tricks or deceiving costs. I never just say lay down and begin; you will know exactly what you are in for. Having a bad procedure can be psychologically draining and we are always are own worst critics. I know this all to well, but you don’t have to live with it anymore.
