How To Safely Remove Cosmetic Tattoos

Eden safely remove cosmetic tattoosHave you ever noticed people with blue, grey or red eyebrows that look really out of place as they don’t match their complexion or hair tone? Chances are that they have had cosmetic eyebrow tattooing and the colour has faded to a different colour over time. Or they have tried to have them removed but have been left with a different colour, or darker eyebrows. This can happen with all cosmetic tattoos as the ink used in this form of tattooing is different to traditional tattoos.


There is only one medical device that is FDA approved for the removal of cosmetic tattoos. Using any other system risks removing certain colours and leaving others, or changing the pigment colour, meaning you could be left with any shade of tattoo. Find out why the PicoWay is the only FDA approved system for removing cosmetic tattoos.


PicoWay is the only FDA approved system for safely and effectively removing cosmetic tattoos.

The PicoWay is different as the treatment generates next to no heat. With its photoacoustic effect it uses an ultra-fast shockwave to shatter the tattoo ink into the tiniest particles which your body’s immune system then clears through its natural cleansing processes.

Alternative lasers use mostly photothermal (heat) energy to target the ink which has the potential to change the colour of the ink or make it darker. The heat can also damage the surrounding tissue (especially on delicate facial skin) which can lead to scarring. The remaining colour can vary from light brown to warm red or blue and may not be suitable for further laser treatment.



The ink used is different to traditional tattoo artists. When cosmetic artists need to get just the right colour, they mix various different pigments together to get exactly the right shade. This means you could have two, three, four or more pigment colours in the ink used for your tattoo.

With lasers, different wavelengths target different colours and some lasers are incapable of treating certain colours. You may be left with a colour that your clinician cannot remove simply because their device is not capable. It may also have the opposite effect of what you are trying to achieve by making the ink darker rather than removing it.
