How is the pigment removed from the unwanted area?

We remove the pigment using a tattoo gun and a lifting serum. The tattoo gun breaks up the ink particles and the serum helps push the pigment up to the surface.

Does the procedure hurt?

A highly-effective, topical anesthetic cream  is used for numbing before your procedure. Pain threshold levels vary from person to person and every effort is made to ensure you remain comfortable for the entirety of the procedure.  If you are on your menstrual cycle you will be a bit more sensitive towards the pain.

How many lifting sessions is needed before I see desired results?

How many sessions has many factors:
· how deep your previous artist went
· how many sessions you have had previously
· the age of the tattoo
· what pigment was used
· thickness of skin
We always say an average 1-6 sessions to see desired results (although it is never guaranteed)

What can I expect during the healing stage?

During the healing time you may be red and scabby.  This is completely normal, please let your scabs fall off naturally.   It will last on average 6-10 days.

Can I get cosmetic tattoo removal if I am pregnant or nursing?

As a precaution, we do not perform cosmetic tattoo removals on pregnant or nursing women.

How old do you have to be to get tattoo removal?

You must be 18 years of age or older to get your tattoo removal service at Brownude.

Can this technique cause scarring?

We give you ample time to heal before we go in for another procedure to avoid scarring. We never go in as deep as your previous artist.
