Eyebrow Embroidery Gone Wrong
Eyebrow Embroidery Removal Option 1: Wait for It to Fade
You certainly don’t want to hear this advice after a botched job. With good reason, you’d want to wash those marks off your face as soon as possible! Although at a time like this, it’s easy for emotion to overtake reason, and you might dismiss the possibility of just doing nothing more about your pigmented areas.
Removing pigments can have the same risk as tattooing it. Both may cause infection, scarring, or changes in skin pigmentation. Also, redness and swelling are likely to occur briefly after each session. A full course of treatments can take weeks or months to complete. It usually takes some time for you to see the final result of your eyebrow embroidery.
Eyebrow Embroidery Post-Healing
With that in mind, it takes around 1-2 weeks to heal and another 1-2 weeks for the pigment to settle in for microbladed brows. Likewise, for misty/ombre shading powder brows, it takes around one week to heal and 1-2 weeks for the pigment to settle in. However, everyone is unique, so this timeline is only a guide. Therefore during this time, if you don’t like what you see, skip the 3-6 months touch-up session. The touch-up improve the amount of time your new eyebrows last, for this reason missing the touch-up will speed up fading. The touch-up is also a chance for the brow artist to correct some minor problems, such as the pigment fading. If you feel that the issue is small, you may try speaking to your brow artist about it for fixing.
Micro-pigments typically fades on its own after one to two years, unless you have a touch-up. The new brow can look reasonable to you after one year. When waiting for fading to happen, you can cover or blend away areas of your eyebrow that you don’t like with concealer and makeup. While this approach to your eyebrow embroidery disaster may require regular makeup, this solution is cheap, painless, non-invasive and safe. If this method is not an ideal choice, the next option will speed up the fading process while still being nearly risk-free.

Eyebrow Embroidery Removal Option 2: Ignore After-care Instructions
Most likely you left your eyebrow embroidery session with a list of do’s, and dont’s on how to keep your new brows looking nice and fresh for as long as possible. Take that advice and do the entire opposite! Just do the opposite of what you should do to help your skin retain pigments and get rid of your eyebrow embroidery disaster. For example, to prevent pigment from fading, clients are advised to avoid excessive sweating for the first few weeks. However, if you are not happy with the way your brows turn out, you should increase your exercising or taking a sauna every day. Sweating can help to wash out some of the newly deposited pigmentations.
For this reason, we have listed the other steps which you may take:
- Exposure to sunlight
- Go swimming
- Go for laser or chemical treatment to your face
- Continue to use anti-ageing or anti-acne cream of facial products
Note: Please do not touch or peel the scabs during healing as it may result in scarring or infection
Eyebrow Embroidery Removal Option 3: Visit a qualified Semi-Permanent Makeup Artist
In case you’ve just got a botched eyebrow embroidery, most likely you’re not in the most trusting state of mind! Hence you might not have that same level of trust in a semi-permanent makeup artist. Despite that, you may still be willing to try other artists to help you remove or correct the botched eyebrow job. After all, these artists have varying ways to remove cosmetic and conventional tattoos. Methods used fall into a variety of groups.
PhiRemoval non-laser tattoo removal
Here at JPro Beauty, we adopted the use of PhiRemoval as our choice of non-laser tattoo removal. Earlier we said that using cleaners and creams with different acids can help remove permanent makeup at home.
For this reason, those who wish for faster results and are ready to accept more risk, acids can be used with the same types of devices used during SPM. PhiRemoval is an example of one such method used to remove existing tattoos.
Firstly, the skin is cleansed, and then numbing cream is applied. Once numbing takes effect, the artist uses single-use needles and dips it into the PhiRemoval solution. Next, she starts to shade into the pigmented area that is affected. This action enables the solution to enter below the outermost surface layer of the skin. PhiRemoval mixes and dissolves the pigment, some of which rises to the surface of the skin and clean off with sterile gauze. There will be some minor bleeding, and there might be minor scarring for some people (same as microblading).
Lastly, scabbing is common during healing and helps to draw out pigment as well. A course of PhiRemoval usually requires several sessions, similar to laser removal but is a lot cheaper.
Colour correction involves the insertion of new SPM pigment over the botched area to enhance the overall look. It requires a lot more skill from the artist and is much harder as compared to doing a good brow job in the first place.
The most qualified and skilled artist should only do colour correction. Our Master Trainer Artist Jade has undergone professional training in PhiRemoval and has years of experience in semi-permanent makeup. For this reason, it enables her to understand and help our customers in getting good results.
