What is permanent makeup pigment wiper?

Hate your microbladed brows? Sick of your tattooed freckles? Don't worry, help is at hand. As well as offering comprehensive semi-permanent makeup services, Kseniia also offers a pigment wiper service, to remove old pigment, if you've had a treatment with another practitioner that has left you less than impressed with the results.

A pigment wiper treatment is a gentle, but permanent way to remove unwanted pigment from anywhere on your face or body. Pigment wiper is most effective for using to remove unwanted grey, black, blue or green tones, and is ideal before a new microblading treatment, to remove enough pigment to give an even and complete result. (It is never advised to repeat SPMU over large amounts of existing pigment, as results can be patchy and uneven).

A pigment wiper treatment is very safe and is performed without using aggressive acids or abrasives. Instead, it uses fruit extracts and sea salt, in a similar way to an AHA or BHA exfoliator, which is applied to the old permanent makeup using the same techniques as microblading, using a machine to safely and gently work under the surface of the skin. There is no risk of scarring from a pigment wiper treatment. Usually, between 1-4 sessions, spaced 5-6 weeks apart, is sufficient to remove the majority of pigment. Do note that a pigment wiper treatment will usually only remove around 90-95% of pigment. In some instances, with certain types of old permanent makeup, laser pigment removal may be a better option. This is also a service that Kseniia offers, and she will discuss this with you at your consultation.

Anyone who is unhappy with semi-permanent makeup that they have, or for anyone who is looking to have a new treatment and needs pigment removal first. The treatment is suitable for brows, lips and eyeliner that has been incorrectly applied, has faded in patches or has migrated.

We cannot, unfortunately offer this treatment for pregnant women, but if you are breastfeeding and are able to pause feeding for 24 hours, we can carry out the treatment.

Does a permanent makeup pigment wiper treatment hurt?

It depends on the area being treated, but it will feel similar to when you had your permanent makeup applied, as it uses a similar process to microblading and other permanent makeup techniques, but instead, imparts the removal fluid under the skin.

How much does a permanent makeup pigment wiper treatment cost?

A pigment wiper treatment with Kseniia costs from £80, depending on the size of the area being treated. Please call her Gerrards Cross beauty lounge to enquire.
Before your permanent make-up pigment wiper treatment

We do not advise undertaking pigment wiper treatment during hot conditions, so please consider doing this treatment in winter, spring or autumn only.

Please avoid alcohol in the 24 hours before treatment. Please follow the same steps you would follow for the area of treatment that you would if you were having a permanent makeup treatment. (So, for example, if you are having the pigment wiper treatment on your brows, follow our pre-treatment advice for microblading.)

As one of the few salons offering pigment wiper in the UK and the only pigment wiper beauty clinic in Gerrards Cross, Kseniia is busy, so asks that her clients arrive 10 minutes before their treatment time, to ensure your treatment does not overrun and inconvenience other clients to her beauty studio.

Permanent make-up pigment wiper aftercare advice

⠀⠀⠀Keep the area as dry as possible for 48 hours after your post-treatment. When you shower, keep it quick and ensure the treated area is kept dry.

⠀⠀ ⠀Avoid touching the area as much as possible.

⠀⠀ ⠀On the evening of your treatment, apply a small amount of the healing cream provided by Kseniia before bed.

⠀⠀ ⠀On the second day, apply a thin amount of healing cream between 2-3 times per day. Continue this for the next week, and, if the area still feels dry, you can continue to apply the cream after this time.

⠀⠀ ⠀Avoid makeup for 7 days in the treated area. If your brows have been treated, avoid any makeup on the forehead area, to prevent it moving onto the freshly treated area.

⠀⠀ ⠀No saunas or swimming, tanning, cosmetic procedures, facials, peels, or anything that makes you sweat excessively for 14 days after your treatment.

⠀⠀ ⠀Avoid dusty environments and excessive pet dander for 14 days.
⠀⠀ ⠀Take care in the sun! Do not have this treatment before a holiday and be sure to avoid exposing the treated area to sun during the first 20 days of your recovery time.

⠀⠀ ⠀The treated area will darken after treatment. This is entirely normal and does not reflect the final outcome. This is just the natural cycle of the pigment being expelled from the skin. You may also experience a slight rash in the area that has been treated after around a week, post-treatment, or experience some swelling or scabbing in the days just after your treatment. This is all normal and part of the natural healing process.

⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀Avoid alcohol for 24 hours after your treatment.

⠀⠀ ⠀ Any scabbing or crusting should be left to fall of it's own accord. In your aftercare kit, you will find products to keep the treated area clean that can safely remove any flaking.

⠀⠀ ⠀⠀The pigment may not be removed evenly – this is normal and an anticipated part of the treatment. This is why safe and effective pigment wiper removal treatments are done over multiple sessions.

Do not touch or wash the area after treatment. There is still active solution on the treated area that will continue to work. Removing this may reduce the results. Be sure to keep the area dry for at least 48 hours after treatment.

Continue to keep that area clean and dry wherever possible.
