Pigmentation Removal

Have you had any tattoo or semi-permanent work done on your eyebrows in the past that you would like to remove? There are two ways to remove this, either by laser which can be done by a licensed physician or using our pigmentation removal service where we apply a highly concentrated salt solution to the unwanted pigmented area. The effectiveness of this service and number of sessions depends on color and age of your tattoo and skin condition. A complimentary consultation with one of our artists is recommended prior to this service to provide you with the best solution.
