He myladylana, I was cautioned not to have laser treatment because the colour pigment can turn black? What was the name of this laser? Thank you.

Thank you to all for your advice. After waiting patiently for which is now a long 10 weeks. I decided on Salabrasion, (salt-saline solution) 4wks after treatment,only 20% lighter. Thinking whether the formula/solution of Tattoo vanish or tatt2away would be more effective in total removal?

It will fade a lot but if you are still not happy you can get them lasered off, I have seen this done in the last week and it really looks good, and just in one treatment

if you are still unhappy with the color of your scar camouflage, go have an areola reduction. they will cut out your current scar and start over, then hopefully you will like your new scar better than what you have now. i had an areola reduction for only $1000 and the doctor did it right in his office while i was awake and used a local anesthetic. so it's an easy procedure. the only downside to the areola reduction is that you are left with a thin white scar, and also the outer edge of your areola is firm all the way around because the doctor puts in a permanent suture so that your areola doesn't just stretch back out

Hello TSydney, I too, am sorry to hear that you are distressed. Your explanation of the procedure performed has left me with a few questions. First, when you say "Permanent Makeup" I am assuming you mean a camouflage colored pigment was placed into the scar? Camouflage pigments are usually flesh toned pigments, and are used to conceal scars. Is this the case? It sounds like perhaps there was a continuation of the areola color placed into the scar, and if so, the pigment pulled darker in the scar tissue. One must be very expert at placing ANY pigment into a scar. It's tricky and can often times leave hyper pigmentation as a result. scars are usually white (hypo pigmented) but if they're are not healed, or your skin tone is dark, you can have Hyper-pimentation.Please provide further data so that I can determine what a course of action may be for you. If you feel more comfortable taking this offline, then just contact me privately. Often times 1 week is not long enough to even know what you will see one healed.Also, you may want to share your concerns with the PMU Artist, and she will be able to offer he advice. In areola cases more than one visit is necessary to get an optimum result, so you should feel comfortable speaking with her about your concerns.

I am so sorry to hear you are so un-pleased with how things turned out. In some of the reviews I have read, the other community members mention their permanent make-up fading. We can hope that will be the case for you as well.
