I went to a highly rated semi-permanent makeup specialist. I was very unhappy with the results. The shape was unflattering and uneven and the ink faded and looked pink/grey within a few weeks. I am currently having them removed, which is expensive and painful. I would recommend people think very long and hard about this. They will never fade completely and need to be retouched every year to two years.

Hi Everyone. I have completed my removal. It...
I have completed my removal. It finished in Dec 2012. It took me one year of time, pain and expense. My skin now needs at least six months to heal. My skin is pink but fading. I am happy with the results. My brows look miles better then they did with the spmu, but I cannot say if my skin will heal in full, leaving no trace. What I had was a milder version of rejuvi, but the process was the same.
1. The skin is broken with the same machine used to apply spmu.
2. A cream is applied that pulls the ink to the surface.
3. The ink is wiped away.
This process is repeated 2-3 times. Your skin will be red like an shallow wound. It will scab and remain so for 1-3 weeks. It all it depends how deep the removal was. Initial treatments will be deeper. As the skin is healing is must not get wet. You must not interfere with the scab.
Before deciding on this method I had a consultation for laser removal. Anyone thinking about laser needs to know what ink their spmu technician used. Mine was Iron Oxide which is commonly used. Iron Oxide does not respond well to laser. It can turn black or another random colour, and again will need multiple treatments. The Dr at my consultation advised me against it. To anyone thinking of having spmu, my advice is 'DO NOT DO IT'. It does not look natural in my opinion.
Since commenting on this forum I have had many public and private messages from people in distress. Anyone thinking of removal needs to know they run the risk of permanent scarring, be it laser or rejuvi. Do your research. Not all removal technicians have the experience required to remove spmu safely.
Again as a warning, I went to a highly publicised spmu technician.
