A correction and coverup refer to procedures performed to alter or improve the appearance of previously applied permanent makeup. These procedures are typically done to address issues such as fading, discoloration, unevenness, or dissatisfaction with the original work.

A coverup involves applying new permanent makeup over an existing one to hide or camouflage it. This is often done when a client regrets the original design, color, or technique.
