Tattoo Removal has been performed with various tools during the history of tattooing. While tattoos were once considered permanent, it is now possible to remove them with treatments, fully or partially. Before the development of laser tattoo removal methods, common techniques included dermabrasion, TCA (Trichloroacetic acid, an acid that removes the top layers of skin, reaching as deep as the layer in which the tattoo ink resides), seal abrasion (scrubbing the skin with salt), cryosurgery and excision which is sometimes still used along with skin grafts for larger tattoos. Some early forms of tattoo removal included the injection or application of wine, lime, garlic or pigeon excrement. Tattoo removal by laser was performed with continuous-wave lasers initially, and later with Q-switched lasers, which became commercially available in the early 1990s. Today, “laser tattoo removal” usually refers to the non-invasive removal of tattoo pigments using Q-switched lasers. Typically, black and other darker-colored inks can be removed completely.
How PhiRemoval works?
The tattoo removal tool is used in a similar way as tattooing or micropigmenting , with the same equipment;
The tattoo extraction formula starts working almost immediately after drawing the original tattoo ink, moving upwardly through the skin;
The scab with tattoo ink will be formed over the treated area in the next few days. While the skin heals, even more unwanted tattoo ink will be drawn out;
The scab will start to peel off naturally, extracting the unwanted tattoo ink. You are likely to have a secondary scab containing even more tattoo ink;
After the procedure, and as long as you have the scab on the skin, keep the treated area dry.
Instructions for use tattoo removal:
- The number of passes – no more than 6;
- Do not try to clean everything in a single procedure;
- Add a small amount of product in a disposable container, prepare the working tools;
- Clean the skin with antiseptic;
- Preferably use anesthetic ointment 20-30 min before the procedure, then clean it;
- After assessing the skin type, carefully “fluff” the epidermal layer. Clean with water diluted with chlorhexidine or antiseptic solution.
- Movements are the same we use in a permanent makeup or tattoo. After the 2nd pass leave the product inside the skin for 2-5 min., but not longer, then clean it. Watch how permanent or tattoo ink is being cleaned. Clean with water diluted with chlorhexidine or antiseptic solution.
- The 3rd pass is repeated in the same way as the 2nd.
- 4th pass: watch whether the surrounding tissues are whitening: up to 0.5 – 1 mm whitening is acceptable.
- The product is left on the skin only for 2-3 min. Clean with water diluted with chlorhexidine or antiseptic solution.
- The 5-6 pass is required only if the skin appearance is not causing problems. If the skin is clean enough in certain areas, do not apply product on them. Work only in the areas where the unwanted pigment is left. Watch if the skin weeps, dry with sterile appliqués.
- Work quickly, without leaving your workplace.
- Apply neutralizer at the end of work. Clean with water diluted with chlorhexidine or antiseptic solution.
- Recommend post procedural ointments.
Always have a consultation with the artist before the treatment if you:
- have problematic skin
- have serious health problems
- take some medicines
Get familiar with the post-treatment flow thoroughly before the treatment.
