Tattoo Removal & Redesign
Body art tattoo removal and adjustment procedures
Body art tattoo removal can be done for personal and aesthetic reasons. The number of people in the United States that have at least one tattoo is estimated at 45 million. The tattoo industry continues to thrive as a fashion statement, form of personal expression, and lifestyle hallmark. However, reasons for tattoo removal—like permanent cosmetic makeup—include environmental influences causing the ink to look discolored, smudged, and faded. Other reasons are personal regrets and lifestyle changes. A growing number of our clients are seeking tattoo adjustment and removal procedures for a new design.
Luckily, there is now a way to remove tattoos totally or partially.
Laser Removal Versus Natural Saline or TEPRSOL® Removal
Lasers commonly used in the industry easily remove most black and brown tattoos. In this procedure, tattoo ink or pigment is eliminated by breaking down and pushing the pigment/ink fragments deeper into the tissues to be depleted by the body.
However, laser treatments are traditionally very expensive, painful; and can cause blistering; they cannot treat certain ink colors due to the laser’s inability to break down lighter colors or colors that are very similar to the patient’s skin tone and are contraindicated for dark ethnic skin tones. Similarly, older tattoos are harder to remove and ink which has been placed in the deep layers of the skin is not reachable by conventional laser.
Laser removal visits are multiple (8 to 12), costly (depending on the size of the tattoo area the provider will treat per visit), and most lasers do not remove all pigment or ink tattoo colors.
TEPRSOL® or Saline natural tattoo removal
The Tatt2away® Tattoo Removal System is a natural ingredient, patented tattoo-removal technology acclaimed as the most innovative natural tattoo-removal technology available today. TEPRSOL® removes all color pigments and ink, is well respected by body art designers and permanent cosmetic makeup professionals for tattoo removal and re-design.
The Tatt2away® Tattoo Removal System works using a technique similar to that used in applying a tattoo:
- The skin is lightly abraded in a patented pattern to reduce scarring
- A patented solution developed by Rejuvetek Medical called TEPRSOL® is introduced instead of ink.
- TEPRSOL® relies on the body’s natural healing response to reject the ink from the body in the form of a scab, actually removing the ink from the body.
- Tatt2Away® treatments are designed to remove the tattoo in a series of visits for maximum results. The number of treatments depends on the size complexity, and location of the design. An average size tattoo (4 inches by 4 inches), may need 4 or 5 visits; the number of visits is determined during the initial consultation.
- Discomfort from the procedure is comparable to that of a tattoo being applied. Treatment sessions last about 20-30 minutes and time between treatment sessions is usually about six to eight weeks.
We are a certified Tatt2away® tattoo removal center.
Saline Tattoo Removal
Daisi saline tattoo removal is an effective method of tattoo elimination that has various advantages over traditional laser therapies. The saline method is effective on all types of tattoos, regardless of age, color, and location. All grades of tattoos, including permanent makeup and “homemade” tattoos done with India ink, are also easily treatable. The saline method is relatively painless in comparison to other methods of removal, which can cause blistering or potential scar formation. Treatment time and expense is also greatly reduced with the saline method; fewer treatments are necessary to obtain desired results.
The saline method is applied using traditional tattoo equipment in a fashion very similar to your original tattoo. In place of ink, a saline solution is used that penetrates the deeper layers of the skin to bond with ink molecules. As time passes, the body naturally recognizes these particles as foreign and pushes them to the surface of the skin. Similar to our Tatt2Away® method, these particles form a scab that later heals free of any tattoo ink or pigment.
At Daisi, we perform tattoo removal regularly using the saline removal method. At your consultation, we will discuss the proper evaluation of your tattoo removal needs, options, and benefits of tattoo removal procedures.
