Tattoo Removal Treatment
METHOD FOR VERY RECENT OR NEW TATTOOS
Pigment Lightening and Pigment Lifting Process
There are many products (wrecking balm) and processes (peels and microdermabrasion) that strive to lift or lighten the unwanted pigment. Lifting or correction is attempted by irritating the skin, inducing accelerated exfoliation, controlled burning of the skin with various laser treatments and the process of dermabrasion or sanding of the skin. All of these methods represent an assault on the skin, thus increasing the probability of scarring.
Primarily, the customer must notify the technician how long the pigment has been in the skin. It is easier to get fresh pigment out of the skin, versus pigment that’s been in the skin a long period of time. That being said, the success rate of lifting small amounts of pigment with this relatively new method has proven quite successful.
Fractional Laser/ Q-switch Combined Method
The medical field is always continuing to expand its studies. New methods regarding medical treatment are being discovered daily. We are finding out when you have come further along in your series of treatments and you do not have a lot of darker pigment left, It’s harder for the laser to see the lighter colors left behind. With a combination treatment with our Fractional Laser, we are able to get the tattoo nearer to 100% gone. The fractional 1540 laser vaporizes microscopic columns of our skin and puts microscopic holes in the skin. This allows for another, multiple avenues of escape! It forces the skin to grow back younger, tighter and without the memory of the scar/pigment. When doing tattoo removal, don’t use 1540 unless they have done at least 4 laser treatments
Tattoo Removal Treatment | Solution Method
For pre-treated, lighter, more faded tattoos, we may recommend using our Solution Method. This works by implanting the solution (much like implanting ink) with a tattoo needle. Thus, allowing solution to liquefy implanted ink and your body quickly responds by pushing solution and ink to the surface of your skin.
|Wipe away the ink!|
Regardless of the color, the tattoo is (unlike most lasers), the surfacing color will look brown (no matter what color the ink was). You can actually see the color wipe away! It is VERY important to keep the treated area very clean! The color should scab on the surface as a natural protective barrier, but you are also instructed to apply a bacitracin ointment and bandage over the area for more protection (twice daily). Treat this area like a wound that needs tending to. Use your judgment if the area seems too soggy from the ointment then let it safely air dry when you can. The objective is to let the “pigmented scab” dry out like a crust and SLOWLY slough off (over the next 2 weeks). As it sloughs off, it will take that bit of color with it. DO NOT try to pick it off!!! You do not want to risk getting germs in the wound, making it bleed, prolonging healing time or risk scarring. You may need more treatments depending on how much pigment YOUR body releases each time. Blue and Green colors seem to be a little more stubborn to release.
Pre-filled Scripts for Antibiotics Tattoo removal – To treat for infection; watch for poor circulation areas or anything over size tiny. Can have a reaction to the ink (especially RED ink) called dormant/latent allergy to pigment. Need to tell them to keep it clean, covered and ointment on it.
