WHAT IS REMOVAL?

Tattoo/Permanent Make-up Removal/Resurfacing/Lightening 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 Removal works?

here at INKOLOGY we use the PhiRemoval Technique and products that are produced in accordance with the highest industry standards.

 

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;

a scab 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.

Pain during the treatment varies from one individual to another. Some clients compare the pain to the one they feel when plucking eyebrows, while others experience the pain more intensely. clients who have their period usually experience stronger pain. We offer an optional mild topical anesthetics that can reduce the pain during the procedure.

The success of the treatment depends on the:

  • skin quality

  • post-treatment care

  • exposure to different external factors

 

All of these factors are out of the artist’s control, so any possibility to provide guarantees for the treatment is excluded.

 

at inkology we Always have a consultation for first-time clients where we will do a patch-test to eliminate the risk of an allergic reaction to the pigments before the treatment.

​Please inform the artist if any of the following apply to you:

  • have serious health problems

  • take some medicines

  • use prescription lotions on face

  • get regular botox or filler treatments

 

Familiarize yourself with treatment and post-treatment care thoroughly before the treatment!
