Non-Laser & Laser Tattoo Removal: Common Questions

Non-Laser Tattoo Removal Questions and Answers

What is the Tattoo Vanish process like?

We use a local anesthetic to help make you as comfortable as possible. This is also used during the session. Next our technician uses a tattoo machine in the unwanted tattoo, tracing it in a way akin to what you experienced when the tattoo was originally done. The next step is applying Ink Eraser for a short amount of time, which is what draws out the ink. Afterwards it is cleaned and bandaged, and we provide complete details on how to handle after care for the most safety and best results.

How much does Tattoo Vanish hurt?

Well, some people say it does not hurt that much and others describe it as mildly uncomfortable, since everyone has different pain tolerance. The good news is our team are dedicated to making you as comfortable as possible. The topical anesthetic that we use before and during the Tattoo Vanish process is effective at taking the edge off and making it something nearly anyone will be able to tolerate without any big issues.

What is the deracination serum? And how does it work?

We are happy to share that the UNDO removal system only contains all-natural ingredients which have been proven to be safe. Highlights of the formula include bentonite, aloe leaf extract and hydrolyzed sodium hyaluronate. The serum works to awaken the ink underneath the skin and draw it to the surface, so that it can be expelled. Another aspect of the serum which is quite important is how well it hydrates the skin. This goes a long way in preventing scarring and other possible issues.

How many sessions before the tattoo is gone?

Many factors go into determining this like the size of the tattoo, how deep the tattoo ink is, how healthy you are, and what kind of ink was used for the tattoo. One thing is certain: it will be much less time than if you went with laser tattoo removal. A small tattoo something only takes two or three sessions with our non-laser tattoo removal process. Contact us and we can discuss your tattoo and give you an educated estimate.

What are the Ingredients in the Treatment Masks?

The UNDO Lifting Clay mask is a unique blend of natural ingredients based on the traditional calcium bentonite clay masks that have been used for hundreds of years to make skin more health and vibrant. The other natural ingredients attract and draw out both toxins and the tattoo ink during the Deracination process. The Healing Microcurrent masks smartly make the best use of Tissue X™ technology, used by many dermatologists, for its powerful transdermal delivery ability. This helps the active ingredients and healing compounds, such as hyaluronic acid, go as deep into the skin as possible.

Laser Tattoo Removal Questions and Answers

How does a laser remove tattoos?

There is a long history behind laser tattoo removal being used. The first was way back in 1967 where a forward-thinking Dr. Leon Goldman used a 694 Ruby Laser to remove a patient’s tattoo. The results were nowhere near as good then as they are now, with huge advances being made in both technology and technique.

How the laser works to remove a tattoo is quite easy to understand. A tattoo is basically just ink trapped under the skin. When laser light is used, it breaks up the ink it reaches from the closest to the deepest layers of the skin. The ink is that processed though the body and excreted. Multiple sessions are required to see strong results.

Which is more effective for tattoo removal Q-Switched or Picosecond?

It would be fair to say that the PicoSure and Quanta Q Plus C lasers are both great machines for tattoo removal.  The PicoSure can treat primarily blue, black (not as effectively, though), and green. In contrast, The Quanta Q plus C can treat all colors, making it a unique ability.  Check out our video at here to see this subject broken down thoroughly.  To treat all colors with three accurate wavelengths, Quanta Aesthetic Lasers have been marketing the Evo Q plus C on the market as the only device.

These marketing claims have been verified around the world by clinics. Validation on a big scale has been pursued in line with these claims.

Effectiveness and fast delivery have been the epitome of marketing campaigns on these devices by The Picosecond laser manufacturers. They claim that the results for nanosecond systems are “100x less fast”than Picosecond.

So, what is the real story?

Such marketing claims are now under scrutiny and have been put to validity testing due to a class action lawsuit taken against PicoSure/CynoSure in recent times. “The promotional material was also supplied to Plaintiffs’ customers, which resulted in false expectations that were ultimately disappointing because actual performance was worse than the older, less expensive lasers could achieve. ” You can check out the below-mentioned source for reliable information.

How much does laser tattoo removal hurt?

We are not going to pretend the process does not hurt, it certainly does. However, we use a breakthrough device, the Zimmer Cryo 6, which uses cold air to help reduce pain and thermal injury.

How Many Treatments Will be Required?

This depends on the details of the tattoo as well as factors related to the patient. Laser tattoo removal on average takes 8-12 sessions. One session can be done in the same are once every 6 weeks. So, you can expect it to take a year or even longer for the process to be completed.

  • Skin type
