Tattoo Removal

More and more people have their tattoos removed. Their self-perception has changed, their new job requires to get rid of it or it simply has transformed and looks unaesthetic by now. We provide either complete tattoo removal by laser treatment or prepare old tattoos for cover-up. Also permanent make-up is removed by us with lasers. Not all tattoo removal is the same. Methods such as waterjet-cutting, surgery or also abrasion techniques (such as e.g. salabrasion) are extremly painful and almost always cause remaining scars. We also highly recommend not to experiment with caustic lotions or unctions, which usually cause bad inflammation of the skin and consequently scars. Best results are shown in tattoo removal done with lasers. Which makes perfect sense, if you keep in mind how and of what tattoos are made in the first place.

So how does tattoo removal work?

Removing your tattoo step by step

When getting a tattoo, pigments are pierced into your skin with a needle. As the first skin layer, called epidermis, is razor-thin and regenerates constantly, the color needs to reach the second skin layer, the dermis. But it is only big and antisoluble pigments that can be permanently stored in your tissue. Smaller pigments are released to the lymphatic system by the so-called macrophages, which is Greek and translates into “devour cells”. To remove a tattoo, the colored skin parts are treated with the laser. The laser heats the big pigments up to several hundered degrees for a nanosecond and causes them to burst into tiny pieces. These little particles then are released to and broken down by your lymphatic system. As the laser can only remove the tattoo selectively, point by point, several treatment sessions are necessary, depending on the size of the tattoo.
# 1 The tattooing process
Tattoo needles pierce the color in the dermis. The empidermis being very, very thin allows for the color on the dermis to shine through. The marcophages cannot break down the big pigments through the lympathtic system.
# 2 Laser treatment
The energy of the laser heats up the big pigments till they burst into many little pieces.
# 3 Color removal
These little pigments are absorbed by the macrophages and broken down by the lymphatic system. Assure yourself and browse through the before-and-after photo gallery of our happy customers.

Consulting and treatment

Information about tattoo removal

Before even starting the treatment, tattoolos will inform you about the procedures of tattoo removal or the removal of unwanted permanent make-up and how you can best support a successful treatment yourself in an detailed and free-of-charge consultancy session. After this first meeting, we will fix another appointment and give you all important information also in writing. The duration of one laser treatment depends on the size of your tattoo, generally one session takes between ten and twenty minutes. We therefore kindly ask you to “bring a little bit of spare time” with you, so we can finish the treatment in peace and also have time for possible questions.
In between the single treatments there should a 4-6 weeks break, so that the treated area can heal and recover in between. Treatment costs depend on the ink, that was used and the type and size of the tattoo.
Thanks to a Q-switched Nd:YAG laser we are able to remove tattoos effectively and without causing pain or scars. Q-swtiched means, that the light of the laser is being accumulated and then released on the pigments on the skin in one highly compressed, extremly short light pulse. The light recognizes the relevant pigments and the shock wave of the laser pulse causes a mechanical disruption of the pigments.
Due to the extremly short time of the laser pulse, the surrounding skin stays safe and without scars.
But it is utterly important to also follow the tipps on how to care for the treated areas on your skin. Swelling and irritations, that can occur directly after treatment are best cured by putting cooling pads on them. Furthermore it is not unusual for slough (scarf) to occur on the tattoo. In order to stay without scars it is absolutely necessary not to scratch this area. Otherwise there will be permanent scars left. Another tabu is to wear things that are too tight or to sunbathe during the healing process. On the other hand fresh air is extremly important. Therefore you can not in any case put plaster on your tattoo. In the first two weeks after treatment, drink two glasses of pinaple juice per day. The enzymes of the pineapple support the recovery of the skin.
