TATTOO REMOVAL

TATTOO REMOVAL

More and more people get their tattoo removed. Their self-image changed, their job requires the removal or the tattoo turned unsightly and does not fit to the new self-image. We remove tattoos by laser either completely or prepare it for a cover-up. We also remove permanent make-up, Conture make-up and microblading with our lasers gently and kind to skin. Not every tattoo removal is the same. Methods like waterjet-cutting, surgical removal or the abrasion of tattoos are extremely painful and almost always create scars. Also the usage of corrosive creams is not recommendable, because the skin often reacts with severe inflammation and scarring. The best results for tattoo removal can be achieved by laser technology. The laser is the most effective and gentlest way to remove unwanted tattoos and permanent make-up.

#1 HOW MUCH DOES A TATTOO REMOVAL COST?

#2 HOW LONG DOES THE TATTOO REMOVAL TAKE?


The bigger the tattoo, the longer the removal takes - especially, if it contains a larger colourful area. The more colour pigments the skin has absorbed, the more effort the removal takes. Also the age plays an important role. Usually, the younger a tattoo is, the easier it can be removed. Exceptions are older, badly done or already faded tattoos. If the tattoo is still very new, it can be completely removed after a few treatments. This can only be said with certainty for professional tattoos.

Amateurs and badly trained tattoo artists often insert the colour into the wrong skin layer. If the tattoo is placed too superficially, the colour can easily “bleed out”. If it is done too deeply, the removal can be very difficult, because the small colour nodules are stored in the fat layer. Luckily, this mostly happens in very few single spots. The used tattoo ink also contributes to how easily it can be removed and the amount of costs. Until a couple of years ago there were no restrictions regarding the composition of tattoo ink and even today, it contains many unknown substances.

With lighter colours, such as yellow, red or light green the removal also takes longer. It is possible, that even after the average amount of sessions (between eight and twelve treatments) some ink residue may remain in the skin. These would have to be removed with an additional laser (e.g. 4 wavelength laser). Every laser works in a different wave range and is for some colours more suitable than for others. As a rule of thumb you can estimate:

The more time you spend at the tattoo artist’s, the more time you should plan for your tattoo removal.


If you want to prepare your tattoo for a cover-up, it usually takes only between two to four treatments. The skin texture and applied colour amount determine, how much time has to pass between each laser treatment and how quickly the intensity of the laser can be increased from session to session. Depending on the skin type this process can be done quicker or more slowly and thus requires more or fewer treatments. The removal of permanent make-up is a special case. In the face our laser experts have to be even more cautious than in less exposed areas.

#3 HOW PAINFUL IS THE TREATMENT?


You know yourself and your body best. Everyone reacts differently. Many clients are happy to finally get rid of the tattoo and take it positively. When you are stressed or sick you are often more sensitive to pain, so please plan your following appointments accordingly. Many clients say, that it feels uncomfortable - like a rubber band that snaps against your skin. Others consider the pain similar to getting the tattoo. Since the laser is working very quickly, you can already relax after a couple of minutes. Afterwards it does not hurt anymore.

Almost painless

Due to the extremely short duration of the laser pulse, the surrounding skin tissue does not react and remains uninjured and free from scars.

#5 HOW DOES THE TATTOO REMOVAL WORK?


When you get a tattoo, small colour pigments are inserted into your skin with very thin tattoo needles. Since the upper skin layer, epidermis, is very fine and constantly renews itself, the colour has to be inserted into the second skin layer, dermis. But only bigger, hardly soluble colour particles can be permanently stored in the tissue. Smaller ones are absorbed by phagocytes, so called macrophages, and transported to the lymph system. To remove a tattoo, the coloured main areas are treated with a laser beam. The big particles heat up to several 100°C for a billionth of a second and burst into many tiny pieces, which then can be transported through the lymph system. Since the laser can only remove a tattoo selectively, there are eight to twelve treatments necessary, depending on the size.

#6 PRECAUTION & AFTERCARE

If you used drugs or had an excessive alcohol consumption within the last 24 hours, we kindly ask you to postpone your treatment.

We also do not treat tanned skin, suntanned as well as solarium. Please pay attention to maintain your skin as light as possible in your tattoo area.

If you are sick or suffer any skin condition, we kindly ask you to postpone your appointment. Do not take on too much and tackle each treatment healthy and positively.

After your treatment your immune system will enjoy a walk and fresh air, as well as sufficient hydration. Some fresh pineapple with its enzymes will support the healing process.

The most important thing is the removal of the colour particles from your body. We recommend the product line Shejoba. Hand-made and beneficial infusion, balm and oil.

We advise to not use soap in the treated area for one or two days. Sauna and swimming should also be paused for one week, because the skin areal is very sensitive.

Avoid sport and especially muscle contraction in the first week. Scab needs to heal on its own - do not scratch or manipulate.

#8 RISKS AND SIDE EFFECTS


The treatment with laser includes risks. Tattoolos generally explains all possible effects that can occur before the start of a removal treatment.

Even with proper application and recommended after care, scars can - very seldomly - occur. About 10% of clients get hypopigmentation and the skin in the lasered area gets lighter. To reduce this risk, you need to carefully watch out for sufficient sun protection. Usually the paleness fades within six to eight weeks. Hyperpigmentation, meaning the lasered area darkens, luckily occurs even less (less than one percent). The so-called colour change, also ink darkening, that can happen with tattoo removal by laser is caused by the release of iron oxide and titanium dioxide. These skin changes occur rather often when removing permanent make-up. Allergic reactions can be the result of toxic and carcinogenic degradation products of azo dye - often the colour red. Because of this, tattoolos always conducts a trial treatment. It is widely unknown which degradation products result from the tattoo removal by laser. The German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment is working towards a safer declaration of ingredients in tattoo colours and supports the research on degradation products.

Due to the extreme heat and the short intense energy supply the lasered area turns white directly after treatment. These vapour bubbles vanish after about ten minutes. Especially when removing colourful tattoos blisters may occur. They contain wound fluid that is protecting the lasered area and should not be removed mechanically. After a couple of days they heal on their own. Due to the mechanical, explosion-like burst of the colour particles, slight blood oozing may occur. Sometimes the treated area looks like a bruise or hematoma. A couple of days after the laser treatment scab may form, because of the decomposition of the defect and damaged tissue cells. To avoid scarring, they should not be removed.
