Finally there is a technique that can safely and successfully remove unwanted tattoos or poorly done permanent makeup i.e. eyebrows and lips.

TATTOO REMOOV TM is an FDA approved product. It is registered and accredited at legal and regulatory bodies for safety and quality. (Certificates can be supplied on request).

TATTOO REMOOV TM has a default PH skin value. The skin’s natural PH remains unchanged. There is no fibroblast destruction of the skin; which means no destruction of the connective tissue and no disturbance of collagen. The technique does not involve thermal waves as when using a laser technique. This ensures painless treatments and the results are guaranteed when taking multiple sessions and following the necessary aftercare.

The process used is similar to PMU (permanent makeup treatment). However, the needles do not penetrate the skin but surfs on top of it. TATTOO REMOOV has a beige/white colour and placed on the area needs to be treated by means of the Dermo Power Pen and a Needle 88.

The TATTOO REMOOV liquid will gradually changes colour. A greenish or other underlined colour of previous ink/pigments will move to the surface of the skin. This happens because the TATTOO REMOOV liquid is mixing with the pigment or ink and iron oxide contained in the pigment or ink that was previously used.

A few hours after the treatment a wound fluid (natural plasma) forms a very thin layer on the treated area. This will heal on its own – approximately 5 to 14 days. Initially the ink or pigment will appear darker. This is a good sign because the pigment is surfacing to the top. We want the pigment out, not pushed back into your skin. This causes the ink/pigment to break up into smaller molecules which gets released into your bloodstream and can be harmful to your health.

PLEASE NOTE: You should under no circumstances remove the scabs that form as this can have serious consequences and lead to scarring.

Keloids cannot be caused by TATTOO REMOOV and Needle 88. During the first consultation, I will establish if any keloids were formed on your skin. It should then first be treated by a medical doctor and a medical certificate should be provided stating that the procedure can be done on your skin.

Due to wound fluids, minimal swelling might occur. Inflammation in the treated area can also occur if the area is not cleaned properly. A product will be provided to properly clean the treated area. Be gentle with your skin. Do not cause any friction, do not rub or use any harsh action. It can cause serious damage to your skin. At the final stages of your skin healing, the skin may appear red or pink. This is not due to scarring. It is an indication that the skin is still not fully healed.

A repair gel for tattoo removal treatments should be used on a daily basis. With body tattoo removal, it is advisable to use a topical ointment. It is safe to shower the next day after treatment but take care of the treated area. Do not use any products that contains chemicals, salt solutions or coloured shower gels. If for some unforeseen reason the scab came loose, remove the scab and follow up with scar repair cream on eyebrows, lips or body.

How many sessions is needed for a tattoo to be removed?

The number of sessions depends entirely on the quality and quantity of the pigment or ink previously used, the depth of the tattoo, the age of the tattoo as well as the thickness thereof. It also depends on your specific skin type. Removing your tattoo might take a few sessions. You need to be patient. Keep in mind that the technique used combined with the product in the correct way will ultimately guarantee a favourable result. With TATTOO REMOOV a specific number of treatments cannot be established beforehand as every tattoo is different.

How long should I wait before the next treatment can be done?

Most body tattoo’s take approximately 28 days to heal. It is important to remember that some skin will take longer to heal and is therefore advisable to wait between 4 to 6 weeks. When removing permanent makeup, a period of 10 days might suffice.
