In particular, the video shows you: The Before and After Pictures Comparison, The Before Pictures taken just before the treatment, Pictures taken during the Treatment, Pictures Taken Immediately After the Treatment, The healing progression summary and The entire procedure.
The subject was 30 years old at the time of the treatment and had never undergone any form of tattoo removal or tattoo fading procedure. A cream based numbing product was used on and around the areas of the tattoo to enable smooth removal process. The intensity of the treatment was medium - high and the power levels used was set from power level 17 - 32 using the beautyteck device. A spray mode operation was used for this particular treatment.
First the epidermal layer is removed to access the tattoo pigments, this is done by spraying the tattoo superficially. The spray operation is the preferred method to apply voltaic plasma for tattoo removal. In any case, it is good practice to patch test the tattoo on a small area before carrying out a full tattoo fading procedure. A patch testing is important not only for appraisal of the skin reaction to the treatment but also to estimate the number of session required to achieve the desired results, for this case study no patch testing was required as this treatment was done by a professional and managing director of Areton LTD, Andreas Russo.
It is up to the tattoo removal practitioner to decide the depth of the ablation and therefore the voltaic arcing treatment intensity. The overall treatment intensity is determined by the voltaic arcing treatment intensity, the type of osmotic treatment and the length of the osmotic application. For this case study the treatment was a high intensity treatment, power levels ranging from 17 - 32 was used using the beautyteck device. This subject had never undergone any form of tattoo removal or fading procedure, Tattoos previously treated with lasers are much harder to fade than those never treated, because some tattoo removal practitioners prefer not to treat tattoos which had previously undergone laser treatments.
The part was rubbed with a soft piece of cotton wool dipped in non-flammable antiseptic to remove the carbon residues, Once the epidermal layer is removed the spraying process is repeated in order to break down the tattoo pigments. Every time too much carbon is formed due to the treatment, The area is rubbed again with the cotton pad to remove the carbon residues. It is also important to spray over the borders of the tattoo.
Sterile fine salt is applied on the tattoo to induce osmosis. The length of the salt application also contributes to the overall intensity of the treatment, In this case the salt was applied and left for 1 hour to induce osmosis and then later washed of completely.
The bandage was left for a duration of 1 hour, Which is normally established by the tattoo removal practitioner, according to the desired treatment intensity. The longer the sterile fine salt is left on the treated area the stronger the osmotic intensity.
The Healing was painful for the first two weeks, but no infection, it was pain free after the scabs fell off completely. The Scabs started to fall of on 6 days after the treatment and fell off completely 16 days after the treatment. The healing progression was normal and happens in most cases with the proper aftercare. This subject had the proper aftercare, waited for the scabs to fall on their own. The pain withing the first two weeks perfectly normal for most tattoo fading case studies, The most important thing was that the treated area was not infected which enable the scabs formed to fall off quicker.
Salt was applied to the area directly after treatment, The subject used saline application daily after treatment for a week, and olive oil wax after two weeks. She also used Formulage an anesthetics aftercare product that prevents the risk of infections and bacteria.
