First the epidermal layer is removed to access the tattoo pigments, in this case the purpose was to spray the tattoo pigment left. 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 20 - 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.
The Healing process was painful for almost a month, The subject left the original Salt that was added on for 4 hours not 2 hours. Only because she wasn't home. This caused a very thick scab to form. She was told to keep it dry and leave scab. The Scab was too thick to come off and she was advised to continue with Salt. It then became infected as bacteria entered through a Crack in the side. A scab must never stay on that long but she didn't know that. She then sent pics to the areton group and was told to treat it with Salt water for the infection.
She later called her doctor instead and the doctor put her on antibiotics and a wound specialist gave her an ointment to use on the scab for 2 days and after the 2 days the healing process started. She dressed it daily for about a month and it took about 6 weeks to close completely
