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.
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
The part is rubbed with a carbon pad impregnated with 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.
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.
The area is bandaged: The bandage is left for the desired length of time; 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.
