Tattoo Removal Techniques
- Tattoo Surgical Excision: The “surgical tattoo removal” can guarantee the complete removal of the unwanted tattoos within one session.
- Tattoo Fading using Osmosis: (Osmosis) can remove both old and new tattoos regardless of pigments used. This method is also effective on amateur, professional grade tattoos and permanent make-up, however it cannot fade very deep pigments close to the hypo-dermis.
- Tattoo Fading using Micro-Dermabrasion: This is a technique which relies on skin resurfacing. It is often used in conjunction with salabrasion(or osmosis) with improved degree of tattoo fading after each treatment.
- Tattoo Fading using Chemical Peels: This is a technique which relies on skin resurfacing. The main problem, is that although the cosmetic peels can remove skin layers as deep as required, the pigments do not fade like the mainstream tattoo fading techniques (Plasma and osmosis, Osmosis on its own, Laser).
- Tattoo Fading using IPL (Intense Pulsed Light): Intense Pulsed Light devices are mostly used for permanent epilation and they are very rarely used for tattoo fading.
- Tattoo Fading using Cryotherapy: Cryotherapy uses very cold temperatures to remove unwanted tissue. Like IPL, this is very rarely used for tattoo fading and it is not a mainstream treatment.
- Tattoo Removal by Replacement: Once the tattoo has faded to a certain extent, in case the further fading treatments do not achieve the satisfactory tattoo fading, than alternative treatments may be more suitable. One option may be cover up.
- Discomfort and pain during treatment.
- Frosting (laser treatments).
- Minor bleeding.
- Immediate redness and swelling.
- Swelling and infections.
