Tattoos are easier to apply than to remove. Over the years there have been many different attempts at tattoo removal. Some have included excision, dermabraision, salt abraision and laser.
Beverly Hills Dermatology Consultants uses a contemporary removal method to remove tattoos quickly, easily and permanently.
Our extraction technique utilizes several inorganic oxides which have an affinity for the tattoo pigments. The pigments bind with the formula and form a scab which separates from the skin, removing the tattoo with it.
This mehtod will remove ALL color inks whether homemade or professional from eyebrows, lips or the body.
What are the advantages of this technique compared to a laser:
– Simple, Safe & Easy to do
– Fewer treatments
– Less expensive with less pain
When will I see results?
It may take 2-3 treatments to see full results, depending on the type of ink used and the depth of the tattoo, but this chemical method generally takes fewer treatments than with a laser.
Are the treatments painful?
The pain is similar to when the tattoo was applied. An anesthetic cream is first applied to numb the skin.
When can I have subsequent treatments?
Every 2-3 months.
What precautions do I need to take?
DO NOT PICK AT THE SCAB as this will result in a scar. Keep the treated area DRY.
What are the potential risks?
As with any skin procedure, there is the risk of scarring or a pigment change with the treated area lightening or darkening depending on your skin’s response.
What is the cost?
The cost is determined by the size and complexity of the tattoo. However fewer treatments are required compared to with laser.
