Permanent Makeup and Tattoo Removal (non laser)

Permanent make-up, also known as micropigmentation, is a cosmetic procedure to create long-lasting eyeliner, lipliner or eyebrow definition

Having your face “tattooed” can be a very daunting prospect even for the brave. Some of the questions I know you’ve asked or should have asked yourself are: How can I ensure it will look natural, be the right shape, color, thickness, how long will it last, what happens if it goes wrong and most importantly how do I ensure it doesn’t?

We have the expertise and will answer all your questions and advice what is the best for you.

Safety:  We are qualified and well trained and work in a clean, safe and appropriate environment, with the processes in place to deal with any complications.

 

What it involves

Consultation

You will have a thorough consultation beforehand to discuss what type of look you would like to achieve and to agree the color, position and shape of the desired effect. Take time to reflect on your decision.

On the day

After we welcome you in our medical spa we will request you to fill out a questionnaire to make sure that you don’t have allergies that could cause problems. After we discussed the questionnaire we make you ready for the treatment. First an anaesthetic cream would be applied to the skin to numb it. The skin would then be sketched with a surgical pen. A sterile single-use needle would be inserted underneath the upper layers of skin to deposit pigmented granules. Each time the needle is inserted, a droplet of pigment is released into the tiny hole created. You may feel a slight stinging.

The procedure takes about two hours.

You’ll usually need two applications spaced four to six weeks apart, and “maintenance” or “top-up” treatments after one to three years.

Afterwards

We will apply a barrier cream. You’ll be advised to apply this twice daily if you feel the area drying out and repeat this for up to at least 7 days, or until the area has fully healed. The area may feel itchy or be quite dry while it is healing. Initially, the color may appear very intense. It takes about four weeks for the color to fade to its permanent shade.

The surrounding area may be red and a little swollen immediately after treatment and (depending on the procedure) for a few days afterwards. There may be a few spots of blood on the first day.

You’ll need to avoid direct jets from the shower or soaking in the bath for too long, as this may remove the pigment or increase the risk of infection. You’ll also need to steer clear of chlorinated water (such as swimming pools) and exposure to sunlight until it has fully healed.

It can take about two weeks to fully heal, after which time you’d be able to carry out your usual routine and use beauty products.

 

 

EliminInk Tattoo Removal (non laser)

EliminInk is implanted into tissue the same way tattoo inks and permanent makeup pigments are implanted in tissue using a tattoo or permanent make-up machine.  The treatment can only be performed by an EliminInk Certified Tattoo Artist, Permanent Make-up Artist or Physician. We are certified and well skilled.

EliminInk can be utilized on both professional and home-made tattoos as well as permanent make-up on most areas of the body. The only treatment area that must be avoided is tattoos on the eyelid (i.e., eyeliner). The treatment is not color selective (unlike laser) and is effective on all color inks and pigments. The treatment is very similar to being tattooed. We can apply topical anesthetic to numb the skin prior to treatment (if required). A treatment takes around 45 minutes to cover a 2” x 2” tattoo (4 square inch area).

The results

The most extraordinary thing about EliminInk is that you will actually get to see the results in just a few days. After the treatment, a bandage is applied to the treated area. This bandage must be kept on and kept dry for 48 hours during which a scab will form over the treated area. It is likely that parts of the tattoo will be almost completely erased on just the first treatment. Many tattoos require more than one treatment; however, the results are very impressive with EliminInk and a tattoo can be completely removed in just a matter of months, compared with the extended period of time one must dedicate to having a tattoo removed with a laser.

Through a specially-formulated process, EliminInk bonds with ALL permanent makeup pigments and tattoo inks resulting in a tattoo removal procedure that is NON-color dependent unlike that of laser which is color dependent. This, in turn, greatly increases the potential for successful tattoo removal and decreases the overall number of treatment sessions required (as compared to what is frequently required when using the laser technique).

The EliminInk Tattoo Removal System is similar to the original tattoo procedure. The EliminInk solution is applied using a tattoo over procedure. Instead of implanting ink or pigment, EliminInks specially-formulated solution bonds with the original tattoo and then draws the ink to the skin’s surface. In addition, as noted above the EliminInk solution also contains the scar-inhibiting product, DermRenu, which helps to minimize or prevent scarring.
