Tattoo removal without laser

Tattoos are very popular all over the world. Many people have tattoo’s for many different reasons, including expression ones emotion or loyalty to influencial or important subjects or symbols at a given point in time. However over time peoples lives change, sometimes tattoo’s can be awkward or uncomfortable for some to live with. In these cases people may wish they can remove these tattoos.

Well using e-raze, we can help you remove your tattoo without the use of laser. This treatment naturally draws the pigment out of the skin in a vary simlilar way to the way the original tattoo was applied. The e-raze tattoo removal system is equally effective on all tattoo colours and is  effective on both professionally applied and most home made tattoos.















How long will it take to remove the tattoo?
This really depends upon the skin type, tattoo size, ink and application of the tattoo. Body tattoos can take just a few treatments in some cases and permenant makeup can sometimes be removed in 1 or more treatments. We advise having a consultation to take a better look at the tattoo and from there on guide you through the removal process.

Does it hurt ?
The treatment uses a similar technique to the original tattoo application. Therefore the sensation is very similar in feeling to this.

Does it work ?
Due to the unique nature of every tattoo, removal cannot be guaranteed, however the success rate of body tattoo removal  is around 92% while for permanent cosmetics is 100%. Based on data from  cosmetic dermatology trial 2001, (removal defined as no appreciable  colour remaining after 1 treatment). New treatment methods now use  multiple treatments over a greater timeframe for better results and  lower risk. The eventual success can be effected by the condition and  circumstances of the original tattoo.

How long does a treatment take ?
A treatment takes around 45 to 60 minutes to cover a 2×2 inch square area 5x5cm2.

Will it remove a home made tattoo ?
Usually the ink in home made tattoos is less resilient than that used in professionally applied tattoos and can be removed very easily, however unlike professional tattoos ink depth can be very random which may make additional treatments necessary. It would be advisable to meet with our trained technicians for a consulation to get a better understanding of the tattoo in question.

Will it leave a scar ?
There is no method, product or technology in  existence that can remove a permanent body tattoo without some risk that  scarring will occur. As with any process that breaks the skin there can  be a risk of scarring. The removal process is well tolerated by the  skin and the scarring rate in a published series of 98 patients (Cosmetic Dermatology  April, 2001) was 0% for permanent makeup and 6% for body tattoos  compared to laser with a 5% chance that a permanent scar will  form**. New treatment methods are more conservative so the risk of  scarring is reduced. Usually if you did not suffer any complications  when the tattoo was originally applied, do not suffer from hypertrophy or keloid scarring and the treated area is cared for properly then the risk of scarring  should be minimal. If the original tattoo has been applied poorly,  (tattoo is scarred or raised or has become very blurred) or other  methods of removal have been  attempted removal can be more liable to  scarring.  There are certain areas, skin types and circumstances which  typically have low tolerance to skin trauma and healing and scar tissue  formation are more of a concern. There are also a number of preventative  measures that can be used to further reduce risks in these  circumstances. Please see our dedicated section on this for more  information or discuss this with your technician.

I just got a tattoo and I already dislike it, what can I do ?
The remover can be applied mid tattoo for immediate  reversal, if you are in the middle of getting artwork applied which is  not what you specified or imagined then stop and discuss this with the  artist. Once the skin has resealed, then unfortunately the skin must be  allowed to recover from the process which takes around eight to twelve  weeks. Treatment to early may cause unnecessarily high trauma to the  skin which can lead to scarring.

**  Quoted figures are based on trials of a series of 98 patients published  in Cosmetic Dermatology April, 2001. It should be noted that the treatment method used in these trials was different than that currently employed by e-raze for the majority of treatments.
