What is the tattoo removal treatment process?
Tattoo Removal using the skin's natural rejection response.

With our tattoo removal we make use of the natural rejection response of the skin and its healing process to remove the tattoo ink completely from the body. Using a micro pigmentation device we roughen small sections of the epidermis in the form of small circles. Allowing skin bridges between the circles reduces the risk of scarring compared to treating larger areas.

The patented removal liquid SKINIAL-EX, based on (lactic) milk acid, is applied to the treated area. It slowly penetrates through the tattoo ink. It then reacts with the macrophages which have encapsulated the color molecules up until now. These cells then lose their strength and release the tattoo pigment. The macrophages that have surrounded and protected the tattoo ink are now recognized by the body’s defence system as a foreign substance and rejects them directly to the surface of the skin where a scab will form. This scab dries after a few days and the treated area heals completely within a few weeks. Read more about lactic acid in treatments.

After 8 to 10 weeks the tattoo removal treatment can be continued at adjacent areas until the entire tattoo is removed. After the healing process these treated areas assume the original skin color and if desired can be tattooed again.

What advantages does the Skinial tattoo removal treatment offer?

Removes All the Colours

All colours and colour combinations can be removed with our tattoo removal without laser process. This includes not only tattoo ink, but also special mixtures. In nearly all cases we can remove the colour from the treated area with the first treatment.

Lower Number of Treatments

In comparison to the laser method, the number of treatments with Skinial is substantially lower. For small tattoos (up to 16 sq cm), depending on the form, it usually only requires 3 to 4 tattoo removal treatments. Therefore our tattoo removal is clearly cheaper than tattoo removal method with laser.

No Residue in the Body

The tattoo ink leaves the body through the surface of the skin and the removal liquid will be completely degraded by the body’s natural metabolism within hours. No pollutants remain in the body!

Less Pain

Tattoo removal with Skinial is generally less painful than the original tattooing.

What results can be expected?

A tattoo is not a graffiti

Clients’ expectations of tattoo removal are often very high. They think tattoos can be removed in every size and location so that the skin looks the same as before the tattooing. This expectation cannot be guaranteed by any removal method. A scar-free tattoo removal cannot be guaranteed. It depends far more on the individual’s skin characteristics and the genetic condition of the client, than the removal method used.

The skin is a living organ, unlike a wall with graffiti which can easily be removed. Therefore, everybody reacts differently. A good result is if you can no longer see any of the tattoo at a distance of one meter. In our detailed consultation before the beginning of the treatment, we discuss your expectations and the feasible result.

In the majority of tattoos that we have removed, you could not recognize the former tattoo with the naked eye. You can expect results with a small tattoo after 2 to 3 treatments and for the skin to return to normal at the earliest after 9 to 12 months. This is due to the healing process between each treatment which takes 8 to 10 weeks. The skin will often need even more time for the last of the redness to disappear. A larger tattoo clearly needs a longer period for the removal. The larger the tattoo, the greater the risk of scarring.

Why you shouldn’t remove your tattoo with laser?

Tattoo removal with laser was for a long time the only method available to remove tattoos without surgery (excision). In addition, there was the opportunity to remove tattoos with dermabrasion, literally sanding the skin away. Only recently has there been an alternative to removing tattoos without laser.

When tattoos are removed by laser, the laser will heat the treated area up to 800 degrees Celsius. The high energy should break down the colour molecules of the tattoo. The tremendous energy discharged is focused within the skin, the technician/doctor in charge estimating how deep the tattoo ink is. Thereby emerge the following problems:

One laser is not sufficient

The technician in charge has to estimate the exact depth of the tattoo ink. Moreover color molecules only split if the laser has the right frequency. That is why it is not possible to remove multicolored tattoos with laser. A laser studio is forced to work with up to six different lasers. Traces of color always remain in the skin.

Laser develops toxic and carcinogenic substances

Nobody knows the composition of the colours of the tattoo. However, according to several studies, for example Dr. rer. Nat. Eva Engel, the splitting of the colour molecules develops new chemical compounds which are toxic and cancer-causing. The colour particles are crushed and partially pushed deeper into the skin, where they settle into the conjunctiva and the layer of fat. This is also the reason why there so often remain shadows after laser treatments, and the tattoo cannot be completely removed even after 15 to 20 treatments! Read here our report about the difficulties of this method.

Colour molecules remain distributed in the body

Part of the crushed ink particles are sent through the blood and lymphatic system. In fact, studies found degradation particles and tattoo ink in the lymph, spleen and liver. How these substances will leave the body has not yet been clarified. Probably they will never leave the body. The colour molecules, which are between the cells in the skin, are usually too large to penetrate the vein walls or the lymphatic walls. Therefore, a large amount of the tattoo ink remains in the conjunctive tissue and the layer of fat. Read here the article on New Zealandn Policy Online about nano-particles in tattoo ink and the dangerous laser treatment.

Painful treatment

Due to extreme discomfort, many test patients who wanted to remove their tattoo with laser had to stop the treatment despite intensive cooling and pain medication.

Old lasers are often too strong

Not just any laser is suitable for tattoo removal. Many older lasers are still being used which are intended for other skin treatments, but they are too strong for tattoo removal. This can quickly lead to burns and extensive subcutaneous (under the skin) scarring.

Scarring under the skin

With every tattoo removal method there exists the risk of being left with scarring. Laser treatments can lead to hypertrophic scars or burn scars. They also lead to scarring under the surface of the skin (epidermis), non-uniform skin colour, or bumps which you can feel under the skin. The smallest external injury after laser treatments can lead to a scar because the dermis (subcutaneous) is already damaged by many treatments of tattoo removal and has been strongly affected.

What are the risks?

The tattoo ink is not completely out

It is rare that the tattoo ink remains visible. However, there are good reasons why the natural rejection may only partially work and the ink remains in the skin. In most cases, the amount of ink in the tattoo was so large that only part could be rejected to the surface of the skin. It is also possible that the tattoo was tattooed so deeply into the skin that it is not possible for the liquid to reach it. If the tattoo was tattooed by a professional tattooist, this is rarely the case. Also the influence of medications, drugs and local anesthetic can lead to a reduced rejection of the ink.

A special situation is a tattoo pre-treated with laser. Depending on the condition of the subcutaneous tissue, the skin could have lost the natural rejection function by use of the laser. When and if this is the case, it is difficult to ascertain. Some people have after only a few laser treatments a completely scarred subcutaneous tissue, and others have good working rejection ability even after ten laser treatments. To determine this, it is recommended to wait for the result of a patch test of a single dot/circle.

Scar formation

According to a medical study, 5% of the population tend to have hypertrophic scars, younger rather than older, and women rather than men. Basically, every tattoo is a permanent skin injury which can lead to pigment disturbances and microscopic scars. In 20% of tattoos, it is possible to see scarring before the removal process.

The objective of optimal tattoo removal without laser is to achieve as close as possible the visual impression of normal skin. Depending on skin type, location of the tattoo, age of the client, and his or her general health situation (smoker, on medications, frequent consumption of alcohol etc.), the healing phase can be longer (up to one year) to achieve the desired end result. In comparison to the laser method, the Skinial method has a much lower risk of scar formation and skin pigment disorder. More about this on our expert knowledge section.
