TATTOO REMOVAL

Rejuvi is one of the only true tattoo removal alternatives to laser, with the added benefits that Rejuvi removes all colours, needs less treatments than laser and is less painful.

PRICING

Prices Start at $200 for the first appointment which includes the consultation and then price will be dictated by the size, amount of pigment to be removed and time.

PROCESS

Patients should be allowing 8-12 weeks for the skin to heal prior to any subsequent treatments.  If a new tattoo is to be reapplied, then allow 6 months following final treatment.  A single initial treatment is exampled in the image below from a Rejuvi Clinic in the UK.

After the treatment the skin can have some redness which will gradually subside over time.  It is important to stringently maintain your aftercare treatment to reduce the risk of any scarring whilst reducing the redness more quickly.

QUESTIONS

DOES IT HURT?

The treatment is very similar to being tattooed. Most clinics can apply topical aesthetic to numb the skin prior to treatment. Please enquire about this at your chosen clinic.

HOW LONG DOES A TREATMENT TAKE?

A treatment takes around 45 to 60 minutes to cover a 2×2 inch square area.

WHAT IS IN THE REMOVAL CREAM?

The removal cream has been specifically developed for the purpose of removing tattoos by bonding with the tattoo ink and causing its expulsion from the body.  Many of the ingredients can be found in food and cosmetic products.  The ingredients in order of quantity are as follows Water, zinc oxide, magnesium oxide, calcium oxide, n-propanol and TEA benzoic acid.  Only a very small amount of cream is required per treatment; typically, less than 3-4ml, most of which does not penetrate the skin.  Exposure is minimal and chemical concentrations in the cream present little or no risk.  The treatment has been approved by various health and safety officers around the UK.

IF YOU TATTOO THE REMOVAL CREAM IN, DOES THIS MEAN IT GETS LEFT IN THE BODY RATHER THAN THE TATTOO?

No, the removal cream is designed to bond to and absorb the tattoo ink and extract the ink to the skin surface.  It does not replace the tattoo and it does not remain in the skin.  It is not a skin coloured cover-up tattoo.

HOW WILL I KNOW IF THIS TREATMENT IS SUITABLE FOR ME?

The treatment is suitable for most people.  A full consultation is carried out prior to any treatment.  Generally, if you have tolerated the original tattoo process then this treatment is very similar.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL IT TAKE TO REMOVE MY TATTOO?

On average most tattoos can be removed in three to four treatments depending on size and location.  Very old tattoos may take extra treatment. We do not normally recommend treating a complete arm or leg band tattoo in one sitting but usually treat it in sections.  We normally recommend that a maximum single area of two square inches is treated to minimise discomfort after treatment.  If you require a larger area to be treated, then please discuss this with your technician.

HOW FREQUENTLY CAN I HAVE THE TREATMENT?

It will generally take about two weeks from the initial treatment for most of the crusting to fall away.  Normally after around six to eight weeks the area is completely healed and can be re-treated.

HOW SOON WILL I SEE THE RESULTS?

The most amazing thing about this treatment is that you will actually get to see the results in just a few days. After the treatment, a sterile dressing is applied which must be kept on and kept dry for 48 hours.  After removing the dressing, a good crust will form over the treated skin.  As the crust falls away it will take the unwanted tattoo ink with it. It is likely that parts of the tattoo will be almost completely erased on just the first treatment.  Your tattoo can be completely removed in just a matter of months, compared to years that it takes with laser.

CAN I HAVE THIS TREATMENT IF I’VE HAD LASER TREATMENT?

It is possible to treat tattoos that have previously undergone laser treatment, however the results can be less successful due to sub-dermal scar tissue left behind by the laser process.  Please call us to discuss.  It is perfectly safe to have laser treatment on your tattoo after it has been treated with the Rejuvi tattoo removal system if necessary.
