Tatt2Away® uses an innovative technique for removing tattoo pigment that works in conjunction with the body’s natural healing process. A proprietary solution is introduced into the tattoo that binds with the tattoo pigment and then is incorporated into a scab, that when it drops off, reveals the eliminated pigment underneath. This proprietary process is called Trans Epidermal Pigment Release® “TEPR®”, and is a new way for tattoo removal. TEPRSOL®, the patented solution that is utilized, brings out the pigment which is found under the scab when it falls off showing that the ink has been expelled from the body.
During your initial consult your Tatt2Away certified technician will sketch out a map and timeline specifically to alter, cover-up, or completely remove your art, regardless of size and existing colors. Based on your vision for your ink-evolution your technician will design a plan of treatments for removal and, if you desire, your new ink. In planning for a removal, time requirements are a common concern. Treatment sessions range from 20-40 minutes each sitting with a 8-12 week period in between sessions for 3 to 4 sessions.
Using a template stencil pattern to mark the skin, the TEPR® (Trans Epidermal Pigment Release®) technique and the TEPRSOL® solution is what makes us unique and the leader in the market. Use of the template minimizes scarring and the proprietary solution works to remove all of the colors of ink pigment from the skin. Both are patented by Rejuvatek Medical expressly for Tatt2Away®.
Your certified technician performs the removal with equipment, similar to a tattoo machine, applying the solution in 5 mm patches following the template pattern. This begins the process of binding and breaking down the ink pigments of your tattoo.
As the area heals, the solution pulls the ink from the skin in the form of a scab. When the scab falls away, the ink goes with it. Your Tatt2Away technician will plan to treat small sections to control and maintain a healthy healing process. Each area will be treated in a different session until the required removal is complete.
Because the procedure is similar to that of a tattoo being applied the level of discomfort during removal is much like how you felt when getting your tattoo. Many patients claim the removal process was less uncomfortable than when they were originally inked.
The TEPR® relies on your body’s natural healing to reject the ink from the treated area in the form of a scab. When the scab falls off it actually removes the ink from your body.
Between treatments, you will be advised to keep the area clean and out of the sun and to follow all aftercare instructions given by your technician to achieve the best result possible.
