  • Less Treatments – Most tattoos can be removed in around three to four treatments
  • Lower Cost – Less treatments makes removal more economical than other methods
  • Fastest non-surgical method – Less treatments also means faster removal
  • Not Colour selective – All tattoo colours respond equally Red – Green – Blue – Yellow etc.
  • Less Scarring* – The skin is still able to tan normally and hair growth remains unchanged
  • Can be used to lighten tattoos for better coverups

The DERMATESE tattoo removal system is a unique method of tattoo ink extraction which is designed to completely remove tattoo ink pigments from the body. The treatment has been extensively researched, developed and tested for over ten years and in use worldwide for over eight years. 

The treatment utilizes similar methods as having the original tattoo. The removal formula is delivered to the ink using a tattoo or permanent make-up machine, therefore the treatment can only be performed by a trained tattoo or permanent make-up artist or medical professional. The extraction cream is specifically designed to blend with and capture the original tattoo ink. 

The formula then forms into a thicker substance which the skin easily pushes out taking the captured tattoo ink with it. A number of treatments are normally required to completely remove a tattoo. After the treatment course is finished, the skin should return to its natural state over a period of months. There are numerous benefits to this method of removal compared to other methods.

The DERMATESE treatment is substantially less painful than other removal methods and the treatment course and subsequent tattoo removal is typically much faster and more effective than laser removal options, including effective removal of all tattoo colours.

The DERMATESE system is suitable and effective on both professional, homemade tattoos and permanent make-up as well as on most areas of the body apart from sensitive areas near the eyes or areas where high levels of moisture occur (where special aftercare considerations may be required). The treatment is not colour selective (unlike laser) and acts on all colour pigments equally.


How does it work?

The tattoo remover is applied in a similar manner to having a tattoo or micropigmentation applied using the same equipment.The tattoo extraction formula gets to work almost immediately drawing the original tattoo ink upwards through the skin. A crust containing the tattoo ink will form over the treated area over the next couple of weeks as the skin heals, it will push more of the unwanted ink out. The crust will start to naturally fall away taking that unwanted tattoo ink with it. The treated area should be kept dry after treatment and while the crust is on the skin. Some of the remaining ink can also move into the epidermis (layer of skin that is naturally being constantly shed) therefore, the area may lighten further over the following weeks. The DERMATESE system is so effective, it is feasible, although unlikely, that a tattoo can be removed in a single treatment. Normally, a tattoo will take a number of treatments: typically around 3-4 depending on condition, history and your individual circumstances.

The treated are should be allowed to heal for 8-12 weeks following treatment before subsequent treatments. If colour is to be reapplied allow 6 months following final treatment.After treatment the skin will have some redness which will gradually subside. It is important to note that with any method or technology used to effect tattoo removal there are risks involved which may include permanent scarring. There are a number steps that can be utilised to reduce these risks and there are treatments available to reduce scarring should it occur. Unfortunately tattoos are not as easy to remove as they are to apply.
