THE REJUVI TATTOO REMOVAL TECHNIQUE REMOVES TATTOOS BY USING A FORMULA THAT ATTRACTS PIGMENT AND BRINGS IT OUT TO THE SURFACE OF THE SKIN. IT IS A LESS EXPENSIVE AND LESS PAINFUL OPTION TO LASER REMOVAL.
At Tropicalaser, we use the Rejuvi Removal Technique to effectively and safely remove tattoos. It is non-color selective, which means that it will safely remove all traditional color pigments.
The cost of removing a tattoo is dependent on size – we price the sessions based on square inches. Body tattoos usually take between 3-6 treatments to see best results.
Each client is unique! Prices and number of sessions vary from person to person. Call or drop by for our best price.
Does It Hurt?
The treatment is very similar to being tattooed, so if you were able to get through the tattoo, this won’t be a problem! To further minimize any discomfort, a topical anaesthetic may be applied to help numb the skin prior to treatment.
Is This Treatment Right For Me?
While the treatment is suitable for most people, a thorough consultation is carried out prior to any treatment. Treatment should not be carried out during pregnancy or breastfeeding. Darker skin types are more prone to keloid scarring and this process is not recommended for those whose skin type is 5-6 on the Fitzpatrick skin type test. This, along with any other possible concerns, can be discussed during the consultation process.
How Long Does A Treatment Take?
It generally takes approximately 45 - 60 minutes to cover a 2x2 inch square. Larger tattoos will be broken down into sections for each treatment. Keep in mind, body tattoos usually will take between 3-6 sessions.
Will It Leave A Scar?
There is currently no method or product that can remove a permanent body tattoo without some risk that scarring will occur; however, the Rejuvi method 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. If you did not suffer any complications when the tattoo was originally applied, and the area is cared for properly then the risk of scarring should be minimal. If the original tattoo was applied poorly (the tattoo is scarred, raised or blurry), or other removal methods have been attempted, scarring is more likely. There are certain areas and skin types that typically have a lower tolerance to skin trauma, in these areas healing and scar tissue formation are more of a concern. Be sure to chat with your technician for more information.
How Soon Will I See Results?
The crust that forms after treatment should primarily take on the colors of the underlying tattoo. As the crust falls away, it will take the tattoo ink with it. It is not uncommon to see parts of your tattoo completely gone after the first treatment! Depending on the size and location of your tattoo, the number of treatments required will vary. Chat with your technician for more information.
Will This Treatment Work If I've Already Had Laser Treatment?
The short answer is yes; however, laser treatment can cause chemical changes in the pigments which can lead to a greater chance of scarring. More personalized answers based on your tattoo can be provided during your consultation.
Are There Any Lasting Side Effects?
There have been no lasting side effects documented arising from the removal treatment. Soreness and redness of the area are common and can be expected to last for about a week.
How Frequently Can I Have The Treatment?
It will take between 2-3 weeks for the initial crusting to fall away. After 8-12 weeks, the area will be healed enough for further treatments. Want to wait longer? That's fine! You can take longer breaks between treatments without affecting the outcome.
