The Tatt2Away® Tattoo Removal System (US Patent 8,663,162) works using a similar technique to how a tattoo is applied.
The skin is lightly abraded in a patented pattern to reduce scarring.
A patented solution developed by Rejuvetek Medical called TEPRSOL® is introduced instead of ink.
TEPRSOL® produces an escharotic response in the skin that relies on the body’s natural healing response to reject the ink from the body in the form of a scab, actually removing the ink from the body.
Tatt2Away® treatments are designed to remove the tattoo in a series of visits for maximum results. The number of treatments depends on the size, complexity, and location of the design. An average size tattoo, 4″ x 6″, may need four or five visits but is realistically determined during the initial consultation.
Discomfort from the procedure is comparable to that of a tattoo being applied. Treatment sessions last about 45 minutes and time between treatment sessions is usually about 6 – 12 weeks.
