Dermapen Treatments for tattoo removal can only be performed by a professional in a clinic setting. After light abrasion of the skin, a safe activator proprietary fluid is infused into the tattoo pigment using a special needle fitted to the Dermapen 4™ device. The fluid breaks down the ink pigment and a scab forms over the treated area. When the scab falls away, the pigment comes with it, leaving clear, pink skin to heal.
Dermapen Treatments for tattoo removal require fewer sessions and are far less painful than laser treatments.
The number of required procedures is decided during your initial consultation. A variety of factors, including skin type, the age of the tattoo, your age, the amount of pigment, the location of the tattoo, and other attempts at removal will be considered. Generally, a tattoo that’s a little bit bigger than the palm of your hand (12.5cm x 12.5cm) requires between 4-5 treatments.
An 8 week period is necessary between procedures to allow the skin time to heal. For example, a tattoo requiring 4 procedures will take a minimum of 32 weeks to remove. Once the scab has fallen off, daily use of Dp Dermaceuticals SSSCAR™ is recommended for optimal results.
