Tattoo Removal

At Meraki Beauty Bar we offer PhiRemoval service to remove any unwanted permanent make up, body tattoos, and/or emergency removal. We have two removal solution options: One is a Bacillus Ferment (Bacterial Protease Enzyme) base and the second one is a glycolic acid base. Both can be used on PMU and body tattoos. The technician will determine which solution will best suit your removal needs.

In all removal treatments we begin with numbing. Once numbing is complete, we will cover the treatment area with the removal solution. Using the microblading tool or rotary PMU machine, we will deposit the removal solution into your skin. Depending on your skin type, this step will be repeated at a minimum of two times. Processing time is required each time the solution is deposited into your skin.

What is PhiRemoval?
Unlike traditional laser removal, PhiRemoval can remove any colour. The tissue will heal quickly and it does not leave long lasting post treatment effects such as redness or damage to the tissue of your skin.

As this treatment enables the preservation of healthy skin, PhiRemoval solutions will continue to provide skin regeneration and skin renewal post-treatment to gradually accelerate the renewal of skin cells. It slightly improves and smoothes the texture of your skin while reducing the appearance of scars and imperfections. It also regenerates scars and provides improvement in the structure of skin and hair growth in the eyebrow area.

What is emergency Tattoo/PMU removal?
Emergency removal is removal treatment done within 24 hours of PMU or body tattoo. This provides the most effective outcome as pigment is still in the process of saturating into deeper layers of your skin.

How is it different from Laser or Saline removal?
With EnzymePower(Bacillus Ferment) removal solution, it works as an enzymatic peel which helps speed up the skin’s metabolism. It removes dirt and moisturizes the skin making it soft, smooth and gentle. During this stage, it will destroy the pigment therefore, after several sessions, the tattoo will slowly but surely disappear.

With the Light S(Glycolic Acid) removal solution, it works like a chemical peel. When the solution is in contact with the original tattoo ink, it will immediately push the pigment upwards through the skin. As the removal treatment heals, the pigment will continue to lift from under the skin and remove through the scab. After several sessions it will, too, slowly disappear.

Whereas, laser tattoo removal works by blasting the ink filled molecules to smaller pieces so your lymphatic system will drain them, like tiny pieces of waste in your body. Some tattoos will only fade instead of disappearing from laser removal. One main downside to laser tattoo removal is that some people will form blister bubbles during the healing process, leaving the area very tender. This may cause hypopigmentation once it heals.

Saline Removal works by driving the saline (salt & water) into your skin to try and push the pigment from under and cleanse your skin. Over several sessions, it is hoped that the tattoo will fade, but it does not guarantee the disappearance of the ink pigmentation.

What is the down time?
The maximum down time is six weeks . Within this time there are some treatments that are safe to be performed depending on the treatment. Please speak to your removal artist in regards to what treatments are deemed safe during down time.

How long do you have to wait in between sessions?
A minimum of four weeks' time is required in between sessions to allow the skin to heal internally.

How many sessions are required?
Visible changes may occur once your third session has healed. However, you should see minor changes after the first session has healed. Total sessions will vary as it depends on the technique and ink used on your original tattoo. Your skin type also plays a huge role in the removal process.

Is it painful?
Numbing is provided for all removal treatments. Additional numbing during the session is also available. For those who wish to proceed without numbing, it is said by clients that it is less painful than tattoo procedures.

Can I do PhiRemoval if I have had laser tattoo removal previously?
Yes, as long as your laser removal treatment has fully healed at a minimum of six weeks from the last treatment date.

Can I go back to laser tattoo removal after PhiRemoval treatment?
Yes, if you wish to go back to laser removal or proceed with laser removal after you’ve had PhiRemoval, you can proceed after six weeks from the last PhiRemoval treatment.

Can I do PhiRemoval if I have had Saline Removal?
Yes, as long as the Saline Removal treated area has fully healed at a minimum of six weeks from the last treatment date.
