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.
