If you’ve ever had a tattoo regret, then you’ll understand how frustrating it can be when it comes to getting rid of that ink. After stumbling over a fairly new non-invasive tattoo removal technique – the Tattoo Remoov 88 – that doesn’t involve any lasers, I decided to dig deeper into it. And to pull this off, I went to the master herself – Linda Paradis. A pro in all things tattoo and permanent makeup removal, she is also the CEO and Founder of the Linda Paradis Group, as well as a world-renowned tattoo removal trainer. And to top it all off, she has the honor of being the first to develop and launch a safe and non-invasive tattoo removal technique.
How long has the Tattoo Remoov 88 been around, and what’s its success rate?
Linda: Around the world, the system has been operational since 2016. 10 years of research and testing. As for the GCC, we have just launched this non-invasive tattoo removal technique here. Beginning with Dubai, the system will look to spread across GCC owing to the high demand for PMU (permanent makeup) and body ink removal.
How/when did you get started, and what inspired you?
Linda: I have been a demographist and international trainer in Dermopigmentation since 1996. Over the years, a tremendous amount of people came to me for help with scars from previous unsuccessful laser tattoo removal methods or other chemical technics as acid or hight basic products. So the main purpose has always been to help people regain their confidence and provide them with an easier alternative to painful procedures.
How does Tattoo Remoov 88 work?
Linda: Tattoo Remoov 88 is a unique and non-invasive tattoo removal technique that targets body and PMU and is used exclusively with cartridges 88. Tattoo Remoov composition is 40% water and molecules made of food and cosmetic industry molecules and deionized water. Used along with cartridges 88, it only works its magic on the surface of the skin without penetrating the dermis or forming any crust, or pain or scars. And the person can live life normally, shower, spa, and do any physical activities among others.
What is the difference between this method and the popular laser tattoo removal? Do the results of each vary?
Linda: The obvious answer is that there is no pain with Tattoo Remoov 88. There is no scarring, no blood, and no collagen induction. The technique is inverse to laser. It simply takes the pigment out of the skin while laser, on the other hand, pushes it deep into the skin and liberates in body and blood via vessels. The efficiency is more; there is no need to numb the area before ink removal. This treatment also needs fewer sessions compared to any other available in the market.
Is the success of the treatment dependent on color and size of the tattoo? Does it remove all tattoo colors? What else is it dependent on?
Linda: It is successful over any area or body part. However, the time, sessions etc. vary according to the body part, size of the tattoo, and body area. And it absolutely works on all colors even white, and all types of skin even the most sensitive of skin types.
How many sessions are required to completely get rid of a tattoo using this method?
Linda: This really depends on the area and size of a tattoo as well as the skin type, texture, quality deepness and quantity of pigment into the skin.
Does it also work on layered tattoos?
Linda: Yes, this non-invasive tattoo removal technique does. The sessions depend on the kind of tattoo, nature of the tattoo and where it is positioned. It is the same for layered tattoos.
How painful is the procedure?
Linda: It is the world’s only non-invasive and painless procedure for PMU and ink removal. Regarding the pain, on a scale of 1 – 10, some clients said 2, and those quite sensitive can say 5; depending on their humor as well.
As a non-invasive tattoo removal technique, it there a downtime? If yes, what’s the recovery period after one session?
Linda: The period of recovery is between 10 days to 3 weeks approximatively for permanent makeup. As for body ink, it takes anywhere between 5 and 6 weeks approximatively. But it also depends on other factors like the type of skin, client health, and don’t forget every skin heals differently. But the most important is the final result – no keloids or any hypertrophic or atrophic scars.
Are there any side-effects?
Linda: There are no side effects; just slight redness for a few days.
What are the proper protocols and after-care that need to be followed after each session?
Linda: There is a wonderful organic aftercare cream which has a varied composition of orange oil, lemon oil, jojoba oil and other natural ingredients to be applied to your skin thereafter.
Linda: To get the best results Ink removal with Tattoo Remoov 88 must absolutely be done by a professional who has experience in permanent makeup, and who has done sufficient training in this non-invasive tattoo removal technique. Also, clients must absolutely follow hygienic practices at home as well as remember to use the recommended daily after cares and cleanser gel. Also, remember that a tattoo is for life and not easy to take off like makeup. Several sessions are required. I always explain to my clients that the most important is not the numbers of sessions, but the results – a clean skin without any form of damage.
