Tatt2Away® uses an innovative technique for removing tattoo pigment that works in conjunction with the body’s natural healing process. A proprietary solution is introduced into the tattoo that binds with the tattoo pigment and then is incorporated into a scab, that when it drops off, reveals the eliminated pigment underneath. This proprietary process is called Trans Epidermal Pigment Release® “TEPR®”, and is a new way for tattoo removal. TEPRSOL®, the patented solution that is utilized, brings out the pigment which is found under the scab when it falls off showing that the ink has been expelled from the body.
Over 2500 treatments have been performed worldwide using Tatt2Away, providing the confidence of consistent outcomes and a proven technology.
The Tatt2Away patented system is unlike laser tattoo removal that fractures the pigment ingredients into smaller particles in order to be eliminated from the body. Some researchers have found these smaller particles in critical organs of the body that may prove to be potentially dangerous and even carcinogenic.
Tattoo Ink Research
In a laboratory within FDA’s Arkansas-based National Center for Toxicological Research (NCTR), research chemist Paul Howard, Ph.D. has also shown that some pigment migrates from the tattoo site to the body’s lymph nodes. Whether the migration of tattoo ink has health consequences or not is still unknown. NCTR is doing further research to answer this and other questions. Tatt2Away’s process actually draws out the ink and pigment from the body in the escharotic healing process.
