Microblading Tattoo Removal

Our Acid solution for tattoo removal on eyebrow is formulated in various concentrations and pH levels in a wide variety of skin care products, both OTC and prescription.

Its function is to improve the skin’s appearance and texture by weakening the binding properties of the lipids that hold together the dead skin cells in the upper layer of the epidermis called the stratum corneum to reveal new living skin cells below.

In other words, you can successfully remove the tattoo ink from the cured skin from your old eyebrow because the ink is typically deposited on the dermal layer of the skin, our Acid solution exfoliate the skin, which makes it a common key ingredient in many chemical peels. While physician-strength office peels can be strong enough to completely exfoliate the epidermis to address concerns such as fine lines, hyperpigmentation, actinic keratosis, and many other skin conditions related to sun-damage.

Q & A

What is Acid Solution?

Is a popular non-prescription skin peeling agent commonly used by doctors, health spas and private individuals to remove fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars on the face. Has also been used to remove calluses, stretch marks, age spots, moles and much more. This acid solution has twice been medically tested and proven to fade and/or remove tattoos. Results were published in the British Journal of Plastic Surgery and the South African Medical Journal. In both studies was found to be a safe, simple and effective tattoo removal agent with an 85% success rate. It was first mentioned as a possible tattoo removal agent in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 1928.

How does Tattoo removal acid solution work?

The process behind the most popular tattoo removal methods is actually very simple. A controlled inflammation is generated on the surface of the skin above the tattoo. This inflammation causes the pigment (ink) to naturally break apart and migrate to the surface with new skin growth. Your body does most of the work. Doctors agree that generating this controlled inflammation repeatedly over time is what it takes to fade or remove a tattoo. Is the gentlest way known to generate the controlled inflammation necessary for tattoo removal and it can be done in the privacy of our homes.

Does the treatment hurt?

Some people say it has a mild sting, others say it doesn’t sting at all. It doesn’t hurt nearly as much as getting the tattoo and certainly not as much as laser tattoo removal. Ladies using this solution for facial peels will occasionally use a hand-held fan to cool themselves. If you are uncomfortable with the feeling, you can always stop it by applying the neutralizer.

Is this acid solution a tattoo removal cream?

No, it is not. Looks and feels like water and is applied with a q-tip exactly where you want it to go. Has also been medically proven twice to remove tattoos and the creams have not. Many tattoo removal creams contain Hydroquinone, which is usually the active ingredient in skin bleaching creams. Over the counter sales of skin bleaching creams containing Hydroquinone are banned in the UK, France, Australia, Japan and several other countries because Hydroquinone is known to cause cancer and a debilitating skin disease called Exogenous Ochronosis.

Are There Risks Using Acid Solution tattoo removal?

Risks associated with 12% – 25% are less than those encountered by laser tattoo removal. There is no scarring using the concentrations mentioned in combination with our instructions. A slight redness over the treatment area may persist for several weeks or months and then fade away. Hypopigmentation is a common byproduct of laser and this solution for tattoo removal and may be of concern for dark-completed people. If you have an existing skin condition, speak with your physician before using.

How Often Do I Apply the Acid solution?

You should apply approximately once every six weeks. After applying the solution, it takes roughly two weeks for the treated skin to begin to peel. Once peeling begins it takes about one week for all the dead skin to come off. After the dead skin has come off you’ll want to rest the area for another two or three weeks before starting your next peel.

The instructions included with your purchase take you step by step through the application and peel cycle. Nothing has been left to chance. Plus, you can always call or email us if you have additional questions.

How Fast Does It Work?

Many Acid Solutions users have seen a noticeable reduction in brilliance (color) after the first few applications. You may also see a softening of the borders and fine lines during this period. In some cases, very fine lines may be removed after the first application. The time required depends on the depth of the peel achieved and the specifics of the tattoo.

Can I Use the Acid Solution If I’m Pregnant or Breast Feeding?

While there are no medical studies we know of saying not to use it while pregnant or breast-feeding, does not recommend it. Even though has been around over 165 years and its risks should be well known, we encourage you to wait until you are no longer pregnant or breast-feeding before using it.

Is It OK to Tan or Workout When Using Acid Solution tattoo removal?

While using you should keep the treated area covered whenever you’re outdoors. New skin is photosensitive––meaning more subject to sun damage––so it should always be protected with a strong sun block and appropriate clothing while outdoors. Working out is not a problem as long as the treatment area isn’t getting rubbed on by clothing, exercise equipment or twisted/pulled by a particular movement.

Does Acid Solution tattoo removal Work On All Colors?

Unlike laser tattoo removal Acid solution tattoo removal works equally well on all colors. We are not sure why this is, but the greens, blues, oranges, yellows and other laser resistant colors are not a problem for users. May also work better than lasers when removing ankle bracelet tattoos. It may have to do with the relative lack of blood flow and tissue in that region.

How Long Will It Take to Remove My Tattoo With this Acid Solution?

It’s impossible to know how long it will take until two possibly three treatments are complete. The depth the ink was applied, the type of ink used and the age of the tattoo all play a role in the removal process. Even our own bodies have a say in how long it will take. This is the most frequently asked question in tattoo removal and it can’t be answered with any precision.

Can I Use this Acid Solution Prior To Getting A Cover Up?

Yes, many of our customers use to fade existing tattoos before getting their cover up. Acid Solution users regularly fade black tribal tattoos to a lighter shade of gray, giving them a much wider selection of colors for the new tattoo.

Is It Harder to Remove Older Tattoos?

Newer tattoos will come off easier than older ones. However, some inks used today are highly resistant to any form of removal. Conversely, older tattoo inks sometimes come out very quickly with little effort. Some customers report they’ve successfully removed 30-35-year-old tattoos using this Acid Solution.
