How does the natural rejection process of the pigments in the skin work?

The natural rejection process of the pigments in the skin

Using a micropigmentation device, a small part of the epidermis is roughened in the form of small round or oval points of 0.5 cm - 0.8 cm. Then a low-concentration solution based on lactic acid is dripped onto the surface, which then penetrates to the tattoo. The color molecules of the tattoo are enveloped by macrophages (phagocytes), which previously prevented the color in the skin from the body as a foreign substance and was repelled. This activates Skinial's natural rejection process.

The removal fluid now causes the macrophage shell to separate from the color particles and the body first recognizes that they are foreign bodies. Then they are naturally expelled over several days to the skin surface. The body then repels the pigments completely independently.

In the scab, the color molecules are bound and fall off after around ten days. In the following weeks, the reddened area heals and the treatment can then be resumed or over-tattooed in the vicinity of the already removed areas. We treat in small areas, as scarcely any scars can form due to low surface tension.
