Underestimated problem with laser tattoo removal

 

What happens if during laser treatment the tattoo ink is not transported into the lymph nodes or dark shadows are visible, is shown in this picture of the surface of the hand of a 30-year-old Bosnian.  

Peter S. from Sarajevo was with the result after 15! laser treatments, but he had a strange feeling and a slight elevation at the treated area. He also wanted to get rid of the shadows that were visible after the laser treatment. He contacted our experienced SKINIAL trainer Tea GRUBESIC from Sarajevo who immediately set a first dot and noticed a surprising reaction.  

With high pressure, a large amount of black liquid poured onto the skin surface.  

 

What happened there?  

The biggest dangers of laser treatment are that the dermis is burned by the laser, which can reach temperatures of up to 900°C, and the skin is permanently damaged, or the heat changes the pigment ink chemically to BENZENE and BLUE ACID. This is often not visible from the outside, as the epidermis usually heals normally again, even if burns have occurred during the treatment,  

During a normal laser treatment, the ink is usually stored in the lymph nodes via the lymphatic system.  

However, the practitioner immediately realised that the shadows observed by the client were not a residual colour to be removed but consisted of 95% of the original pigment colour and wound fluid. She now placed further dots very tightly so that the fluid that had accumulated in a space between the epidermis and the dermis could escape completely. This can be seen very clearly in the treated wound which does not bleed because the SKIN-DO-MA technique does not penetrate the dermis.  

Shortly after the treatment Peter S. had no more strange feeling on his hand and also the elevation had disappeared. We will follow the further development, but we expect a problem-free healing.  

Many customers know this. After dozens of laser treatments “dirty” shadows remain. How many of these are colour bubbles and how many pigment residues, which are unreachably deep for laser removal, are difficult to see from the outside. The best advice one can give customers is to do a compatibility test in a SKINIAL studio, where a single dot is set. Thereby, one can immediately recognize if the shadow is residual colour or if it is a filled colour bubble that absolutely has to be emptied.
