The Benefits of The Eraser System
The ERASER™ System is a new and unique approach to tattoo removal. It has been described as “un-tattooing.” The fundamental principles behind the ERASER™ System are dislodgement of the tattoo ink particles from their biological anchors, mobilization and for the first time, extraction of the ink particles. The projected result is effective (a tattoo that is rendered visibly imperceptible) removal that can be performed in a single treatment session at a low cost. It also avoids the possible late adverse effects from having tattoo ink particles gain access to the body’s lymphatic system and beyond.
The Downsides of Laser Tattoo Removal
Laser tattoo removal is the use of resonant frequency to free trapped tattoo ink particles from their cellular captors in the skin. Dermatologists (mainly) can use a plethora of lasers to match the frequency according to the size, composition, color and depth of the particles. No one single laser can treat all of the colors used in modern tattooing. The dislodged particles are absorbed and carried away by the body’s lymphatic system. Laser tattoo removal, however, is an inexact process. The matching of laser frequencies while complicated in single color tattoos is significantly more challenging in complex, three-dimensional, multi-color tattoos (Pictures and Diagram 4 below). Other issues of laser tattoo removal include pain and substantial heating of the skin. It also requires many time consuming, costly treatments for “effective” removal, which limits access to it. Despite this, laser tattoo removal is rarely completely effective and leaves residual shadow tattoos, depigmentation, and scarring. Finally, as previously stated, absorption of additional tattoo ink particles is considered to be potentially harmful.
