Does the Tattoo Vanish method of tattoo removal work?

I have been looking into getting a tattoo removed and came across a place that does the tattoo vanish method where they tattoo the area and apply an all natural saline based solution, let it sit for 10 minutes, wash it off and it supposedly draws the ink out with the scab that forms. Has anybody heard of this method or do you have any information on it? I have been searching online and can't find anything bad. I checked the better business bureau and they have a rating of A-, no complaints. Please someone give me some insight on this.

that is not what I asked...what I asked was why on earth would tattoo vanish charge the same as laser when a laser costs so much and doctors perform it and tattoo vanish uses salt and a tattoo machine but they charge the same for a session? you know that is heartless and you can not justify it

I didn't ask if tattoo vanish is cheaper than laser

I've had 4 sessions and my tattoo is nowhere near gone and lasers are now made specifically for tattoo removal...so you're trying to tell us that it took a lot of time and money to realize that if you break the skin salt will remove a tattoo..ok

I know, I get it, I know a few people who I follow online that get really good results, my scab stayed on for 2-3 weeks each time and don't get me wrong it did remove some ink just not as dramatic as other people that I've seen online. The only reason I started with laser is it is just too hard to have a scab on my arm for 2 weeks with my job. the results from laser have been disappointing too

Interestin..comments . Are you not pleased with lthe situation? Did it vanish? Hurt? I would love to see images rlto see what you have or are stuck with. Which is a whole new catagoryl. If it anywhere near your pie hole, i.e. , your face count your blessings fine sir. Bigrx2've often wondered myself laughing if I would be a candidate for such a proces. So I will love my back tatts and call it a day. Mr comcern is for your experience. Maybe another professional with leave you with a more positive and enlightening ng experience. Gorgeous

Does anyone know what exactly is in Tattoo Vanish? Just what are these 'safe, non-toxic' ingredients. I can't find any specifics anywhere

I searched online and was able to find the ingredient list on some website relating to their patent of the product. From what I remember it is saline, lemon extract, chamomile and a couple other herbs I believe, I try to see if I can find it again and post it here.

I've done three treatments using this method,and it does NOT work! I started in March, did three treatments and saw barely any fading. They say the scab with the ink in it is supposed to stay on for 2 weeks, but on me, it stayed on for a month! That's one month of trying to not get it wet and having to keep it hidden. It is a major pain in the a**! And in the little amount of ink it did pull off, it pulled it off in "chunks", like all of it was there one minute and then nothing was there the next minute. It didn't fade it at all like it says it does, and the way it was coming off like this was concerning. It even left a scar. So I started doing laser tattoo removal in October, and after one treatment, I've seen more fading than I did in 7 months of Tattoo Vanish. I wish I started this in March instead of wasting my time and money. And the pain of using Tattoo Vanish was unbearable! They apply it the same way they applied the tattoo, but they can only use a weak topical anesthetic. I heard laser was unbearable, but the dermatologist I get it done with can use injections, which makes the procedure completely painless! And I have an EXTREMELY low tolerance for pain! Parts of the injections hurt, but I completely recommend it if you're afraid to do laser because of the pain. I go to my next treatment in a few days and I can't wait! Some parts of my tattoo that have thinner lines will be completely gone after this next treatment! Just do what doctors recommend and go with laser treatment for tattoo removal! Do not waste your time doing rejuvi with tattoo vanish!

Rejuvi & tattoo vanish are two different procedures. Who did the tattoo vanish treatment if you don't mind me asking?

Hi jd29, can you post pics of your treatments? I have seen that it does fade, but will it remove completely? thanks!

Hey, I was trying to send deadandlovely a PM but it wont let me from my phone. This might be a long post so bear with me... I have had 4 tattoo vanish treatments done followed by one laser treatment & the tattoo vanish did work but not as good as I had hoped, I haven't been taking any progress photos but I did see results afyer my first treatment. My tattoo is huge & I get the sessions for 200 a piece. When I first heard about it I researched it fo days & it seems that some people that perform the.procedure get better results than others. For deadandlovely, one person that Ive.been sort of stalking online that gets.amazimg results is Gayle Short at Permanently Pretty in Florida, check out her.facebook page she has tons of pictures with great results. I saw that youre in Florida so Id check her out, I was actually thinking of flying to Florida to have her do mine. She probably gets the best results that Ive seen, I dont know why or what she does differently but she gets results. Some other facebook pages that Ive seen of people getting good results are...georgia boys ink works in georgia, sinnister ink if Nevada, ink 180 in chicago. The reason that I started laser is because I won a free tattoo removal online, I did one session & I see no change at all, the place doing i is a new med spa in chicago. The scab that you get with tattoo vanish is huge & a pain in the *** as the other poster said. It does hurt but only because it takes so much longer than laser. Laser hurts but its so quick that really tattoo vanish hurts more imo ( if that makes sense). But I would take any physical pain to get this off of me so I just want results. I dont know what Im going to do at this point, my next laser session is scheduled for Wednesday but Im debating canceling it & going back to doing tattoo vanish, I just want this thing gone & dont want to waste my time but maybe the second session will get better results. Im so frustrated with all of this. Sorry I couldn't help more

Rejuvi is the method of applying a salt and having the scab at the surface of your skin. Tattoo vanish is the salt that is used for rejuvi. In reply to your post below, you really should do one more laser treatment and see how it goes. As you know, it takes like a week and a half to heel so it's not that long.

Again, rejuvi & tattoo vanish are two totally different procedures. Rejuvi injects lactic acid into your tattoo & it started in the UK. Tattoo vanish uses a tattoo machine and a saline solution. Google is your friend

You are rude. I asked the same question when I went to get the procedure done when he handed me a rejuvi pamphlet. This is what I was told from the guy who does the procedure. I think he knows more than you. :)

I wasn't trying to be rude, sorry if it came across that way. Maybe the guy does know more than me but rejuvi and tattoo vanish are two totally different procedures. Im sorry but it is a fact. Please don't get offended, Im just trying to help and don't want any misinformation out there. Rejuvi and tattoo vanish are totally different and not related in any way. Sorry

I guess Rejuvi is used as a model to show how tattoo vanish works. He says it's the same "method", although they may be different procedures.
