Why OPM Eraser System is the tattoo correction and removal you need
Here’s something your dermatologist won’t tell you: laser removal is not effective on all ink colors. Surprised? So were we when we found out. That’s why we strived to make something better. That’s why we made the OPM Eraser System.
If safe and effective tattoo correction and removal is what you need, then here’s the guide—and the service—for you.
What can the OPM Eraser System do?
The OPM Eraser System is the best course of action for tattoo correction and removal. It’s capable of completely removing a tattoo within three hours of application, as well as remove parts of an old tattoo after just one session.
The OPM Eraser System is used for the following:
- complete removal of tattoos;
- removal of selected portions or parts of a tattoo;
- lightening of tattoo before a cover-up; and
- removal of radiotherapy marks.
How does it work?
The tattoo correction and removal process at OPM takes only 1 and 1/2 hours per session.
The procedure is similar to the tattoo process and even uses the same tools. Here’s the breakdown:
- The OPM Eraser System tattoo extraction formula is injected into the tattooed area.
- The formula works immediately by drawing the ink upwards through the skin.
- A crust containing the tattoo ink will form over the treated area.
- The crust will begin falling away, taking the unwanted ink with it.
Note: The treated area is to be kept completely dry after treatment and while the crust is still on the skin. For more information, jump to the OPM Eraser System aftercare section.
After a session, it is possible that your tattoo will look more vivid than before. This is completely normal and is part of the removal process.
Ink pigments are not always fully ejected during the crusting process but will still be moved upwards towards the epidermis. This is then shed by the skin’s natural re-growth process over a period of months.
Also, with older tattoos, the body protects itself from foreign matter by coating the tattoo with cells; over time, this gives the tattoo a duller appearance. The OPM tattoo removal process can disturb this coating of cells, causing the original ink to appear more prominent.
The procedure has four stages of healing, namely:
- Formation of crust on the skin’s surface
- Ejection of remover and tattoo ink
- Natural removal of crust after 10-14 days
- Application of soothing cream to help healing
The skin will slowly return to normal over a period of one month.
Depending on the treated area, you will need to wait 12 to 16 weeks between treatments.
Is it really better than laser?
It really is. One session of our tattoo removal is equal to six sessions of laser treatment. That’s how effective it is. Here’s a more thorough comparison:
|OPM Eraser System||Laser removal|
|Not as expensive as laser treatment||More expensive than OPM Eraser system|
|Actually pulls the ink pigment out of the skin||Leaves carbon and ink pigments in the lymph nodes|
|Involves minimal pain or discomfort||Is known for being extremely painful|
|Will not scar as long as aftercare is followed||Has greater chances of scarring|
|Allows you to have another tattoo over the treated area||Re-tattooing over lasered area is painful|
How long will it take to remove my tattoo?
The OPM Eraser System can generally fade tattoos in 3 to 4 sessions. However, each tattoo is different, and so the effectivity of the treatment depends on the following:
- condition of the original tattoo;
- age of the tattoo;
- type of tattoo; and
- history of the tattoo.
Will the tattoo correction and removal hurt or scar?
Topical anesthesia is applied before the process to minimize any discomfort.
The only risk of scarring is when the crust is forcibly removed.
Note also that, as every person heals at varying rates, it is quite normal for some clients to notice a slightly red and raised appearance in the area treated for some weeks or months after treatment; the area will naturally heal itself.
What is the aftercare process?
- Keep the treated area dry. If the crust becomes damp or wet, has fluids weeping from it or from the extremities, or has fluid trapped beneath, then infection has likely occurred. It is important to treat this as soon as possible.
- Do not forcibly remove the crust. Doing so will cause excessive trauma to the skin and result in scarring.
- Apply hydrogen peroxide on the edges to aid healing. The area can be sterilized and dried with 2-3% hydrogen peroxide solution available from pharmacies. Apply sparingly only onto the edges of thecrust, not on the crust itself.
- Don’t expose the treated area immediately to the sun. The treated area can be more sensitive to sun exposure for some months after treatment. Use a good sunblock and expose the area gradually to the sun, avoiding prolonged exposure. Once fully healed, the area should tan as normal.
