Our removal liquid is neither classed as a medicine, medical or consumer product. It is considered equivalent to a cosmeceutical product.
We have been using Skinial ‘lactic acid’ as a removal liquid since May 2010. Lactic acid is a substance that also appears and is produced and disintegrated by the human metabolism. Long before we worked with it, it was used successfully by others for tattoo removal. The liquid is manufactured by a certified pharmaceutical company according to our own formula and bottled in a sterile environment in an ampoule.
We currently meet the highest standards of hygiene. Although tattooing has a long tradition and almost cult status, it will be progressively regulated.
Our Skinial Studios take advantage of our own department of research and development, where medical doctors and pharmacists work for the development of this relatively new field of activity (tattoo removal). Our researchers develop and test new methods and products for their effectiveness and tolerance.
Employees and franchise partners participate in on-going basic and advanced training in order to be up to date with latest developments in the industry. We concentrate on the latest research results as well as on the most exacting training requirements that currently exist at a European level. Those of the Austrian Supervision of Trade (Regulation of the Federal Ministry for Economy and Labour regarding the condition of access for the regulated trade of cosmetics (beauty care) Federal Official Gazette (BGBt.11) No. 399/2008) are based on the freedom of trade – in Germany, there are no such concrete regulations.
You should know that:
1. Our removal liquid is composed of a 'lactic acid' and it removes every colour of tattoo ink in the treated area, usually after a single treatment.
2. Lactic acid irritates the skin and it must not be applied by untrained personnel. The liquid must not come into contact with the eyes and mucous membranes or clothing. If this happens, rinse with plenty of water. If irritation occurs, please seek medical attention immediately.
3. We recommend a patch/tolerance test be carried out before a full treatment in order to identify any allergic reaction. However, allergic reactions are very rare.
4. In the rare case of a skin reaction, please contact your general practitioner, and send an email to Dr. med Cato Lattacher at info@Skinial.com and inform precise details of the inflammation and, if possible, a photograph. We will investigate the matter immediately.
