A certified skin revisionist removes layers of skin from the treatment area, reducing discomfort with a numbing agent. She then applies a cleaning solution that removes the unwanted ink. A detailed list of home care instructions is provided afterward, which patients must follow for the next 10 days. The procedure effectively works on all color tattoos.
Christian Hunt is no stranger to expediting the healing process. She got her start in 1994 as a licensed massage therapist and made the leap to acupuncture in 2001. After a life spent sun-bathing, skiing, and hugging nuclear reactors, the jill-of-all-trades wanted to find creative ways to undo the effects of sun- and wind-damage while, as she says, “sticking it to aging.” At The Needlery, the certified skin revisionist turns her attention to that task with a trio of natural age-combatting procedures: tattoo removal, needlederm abrasion, and dermal rolling.
To oust unwanted ink, Christian uses the Tattoo Vanish system. Unlike other methods that rely on dangerous acids or limb replacements, her system employs a contraption similar to a tattoo machine to remove layers of skin until ink can be removed with cleaning solution. For fine lines and wrinkles, she trots out needlederm abrasion and dermal rolling. The former uses a machine similar to the Tattoo Vanish mechanism to administer tiny pinpricks into lines and scars, leaving room for the body to naturally replenish collagen and elastin. A small handheld wheel covered in hundreds of tiny needles, dermal rollers likewise stimulate elastin and collagen. After each procedure, Christian sits down with clients to go over thorough home-care instructions and discuss several follow-up options.
