TOP-HEALTH-TODAY’S OVERALL RATING: 40%
After evaluating EliminInk™, we have found that this is a treatment that is similar to a tattoo or permanent makeup application. A machine is used to implant this product into the tissue and helps break down the pigment or ink of tattoos and permanent makeup. This may be painful as stated by the manufacturer.
It appears that this tattoo removal treatment can only be performed by a trained professional in a medical setting. A physician, Certified tattoo artist, make-up artist, or medical aesthetician or nurse under the supervision of a physician must perform these treatments. This is because these individuals have been trained to perform these treatments and have become certified based on the treatment requirements.
EliminINK is intended for tattoos made at home and also professionally made tattoos. Do NOT have EliminINK tattoo removal treatments performed on areas like the eyelids for removal purposes of tattooed eyeliner or eyebrows.
As mentioned EliminINK treatments may be painful and can feel like the original tattooing process. In some cases, a topical anesthetic is needed to numb the area before a treatment is performed. Treatment time can vary. It takes approximately 30 - 45 minutes to treat a 2" x 2" tattoo or four square inches. After treatment, you may notice scabbing. Do not pick at scabs as it could lead to scarring on the skin.
According to the manufacturer, EliminInk™ contains DermRenu which helps minimize scarring. There is no information stating how much this procedure costs, but the manufacturer claims that you must keep a bandage on the treated area for 48 hours.

Negatives on EliminInk™:
After evaluation of EliminINK we feel that this is a painful treatment procedure that can become expensive and time consuming if tattoos are larger than four square inches.
