Tatt2Away® Revolutionizes Green Tattoo Removal Industry
Earth Day is held every year on April 22nd to celebrate this blue marble we call Earth. It began in 1970 as an effort to raise awareness and promote action for environmental protection and sustainability. Earth Day has grown into a global movement with millions of people participating in activities such as planting trees, cleaning up litter, and advocating for policy changes to protect the planet, especially with the emergence and growth of social media.
The day serves as a reminder of the importance of taking care of our planet and encourages individuals and communities to take action to reduce their environmental impact. At Tatt2Away, we pride ourselves on having a lower impact on the environment than some other forms of tattoo removal. Read more about how Tatt2Away works with the environment!
Low Impact on the Environment
To understand the impact of Tatt2Away on the environment, it’s important to understand what Tatt2Away actually is! Tatt2Away is a tattoo removal system that uses a patented method called Trans-Epidermal Pigment Release (TEPR) to remove tattoos. Unlike traditional tattoo removal methods, which use lasers or surgery to break up or remove ink, Tatt2Away works by extracting ink from the skin using a microdermabrasion technique paired with a special solution that is applied to the tattooed area.
This method causes the skin to lift and peel, taking the ink out with it. The Tatt2Away system is designed to be less painful, more effective, and less likely to cause scarring than traditional tattoo removal methods, making it a popular choice for people looking to remove unwanted tattoos. The treatment is performed by trained technicians at licensed Tatt2Away centers or around the United States at various tattoo removal studios or aesthetic centers (such as dermatology offices).
This method requires less energy consumption than other methods– such as laser tattoo removal –making it friendlier for the environment. The main source of waste from Tatt2Away would be the physical items required to use this method. Physical waste, such as gauze, gloves, or needles is the only real environmental impact. Tatt2Away products are designed with the environment in mind, and we strive to minimize the waste these products could potentially produce. To prevent environmental harm, these products are disposed of properly.
Environmental Comparison to Laser
Different removal methods have different levels of environmental impact. Laser tattoo removal has a particular impact in terms of energy consumption and waste generation.
First, laser tattoo removal requires a significant amount of energy to power the laser, which can contribute to greenhouse gas emissions and other forms of pollution. Additionally, the cooling systems used to keep the skin from burning during laser tattoo removal require significant energy to operate.
Second, laser tattoo removal can generate hazardous waste in the form of leftover ink particles and other materials from the tattoo removal process. These materials may contain heavy metals, toxins, and other harmful substances, and must be properly disposed of to prevent environmental contamination.
Finally, the process of tattoo removal can also result in physical waste, such as gauze, gloves, and other materials used during the procedure. These items must also be properly disposed of to prevent environmental harm.
While the environmental impact of laser tattoo removal may be relatively small compared to other industries, it is still important to consider and minimize the environmental impact of any procedure or product whenever possible.
