Spa Esoteric, downtown McKinney’s only full-service spa, announces a revolutionary method of ink extraction developed to remove tattoos quickly, easily and permanently. Less painful and faster than other treatment methods, it’s also more effective, requires fewer sessions and is less expensive than laser tattoo removal.

The patented process is sold, trained and certified under the name “EliminInk.” Spa Esoteric will begin performing the procedure on May 1.

The process works much like the original tattooing process -- but instead of ink, it uses a solution formulated to bond with the original tattoo ink -- which draws the ink to the skin’s surface. It also contains a scar inhibitor to help minimize scarring. The process works on both professional and home-made tattoos, as well as permanent make-up on most areas of the body. The only treatment area that must be avoided is the eyelid. (A few medical contraindications preclude the treatment [blood thinner meds, pregnancy, etc.], which are determined in the preliminary consultation).

Why is it better? No lasers, LPLs, incisions, scarring or messy creams.

Works with all inks: The patented solution bonds with ALL permanent makeup pigments and tattoo inks.

Not color-dependent: Lasers are color-dependent. This greatly increases the potential for successful tattoo removal and decreases the overall number of treatment sessions required.

It’s fast: A treatment takes around 30 to 45 minutes to cover a 2-inch by 2-inch (a four square-inch area). After the treatment, a bandage is applied to the treated area. Results can be seen in just a few days! Many tattoos require more than one treatment – but still provide results in a shorter time-frame when compared laser. Aftercare is simple and only requires that the patients follow a short set of instructions.

The treatment can be performed only by an EliminInk-Certified tattoo artist, a permanent make-up artist, a physician, a nurse or a medical aesthetician. Spa Esoteric’s owner and aesthetician Monika Norman has been trained and certified to provide this treatment.

Spa Esoteric is the only certified provider in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The spa is located at 105 South Church St. in McKinney.
