Alec Falkenham, Canadian grad-student has recently upped the standard and tech-advancement for tattoo removal treatment.
Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia Ph.D. student in pathology, Alec Falkenham has created a procedure to remove tattoos without the use of lasers.
Bisphosphonate Liposomal Tattoo Removal, his newly developed treatment process, uses a cream-like substance and makes use of the body’s natural defense mechanisms as it pertains to skin care. Funny though it may be, Mr. Falkenham is not against tattoos, case in point has four and is not looking to get them removed.
"This idea started when I got my first tattoo and I was thinking of the tattoo process from an immune point of view," Falkenham said in a news release. "Since then, I have added three more and currently don't regret any of them -- but that's probably a reflection on me waiting until I was older."
In retrospect, the ink soaks into the skin, over time, microscopic particles begin the process of breaking down that ink and the tattoo begins to fade. These microscopic particles are called Macrophages, a type of white blood cell. This newly developed cream boosts the effect of these macrophages and assists in expediting the process of breaking down the tattoo.
Though the initial research has proved promising, more is required to build on his results before the product can be sold.
