Questions & Answers
What is the Tattoo Removal Technique Using Needles 88RS®?
The Tattoo Remoov™ Technique by Linda Paradis is a non-laser method of removing tattoos using the non-invasive patented needles 88RS® created by the Linda Paradis Group. It does not require anesthesia due to minor discomfort, does not cause bleeding or inflammation and does not create scars. The Tattoo Removal product is composed of neither acid or saline solutions, and it has a basic Ph of 8.5. The training in the Tattoo Remoov™ technique is available for PMU professionals with experience.
What are the ingredients of the Tattoo Remoov™ solution?
- Zinc Oxide;
- Magnesium Oxide;
- Calcium Oxide;
- Benzoic Acid (This is not an acid. It is a preservative for cosmetic products);
- Deionized Water;
- Food and Cosmetic Molecules;
How does the technique work?
The back and forth movement of the patented needles 88RS® on the skin deeply exfoliates the stratum corneum (the layer of the epidermis consisting of dead cells) and elevates the temperature of the water in the skin. The needles 88RS® scratch the skin just enough without cutting it due to the round square needle concept created by Linda Paradis. The elevation of the water temperature in the skin generates an invisible evaporation of the water inside of the skin, causing the tattoo removal product to be sucked inside of the dermis since the tattoo removal product consists of 30% of water. Once the Tattoo Remoov™ serum is inside of the dermis it recognizes the ferric oxide of the pigment molecules which are also inside of the dermis, causing the pigment to come out of the dermis. The pigment then comes out of the skin and up to the surface because of the elevation in temperature without cutting the skin. Thus, the procedure is non-invasive.
Can I perform the technique in any person?
Yes, the procedure can be safely performed in any type of skin; however, just like in most beauty procedures, the Tattoo Remoov™ cannot be performed in pregnant or breastfeeding women, individuals going through chemo or radio therapy, immune deficient individuals, as well as individuals with advanced diabetes unless express consent from their doctor has been given.
Can I remove any tattoos or any colors?
The Tattoo Remoov™ technique using needles 88RS® safely removes any colors of cosmetic or body tattoo as well as hair scalp tattoos.
How many sessions are necessary to complete remove a tattoo?
The amount of sessions depends on the person’s age and type of skin, the person’s immune system, the age and depth of the tattoo, as well as the type of pigment that was used. There are tattoos that are easily removed with some sessions, and other types of tattoos might take up to 8 sessions or more. There is no way of predicting how many sessions an individual will need.
What to expect after a Tattoo Remoov™ procedure using needles 88RS®?
Immediately after the procedure the individual’s skin might appear slightly red, however, the redness disappears shortly thereafter or within a day. Minor swelling or discomfort might also appear. However, most individuals go out and about with their normal lives without any interruptions if the aftercare protocol is properly followed. As with most beauty procedures, the individual must not apply any makeup on the treated area for at least 7 days and should avoid sun tanning or swimming.
Why should I choose Tattoo Remoov™ over other techniques?
Choosing the right method to work with or what to offer to your clients is a very personal choice. However, the Tattoo Remoov™ technique is a natural and safe way to remove tattoos since the product contains no harmful or harsh ingredients and the healing time is rather fast when compared to other methods. Also, this method is non-aggressive, non-laser, non-invasive and doesn’t require anesthesia of any type.

At Beauty Build we strive to work with products we believe in, and so it is with the tattoo removal product line and technique by Linda Paradis Group using the patented needles 88RS®. Having the safety of our students and clients in mind, we will list here some documents which we find will educate you on regulation of the products used in this technique both in the USA and Europe.
Country of Origin/Cerficate of Free Sale: The Tattoo Removal product is made in the USA by Cynergy Laboratories located in New York. A Certificate of Free Sale has been issued by the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce to both the laboratory and Linda Paradis Product. A Certificate of Free Sale is evidence that goods, such as food items, cosmetics, biologics, or medical devices are legally sold or distributed in the open market, freely without restriction, and approved by the regulatory authorities (FDA) in the country of origin, in this case, the United States.

FDA Regulation: The Tattoo Remoov™ serum by the Linda Paradis Group has been voluntary registered with the FDA via the Form 2512 in the Voluntary Cosmetic Registration Program (VCRP). The VCRP allows companies to register their cosmetic products and ingredients being distributed in the US market. The VCRP is not a cosmetic approval program as cosmetics are not subject to FDA premarket approval. However, through this program companies ensure that its cosmetic products and ingredients are safe and properly labeled, in full compliance with the law.
MSDS Report: The Material Safety Data Sheet is a document that contains information on the potential hazards (health, fire, reactivity and environmental) and how to work safely with the chemical product. It is an essential starting point for the development of a complete health and safety program. The MSDS for the tattoo removal product contains information on the use, storage, shelf life, composition and information on the ingredients, among of other important information. The MSDS contains much more information about the material than the label. MSDS reports are prepared by the supplier or manufacturer of the material. It is intended to tell what the hazards of the product are, how to use the product safely, what to expect if the recommendations are not followed, what to do if accidents occur, how to recognize symptoms of overexposure, and what to do if such incidents occur.
Even though the Tattoo Remoov™ product along with needles 88RS® is a safe product as it contains no acids or saline solutions, we will be happy to provide you with a copy of the MSDS report for your review having your comfort in mind.
CPNP - Having the safety of European professionals in mind, the Linda Paradis Group has also filed a CPNP registration (Cosmetic Products Notification Portal). The CPNP is an electronic interface that supports the implementation of Regulation (EC) No. 1223/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 30 November 2009 on cosmetic products. In practical legal terms, but not literally, The CPNP in Europe is somewhat compared to the FDA in the USA.
