What is Laser Tattoo Removal?
A series of treatments using the advanced Spectra Laser to safely and effectively fade or remove unwanted tattoos on the body. Ink particles are targeted by the laser energy and broken into smaller fragments that your body can absorb. Specific wavelengths of light target the color of the tattoo ink while leaving the surrounding skin unharmed.
Does it Hurt?
The impact of the energy forms a powerful pulse of light that creates a stinging or snapping sensation during the tattoo removal treatment. Depending on the size and location of the tattoo a topical numbing cream can be purchased and applied prior to your appointment if needed. Also a blast of chilled air is applied to the area to create a numbing and cooling effect to minimize any discomfort during the treatment. Treatment for tattoo removal is a typically a fast procedure and well tolerated by patients. At your free tattoo removal consultation our cosmetic provider and laser specialist will help assess your individual needs and make sure you are as comfortable as possible during your tattoo removal treatment.
How Does it Work?
Tattoo ink is heavily deposited deep into your skin; as a result, multiple treatments are required in order to completely remove the tattoo. Depending on the size of the tattoos and colors used, the number of treatments may vary. No two tattoos are alike: they vary in ink used, color and depth of application. Black and red inks are generally the easiest to remove; blues and greens are moderate, while the light colors such as yellow tend to be the hardest. After each tattoo removal session, you will notice your tattoo lightening as your body is safely processing and eliminating the ink. Package options are available to achieve the best results and we offer discounted pricing.
