How The treatment Works
Using laser technology, we can greatly reduce or even completely remove tattoos that are no longer desired. The machine is focused on the ink for between 15 and 45 minutes, where it breaks up the particles under the dermis and begins to dissipate them. This can take several sessions before the tattoo is sufficiently faded or removed.
Low scar risk and effective treatments give you the best option for removing your tattoo with optimal results.
Using Lasers for Tattoo Removal
Lasers are the safest and most effective method of removing most tattoos. Patients can expect excellent results!
Most colors can be treated, although newer flourescent colors may be more difficult to remove. Darker colors, like blacks and blues, are the easiest to remove as they are the easiest to target with lasers. Yellow and green, or other light colors, can be more difficult to properly focus on.
Laser tattoo removal is the safest way to remove a tattoo with the least risk of scarring the skin. Risk of scarring is very low, about 5% for most patients. It is important to follow the post-treatment instructions you receive in order to keep this risk low.
