Laser tattoo removal is a great option for targeting unwanted ink. Lasers remove tattoos by breaking up the pigment colors of the tattoo with a high-intensity light beam. Because each tattoo is unique, removal techniques must be tailored to suit each individual case.
Depending on the size and color of your tattoo, the number of treatments will vary. Our trained professionals will evaluate the tattoo area in a consultation and decide on the appropriate treatment plan with you.
One of the lasers we often use for tattoo removal is the RevLite Laser. It uses state-of-the-art Q-switched laser technology to optimize the removal of multi-colored tattoos.
The treatment itself consists of placing a handpiece against the surface of the skin and activating the laser light. As many patients describe it, each pulse feels like a grease splatter or the snapping of a rubber band against the skin.
Smaller tattoos require fewer pulses while larger ones require more. At each treatment, the tattoo should become progressively lighter.
Immediately following treatment, the area is treated with a special topical cream to aid in pigment removal. Then a bandage is used to cover and soothe the treated area. Instructions for care are given upon departure.
