Do you regret or want to change your tattoo? Now you can! With our superior UltraLight-Q Laser, we can safely and effectively remove or significantly lighten the appearance of your tattoo. Series of treatments are needed for optimal results.
How does laser tattoo removal work?
Laser energy is directed at the tattooed area for a fraction of a second, passing harmlessly through the outer layer of the skin and targeting the tattoo ink directly. The laser fragments the ink, allowing your body to absorb it and break it down naturally.
Can all colors be removed?
Most colors can be removed completely. Some colors may require more treatments. Even the most challenging colors will usually fade significantly. On rare occasion, certain colors may not be removable.
Will it be gone after my first treatment?
Tattoo removal requires multiple treatments. There are several different factors involved in determining how many treatments your particular tattoo will require.
Are there any limitations after treatment?
You may resume most activities soon after treatment, provided you ensure the area is not rubbed or scratched. If you are in the sun, you should cover the treated area to prevent sunburn until the skin has healed. Most importantly, follow our clinical staff’s directions; they may adjust from treatment to treatment to ensure the best results.
Can I have permanent makeup removed?
We do not treat these types of tattoos. Some cosmetic inks have metallic bases. When the laser comes in contact with these inks, it can turn black. Be cautious of anyone who says they can effectively remove cosmetic ink. Once this darkening occurs, it cannot be removed by any laser. You may end up with permanent black lip liner. Tattooed eyeliner cannot be removed due to the danger of the laser near the eye, and the ink in permanent eyebrows could migrate up the forehead causing a shadow effect.
Does it hurt?
Pain is your personal perception and everyone experiences it differently. There is a minimal amount of discomfort involved in this procedure. Prior to your treatment, you can numb the area with an anesthetic cream. As we treat the area, we cool the overlying skin with a skin cooling device. This combination of topical anesthesia and cooling air makes the procedure as comfortable as possible.
