Laser Tattoo Removal – Solution For Your Unwanted Tattoos
Say Goodbye to Unwanted Tattoos
Advanced laser technology is often able to erase or diminish the tattoo mark you no longer want and at Aesthetic Skin & Laser Center, we use the most effective tattoo removal lasers available on the market.
Tattoo ink is removed by using specific wavelengths of light which pass through the skin, but are absorbed by the ink. The rapid absorption of the light energy causes the tattoo ink to break down. The ink is then absorbed and disposed of by the body. Using a state-of-the-art Medlite Laser and a ruby laser, Aesthetic Skin & Laser Center technicians are able to treat most ink colors. The result of the specific combination of wavelength and rapidly pulsed light allows tattoos to be effectively treated with minimal damage to the skin and with less discomfort than other laser treatments.
By using 2 different lasers, we can be more effective in clearing tattoos. The impact of the laser energy feels similar to the snap of a thin rubber band. The majority of tattoo removal patients do not require anesthesia.
On average, professional tattoos typically require 5-8 treatments. Amateur tattoos typically require 4-5 treatments, all spaced approximately 6-8 weeks apart. The number of treatments needed depends on the amount and type of ink used and the depth of the ink in the skin. Occasionally, more than 10 treatments may be needed. Greater than 95% fading of the tattoo is often accomplished, but this is dependent on the ink used in the tattoo, patient’s age, skin type, age of tattoo, color, size and depth.
