Laser technology has made huge advances in the last few years and the lasers designed specifically for tattoo removal are able to effectively remove ink of all colors. The laser works by breaking down the tattoo pigment in your skin, with different wavelengths to target harder to remove colors (shades of green). As the ink breaks down, your body works to metabolize and remove it entirely. While it does hurt, the treatment is targeted and performed quickly - the laser works fast to break down the ink so the average tattoo can be treated in under a few minutes. The smaller the tattoo, the fewer pulses necessary to break down the ink and the faster the treatment. The laser emits intense light that is absorbed by the tattoo pigment, creating a shockwave, and the pigment is fragmented and therefore easier for the body’s immune and lymphatic systems to flush through your body. Once the ink is broken into smaller particles, your body works to flush these ink particles out of your system. That is why your health is critical to the success of laser tattoo removal - the healthier you are, the better and faster the ink particles will be flushed from your system, ultimately saving you time and money.
The laser only targets the tattoo ink, and there is virutally zero chance of scarring. Any scarring is most commonly the result of getting the tattoo itself. Laser treatments are the safest and most effective method for removing unwanted tattoos. Don’t trust the quick fix promises of creams or topical treatments - they will not give you the same results as laser treatments and they come a much higher chance of adverse effects. Tattoo removal is a process, because most professionaly done tattoos will take at least 6-8 treatments to completely remove - but with your commitment and our laser, you can get your skin completely back!
