Tattoo removal has come a long way in recent years. In the past, it could only be concealed with makeup. Today, tattoos can be removed completely. We are proud to use only the most cutting-edge laser systems to offer tattoo removal that is faster, safer and more effective than ever before.
How Laser Tattoo Removal Works
Laser tattoo removal works by using a high-intensity light beam (laser) to break up the pigment colors. Black tattoo pigment is the easiest color to treat because it absorbs all laser wavelengths. A technician will start by examining your tattoo and skin. This helps them find the most effective energy for your treatment. Once the perfect wavelength is identified, the technician will use the laser to transmit intense light pulses through the top layers of your skin. Only the tattoo pigment will absorb the energy, and your skin will remain unharmed.
It is Fast
Treatments are performed in the comfort of our office. They are designed to be quick and easy, even for those with busy schedules.
Lasers Can Remove “Permanent” Tattoos
Thanks to ever-advancing technology, you can see even the most stubborn tattoos fade before your eyes after a series of sessions.
It is Safer Than Ever
Laser tattoo removal is much safer than alternative tattoo removal methods. For example, excision and dermabrasion used to be the primary methods of removing tattoos. However, these treatments affect more than just the pigments.
Excision involved removing the actual epidermis and dermis (layers of skin) to remove the tattoo. Essentially, the tattoo was cut out along with the skin.
Dermabrasion was another extremely common method of tattoo removal. It involved the top layers of skin to be scraped away, removing the layers of ink along with it. Then, new skin cells were encouraged to grow.
As you can imagine, both of the above treatments have their downsides. As such, professional tattoo removal via a laser is the best way to go.
