Laser Tattoo Removal

In the past, the removal of a tattoo left an unsightly scar, but by using a laser it can be significantly lightened and reduced, even across a wide variety of tattoo inks.

Procedures
The tattoo laser procedure may take anywhere between 10 minutes to one hour depending on the tattoo. Continuous high-powered laser pulses lasting for less than one millionth of a second are aimed at the tattoo. Not all tattoo colors respond the same to lasers, multiple lasers may be needed. In order to allow time for your skin to heal and your body to absorb and dissolve the ink, this procedure will most likely need to be completed in multiple sessions over several months. Individual time frames vary, scheduling a consultation will better determine the amount of time the procedure will take.

Post Procedures
Clients are able to work immediately following treatment. Experiencing a sun burnt sensation is common. If prescribed, there is pain medication available. Scabbing, crusting or slight bleeding can last for several days. When showering, do not scrub the treated area. Results are permanent and can been seen after a few days. The redness will fade as will the ink.

Removal Results
There are noticible results just after one treatment. There will be a more permanent removal over a longer period of time with several treatments.
