Tattoo removal is a process in which laser skin resurfacing methods are used to break down the ink and pigmentation for disposal by the body’s natural immune system’s processes. Tattoo ink particles in the skin are typically much too large to be removed, hence why they are permanently displayed over the course of one’s life. Laser tattoo removal and skin resurfacing breaks down the larger tattoo ink particles into much smaller ones capable of being carried out and filtered by the body naturally.
Due to natural coloration and skin pigmentation, some colors of ink are tougher to break down and require more outpatient visits than usual or could result in longer and/or more intense removal sessions.
You are as unique as your tattoo. The removal of a tattoo must be tailored to your specific needs. Lighter colors and fluorescent inks can be stubborn because they they absorb differently then darker inks and sometimes they may contain chemicals such as iron oxide or titanium dioxide which may make then tougher to break up.
Unwanted dark and multi-colored tattoos can be safely and effectively eliminated with our range of tattoo removal treatments. Using a combination of laser wavelengths that target different ink colors, high-intensity light beams break up the ink particles in the tattoo, revealing clear, ink-free skin with minimal risk of scarring or hypopigmentation.
Before your laser tattoo removal session, one of our medical professional will evaluate your skin type and tattoo to determine the type of laser to use and how many treatments you’ll need. The number depends on your tattoo’s age, size, type, and pigment depth.
