As tattoos have become more popular, the need to remove or cover them up them is also increasing. What once seemed to be a cherished work of art can sometimes becomes undesirable over the years. People are reminded of past relationships, no longer care for the artwork, or have to hide their tattoos to fit into the professional world. Whatever the reason, our fully certified technician can help you clear your tattoos and restore your healthy, natural skin. Or simply provide you with the option to lighten your existing tattoo to make getting a cover up a complete success.
Don't Fall for Budget Lasers
Before you consider booking for laser, ask them if they use Q-switch lasers or picosecond lasers. This question alone could save you lots of time and money.
Learn About the Lasers
You should learn about the lasers before you start your tattoo removal treatments. Most places still use Q-switch lasers that produce light pulses of several nanoseconds. This is a 50 year old technology that has worked reasonably well for many decades. In 2013, laser tattoo removal took a huge technological leap with picosecond lasers. Picosecond is 1/1000 of a nanosecond, so the pico machines fire the lasers up to 1000 times faster than the nano machines.
Pico Laser vs Q- Switch
The pico technology allows the laser to break up the ink in the tattoo into much smaller particles than the Q-switch technology. Your body is then able to absorb these smaller particles more easily, which results in the tattoo removal process being much faster. This means fewer sessions and less money spent.
Laser tattoo removal is today’s top choice for people looking to remove tattoos. To accomplish this we utilize the most advanced pico laser technology available. With this highly sophisticated machine, we can successfully remove all of the most popular tattoo colors. Not only black, but reds, yellows, browns, oranges, and even most blues and greens. Unlike the Q-switch lasers used by most of our competitors, our pico laser uses picosecond lasers which fire the lasers up to 1000 times faster for much more effective results.
Before you begin treatment, you will have a free consultation with our tech. He will explain the process and answer any questions you may have. A customized treatment plan will be made for you to help you obtain the best results.
The duration of your treatment depends on the specifics of your case, but most sessions are about 20 minutes. The laser will pass through the skin and is absorbed by the pigments in the tattoo ink, causing it to break apart into smaller particles. The finest of these can be removed by your body’s natural processes, making the tattoo fade.
The treatment is not painless, but it is not as bad as getting the initial tattoo. Most clients tolerate it well without any type of anesthesia. Topical numbing cream is available if desired to help ease your discomfort.
After treatment, you will be given instructions on caring for the treated area. Make sure to keep the tattoo out of the sun, as your skin will be especially sensitive at this time. You can schedule your next visit six weeks ahead.
