Laser Tattoo Removal

Laser Tattoo Removal Procedure

The human body’s natural reaction is to absorb when forgeign particles are introduced into it and get rid of them over time. When a tattoo is applied thousands of ink particles are deposited into the skin. Over time, your tattoo will slowly fade but never completely disappear on its own because the ink particles are too large.

The Laser tattoo removal process helps to break those particles of pigment down into smaller pieces so the body can easily eradicate them. The ink particles absorb the laser energy, heat up, and shatter into smaller particles.

During a tattoo removal procedure, laser light is applied to the tattooed area of the skin. This light is selectively absorbed by the tattoo ink particles, leaving the surrounding skin tissue and chromophores unharmed.

Tattoo Removal Superior Technology

We’re proud to say we use the Quanta Q-Plus C-EVO Laser System, which is capable of removing both black and multi-coloured tattoo ink. The advanced tattoo removal technology of Quanta Q-Plus C Evo’s 3 wavelength system delivers very short and concentrated pulses of energy at different wavelengths to target all colours at different depths of the skin.

Once the ink particles have started to break down, your body’s immune system will get to work and the tattoo will begin to fade.

Tattoo Removal Technique

Multiple tattoo removal treatments are typically needed to completely remove a tattoo as ink is layered into the skin. Each treatment targets a deeper layer of ink that was previously hidden by the earlier layer.

Keep in mind, your tattoo removal treatments must be spaced a minimum of 8 weeks apart. This time allows healing to take place and for the absorption and eradication of ink particles. The good news is, typically after 8 treatments your tattoo is gone!

The success of tattoo removal procedures is always dependent on not just the quality of the treatment, but how well the client has followed all after-care steps, keeping the tattoo free from the sun and avoiding smoking. Typically after 8 treatments, the tattoo is gone!
