The Process

1. When a tattoo is applied thousands of ink particles are deposited into the skin.

When forgeign particles are introduced into the human body, it’s natural reaction is to absorb and get rid of them. In turn, over time, your tattoo will slowly fade but never completely dissapear on it’s own because the ink paticles are too large.

The laser process helps to break those particles of pigment down into smaller pieces so the body can easily eradicate them.

2. The 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.

3. Multiple 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.

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.

4. Typically after 8 treatments, the tattoo is gone!

The success of tattoo removal is always dependant 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.
