What is Laser Tattoo Removal?
Independent research shows that laser tattoo removal is the safest and quickest treatment available. It is also the least likely to damage your skin. In fact, some say it’s less painful than getting a tattoo.
Lasers for tattoo removal are highly specialized. A tattoo laser is designed specifically to penetrate deeply enough to attack the color particles of the ink, but not so deeply as to create permanent tissue damage or other residual reminders of the tattoo you are trying to remove. The type and quality of the laser determines the time needed for each treatment and how many treatments are needed to complete the process. Our office uses a high-quality laser and offers a more efficient and less-time consuming removal.
We offer complimentary consultations with our Nurse Practitioner who will go over cost and treatment duration customized to your skin type and tattoo.
Tattoo Removal Procedure
Our Registered Nurse, Margaret Cadavero uses a specifically designed laser (Q-switched Nd: YAG) that targets the ink within the tattoo. These exclusive state-of-the-art laser removes tattoos by breaking up the pigment of the tattoo with a high-intensity light beam. The body then slowly breaks down and absorbs the pigment.
While many tattoos appear significantly lighter after a few treatments, several visits are usually required to completely remove your tattoo. Tattoos fade after each treatment as the laser breaks down and removes the ink. Over the course of a short series of sessions, the targeted tattoo will gradually fade. Once the tattoo has been successfully removed the result is permanent.
