Laser pigmentation and laser removal is a safe and easy way to remove pigments and tattoos. Laser light is calibrated to direct an intense beam of light at the tattoo. The light is calibrated by the laser to be a certain wavelength so that the pigment molecules absorb the laser energy and burst into small fragments. The body’s lymphatic system will then carry away the pigment fragments, which will then be excreted from the body.

Laser light is calibrated to direct an intense beam of light at the tattoo. The light is calibrated by the laser to be a certain wavelength so that the pigment molecules absorb the laser energy and burst into small fragments. The body’s lymphatic system will then carry away the pigment fragments, which will then be excreted from the body.
Each laser treatment destroys and removes the pigment closest to the skin surface. That top layer may take approximately four weeks to be absorbed before the deeper tattoo pigment can be treated. So, laser tattoo removal is done one layer at a time.
Some tattoos will respond only partially, while others will completely disappear. There are many factors involved in the equation: location of tattoo, the depth of the placement, the color of the ink, the health/lifestyle of the patient, and the tattoo removal system. For example, tattoo removal in smokers typically takes more treatments; diabetes also slows the process of removal.
Yes, there is some pain associated when the laser makes contact with the skin. Patients often refer to this as similar to hot cooking grease hitting the skin. Numbing medication is typically applied 15 minutes prior. The good news is that it only lasts as long as the procedure is done (less than one minute). After your tattoo laser removal treatment, you can expect redness, heat, possible blistering, and itching for the next few days. We ask you keep the area covered for about a week.
Depending on the color, type, depth, size of the tattoo, and laser removal system, it may disappear in as little as five treatments. In some cases, complete removal is not desired. The tattoo artist may want the area lightened before recovering with a different image.
Our laser works on all colors of the spectrum, but black, dark blue and red are most successfully removed. Yellow and green are the hardest colors to remove and may never completely resolve. All of the colors will take multiple treatments to achieve the desired result.
It may take as little as 2, but we recommend you work with your tattoo artist to decide the goals for lightening and recovering.
First, we place a numbing lotion on the tattoo then the laser beam rapidly moves across the tattoo. If the tattoo has several colors, the laser is adjusted for each color and we may have to make several passes over the tattoo.
The laser makes a rapid popping sound as the beam fires each time. The entire treatment session is quick, with total treatment time usually taking only 30 to 60 seconds. The short treatment time is fortunate, since each laser burst definitely hurts – patients often say it feels like hot cooking grease is being dripped on the skin.
As soon as the laser stops firing, the pain immediately goes away. Aquaphor is then spread on the site and a dressing is applied. Although you can shower the following day, we want you to keep the site covered with a dressing otherwise. You can expect any/all of the following: swelling, redness, scabbing, light bleeding, blistering and fading.
The cost varies, depending on the removal system and tattoo size. To have a consultation and receive a quote please book an appointment online or Contact Us.
