Even though a tattoo may appear to be on the surface of the skin, it is not. It is a series of ink deposits within the skin that is meant to last forever. It is common for people to seek out tattoo removal.  Laser tattoo removal is an old practice, but early treatments carried a high risk of scarring. They were painful and were not very effective.  Laser tattoo removal can eliminate tattoos with a high success rate and a low scarring risk. Our Revlite Q-Switched Nd:YAG Laser system is the gold standard in laser tattoo removal. It is highly effective and has a strong proven record for being safe.

How Does the Laser Remove the Tattoo?

Light energy- Lasers target the colors in the tattoo with certain light wavelengths. A variety of wavelengths may be needed for various colors of ink. The Q-Switched lasers use PhotoAcoustic energy to safely penetrate the skin and target the tattoo’s ink. The light energy vibrates the ink and shatters it into tiny micro particles that are eliminated through the body’s natural processes. The laser emits a precise beam of energy with supreme accuracy allowing the technician to trace the tattoo and not damage the surrounding skin.

How Many Laser Treatments are needed to Remove a Tattoo?

It will take multiple sessions. A professional tattoo could take between 6 and 15 treatments, where as an amateur tattoo could require four or five. Treatments are spaced a month or two apart. The overall number of treatments depends on many variables such as the size of the tattoo, the amount and type of ink used, the depth of the ink in the skin, the patient’s skin type, the overall health of the patient and the location of the tattoo.

Will the Tattoo Completely Disappear?

100 % elimination of the ink cannot be promised as individual results will vary.  However the Revlite Q-Switched Nd:YAG Laser is one of the best lasers available for tattoo removal.

Can all Lasers Remove Colored Tattoos?

Most lasers cannot remove all colors. Lower quality lasers have at least two wavelengths to target blue/black inks and red inks. More advanced lasers, such as the laser available at Belleza Med Spa, has four wavelengths and can target most multi-colored tattoos.  Green, yellow and light blue will require additional treatments as these colors are more difficult to remove.

Does Laser Tattoo Removal Hurt?

Yes. The laser’s light energy targets the ink in the skin causing a sensation that some patients compare to being snapped with a hot rubber band or poked with a hot needle, followed by a warming of the skin. Belleza Med Spa will cool the skin prior, during and after the treatment allowing for a more comfortable experience. Patients often say that the treatment wasn’t as bad as they thought it would be.

What Type of Post-Treatment Care is Necessary?

Your provider will apply aloe vera and possibly gauze or plastic wrap after treatment. Follow your provider’s orders for post-treatment recovery in order to ensure great results. The area must be kept clean and allowed to heal prior to your next laser tattoo removal treatment. Your Belleza Med Spa provider will quide you through the process in ensure great results.
