Can any type of tattoo be treated successfully?
We can provide effective laser treatment to remove most tattoos. Tattoos do vary greatly in size, color and density and some respond more easily to treatment than others. Some colors are very difficult to treat and these include white, yellow, orange, some red and green tattoos containing fluorescent or acrylic dyes. But with our new MedLite C6 Laser, these difficult colors are more easily treated than with older tattoo removal machines.
How many sessions will I require?
Tattoos generally require 8-10 treatments performed at regular intervals. To ensure optimum success, an interval of 4-6 weeks is normal between treatment sessions. Although the exact number of sessions required depends on a number of factors, including the size, color, depth of ink and type of tattoo.
Is the treatment painful?
The treatment can be uncomfortable; usually a ‘stinging’ sensation may be felt rather like an elastic band being snapped against the skin. If required however, a local anesthetic cream may be applied to sensitive areas or simply to help you feel more relaxed. In fact getting a tattoo is usually more painful than getting it removed with the laser.
How dose it work?
The Laser works by targeting the unwanted tattoo and exposing it to a beam of intense laser light, delivered in pulses. Each pulse of light disintegrates the dye, breaking it up into manageable particles that can be eliminated naturally by the body's filtration system. The tattoo will not disappear. Rather, it typically fades over a period of time following each session.
Will there be any scarring?
Unlike other treatment methods, with laser treatments the surface of the skin is neither cut nor burned, therefore there is very little risk of scarring. However, some loss of pigment (hypo-pigmentation) or excess pigment (hyper-pigmentation) of the treated area may be evident after completion of a course of treatment. This will normally be expected to fade after 6 months after which, normal skin coloring and texture should be regenerated. A small number of people may find these changes permanent.
