Erase Unwanted Ink from Your Skin

Laser tattoo removal is a highly effective method for erasing unwanted tattoos from the skin. It involves using specialized lasers, such as the Candela Picoway, to break down the tattoo ink particles into tiny fragments. These fragments are gradually eliminated by the body’s natural processes. The result is a fading and eventual complete removal of the tattoo, leaving behind clearer, ink-free skin. We use the Picoway for its precision and ability to target specific colors.

Reasons to Consider Laser Tattoo Removal:

  • Tattoo no longer aligns with personal style or beliefs
  • Employment or professional requirements
  • Faded or distorted tattoo due to aging
  • Unwanted tattoo due to a past relationship
  • The desire for a clean canvas for new ink
  • Embarrassment or social discomfort
  • Regret over impulsive or poorly executed tattoos
  • Skin irritation or allergies caused by tattoo ink
  • Aesthetic improvement or modification

How Laser Tattoo Removal Works

Laser tattoo removal with the Picoway device utilizes ultra-short pulses of laser light, typically in the picosecond range (one trillionth of a second). These incredibly brief pulses create a powerful photomechanical effect that shatters tattoo ink into minuscule fragments.

This occurs because the energy delivered by the laser is absorbed by the tattoo pigment, causing it to vibrate and break apart. The body’s immune system can then naturally clear these tiny ink particles, gradually fading and ultimately removing the tattoo from the skin.

Benefits of Laser Tattoo Removal:

  • Highly effective at fading or completely removing tattoos
  • Precision targeting of specific ink colors
  • Non-invasive procedure with minimal risks of scarring
  • Customizable treatment plans to suit individual needs
  • Fast and efficient, with relatively short treatment sessions
  • Suitable for all skin types and ink colors
  • No need for surgical intervention or anesthesia
  • Reduced risk of infection compared to tattoo excision
  • Safe and trusted technology used by experienced professionals

The Laser Tattoo Removal Session

During your session, a trained technician will cleanse the treatment area and provide you with protective eyewear. The Candela Picoway picosecond laser will be calibrated to target your specific tattoo. As the laser pulses are administered, you may feel a sensation similar to rubber band snaps, and cold air or a topical numbing cream can help minimize discomfort.

The process typically lasts a few minutes to an hour, depending on the tattoo’s size and complexity. You’ll then receive aftercare instructions to ensure optimal healing.

Side Effects & Recovery

After laser tattoo removal, it’s common to experience side effects like redness, swelling, and mild discomfort, which typically subside within a few days. Bruising and blistering may also occur but are less common. It’s essential to follow post-treatment instructions, including keeping the area clean, avoiding sun exposure, and applying recommended creams.

Expected Results

Visible results may begin to appear after just a few sessions, typically spaced several weeks apart. The number of sessions required varies depending on factors like tattoo size, ink colors, and individual skin characteristics. While significant fading can often be observed within the first few sessions, complete removal may take several months to a year.
