Unwanted tattoos can leave you feeling self-conscious, frustrated, and angry. Luckily, with today's advanced laser technologies, what was once permanent can now in fewer treatments, faster recovery, and better results than ever.
Advanced laser technology delivers concentrated light pulses into the tattoo ink, dispersing the pigment into small molecules, which are then absorbed by the body. The result is less unwanted pigmentation and smoother, clearer-looking skin
Results may vary depending on the ink colors used in the tattoo. Typically, red inks and darker colors respond well to laser treatment. Other colors may be difficult to remove, although there will still be a noticeable improvement.
At Skin & Tonic, we have different lasers, each designed to target specific ink colors.
Laser tattoo removal is a permanent solution to dramatically reduce and lighten unwanted tattoos.
Yes, laser tattoo removal is a safe and effective solution to reduce the appearance and, in some cases, entirely remove tattoos. Our Skin & Tonic aestheticians have completed comprehensive training to ensure safety and effectiveness when removing tattoos with a laser.
At your consultation, an experienced Skin & Tonic aesthetician will assess the quantity, quality, color, and depth of pigment of your tattoo(s). We will perform a patch test on your tattooed skin to determine your reactions to laser treatments. Before your procedure begins, a topical anesthetic will be applied to the treatment area to make you more comfortable. The Tattoo Removal Laser uses short bursts of light in a controlled area to disband the ink pigments into small particles.
Treatment numbers vary depending on the tattoo ink’s concentration, depth, and quality. On average, professional tattoo art can take six to eight treatments to dissolve. Each treatment is spaced four to six weeks apart. Amateur tattoos generally need three to four laser treatments. For more information or to request a consultation, contact Skin & Tonic today.
Laser tattoo removal is a permanent solution to significantly or entirely remove undesirable tattoos. Some tattoos can be substantially decreased in size and appearance. In contrast, others can be removed entirely due to certain factors like color, location on the body, and the age of the tattoo.
No, there is no downtime for laser tattoo removal. Yet, redness is expected along with scabbing following your tattoo removal treatment. Redness and scabbing are a part of the removal process. Do not pick at the scabs; protect the area from the sun with UV-protective clothing. Some itchiness and discomfort are expected, like a developing scab on a wound.
