Understanding Laser Tattoo Removal


Are you wondering how something ‘permanent’ can be removed? Whether it was a drunken mistake or an ex’s name, laser tattoo removal can help you forget the worst of mistakes and the most prominent of tattoos.


That said, if you’ve made a poor decision in the past regarding a tattoo, then we understand that the next move you make you want to make with extreme caution. So, we thought we’d tell you everything you need to know about laser hair removal so you can go about your next appointment with confidence.


How Does Tattoo Removal Work?


Did you know that tattoos actually begin to fade over time as the body’s immune system fights to remove the ink particles as they’re seen as a foreign substance?


Laser tattoo removal is a safe and effective way of permanently removing a tattoo, using Q-switched Passive Laser Technology. While some methods such as over-the-counter creams and robust surgery can result in scarring and infection, the Q-switched Passive Laser is the only technology that is able to penetrate down to the dermis and shatter tattoo ink without causing damage to the surrounding skin tissue.


All other methods are either not capable of reaching and destroying the ink, or they cause too much damage to the skin resulting in scarring.


How Effective is Laser Tattoo Removal and Does it Hurt?


Laser tattoo removal is the most effective way to get rid of any unwanted tattoos. Simply put, it’s safe, non-invasive, and almost completely painless, leaving your skin clear and out of harm’s way.


Does it hurt? Good question. While we can’t say that it’s 100% pain free, what we can say is that it’s not even close to the pain and discomfort one must endure when getting a tattoo in the first place. Most clients describe the procedure as a slight stinging-like pain; however, a cooling method is used to relive any discomfort felt throughout the treatment.


Much like a tattoo, the healing process may also involve some discomfort, but nothing substantial or major.
