The laser used in laser tattoo removal applies energy to your tattoo, breaking up the pigment in your skin. Over time, your body carries away these pigmented pieces and flushes them from your system.
Laser tattoo removal is highly effective but often takes many treatments over a long period of time. You may see little to no change after the first treatment, but stick with the process. Achieving complete tattoo removal requires both commitment to the process and patience.
Yes, laser tattoo removal is safe for all skin types. In some cases, temporary hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation may occur, but these conditions generally correct themselves.
No. The doctors at Sky and Sea Spa use laser tattoo removal to target tattoos of any age and color. In rare cases, a reaction to the laser can occur that may make it unsafe to continue treatments.
The number of sessions required varies from one patient to the next for a number of reasons. The color of your ink and the size, age, quality, and location of your tattoo all play a role.
Because your bloodstream carries away the pigmented pieces, tattoos near your heart generally require fewer treatments. Likewise, older tattoos and poor quality tattoos (those not done by a professional tattoo artist, for example) may be easier to remove. Some tattoos can be completely gone in as few as three sessions while others may require dozens of sessions over the course of a year or more.
Yes, laser tattoo removal is highly precise, making it the right choice for partial tattoo removal. You can have a name removed from a ribbon or even intricate shading removed without removing the entire tattoo. You can also have your tattoo lightened but not removed altogether; this is often done in preparation for a cover-up tattoo.
You can expect to feel a light snapping — similar to the snap of a rubber band against your skin. Because the treatment can be performed rather quickly (sometimes in just a few short minutes), most patients tolerate the sensation well.
