Conditions Treated With Laser Tattoo Removal

The technology used for tattoo removal can also treat a variety of skin pigmentation issues, including:

  • Birthmarks
  • Vascular pigmentation
  • Age spots
  • Dark marks from scars
  • And more

Am I Eligible For Tattoo Removal?

Most clients are eligible for tattoo removal. Individuals with fair skin and darker tattoos may see better results than those with vibrant ink colors or darker skin. Also, it’s a good idea to avoid tattoo removal procedures if you have a history of abnormal or keloid scarring. 

What To Expect During The Tattoo Removal Process

In general, most tattoo removal sessions last little more than half an hour. However, our best tattoo removal experts may complete your tattoo removal over multiple sessions to protect the skin and allow adequate healing. Speak to your beautician to get a complete picture of what the tattoo removal process will look like for you.

For each session, our beauticians start by cleaning the target area. Any tattoo areas or regions of unwanted skin pigmentation will be cleaned with alcohol and appropriate sanitizing materials to prevent infection and reduce scarring.

Next, beauticians will numb the area, needing no more than a simple topical numbing cream to make the process as pain-free as possible.

Finally, the technician will use slow passes with a high-intensity laser to break up the pigmentation in the target area. To reduce normal burning sensations, our team will use a chilling tool during the process to cool the skin and provide relief.

Don’t worry if you don’t see drastic results after your first session! Tattoo removal results may take two or more sessions before achieving the desired level.
