Laser Tattoo Removal

How does laser tattoo removal work?

Just as the sun is absorbed quickly into dark colors, the light of a laser is absorbed into the ink of a tattoo. There it shatters the ink into microscopic particles that are then absorbed by and broken down by the body. There are several wavelengths of energy that are utilized to treat various colors in a tattoo.

Tattoo Reversal made Safe and Effective

Tattoo removal once meant gambling low odds of success on a high risk of scarring and pain. Tattoos are designed to last forever, but as more and more people seek reversal of these deeply embedded ink deposits, technology too has kept pace with improved methods of safety and efficacy. The most advanced technolog comes in the form of Q-switched Nd:YAG lasers using PhotoAcoustic Technology which safely penetrate the skin and target each tattoo ink color with specific wavelengths, causing tattoos to gradually fade during a course of 5 to 15 treatment sessions.

What to Expect

With the RevLite laser, you’re getting the most advanced technology to safely remove tattoos with maximum success and comfort. As the light energy gently vibrates BeforeAfterAfterAfterBeforeBeforeand shatters the tattoo ink into easily eliminated micro-particles, the short pulses feel similar to snaps of small rubber bands, followed by a warm sensation. A temporary whitening will follow the first teatment; over time, the tattoo particles will fade through the lymphatic system and the skin will return to its natural color. Dark blue, black and red inks offer highest degree of success, followed by orange and purple; green and sky blue may require additional treatments for significant fading. Tattoo treatment ranges from 5 to 15 sessions.
