For whatever reason, you may decide to remove a tattoo from your body. This is far more common than you might think, with many patients requesting laser tattoo removal at Rejuve Med-Spa. Laser tattoo removal is the only way to effectively remove a permanent tattoo from your body. Naturally, it utilizes laser technology, but how exactly does it work?
About Laser Tattoo Removal Technology
When you get a tattoo, the ink is injected deep below the upper layer of your skin. Most people aren’t aware of this, but that’s how the ink stays for a lifetime. The only way to remove this ink is by using a laser. Rejuve Med Spa uses the Q-Plus C laser, which is the best-in-class and yields the most impressive results.
How does laser tattoo removal work? Our laser emits different wavelengths to target specific pigments. From here, laser energy is distributed across the treatment area with the innovative Optibeam Technology. In doing so, it ensures that the entire tattoo is covered and treated. The laser will break the ink down into minute particles, which the body can absorb via the lymphatic system. From here, these particles are removed from your body with other lymphatic waste. That is effectively how laser tattoo removal works, but you will need to come in for multiple sessions.
Laser tattoo removal can take anywhere between 2-15 sessions depending on the tattoo. Some ink isn’t as deep as others, meaning it’s easier to remove. Also, take into account the size of the tattoo – bigger pieces need more sessions to remove them completely. Don’t worry, you are in safe hands as we have over 15 years of experience in this line of work.
Benefits of Laser Tattoo Removal
The obvious benefit of laser tattoo removal is that it gets rid of any unwanted tattoos. Everyone makes mistakes, so it seems unfair to have a mistake etched on your body for life. Especially if the tattoo causes you some emotional discomfort, reminding you of something or someone from the past. With laser tattoo removal, you have a chance to wipe the slate clean and remove any tattoos that cause distress.
It is also the best way of seeing fast and effective results. While you will need multiple treatments spaced out over a few weeks, there are no alternatives that work quicker. The results of our laser tattoo removal are incredible, giving you clear skin that barely shows any signs of once having a tattoo.
Am I a Candidate for Laser Tattoo Removal?
Laser tattoo removal is not recommended for everyone with a tattoo that they want gone. If you have recently undergone chemotherapy or take immunosuppression medication, you will struggle to heal from each treatment. Therefore, it is not a good option for candidates falling into these categories.
Other than that, you may not enjoy the process of laser tattoo removal as it may hurt. If you have good pain tolerance, then there’s no reason you won’t be able to handle the treatment. A topical numbing cream can be applied as requested. Rest assured we do everything in our power to minimize the discomfort during treatments.
