What is Tattoo Removal?
Tattoo removal is one of the most quickly growing aesthetic treatments available today, probably because the number of people with tattoos that they’d like to remove is higher today than it ever has been. Because we don’t want our patients to live with tattoos that no longer feel like “them,” our practice is proud to offer patients tattoo removal with the Harmony XL laser. This laser treatment is one of the most reliable ways to remove tattoos of all colors and sizes. It is particularly good at removing darker tattoos that are black, blue, or green.
All of our practice’s laser tattoo removal procedures are administered by our licensed Master Aesthetician, Deanna Bain. Deanna has been working in the field of aesthetics for 14 years, so you take comfort knowing your treatment is being administered by a licensed and experienced professional.
How Does it Work?
Tattoos are created by injecting colored pigments into the skin using specialized needles. During a laser tattoo removal treatment, pulses of laser energy are directed at and absorbed by these pigments. As these pigments absorb the laser energy, they begin to break up and disperse. In the weeks following each treatment session, macrophages within the body remove the rest of the pigmentation from the body.
What can I Expect from this Treatment?
The amount of time that each tattoo removal treatment takes depends on the size and color of the tattoo being removed. Regardless of these factors, treatment is fairly uncomfortable. Patients liken the sensation of this treatment to specks of bacon grease or a thin rubber band hitting their skin.
Several treatments are necessary to remove a tattoo completely. While laser tattoo removal techniques have become more and more sophisticated and effective over time, some tattoos are still not able to be removed completely with this treatment.
