Laser Tattoo Removal Procedure

REMOVAL PROCESS:

Did you know that 60 million adults have tattoos? And 15 million of these want it removed? It seemed like a good idea at the time…so you are not the only one!

It seemed like a good idea at the time. But life changes, and the old tattoo just doesn’t fit with your new image or outlook on life.

The LaserYourTat Laser removes tattoo ink with almost no chance of scarring. This laser delivers pulses of light that last for 10 or 25 billionths of a second. This shatters the ink particles, allowing the body’s normal healing mechanism to clear out the smaller fragments.

Tattoo removal requires multiple treatments with at least three to six weeks between treatments. Fading occurs after each treatment and the entire tattoo can be treated each time. More time between treatments allows additional fading and can reduce the total cost. Generally, 3 to 12 treatments are needed, with homemade tattoos usually fading faster than professional tattoos. Fortunately, severe scarring is rare, however temporary tan-discoloration or loss of natural pigment, with long-term lightening of skin color, can also occur. Treatment hurts about as much as getting a tattoo but is over much faster.

Now with the powerful and effective LaserYourTat System, it’s finally possible to remove your tattoo safely with minimizing scar formation. Our LaserYourTat Centers utilize proprietary technology to remove your amateur or professional tattoo safely and effectively. Compared to ALL other systems on the market, this laser simply provides THE BEST results.

The following are some questions most often asked about laser tattoo removal:

HOW DOES IT WORK?

LaserYourTat treatments use your body’s own defense mechanisms to remove the pigment. When your tattoo was applied, your body encapsulated the ink in the skin’s collagen.

The LaserYourTat laser uses multiple wavelengths of laser light energy to break up the large ink pockets into smaller particles. Over a period of weeks, your body will carry off these small particles. The larger particles that remain may require several treatments, but the tattoo gradually fades to just a memory.

IS IT DANGEROUS?

The LaserYourTat Laser has been granted complete clearance by the FDA. The LaserYourTat Laser is preset to safe levels, and our LaserYourTat Staff follow stringent safety precautions at all times.

DOES IT HURT?

Most patients say, “It feels about the same as getting the tattoo,” and and many require no anesthetic at all. The laser pulse feels much like the snap of a rubber band. For those truly sensitive, you may elect to have NumbMD topical anesthetic applied beforehand. Our Staff traces the laser light over the tattoo to begin the lasering process. The lasers do not burn the skin in any way. The lasered skin will have some redness afterwards and a thick moisturizer is placed on the area and covered with a sterile dressing. The Staff will review your Aftercare directions with you thoroughly.

HOW LONG IS A TREATMENT SESSION?

Depending on the size and location of the tattoo, a typical session takes 5 to 15 minutes. This is typically faster than most other places because out LaserYourTat Laser is the most efficient and precise laser on the market. No expense was spared developing our technology so we can offer the best, most effective, and safest treatments on the market today.

ARE THERE ALTERNATIVES TO THESE SYSTEMS?

Yes, but none as effective as the LaserYourTat Tattoo Removal System. Surgical removal  is NOT common and  leaves a permanent scar. Other types of lasers, such as argon or carbon dioxide, physically boil away the skin. Again, this is expensive and leaves a scar. Techniques that use acid or abrasion to remove the tattoo are often painful and will result in scarring. Our LaserYourTat Laser allows for no scarring and is now considered one of THE BEST systems for tattoo removal in the world.

WILL IT REMOVE MY TATTOO COMPLETELY?

That depends on several factors, including the color and depth of the tattoo pigment, as well as your individual response to treatment. While some colors are easier to remove than others, the LaserYourTat Staff utilize multiple wavelenghts of the LaserYourTat Laser System, making it possible to remove all colors, including black, red, orange, yellow, blue, green and purple. Large or particularly thick tattoos, usually applied by a professional tattooist, can require several treatments for successful removal. Re-inked tattoos also require additional treatments because this is like having a double or triple tattoo in one area. Some customers simply want to go over the tattoo with a different one, so it is usually recommended to have 3 or 4 sessions to fade the tattoo enough so your tattoo artist can properly ink the area again.
