Let us give your skin a new lease on life by scheduling a consultation today.
How Laser Tattoo Removal Works
Certain colors absorb light at different rates and different intensities. Black towels at the beach, for instance, warm up faster than white towels, which reflect some sunlight. Tattoo ink differs from the melanin —a natural pigment that gives hair, eyes, and skin color. Laser tattoo removal relies on this difference to target tattoo pigments while leaving the surrounding skin unharmed.
Tattoo ink is injected into your upper layer of skin (the dermis). Laser tattoo removal works by using focused beams of light from a specialized Q-switched Nd: Yag laser to target one color of ink, breaking up pigment clusters through heat energy. After the pigment is disbanded, your own lymphatic system processes the pigments out of the body naturally, providing you and your skin with a new lease on life.
Laser Tattoo Removal Results
Over the course of several treatments, laser tattoo removal can eliminate unwanted ink nearly anywhere on the body. Larger tattoos will require more treatments and certain pigments (such as red ink) may be more difficult to target, but the treatment is safe for all skin types.
With little to no scarring and permanent results, laser tattoo removal is the most effective method available today for ridding yourself of unwanted ink. Take back your skin at Bentley Skincare & Wellness today.
Laser Tattoo Removal FAQs
Candidates for laser tattoo removal should be in otherwise good health before and after the procedure. Laser tattoo removal relies on your own immune system to break down and process scattered ink. Those with a compromised immune system may not see the best results, but as always, we’ll discuss your individual candidacy with you after learning more about your medical history and expectations.
Laser tattoo removal often relies on picosecond (one trillionth of a second) bursts of powerful laser energy. Though quick, these intense beams may cause discomfort during the procedure. Ultimately, laser tattoo removal has most often been described as similar in discomfort to receiving the tattoo in the first place.
The number of required treatments depends on several factors. Tattoo size, location, pigments, and your natural skin color and sensitivities could make the process shorter or longer. Treatments are separated for safety by an average of six weeks, but most patients achieve their desired results within five to ten treatments.
