If you are suffering from tattoo regret, laser removal at Calvine Medical Aesthetics is the most effective method to eliminate the ink without scarring over a series of sessions. IPL (intense pulsed light) laser therapy uses a concentrated, bright light to break down the tattoo ink into tiny fragments, which are eventually absorbed into the bloodstream and safely passed out of the body. It is safe for all skin tones and works on virtually all inks.
In general, an older tattoo will take fewer sessions to remove than a new tattoo. Contrary to what you might think, darker inks are actually easier to remove than lighter inks, with black being the easiest to remove. Laser tattoo removal typically does involve some level of mild pain, but many believe that it hurts less than getting the tattoo in the first place, as there is no physical penetration of the skin by a needle. Typically, it will take anywhere from 3-10 treatments to remove a tattoo, depending on color, location, size, type of ink used, the color of your skin and its ability to heal.
If you’re considering removing an outdated and unwanted tattoo, laser tattoo removal is the most effective and permanent way to do so. Over a series of sessions, the concentrated light from the laser works to break up the ink fragments in your skin. With patience, diligence, and steps to take care of yourself, you can once again enjoy beautiful, healthy, tattoo-free skin.
