Are you falling out of love with your tattoo? Maybe you got your tattoo at a young age and it doesn’t express your personality anymore, or maybe you just don’t like how it looks. No matter the reason, if you wish to remove your tattoo, laser tattoo removal can get the job done.
About Tattoo Removal
At our office, we use the Enlighten™ by Cutera, which is the most advanced tattoo laser on the market today. It is a very versatile laser, with unique strengths to address different needs. In the past, multiple lasers were needed to remove multiple colors, but not anymore! This laser can remove various colors of ink from a single tattoo.
Enlighten™ also has a wide spot-size range, making it easier to treat both small and large tattoos very quickly. It can also remove any tattoo faster than any other laser on the market today.
Laser tattoo removal works by directing quick, short laser pulses to the targeted ink. This shatters the ink into small particles which are then naturally removed from the body. Treatment usually takes about 20 minutes to complete, and multiple treatments are required 6-8 weeks apart to fully remove a tattoo.
What to Expect After Treatment
After your laser tattoo removal treatment, the treatment area will be red, and small blisters will appear after 48 hours. These should resolve within 1-2 weeks. Be sure to keep the area covered and out of the sun, and let any blisters resolve on their own. Be sure to follow your provider’s post-treatment instructions for best results.
