Condition at a Glance

Can my tattoo be removed?
Painting of the human body goes back to the beginning of recorded history, and removal of unwanted tattoos has probably been around that long as well. The variety of techniques used to apply tattoos is staggering; the source of the ink, where on the body the tattoo is applied, colors and designs used, even the depth into the skin can vary dramatically. A complimentary appointment with our experienced consultants will ensure your best treatment results.

How Do I Treat This?
Medical lasers use a beam of light to significantly lighten or completely remove your tattoo. When the ink particles absorb the light from the laser, they are broken up into fragments and then absorbed through your body’s immune system.

The Lutronics Q-Switched Laser, with its ability to effectively clear all tattoo pigment colors, has become the gold standard treatment for all colors of tattoo removal. As the laser attacks the tattoo, a light grey "frosting" appears on the tattoo, a signal that the appropriate energy was applied and the removal process will begin.

What else do I need to know?
Individuals receiving treatment should always wear sunblock if going into the sun to protect the treated area. Your consultant can assist you in choosing an effective block that does not show and is easy to wear.

"Spectra is clearly the laser of choice for tattoos. Hands down, it is the best laser system when it comes to tattoo removal.”
