Laser Tattoo Removal

Laser tattoo removal works by targeting and eliminating spots where tattoo ink is found.  The effectiveness of the laser depends on the age, location, depth and type of tattoo or spot, as well as the composition of the spot.  The Alex TriVantage laser tattoo removal technology selectively treats the tattoos while leaving surrounding skin undamaged, making it safer than non-laser options. The tattoo will not disappear. Rather, the tattoo typically fades over a period of time following each session.

TREATMENT AREAS:

Laser tattoo removal can be done on most areas of the body.

 

RECOMMENDED NUMBER OF TREATMENTS:

Recommended number of sessions required depends on a number of factors, including the size, color, depth of ink and type of tattoo. On average a series of 3-5 treatments is recommended for optimal results, spaced 6-8 weeks apart.

 

PRIOR TO YOUR TREATMENT:

  • Avoid sun exposure before and during any stages of treatment for a minimum of 2 weeks.

 

DURING YOUR TREATMENT:

  • A topical numbing cream will be applied prior to their treatment to try and numb the skin. The laser emits extremely quick pulses of light energy onto your unwanted tattoo. The ink particles in your skin will absorb the light energy, causing them to shatter into tiny fragments. After the ink is broken into the smaller fragments, your body is able to remove the ink naturally and at a quicker pace.

 

AFTER YOUR TREATMENT:

  • You may experience swelling and possibly blistering or bleeding.
  • It is very important to keep the treated area as clean as possible by washing and using an antibiotic cream for several days to promote healing.
  • You must also keep the area covered with a clean, sterile bandage for about one week following treatment until the skin heals.
