How does laser tattoo removal work?

Lasers produce short pulses of intense light that pass through the top layers of the skin and are selectively absorbed by the tattoo ink.  This laser energy causes the large tattoo ink molecules to break into smaller "bite-sized" particles--which can then be removed by the body's immune system.

How long does a treatment take?

Most laser tattoo removal treatments take 30-60 minutes (or less)---depending on the size of the tattoo(s).  Larger tattoos will take longer.  Clients choosing the R20 laser method will have longer office visits.  More information about R-20 BELOW... 

Does laser tattoo removal hurt?

Most clients tolerate laser tattoo removal treatments very well.

Is laser tattoo removal safe?

Yes.  Researchers have determined which wavelengths of light to use and how to deliver the laser's output to best remove tattoo ink---without damaging the surrounding skin.  It is imperative that clients AVOID 'sun-tanning' the skin (in and around the tattoo site) in any manner for a minimum of 3-4 weeks prior to your laser session.


What kind of laser(s) are used to remove tattoos?

Radiance Laser & Skin Care Centers has multiple lasers and wavelengths for all your tattoo removal needs.  We offer the following wavelenghts: 532 nm, 755 nm, 1064 nm and 1320 nm.  In addition, we offer traditional Q-switch AND NEW Picosecond laser technologies.  This allows us to treat virtually all tattoo ink colors!


How many laser tattoo removal treatments will I need?

Tattoo fading begins immediately after your first laser session.  The total number of visits required for satisfactory fading/removal varies with several factors: *ink chemistry, *ink color, *ink depth and *individual immune response.  Most folks should expect to need 4-8 separate treatments over time.  Laser tattoo removal treatments are generally scheduled 4-8 weeks apart---depending on the treatment number and ongoing results.

Why do some tattoos take longer to treat?

There are several individual factors that affect how your tattoo responds to laser treatments.  They include:

    > Individual immune system response

    > Skin color

    > Ink chemistry

    > Colors of tattoo ink

    > Depth of tattoo

How do I prepare for a laser tattoo removal treatment?

Prior to your laser tattoo removal session(s): Avoid sun-exposure in the treatment area for a minimum of  3-4 weeks prior to treatment. Avoid use of sunless tanning creams for 7 days prior to treatment. Avoid use of tattoo fading creams for 4-6 weeks prior to laser treatment.  Tell your laser practitioner about medications/supplements that you are currently taking OR have taken in the last 6 months.


Does laser tattoo removal have side effects?

The risk of permanent side effects after laser tattoo removal treatments is small.  We have successfully treated hundreds, if not thousands, of clients without incident.  However, as with most cosmetic laser treatments, there is some risk of scarring and change in skin color after laser tattoo removal treatments.  Make certain to inform your laser practitioner about your recent history of sun exposure and medication use in order to reduce the risk of post-treatment side effects.


Am I a candidate for Laser Tattoo Removal?

If you are in good health (no serious health concerns), have realistic expectations and you do NOT have a history of 'keloid scarring' in your family or personal history, you are likely a good candidate for Laser Tattoo Removal.


Make certain to tell your laser practitioner about....

Recent sun exposure and tanning history...AS WELL AS...recent medication history----as these things can affect the safety of how your skin responds to the laser treatments.
