Laser tattoo removal is a simple, non-invasive procedure that involves channeling laser energy to remove permanent tattoos. We use the cutting-edge MedLite laser to zap away the unwanted colors of the tattoo. The darker shades of the tattoo absorb the laser energy, following which the unwanted pigments are broken down, fragmented, and expelled from the body as waste. We customize the wavelength to ensure the tattoo is removed without harming the surrounding skin.
How does laser tattoo removal work?
Laser tattoo removal involves channeling various wavelengths of light energy into the regions with the unwanted tattoos. The laser energy is absorbed by the darker pigments of the tattoo but not the surrounding skin tissues. The light energy breaks the unwanted pigments into smaller particles that are eventually flushed away by your body’s immune response. The darker colors are the easiest to remove, and the lighter colors may take a little longer.
Which device do you use for laser tattoo removal?
Premier Aesthetic Dermatology performs laser tattoo removal using the cutting-edge MedLite C6. This is a multi-wavelength system capable of delivering 585nm, 650nm, and 532nm wavelengths of light energy. Since this device can generate numerous wavelengths, it can be calibrated and personalized according to the various shades and colors in your tattoos. Most laser devices are only effective on black tattoos against light skin, but the MedLite C6 is effective for most shades on all skin types.
