How are Tattoos Removed?
Traditionally, tattoo removal procedures used to be extremely painful with unpredictable results. But advances in laser technology and patient safety controls now make it possible to permanently clear tattoo ink from the skin comfortably with results that are guaranteed.
Whether your tattoo regret stems from an impulsive decision or from a tattoo that just no longer looks good due to poor quality, we can help at Delta Laser and Skin Care Centre. While there are a variety of makeups and cover up methods for unwanted tattoos, these can become tedious and are not long-term solutions.
What Technologies are Used to Remove Tattoos?
At Delta Laser and Skin Care Centre, we understand that tattoos are comprised of varieties of colors and qualities, and we have laser technology available to effectively remove all types and shades of tattoo ink from the skin:
- Q-Switched laser technology in our laser tattoo removal treatments target the pigment in tattoo ink, utilizing fast pulses of light to destroy the ink particles without causing damage or irritation to surrounding skin. The damaged ink particles are then either eliminated through the skin surface or removed by the body’s white blood cells.
- Dark tattoo colors such as navy blue or black are the easiest to remove with laser, but other colors such as red and yellow often require other laser technologies. During your consultation, our medical team will evaluate your specific tattoo and determine which laser technologies will be required in order to ensure the complete and permanent removal of the ink from your skin.
Multiple sessions may be necessary in order to completely remove the tattoo from your skin. Our medical team has extensive experience with laser tattoo removal and can help you estimate about how long it may take to remove your unwanted tattoo. The skin may have a pink or flushed tone after laser tattoo removal sessions, but this treatment is typically well-tolerated with no major side effects.
