Laser Tattoo Removal
Mystique Medical Spa specializes in laser tattoo removal. If you are considering tattoo removal call our office for a no cost consultation where we can determine the number of treatments based on the location, size, and color of the tattoo.
How does laser tattoo removal work?
Using an advanced laser, light impulses target the ink in the tattoo, breaking the ink into microscopic pieces that are absorbed by the immune system. Your skin is not affected by this treatment. In most cases, the darker the ink the more likely it is to completely remove the tattoo. Lightly colors such as yellow and green, are more difficult to remove, but the laser technology will reduce the color and significantly fade the tattoo.
Is laser tattoo removal painful?
The sensation is similar to snap of a rubber band and level of discomfort depends on the location of the tattoo. Ice or anesthetic cream can be applied prior to treatment.
How many treatments does laser tattoo removal take?
The number of treatments depends on the amount of ink, the size of the tattoo and location of the tattoo. Generally speaking, laser tattoo removal takes about 6 treatments. The best way to proceed is to schedule a no cost consultation so we can recommend the proper number of treatments for your situation.
