Effective treatment for dark tattoo inks! Do you have a tattoo you’d rather forget? Get rid of it at Vixen Aesthetics!
With the overwhelming popularity of tattoos over the last ten years, the market for effective removal has exploded. Tattoos are created by injecting colored pigment into small deep holes made in the skin. Regardless of whether a tattoo artist or an untrained individual injects the pigment, the marks or designs are relatively permanent. When people subsequently want their tattoos removed, most physicians today consider laser surgery one of the best methods. The Q-switched Nd:YAG is the most frequently used laser for tattoo removal. During treatment, pulses of light from the laser are directed onto the tattoo, breaking up the tattoo pigment. Over the next several weeks the body’s macrophages remove the treated pigmented areas. With the Q-switched Nd: YAG laser available on the Harmony®XL laser system, you can effectively treat dark tattoo inks, specifically black (which accounts for more than half of all tattoos), blue and green. Patients should expect to come back for several treatments to achieve expected results.
Our laser is used exclusively for tattoo removal – making it the very best laser to use for your procedure. We can remove a wide range of colors in tattoos and permanent makeup. Our laser uses two separate wavelengths of light to remove darker (black, purple, blue, brown) and lighter (red, green, yellow, orange) tattoo pigment. The laser needs only a fraction of a second to break down the pigment allowing your treatment to be completed in only a short time. Tattoo removal lasers do not penetrate the deeper layers of skin, making scarring very rare and enabling quick healing.
An average tattoo takes 3 to 10 treatments to remove completely. The number of treatments depends on the age, color, quality of ink, and technique used to create the tattoo (professional vs. homemade).
