Once considered to be permanent, tattoos are now reversible when treated with the right lasers. At VITAHL, our lasers use the most advanced method on the market, PicoSecond technology. Whether you’re looking to rid yourself of the tattoo or lighten it for a cover up, we have the ability to effectively remove a tattoo of all colors with laser tattoo removal.
While every tattoo can respond differently to treatment, with PicoSecond lasers, tattoo removal can be completed in fewer treatments than what was seen with the older, less powerful lasers. To completely remove a tattoo a patient should expect to do five to seven treatments. When we lighten a tattoo in preparation for a cover up, time is considerably less as fewer visits are required. Some of the things that may be taken into consideration when determining how long it will take to get rid of your tattoo include the location of the tattoo, the color of the ink, the amount of ink that was used, and any pre-existing scarring. White is the only tattoo color that cannot be treated.
While this may sound like a mountain of time, you’ll still see results throughout the course of the treatments. Why does it take so long? Well, during your appointments we will breakdown the ink particles into smaller particles that are easily absorbed by the body. We recommend a minimum of 8 weeks between laser tattoo removal treatments to allow the body to get rid of the ink to make the most of each treatment. The educated staff at VITAHL can assess your tattoo and create a customized treatment plan for you so you will know exactly what to expect.
Worried about the pain? Most patients say it is a lot less painful than getting the tattoo itself. We can provide a topical numbing agent that will help to lessen the pain during the treatment. But, no pain no gain, right?
