A tattoo that you love at 18 might not have the same effect after 20 years or so — and that’s okay. Master aesthetician and laser tattoo removal specialist Saejah Tapp can remove your tattoo in as little as three sessions at Allure Medical in Tucson, Arizona. Laser tattoo removal is a safe, effective way to get rid of an unwanted tattoo. To schedule a tattoo removal appointment with Allure Medical, call or book a visit online.
Laser tattoo removal is a non-surgical treatment that breaks down the pigment in unwanted tattoos with a high-intensity light beam. Over time, the body absorbs the pigment and eliminates it through the lymphatic system.
Allure Medical uses the PICO Genesis™ enlighten® laser to gently and effectively remove your tattoo without incisions or blood.
The PICO Genesis™ enlighten is the latest and most cutting-edge device in laser technology. While previous technology, such as the Q-Switch laser, was effective at removing tattoos, but it also had a number of disadvantages, such as scarring and higher cost.
Thanks to pico technology — which delivers greater laser energy at an incredible speed — and ultra-short pulses, the enlighten laser is more effective than previous technology and results in shorter treatment times.
While laser tattoo removal should not feel unbearable, it does typically involve some pain or discomfort. Most clients agree that tattoo removal feels fairly comparable to having it applied in the first place.
Laser tattoo removal rarely leaves scars, but you should tell your Allure Medical aesthetician if you’re skin is prone to keloids. To avoid scarring, it’s important to follow your aesthetician’s aftercare instructions thoroughly.
Unfortunately, laser tattoo removal does not treat existing scars. If you already have a scar from your tattoo, you can expect it to remain after your tattoo is removed.
How long it takes to remove your tattoo depends on a number of factors, most notably the color of your tattoo. Black ink comes out faster than any other type of ink, while light-colored tattoos take at least three to eight sessions. Dark tattoos can take anywhere from six to 15 treatments to remove.
Because you must space out these treatments, laser tattoo removal often takes up to one year in many cases.
Laser tattoo removal is a highly effective noninvasive treatment that eliminates pigment from your skin to get rid of unwanted tattoos without damaging the skin. To schedule a visit with Allure Medical, call the office or book an appointment online today.
