Although a tattoo looks like a simple painting on the skin,
it’s actually a series of ink deposits placed deep into the skin – designed to
last forever. The reality is that thousands of people decide to remove their tattoos each
year because the designs are no longer relevant to their lifestyle. Lasers are the answer.
Lasers are the safest and most effective way to remove
tattoos. The RevLite is the gold standard tool for this sophisticated procedure, using up to
four different wavelengths to remove multiple colors of tattoo ink.
The RevLite uses PhotoAcoustic energy to safely penetrate the skin and target the tattoo at its core. Each pass of the laser vibrates
and gently shatters the tattoo ink into micro-particles that are eventually eliminated through the body’s natural processes.
Because the laser delivers the energy in a very precise ‘beam’, our technicians can trace the design without damaging the surrounding skin.
Patients say the experience feels similar to the tattoo application itself – a snap of a rubber band followed by a feeling of
warmth. That said, it takes much longer to remove a tattoo than to get a tattoo – about 6 to 15 treatments on average,
depending on the amount of colors, the size of the design and the type of ink. Black tattoos are easier to remove than multi-colored designs –
but all tattoos must be treated with the proper laser.
Our clinicians cool the skin first with cold air. After the first few treatments, you’ll notice
a temporary whitening of the treated area. Over time, the tattoo fades and the skin returns to normal color.
