Pigment, Meet PicoSecond Laser
Unparalleled Results with Laser Tattoo Removal
In our clinic, our PicoSecond laser harnesses the most advanced technology of its kind. In one trillionth of a second, the laser hits the targeted ink and shatters it into a dust-like fragment.
What's more, our laser offers variable spot sizes, allowing us greater accuracy and in turn, less incidental damage to surrounding skin and less chance for scarring.
Where Your Immune System Comes In
Fascinatingly, your immune system plays a major role in the elimination of tattoo ink and/or pigment. Many do not know the role that ink particles play in the permanency of tattoos: they are too large to be absorbed and excreted by the body!
Much like our hair removal laser targets the darker pigment in the hair follicles, the pulsed laser beams of light energy of our tattoo removal laser target the darker ink particles. The ink are then heated up and broken apart into tiny particles - which are much more easily eliminated by the body.
Some Immunity Tips to Get the Most Out of Your Tattoo Removal Sessions
Bottom line: the healthier you are, the better your immune system and the better that you will respond to laser tattoo removal. To ensure its optimal functioning (and that you gain the most out of your sessions), here are some basic tips:
Drink plenty of water each and every day;
Maintain a balanced diet;
Ensure normal and regular bowel movements;
Avoid smoking and excessive alcohol consumption.
When It Comes to Tattoos, the Saying Goes: "My Body is My Journal, My Tattoos Are My Story." Laser Tattoo Removal Makes it Possible for that Story to Evolve.
What to Expect from Your Consultation
Much like a fingerprint, no two tattoos are exactly alike. Along with that, a number of additional factors can play into the tattoo type, namely:
The type of ink used;
For these reasons, a consultation is essential, to determine both your tattoo removal goals and our best course of action to achieve those goals. Moreover, at your consult visit, your practitioner will explain the steps to take ahead of your treatment, to ensure your best possible results.
What to Expect from Your Session
The length of a tattoo removal session will be based upon the size, location, and complexity of the tattoo. Immediately following your session, the area treated will show a white "frosting" of the skin and will feel similar to a sunburn. This should subside in about 20 minutes.
What to Expect from Your Treatment Plan
As a general rule of thumb, the closer to your heart, the quicker the ink will be cleared from your body. That said, we typically suggest a series of 10 treatments, spaced 4-8 weeks apart, depending on the tattoo, to remove the ink from your tattoo completely.

The Most Common Questions We Get Asked: Does it Hurt?
To be brief, the answer is yes. We stand behind the motto: "It's painful, but possible." Much like getting your tattoo itself, removing it is not a pain-free process. The degree of discomfort will depend on your tolerance, the tattoo's size, and the area treated (i.e. thinner areas of skin or bonier spots). With some help from both our numbing cream and our specialized cooling device, most consider it quite manageable. Plus, the results are so worth it!
In the days and hours following your tattoo removal session, you may experience some pinpoint bleeding, blistering, crusting, and/or scabbing - this is completely normal. To ensure optimal healing, here are some of our recommendations:
On the day of your appointment, consider opting for loose and soft clothing, to limit discomfort to the area treated;
Cleanse the areas daily with lukewarm water and a mild soap only;
Do not rub the area dry - pat it gently, instead;
Resist picking at the area - it will heal on its own;
Apply a thick emollient to the area, such as Aquaphor 2-3 times per day;
Consider taking over-the-counter pain relief, such as Tylenol;
Soothe the area with cold gel packs - but do not apply the cold directly to the skin (this could cause an adverse reaction to the peeling or blistering area);
Avoid any and all U/V exposure to the area, while still applying a minimum SPF-50 sunblock every 2 hours upon any sun exposure;
Avoid strenuous sports or exercise to limit further damage to the treated skin;
Avoid swimming pools, hot tubs, and saunas, to limit chemical exposure and bacteria to the area until it is fully healed.
