Dr Inder uses the latest q-Switch Nd:YAG laser i.e Medlite*C6 laser. It is an excellent choice for tattoo removal because its unique combination of short wavelength light and rapid, high intensity pulses maximizes the destruction of skin pigmentation and tattoo inks.
What should I do before considering the permanent tattoo removal?
You should first schedule a consultation with the docotor who will evaluate your tattoo and advise you on the process. The number of treatments you will need will depend on the age, size, and color(s) of your tattoo. The color of your skin, as well as how deep the tattoo pigment goes, will also affect the removal technique.
How It Works?
Our advanced laser is specifically designed to target tattoo ink, causing the pigment to shatter into small pieces that gradually fade over a series of treatments. Treatments are spaced 4-6 weeks apart. The number of treatments you’ll need depends on a variety of factors, including location, density, colors and skin type.
Typically our estimates range from as few as 3 to 10 or more sessions.
Lasers remove tattoos by breaking up the pigment colors with a high-intensity light beam. Black tattoo pigment absorbs all laser wavelengths, making it the easiest color to treat. Other colors can only be treated by selected lasers based upon the pigment color.
Is it painful?
Most treatments last just a minute or so and feel like a rubber band repeatedly snapping on the skin. While not a great feeling, it’s very tolerable. We also utilize the numbing cream that numbs the skin before, during, and after treatment to minimize any discomfort.
Is there any special care required following the treatment?
It is important to protect the lasered area from the sun for a few weeks post laser. A sunblock or sunscreen of SPF 30 and above can be applied several times a day if the tattoo is on a sun-exposed area.
