Can Laser Completely Remove Unwanted Tattoos

Are you unhappy with the look of a certain tattoo? Sometimes, a design may not turn out the way we had expected, or we may have simply changed our minds about having the tattoo at all. Despite the popular saying that a tattoo is forever, laser tattoo removal is a highly effective method for removing unwanted tattoos – as long as powerful, high quality laser technology is used.

With the right technology and highly personalised treatments, you can accurately remove both small and large sized tattoos of any shape or colour, or even particularly remove specific details of a tattoo. If laser tattoo removal sounds like a treatment option you would be interested in, read on to have your questions about the treatment answered.

How does laser tattoo removal work

Laser tattoo removal works by breaking down the pigment in the tattoo using laser energy. The laser emits short pulses of high-intensity light that pass through the outer layers of the skin and are absorbed by the tattoo pigment. This causes the pigment to break down into smaller particles, which are then naturally removed by the body’s immune system.

At Begone Skin & Body, we use the state-of-the-art PicoWay laser from Candela to achieve the best results possible. PicoWay uses ultra short pulse times and targeted wavelengths, which achieves effective results faster, more comfortably and with less risks than other devices.

How many sessions of laser does it take to remove a tattoo

Laser tattoo removal is typically performed in a series of sessions, with enough time in-between each treatment to allow the body to remove the broken-down pigment and allow time for the skin to heal. The number of sessions required will depend on several factors, including the size, colour, and location of the tattoo, as well as the age of the tattoo.

Thankfully, the advanced PicoWay can remove even typically difficult colours, such as green and blue, as well as tattoos of any sizes and shapes. To find out how many sessions you will need, according to your individual skin type and the details of your unique tattoo, you will need a consultation with us to create a personalised treatment plan.

What is the hardest colour tattoo to remove

Darker coloured tattoos tend to respond better to laser treatments than lighter coloured tattoos, and smaller tattoos are typically easier to remove than larger ones. The location of the tattoo and the patient’s skin type can also impact the extent of removal, as certain areas of the body may be more resistant to laser treatments than others. However, thanks to the highly advanced abilities of PicoWay, we can remove even lighter coloured tattoos. Certain colours may be harder to remove, but they can still be efficiently removed with the right number of treatments.

The PicoWay laser is a cutting-edge laser technology developed by Candela, a leading company in the field of medical lasers. In addition to its superior tattoo removal capabilities, the PicoWay laser can also be used to treat other skin concerns, such as hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and age spots. The laser’s short pulses can also stimulate collagen production, leading to improved skin texture and a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.

What sets the PicoWay laser apart from other laser technologies is its ability to deliver ultra-short pulses of energy, in the picosecond range, which is faster than traditional nanosecond lasers. This means that the PicoWay laser can break up tattoo ink particles into smaller pieces more effectively, leading to faster and more efficient tattoo removal with fewer treatments.

The PicoWay laser is suitable for all skin types and can be used on various areas of the body, including the face, arms, legs, and back. The treatment is relatively painless, and patients typically experience minimal downtime.
