How does laser tattoo removal work?
High intensity energy breaks apart the ink into smaller particles. The smallest particles are then able to be removed by your immune system. While most machines use nanosecond duration pulses, Enlighten can also deliver picosecond pulses, proven to be more effective at removing ink.
Does it hurt?
There is no such thing as painless tattoo removal, but most people tolerate laser tattoo removal well. It is much less painful than getting the tattoo.
How long does it take?
The amount of time it will take to completely remove your tattoo will depend on a lot of factors, including the size, depth, and colors used, the location, and the tattoo’s age. Most tattoos will require between 3-6 sessions to completely remove. A more specific timeline will be given at your consultation. A single session will usually take between 10-30 minutes.
Will I have scars?
The laser technology targets the pigments in the ink without damaging the surrounding tissue. With proper aftercare, there is very little risk of scarring.
