Removing That Mistake
Tattoo removal once meant gambling low odds of success on a high risk of scarring and pain. New advances in laser technology enable tattoo reversal to become a permanent decision. Our tattoo removal laser, RevLite, features four wavelengths to target a wide range of colors, even difficult-to-treat green and sky blue. As the tattoo is treated, laser energy gently vibrates and shatters the tattoo ink into easily eliminated microparticles. Over time, the tattoo particles will gradually fade through the lymphatic system and the skin will return to its natural color. 5-15 treatments are typically necessary to achieve tattoo clearance.
Our Cynosure’s Picosure laser uses a specific light wavelength, which targets the tattoo ink in the skin. The tattoo ink is destructed, absorbed, and removed through the body’s own filtering system. Minimal damage is done to the surrounding skin while providing maximum tattoo removal.
What Our Patients Are Saying

I went for a simple procedure without any complications. Kim was very nice and answered any questions that I had. I was also greeted nicely by the receptionist. This was the second time I had this procedure done. Kim made small talk and she made me feel welcome.
As the light is absorbed, it is quickly converted to heat. The sudden rise in temperature within the treatment area fractures the ink or pigment into tiny particles. The tattoo ink is destructed, absorbed, and removed through the body’s own filtering system. Minimal damage is done to the surrounding skin while providing maximum tattoo removal.
A tattoo’s color, depth, and the chemical composition of the ink all affect how it responds to the laser during tattoo removal treatment. Black, red, dark orange, and dark blue ink will usually respond relatively quickly to treatments. However, green, purple, brown, light orange, and light blue ink may require additional treatments. A wide range of pigmented lesions can also be treated including freckles, sunspots, and many brown colored birthmarks.
Immediately after the laser treatment, the treated areas may become whitish colored and swell slightly. This whiteness subsides in about thirty minutes. The swelling may last longer by can be reduced by cooling the skin with an ice pack.
