Which Colors Can Be Addressed?

The Spectrum laser can treat a wide range of tattoo colors, depths, and intensities. Moreover, this treatment can be customized to suit individual requirements, making it the number one choice for tattoo removal.
How Does the Spectrum, Q-Switch Nd: YAG Laser Work?
The Spectrum Q-Switch laser is considered the highest standard in the tattoo removal industry. The laser generates very short high-energy pulses that absorb the tattoo ink pigments and are broken down into smaller particles to be absorbed by your immune system. These particles are safely removed over time through the natural healing process of the body.

Who are the Best Candidates for a Laser Tattoo Removal procedure?
We feel the best candidate for the Tattoo Removal process is any patient who wishes to remove an unwanted tattoo. This treatment can also be appropriate for patients who have some of the following characteristics:
- Are overall physically healthy
- Did not experience success with other tattoo removal methods
- Maintain realistic expectations from the procedure
Please keep in mind that this treatment will work better for some people than others. The age, pigment colors, and depth of your tattoo pigment are all factors in whether laser tattoo removal is a good choice for you. Laser tattoo removal may also not be suitable for patients with certain skin conditions or those who are prone to forming keloid scars.
What’s the First Step?
If you are looking into a tattoo removal treatment in the Milwaukee area, your first step is to contact RemedyNow Aesthetics and schedule your appointment. When you come into our boutique Medical Spa, you will meet with your provider and ask all your questions, have your tattoo examined, and discuss your options. You will be asked about your medical history and lifestyle, so please be completely open and honest throughout your consultation. The information you provide will help reduce unnecessary risk.
Once your treatment plan is made, our Patient Coordinator will help you schedule your first appointment.
What to Expect on the Day of Laser Tattoo Removal
During the tattoo removal process, after you are comfortable and relaxed, the Spectrum handpiece is held above the treatment region and pulses of laser energy are directed into the skin. The laser targets the pigment without damaging the surrounding skin, and the remaining particles are removed by the body’s immune system.
Some patients might experience slight discomfort if they have sensitive skin. Since the laser pulses create a mild stinging sensation, that feels similar to bacon grease splatter.
Laser Tattoo Removal Recovery
After laser tattoo removal, the treated skin appears white and gradually turns red. Little to no downtime/recovery time is required, though social downtime may be needed depending on the tattoo’s location. For faster healing, the treated area must be kept moist and away from the sun.
For maximum results, multiple treatment sessions are required. The exact number of sessions required will depend on the age, depth, complexity, and size of the tattoo. While amateur tattoos can be quickly removed with ease, professional ones are challenging and require time.
Laser tattoo removal treatments are done in intervals in order to allow the zone to heal between sessions. Sessions are generally spaced three to six weeks apart.
How Much Does Laser Tattoo Removal Cost in Milwaukee?
The cost of laser tattoo removal in Milwaukee is impacted by a number of factors, including the number of treatment sessions needed. Additionally, the size, location, colors, and age of the tattoo can all play a role in determining the final price.
