At RemedyNow Aesthetics in the Milwaukee Metropolitan, Laser Tattoo Removal is a commonly asked about laser treatment. A large percentage of people who get tattoos eventually want to have them removed. The reasons behind this vary. Regardless of your reason, laser tattoo removal can be an effective solution.
Since the pigment is injected deep into the skin layers while tattooing, it is covered by a strong network of collagen fibers that make tattoo removal quite difficult. However, with the help of Spectra’s Q-switched laser technology, tattoo removal is now simple and effective.
Note: Spectra Q-switched laser tattoo removal is only available at our Oak Creek location.
Which Colors Can Be Addressed?
There are various kinds of Q-switched lasers that can act on different ink colors, depending upon the light absorption spectra of the pigments. While black, dark blue, brown, and green inks can be completely removed using Q-switched lasers, lighter colors can be more difficult to get rid of.
The Spectra 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 Spectra Q-Switched Nd: YAG Laser Work?
The Spectra laser generates very short high-energy pulses. The tattoo ink pigments absorb the laser energy and are broken down into small particles. These particles are safely removed over time through the natural healing process of the body.
The Treatment Session
During the tattoo removal process, once the patient is comfortable and relaxed, the Spectra handpiece is held above the treatment region. Pulses of laser energy are then directed into the skin.
Some patients might experience slight discomfort if they have sensitive skin. Since the laser pulses create a mild stinging sensation, the tattoo removal expert will administer topical or local anesthesia to make the entire procedure painless.
After the Session
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.
