The reality of having your unwanted tattoo removed with a laser is that it’s just going to take time. But rest assured, in the right hands with the right equipment, you will get rid of your unwanted tattoo!
At Celibre Medical Corporation, we know that this can be frustrating for our patients. That’s why we spend a lot of time on the front end of the process to educate you about laser tattoo removal, so you understand why we recommend certain lasers and a certain sequence of treatment. We do our very best to estimate the time involved and number of treatments that we think you will need to get you where you want to be. It is essential to us that you be 100% on board and involved with your plan.
Because we have to be cautious about not overly damaging the skin when treating your tattoo, we will have to perform a number of laser treatments to break up the ink effectively. Usually, laser tattoo removal will take between 5-15 treatments. This variation is due to a few factors. The color, the depth of the ink, your skin type (or color), and whether an amateur or a professional did your tattoo, will all play into determining this number.
We also talk to our patients about the discomfort involved with laser treatment. It can be uncomfortable. We always have your comfort and convenience in mind, and because of that, we use different types of numbing agents to help make your treatment experience both positive and tolerable.
Most tattoo removal laser treatments will take between 5-60 minutes to finish, depending on the size of the tattoo. And remember, Celibre Medical Corporation will only use high-powered, state-of-the-art, FDA-approved q-switched laser technology to treat your tattoo. These devices use thermal energy to break up the tattoo ink into small particles that your body can digest and remove easily. We want you to get the most effective treatment in the shortest amount of time in each treatment session. That is our commitment to you and why we think we are a step above the rest when it comes to laser treatment of your unwanted tattoo.
