Laser tattoo removal is not a simple process. Tattoo ink is designed to last a lifetime, so breaking that ink down with a laser, even a high powered one, takes time. The challenge in laser tattoo removal is to use enough energy to break down the tattoo ink without using too much energy to damage surrounding tissue. This is the central reason why it is not an overnight process to remove a tattoo.
Laser tattoo removal typically takes between 5 and 15 treatments and the number of treatments depends on how deep the ink has been placed, what the colors are, whether the tattoo is professional or amateur and what the skin type of the person is.
Tattoo removal does involve some discomfort. We offer numbing agents to make the process more comfortable, but it is important to know that the laser tattoo removal treatment program will be involve some pain. Celibre’s professional and courteous staff will do everything possible to make sure that your laser tattoo removal experience is a positive one by using only high powered, state-of-the-art, FDA-approved, q-switched laser technology. Our tattoo removal lasers permanently remove unwanted tattoo pigment by breaking it down using the thermal energy of the laser, which then allows the body’s lymphatic system to carry the ink away. Tattoo removal treatments normally last between fifteen minutes and one hour.
