TATTOO REMOVAL

While many enthusiastically get their tattoos, there are many who would love to remove them and if you are one of latter, there is good news. Laser tattoo removal techniques can get rid of your unwanted tattoo with minimal side effects.

How It Works

Lasers remove tattoos by breaking up the pigment colors with a high-intensity light beam. Black tattoo pigment absorbs all laser wavelengths, making it the easiest color to treat. Other colors can only be treated by selected lasers based upon the pigment color.

At Helios, we will first evaluate your tattoo and advise you on the process. The number of treatments you will need will depend on the age, size, and color(s) of your tattoo. The color of your skin, as well as how deep the tattoo pigment goes, will also affect the removal technique.

In general, this is what you should expect during a laser tattoo removal session:

  • You’ll be given a pair of protective eye shields.
  • The technician will test your skin’s reaction to the laser to determine the most effective energy for treatment.
  • The technician uses the laser to pass pulses of intense light through the top layers of your skin that will be absorbed by the tattoo pigment only.

Smaller tattoos will require fewer pulses while larger ones will need more to remove them. In either case, to completely get rid of a tattoo, it will take several treatments. After each visit, your tattoo should become progressively lighter.
