At Angel Aesthetics we will help to remove any unwanted tattoos as quickly and painlessly as possible without damaging the skin.
We use the Harmony XL laser with a customized hand piece that allows us to incorporate two different laser wavelengths to treat a wide range of colored tattoos. Tattoo ink and natural pigmentation, like melanin, absorb short pulse duration/high peak energy pulses, creating a photo-acoustic effect within the pigment clusters. This effect breaks down the ink into much smaller particles that can be more easily removed by the body’s natural filtering system.
Tattoo removal typically requires six to eight or more treatments, spaced approximately six to eight weeks apart.
Numbing cream is applied approximately 30 minutes before the treatment. For more sensitive or smaller areas such as fingers or ankles, a lidocaine shot may be administered to optimize comfort. Please discuss this option with your practitioner.
