There are many reasons why someone might want a tattoo removed: job requirements, tattoo regret, a misspelled word, or simply growing tired of the mark. Whatever your reason for tattoo removal, let us help you say a permanent good-bye to your unwanted ink.
How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?
In the past, tattoos were considered a permanent decision—but thanks to new laser treatments and technology, you can get a tattoo you’ve always regretted removed for good. Our laser tattoo removal in NYC works by breaking up the ink pigment colors in your skin. When you first got your tattoo, the ink was applied with a needle deep in the skin, where the coloring was absorbed by skin cells permanently.
Laser treatments attack the ink coloring absorbed in your skin cells, breaking it up with a high-intensity light beam. After the laser has broken up the pigment, your cells will naturally remove the particles from your skin, and your tattoo will be gone. Depending on the size and location of your tattoo, several treatments may be required to fully remove the pigment from your skin.
Is Laser Tattoo Removal Painful?
Laser tattoo removal is uncomfortable, but it does not damage the skin or leave a scar. You’ll be given a pair of protective eye shields during the tattoo removal treatment, and we recommend soothing the area with an ice pack afterward. Let us know if you have any questions about the treatment process.
