Laser Tattoo Removal
Tattoos reflect who we were and what was important to us when we got the tattoo. But, people grow and evolve over time. Sometimes the tattoo we got no longer reflects who we are now.
About 20-50% of individuals regret their tattoo. For those people, having the tattoo can be embarrassing and can be a barrier in their lifestyle or career advancement goals. Covering tattoos with clothing or makeup can be tedious and inconvenient; it is a messy and temporary solution.
Tattoo Removal Centers of America has developed a state of the art protocol that has made it possible to safely and effectively remove unwanted tattoos without a scar.
At Tattoo Removal Centers of America, we use the RevLite laser, the next generation of Q-switched laser technology. The RevLite laser is the finest tattoo removal laser available. The RevLite SI laser is a multi-wavelength aesthetic laser ideal for safe, effective, individualized tattoo removal in patients with all skin types. Many doctors routinely refer their patients to us because of our expertise and the caliber of laser we use.
Laser Tattoo Lightening
Tattoo Removal Centers of America works with many clients who wish to have an old tattoo lightened in preparation for a cover-up tattoo. The process of lightening is the same as laser tattoo removal, with the exception that fewer treatments are required.
We frequently receive referrals from tattoo artists who want to help their clients to adequately lighten their primary tattoo so that they will ultimately have more cover-up design and color options. Tattoo Removal Centers of America works closely with our clients’ tattoo artists to help our patients to achieve the optimal lightening required for their ultimate cover-up goals.
TRCA collaborates with many tattoo centers and tattoo artists to help our clients arive at the results they are looking for.
How It Works
Laser energy is directed at the tattooed area for a tiny fraction of a second (5 billionths of a second). The RevLite laser energy passes harmlessly through the outer layer of the skin and targets the tattoo ink directly. The laser shatters the tattoo ink into micro-particles that your body then breaks down naturally and absorbs. The RevLite laser selectively targets the tattoo ink pigment without damaging the surrounding skin. The result is successful and safe tattoo removal with minimal discomfort. A series of treatments are needed and the average treatment takes between 20 seconds- two minutes.
