What is Laser Tattoo Removal?
You may have many reasons why you no longer want a tattoo. Perhaps it reminds you of a difficult memory. Or maybe it has faded over time or simply no longer represents who you are. Whatever the reason, breakthroughs in tattoo removal equipment have helped make it possible to lighten and potentially remove the unwanted tattoo altogether. At RareV in Las Vegas, NV, our experienced aesthetic team offers tattoo removal with the state-of-the-art Quanta Q-Plus C laser system by Cartessa™. This laser energy device has proven to yield better results than previous tattoo removal systems and might necessitate fewer treatments. It can be used to treat all colors in tattoos, compared to many other lasers on the market that primarily target black. Learn more by contacting us in Las Vegas, NV, to schedule a consultation.
Who is an ideal candidate for Laser Tattoo Removal?
There are several considerations that may increase the success of your tattoo removal. Ideal candidates for this procedure: Have strong immune systems. This assists in the body’s ability to break down and eliminate the ink properties. Are healthy overall. Smoking and eating an unhealthy diet limit the body's immune system from working at full efficiency. Have older tattoos. Older tattoos have a tendency to respond better to laser removal treatment.
How does Laser Tattoo Removal work?
As soon as Dr. Singh decides that your skin is ideal for tattoo removal treatment, the treatment area will be prepped with a careful cleansing and an application of a topical anesthetic. Dr. Singh will then pass the Quanta Q-Plus C applicator over the surface of the skin as it releases energy and pulsing laser light. The treatment time can vary depending on the size of the tattoo. In certain situations, the tattoo may require a number of sessions before obvious results are seen. These will all be discussed with you during your consultation.
What can I expect after Laser Tattoo Removal?
Following each session, an ointment will be applied to the treatment area along with bandages to protect the area. You might experience redness, sensitivity, and swelling. You could also feel like you have a sunburn followed by a slight scabbing. It's important to adhere to aftercare instructions precisely to expedite the healing process. After the skin has healed, your next treatment session can be scheduled. Dr. Singh does not recommend scheduling sessions sooner than 4 – 7 weeks apart.
