Laser Tattoo Removal
Laser tattoo removal offer a safe and effective way to remove a tattoo that no longer meets your needs. Whether your personal style has changed, the tattoo reflects a message (or name) you no longer support or the visibility of the tattoo is a problem, we have a solution for you.
How does laser tattoo removal work?
Here at Cayce Med Spa, we use the tried-and-true Q-switch laser. This laser utilizes short but strong pulses of light energy that target dark pigment. When the laser makes contact with the pigment, the pigment is heated up and shatters into tiny fragments which are then filtered out of the body by the immune system. This process happens over a series of sessions, typically spaced 8-10 weeks apart.
How long does laser tattoo removal take?
The length of the laser tattoo removal process depends on many factors including the location of your tattoo, the age of your tattoo, the depth of the ink, the color and type of the ink, your aftercare and your overall health. Newer tattoos tend to take longer to fade. Additionally, a very dense, heavy-handed tattoo will also take longer to fade. On the other hand, the fading process can be helped along by adopting healthy habits including exercising regularly, not smoking, staying hydrated and keeping out of the sun.
