Laser Tattoo Removal

Your skin should reflect who you are and what you value NOW. With laser tattoo removal, you can renew your natural skin without the risks of ineffective, at-home creams. There are different types of tattoo removal devices, but not all are created equal. At Sculpt, the Rohrer Spectrum Laser Tattoo Removal System uses dual wavelengths to remove a vast range of tattoo pigments. The number of treatments recommended will depend on tattoo size, colors, skin types, and other key factors. Multiple sessions may be necessary to effectively remove larger tattoos.

How does laser tattoo removal work?

Tattoo ink is injected into your skin’s middle layer (the dermis), contributing to both its visibility and durability. Different colors absorb light at different rates. With powerful bursts of light energy, we are able to target red, black, green, and blue pigments in the dermis. Once these pigments absorb enough light and heat, they scatter. Afterward, they’re processed from the body by the lymphatic system, never to be seen again.

Laser tattoo removal can tackle unwanted ink nearly anywhere on the body. Certain pigments may be more challenging to target, like white, yellow, light blues, and pink. Darker colors (like black) are the easiest to scatter and remove, but the details of your treatment plan depend on the pigments.

Naturally, larger tattoos will require more sessions to remove. At Sculpt Aesthetics & Wellness, we will create an optimal plan for erasing your unwanted ink.

Laser Tattoo Removal FAQs

Ideal candidates for laser tattoo removal should be in good health before and after the procedure. Laser tattoo removal uses your own immune system to break down and process scattered pigments. Those with a compromised immune system may not see the best results. During your consultation we will speak with you about your medical history and expectations to determine your candidacy.

Laser tattoo removal relies on quick bursts of powerful laser energy. These intense beams may cause some discomfort during the procedure. Laser tattoo removal is often described as feeling similar to receiving the tattoo. Topical numbing creams can be utilized to make the procedure more comfortable for you.

The optimal number of laser tattoo sessions for you will depend on several factors, including size, location, and color. For safety and efficacy, sessions are separated by an average of six weeks, but most patients achieve their desired results within five to ten treatments.
