About Tattoo Removal

Ideal Candidates

Men or women who are tired of looking at a regretful tattoo or need to have it removed for a new career path.

How it Works

The NaturalLase QS is the highest energy q-switched yag system in the world. Take advantage of four Q-switched wavelengths in one system (1064, 532, 585 and 650 nm). Tattoo ink is removed by using specific wavelengths of light which pass into the skin, and is absorbed by the ink. A given wavelength targets only a single color (or a group of nearby colors). For example, the red wavelength removes the green ink and the green wavelength removes the red ink. The rapid absorption of the light energy (shock wave) causes the tattoo ink to break into tiny particles which can then be removed by the body’s natural filtering systems often referred to as the body’s lymphatic drainage system. Complete Numbing of the treatment area using Lidocaine injections is an available option for a painless procedure.

Typical Results

Tattoos can be removed up to 99% in 3-5 treatments for amateur tattoos and 4-15 treatments for professional tattoos on average. The number of treatments depends on the size of the tattoo, the amount and type of ink used, and the depth of the ink in the skin. Green and yellow inks are the most difficult to remove, and additional treatments are needed to produce significant fading. Each treatment will fade the tattoo and up to a 99% removal rate can be achieved for many tattoos. All treatments are performed 4-6 weeks apart by a Licensed and experienced Physician’s Assistant or Physician and have minimal downtime. The tattoo must be covered and treated with care for 1 week post treatment.
