What is Laser Tattoo Removal
& How Does it Work?

Laser tattoo removal is a procedure that enables the removal of unwanted tattoos from your skin without having to undergo surgery. A device that delivers high-intensity laser energy into the area is used for removing the tattoo. After a series of treatments, you can expect to see a significant reduction and even elimination of unwanted tattoo ink.

There is a common misconception that laser tattoo removal gets rid of the tattoo by burning the skin using laser energy. This is not true. Instead, the energy pulse delivered to the skin heats up the ink of the tattoo; thus shattering it into smaller ink particles.

Over the course of the next few days to weeks, your body’s lymphatic system naturally flushes away the shattered ink particles.

If you have a tattoo that you would like to remove, our team of professionals at MaVie Med Spa can help you get rid of your tattoo safely and efficiently. A consultation with our team will allow you to gain a better understanding of how the procedure works, how many treatments you will require, and what to expect after treatment.

What is the Procedure Like?

At MaVie Med Spa, we use the Picosure® device for our laser tattoo removal treatments. PicoSure® is the first aesthetic picosecond laser in the world that can be used for removing tattoos. It is well known for its fractionated technology that is effectively used as a no downtime treatment to treat signs of aging such as wrinkles, acne scars, and pigmented lesions.

You will feel mild to moderate pain during the procedure of tattoo removal. A topical anesthetic can be applied at the start of the procedure if you so desire, to minimize the discomfort. We will also utilize a cryogen cooling system to deliver cold air to the area during and after the treatment. The medical staff at MaVie Med Spa will ensure that you are as comfortable as possible.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

You will require more than one session of tattoo removal. The exact number depends on a number of individual factors, such as how big the tattoo is, which colors of ink were used and what type of ink was used. In most cases, it takes about six to eight treatments, each spaced out between six to eight weeks for the tattoo to fade to satisfaction.

What is the Recovery Like?

After your tattoo removal procedure, you may experience some swelling, blistering, and light bleeding in the targeted area. It is important to note that these are normal reactions and part of the healing process.

For the next few days, you will be instructed to apply an antibacterial ointment to the treated area so as to prevent infection and promote healing.

Specific instructions will be provided to you at the time of your treatment.

Make sure to keep the treated area clean and dry, and when scabbing develops (which is part of the healing process), don’t peel it off. Allow it to fall off on its own.
