Blog Achieve a Clean Slate for Your Skin with Laser Tattoo Removal

Everyone who walks into a tattoo parlor does so with the belief that the tattoo they get will be one they’ll love and enjoy showing off forever. Here at Evolution Med Spa, we can attest that that’s not always the case.

Perhaps you regret a matching tattoo you got with your college roommate, or a tattoo featuring the initials of an ex. Or maybe your tattoo didn’t turn out as well as you had expected, or the artwork you selected no longer resonates with you.

No matter the reason, we’re here to reassure you that it is possible to have that tattoo removed. Laser tattoo removal is a safe and effective way to remove unwanted ink. If you live in New York, Evolution MedSpa can help!

What Is Laser Tattoo Removal

Laser tattoo removal is a medical procedure conducted by a licensed professional in a clinical setting. The purpose of the procedure is to remove your tattoos with a high-powered laser. As the laser moves across your tattoo, it breaks down the ink particles. When these short doses of intense light penetrate the area, the particles heat up and shatter, making it possible for your body’s immune system to naturally excrete these particles over time. 

Multiple sessions are required so the laser can successfully penetrate through the multiple layers of skin where the ink was injected. The size, age, and location of your tattoo are all important factors in determining how many sessions you will need. The average number of sessions is between 4-8. With each treatment session, you can expect your tattoo to fade more and more until it is no longer visible. It’s also important to know that sessions must be spaced 6-8 weeks apart. 

What Are the Benefits of Laser Tattoo Removal? 

The biggest benefit of laser tattoo removal is the ability to remove the ink from your skin, whether that ink has been there for months, years, or even decades. This procedure works well for tattoos of all colors. 

Who Should—And Shouldn’t—Book This Removal Service?

For most people, laser tattoo removal causes mild to moderate pain and discomfort. You should consider tattoo removal services if your tattoo is no longer serving its intended purpose and you’re ready to commit to having it removed. 

If your tattoo is located in a sensitive area, or if you have low pain tolerance, it’s best to discuss your concerns with our specialists during your consultation.
