First we worked to break down the heavier black line outline. This helped to set the groundwork for future sessions with the PicoWay. The PicoWay is the only Picosecond laser to utilise a 730 wavelength. Where 1064 is the most common for black ink removal, sometimes certain inks respond better to the 730 due to the chemical composition of the tattoo ink. While both 1064 and 730 modalities were used for the line-work on this tattoo, we also used the 532 wavelengths to reduce the appearance of the yellow ink.
To address the pre-existing scar tissue, and ink encapsulated within it, The Removery also utilised micro-needling treatments. This causes a mechanical breakdown of scar tissue and creates channels for the encapsulated ink to escape through. Micro-needling is used at the end of this client’s process, to ensure all the scar tissue is broken down, the crystalised ink is ready for the immune system to carry it away.
It seems crazy doesn’t it. But it’s all about wavelengths and William Kwan, MD is here to explain it all in simple English.
Certain wavelengths target certain colored ink. These wavelengths are not focused on the pigmentation of your skin so they avoid it completely. Smart eh and completely safe.
In our hands with our experience it is 100% safe. We have performed over 1 million successful treatments, but there’s a reason Bond villains always have a laser, in the wrong hands they can be very dangerous.
How old it is. How big it is. How colorful it is. There are a number of different factors that affect how long it takes to completely remove a tattoo or fade a tattoo for a cover up. Each tattoo and everybody is unique which makes it so difficult to give an accurate timeframe for removal.
We’re on a mission to give you the most straightforward, easy and efficient laser tattoo removal experience. Your estimate will be entirely bespoke to your tattoo; the size, the colours, the ink. It won’t take long and afterwards you’ll have a plan to finally get rid of your unwanted tattoo and get back to being you.
