Tattoo Removal Methods

If you have a tattoo that you want to remove, you’re likely looking into every tattoo removal method available. Our Clinical Advisory Board is constantly looking into methods other than laser treatment, too, so that we can provide our clients with the best possible advice. As tattoo removal experts, we can assure you that laser tattoo removal with Removery is the safest and most successful option.

The Truth About Tattoo Removal

Tattoo removal is achieved in one of two ways. The first is that the body absorbs the ink, and the second is that the ink is pushed or extracted up and out of the skin. All methods other than laser removal require breakage of the skin so that ink can be pushed out via natural, mechanical, or chemical processes. Lasers are the only method that can break down the ink without breaking the skin, allowing the body to absorb the ink naturally and pass it out of your system.

The truth of the matter is, other than the physical excision of the tattoo (which is expensive and leaves a scar), the only truly effective way of completely removing a tattoo is with a professional laser. Though home tattoo removal and non-laser tattoo removal may seem appealing, they are rarely effective.

Other Tattoo Removal Methods

Laser Tattoo Removal Is a Great Option for a Variety of Needs

When you want a tattoo removed, it’s natural to be curious about home tattoo removal and non-laser tattoo removal. Whether you’re apprehensive about going to a clinic or don’t feel you can afford laser tattoo removal, you probably hope that there’s an alternative that can get the job done safely and effectively.

Remember, tattoos can only be removed by pushing the ink out through the surface of the skin or by breaking it up into small enough particles so the body can flush it out of the system. Unfortunately, other tattoo removal methods are rarely effective at doing this. Although it needs to take place in a professional clinic setting and certainly involves some costs, laser tattoo removal performed by a trained professional is the safest and most effective way to completely remove an unwanted tattoo.

PicoWay® Laser Technology

Removery uses only the most state-of-the-art PicoWay® laser technology to safely remove or fade unwanted tattoos. Picosecond technology allows the laser to go in and out of the skin at a much faster rate than a Q-switch laser (what the "other guys" use). A picosecond is a trillionth of a second - this faster rate causes the ink to break down into much smaller particles, allowing the body to digest these particles faster.

Laser Tattoo Removal

Laser tattoo removal is a procedure that has been FDA approved for about 20 years. Both the process and technology have come a long way over the past couple of decades to become a safe and effective procedure.

What is Laser Tattoo Removal?
Fading or Coverup

Laser Tattoo Fading for Tattoo Coverups

Covering your tattoo with another newer tattoo is an option that many people choose. The use of laser often allows tattoo artists to effectively cover almost any existing tattoo. Tattoo fading usually takes up to 5 sessions before most artists can begin working. Clients find that covering their tattoos after the laser is a cost-effective way to get something new without completely removing their tattoos.

Tattoo Cover Up

Eyebrow & Cosmetic Removal

Eyebrow tattoos are commonly seen on people who desire thick full eyebrows. However, styles change, and these tattoos can also change in color over time, which are two of the reasons why we see clients who want to get eyebrow tattoo removal.
