To remove tattoos we use an Intense Pulse Light (IPL) laser as it is very effective at reducing pigmented and colored ink of all types, including old tattoos, as well as new ones that you may regret. IPL is cleared by the FDA and provides dramatic results with minimal downtime and only some very temporary discomfort. The secret behind IPL's tattoo removal is the ability to selectively choose the wavelength of light that matches the colored pigment to be removed. It is possible to choose black, blue, green, yellow and red colors, as well as the depth the ink has been tattooed at. With this customized approach, we can selectively remove each color of your tattoo, resulting in a complete removal over a succession of treatments.
Yes, this treatment is safe and effective for all skin types and colors. There are some short term side effects that must be discussed with the doctor.
