ELIMINATING TATTOOS

Laser treatment is the most convenient and effective way to remove tattoos without undergoing surgery and, therefore, without leaving marks or scars.

To remove tattoos, laser breaks up the pigments that are on the skin so the body can eliminate them progressively.

Treatment

Laser treatment provides a quick result without having to undergo surgery: the tattoo will be removed without leaving marks or scars.

Laser will be applied by passing through the patient's tattooed skin that is converted into heat to be absorbed by the tattoo pigments. This heat consumes the structure of the pigments and disintegrates, which enables the body to progressively remove them. In fact, the next day a small surface crust will form, which falls in a few days leaving the skin with no marks or scars.

Since, depending on the size, color and depth of the tattoo, treatment may be painful, local anesthesia is applied.

The full treatment laser tattoo removal is performed over several sessions lasting between 15 to 30 minutes, after which the patient can return to normal activity immediately.

The number of sessions varies for each patient depending on the length and depth of the tattoo, color pigments and uniformity, as well as skin type and treatment area. However, the results begin to be felt after the first session: the tattoo fades progressively.

Sessions are usually spaced in 2 to 3 months. This frequency ensures that the skin properly recovers between sessions.

Furthermore, to achieve the fastest and safest results, treatment is adjusted to the individual characteristics of each patient: skin type and skin color, age, color and depth of the tattoo, etc.
