Laser Tattoo Removal
Why Laser Tattoo Removal?
Even though tattoos are growing in popularity, about 20% of people with them say they’ve considered tattoo removal for one reason or another. The Harmony XL PRO can eliminate dark and multi-colored tattoos; however, it works best on darker pigments like black and blue ink.
Prices start at $99/treatment
WHY HARMONY XL PRO LASER TATTOO REMOVAL?
The high-power Q-Switched Nd:YAG 1064nm laser is ideal for treating darker ink colors (black, blue, and green), while the 532nm wavelength is effective for brighter ink colors (red, orange, and yellow). These high-intensity light beams create a photoacoustic shock wave that breaks up the ink particles in the tattoo.
HOW DOES LASER TATTOO REMOVAL WORK?
The treatment breaks down the ink particles without causing damage to the skin. This is achieved by a Photo-Acoustic effect created by the impact of the laser energy delivered with very short pulses to the targeted ink. Over time, your body’s natural healing processes (the lymphatic system) removes the ink fragments from your body. This allows your tattoo to fade and your body’s lymphatic system naturally flushes out the ink particles, resulting in ink-free skin with minimal risk of scarring or hypopigmentation.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT? IS IT PAINFUL?
No anesthesia is required for the procedure, but a topical anesthetic can be used, so you stay comfortable during the procedure. Most people describe the treatment as similar to a rubber band being snapped against the skin. Some redness immediately after treatment is normal, but you can return to normal activities after your session.
HOW SOON WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Many patients have reported visible improvement in their tattoo's appearance after as little as a single treatment session.
