What is the tattoo actually?
Tattoos are artificially injected pigments, which remain permanently in the skin. Tattoos colors may vary, though they are mostly dark. Their sizes differ from small dots to practically the whole body. However, the statistics data shows that more and more people express their desire to get rid of their tattoos. Each individual has their own personal reasons for doing so.
How do you remove tattoos?
Q-Switched Nd:YAG (M22) is the most effective and harmless way to remove dark tattoos. The device has multiple tips, which are designed to target different dark colors such as black, brown, and dark blue. The artificial pigments absorb the laser light better than the skin itself, meaning we can control and focus the laser energy right on the spot. This additionally reduces the risk of side effects. Once the absorbed energy destroys the pigment it is carried out of the body through the macrophages' phagocytosis. Usually, the immune system needs a couple of weeks to completely destroy the pigment.
How many times should I undergo a procedure?
The number of procedures depends on the quality of the tattoo pigments and the skin thickness. That being said, we recommend several procedures until there is no pigment left. The interval between the sessions should be between 4 to 6 weeks.
Does it hurt?
We use local anesthesia to reduce the discomfort. After the manipulation, you might experience some redness and bruises but you will fully recover in about five days.
