Tattoo Removal

lasermainpicAlthough a tattoo looks like a simple painting on the skin, it’s actually a series of ink deposits placed deep into the skin – designed to last forever. The reality is that thousands of people decide to remove their tattoos each year because the designs are no longer relevant to their lifestyle. Lasers are the answer.

Lasers are the safest and most effect way to remove tattoos. The RevLite is the gold standard tool for this sophisticated procedure, using up to four different wavelengths to remove multiple colors of tattoo ink.

The RevLite uses Photo Acoustic energy to safely penetrate the skin and target the tattoo at its core. Each pass of the laser vibrates and gently shatters the tattoo ink into micro-particles that are eventually eliminated through the body’s natural processes. Because the laser delivers the energy in a very precise ‘beam, technicians can trace the design without damaging the surrounding skin.

Clients say the experience feels similar to the tattoo application itself – a snap of a rubber band followed by a feeling of warmth. That said, it takes much longer to remove a tattoo than to get a tattoo – about six to 15 sessions, depending on the amount of colors, the size of the design and the type of ink. Black tattoos are easier to remove than multi-colored designs — but all tattoos must be treated with the proper laser.

Can lasers erase all tattoos?
Lasers are the safest way to remove tattoos. But, not all lasers can erase tattoos. As with any laser-based skincare procedure, a technician must choose the correct wavelength based on the color of the tattoo ink. The RevLite lasers are considered the gold standard for single and multi-color tattoo removal.

Why are MedLite and RevLite considered gold-standard for tattoo removal?
The original MedLite was introduced nearly 20 years ago, pioneering the use of Photo Acoustic energy for tattoo removal and other indications. Since then, ConBio™ scientists have updated and evolved this laser based on clinical studies and physician feedback. The current version, the MedLite C6, represents state-of-the-art technology. The RevLite is built on the same core platform as the MedLite C6 – and harnesses 60% more power for certain procedures. The RevLite is the laser that Skin Grafix uses.

How does Photo Acoustic lasers work to eliminate tattoos?
The Photo Acoustic energy works to gently vibrate and fragment the tattoo ink into tiny micro-particles that are gradually eliminated by the body’s natural process.

Does laser tattoo removal hurt?
The tattoo ink absorbs a great deal of the laser energy and some clients may feel mild discomfort as the physician traces the design.

How long will it take to remove my tattoo with a laser?
