Change, lighten or even remove a tattoo
Many things can influence the decision to want to change, lighten or even remove a tattoo. Tattoo removal can help with all those things!
How does it work? It’s very simple, the laser breaks down the ink in the tattoo. The broken-down ink is then absorbed by the body, mimicking the natural fading that time or sun exposure would create. All tattoo pigments have specific light absorption spectra. A tattoo laser must be capable of emitting adequate energy within the given absorption spectrum of the pigment to provide an effective treatment.
Certain tattoo pigments, such as yellows, greens and fluorescent inks are more challenging to treat than darker blacks and blues, because they have absorption spectra that fall outside or on the edge of the emission spectra available in the tattoo removal laser.
The number of sessions required will vary according to different factors such as the color of the tattoo, the type of ink used, as well as the age of the tattoo. In most cases, more than one session is required and these sessions are usually spaced out by 6 weeks to allow for proper healing.

Aftercare treatment for tattoo removal
Immédiatement après le traitement, il est normal de constater que la zone traitée est rouge, enflée et sensible. Pendant le processus de guérison, il peut se former une croûte, des cloques ou même des ecchymoses sur la zone traitée. Tout cela fait partie du processus de guérison, alors il est très important de ne pas enlever les croûtes et de laisser les cloques se résorber par elles-mêmes.
