How Does the Revlite Laser Effective in Tattoo Removal?
The Revlite laser removes tattoo ink with the energy of light. A laser is a device which is designed to produce one or more specific wavelengths of light. Tattoo ink is removed by using this specific wavelength of light which passes into the skin, but is absorbed by the ink. The rapid absorption of light energy causes the tattoo ink to break into tiny particles which can then be removed by the body’s natural filtering systems. The Revlite laser provides maximum laser tattoo removal while leaving the surrounding skin unharmed.
What Type of Tattoos Can Be Removed?
The Revlite laser can remove Professional, amateur(homemade), traumatic and surgical tattoos.
How Many Treatments Will It Take to Remove a Tattoo?
On the average, professional tattoos require 6-8 treatments, while amateur tattoos require 4-5 treatments, all spaced approximately 6-8 weeks apart. The number of treatments depends on the amount and type of ink used, and the depth of the ink in the skin.
Does The Laser Remove Coloured Tattoos?
Dark (blue , black) and red inks will resolve the best. Orange and purples usually fade as well. Green and yellow inks are the most difficult to remove , and additional treatments are needed to produce significant fading.
Will the Tattoo Completely Disappear?
In many cases, yes. Greater than 95% fading of the tattoo may be accomplished. However, it is important to know that there are many, many types of tattoo inks in use worldwide today, none of which is regulated. Not knowing which tattoo ink was used, or how deeply it was applied, makes it impossible for the physician to predict the degree of removal on any given tattoo.
Is the Process Painful?
The Revlite laser emits light in very short pulses. The impact of the energy from the powerful pulse of light is similar to the snap of a small rubber band on the skin. The majority of patients do not require anesthesia, depending on the size and location of the tattoo. Anesthesia creams are available if needed.
What Type of Post-Treatment Care Is Necessary?
An antibacterial ointment and a dressing will be applied to the area immediately after the treatment. Occasionally, there will be pinpoint bleeding associated with the treatment. The treated area should be kept clean. Follow your doctor’s instructions exactly as to what to do during the days following the procedure. A shower can be taken the next day, although the treated area should never be scrubbed. If a scab forms it is vital that you do not pick it or scratch it.
How Much Does it Cost?
Laser Tattoo Removal prices range from $50 – $800 and are charged per session. The actual cost for an individual will depend on the area of the tattoo in square centimetres. The number of sessions required cannot be predicted in advance.
