Burning Candle Laser Tattoo Removal

This client has a burning candle tattooed on their forearm and has decided to fade it in order to make room for a larger piece that will tie in better with their sleeve.  Most clients who are looking to get a tattoo covered will need 2-5 laser tattoo removal treatments before an artist can adequately cover it.

The white “frosting” that appears immediately after the the laser is water vapor, a byproduct of the laser tattoo removal treatment.  Within 10 minutes, this fades and is not a burn or blister.

In the left hand of this video is a hose, it’s a cryo-chiller, a device that blows extremely cold air onto the skin before and during a treatment to help reduce any short-term swelling, a common side effect.  It is not a vacuum.

What you see here was filmed in real time, showing just how fast tattoo removal treatments are.
