This client had their entire arm blacked out, from top of shoulder to finger tips.  Over the two years we’ve been working on just the fingers and achieved about 80% fading, the client decided to have us start working on the entire sleeve.  The goal will be full removal on the hands and continue with the progress on the fingers, and to fade enough of the arm from wrist to shoulder so new tattoos will be able to cover it.

To achieve better fading, and to aid in the comfort of the client, this whole process is broken up into smaller, more manageable sections. In this treatment we’re just working on the hand and wrist.

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.
