Not happy with the tattoo on their forearm this client had it covered with a super saturated piece that they just aren’t into much anymore. This is the start of the process to fade both the cover-up and the original tattoo enough so the client can get the tattoos they really want.

Take note, the entire forearm was not treated at this office visit, we segment them out to promote faster fading and to help mitigate swelling.

Due to the heavy saturation, the C6 is first being used on the black pigment in the tattoo and at future treatments the PicoSure will be incorporated, too.

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 is a hose that’s connected to 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.
