Laser Tattoo Removal On A Shin

This is the first treatment to fade the tattoo on the client’s shin. Treatment is done with a Medlite C6, both 1064nm and 532nm wavelengths were used.

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.
