Houston, Texas based tattoo artist Mason Chimato was in town for a guest spot and made some time to come to our office for some tattoo removal treatments. He wasn’t happy with how his collar rocker or stomach tattoos looked a few years after getting them and has made the choice to start fading them with us so he can do a larger, full torso tattoo.

Most clients come in for 2-5 laser tattoo removal treatments in order to fade their tattoos to facilitate a cover up, that’s exactly what we’re going to help Mason with.

The white “frosting” that appears immediately during the treatment is water vapor, a byproduct of the 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.

The laser tattoo removal video seen here was filmed in real time, showing just how fast tattoo removal treatments are.
