Straight Edge Laser Tattoo Removal

This client has a tattoo that no longer fits their lifestyle and came to use to start laser tattoo removal.  We’re going to fade this tattoo over the course of a few months with two or three treatments until the area is light enough that the client’s artist can cover it, incorporating an already amazing 3/4 sleeve down to the hand.

Most clients who come in are looking to fade tattoos to make room for new ones.  It’s typical to expect between two and five treatments to achieve the desired results.

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.
