At Renew Skin Clinic we use Candela's TriVantage's Alexandrite Q-Switched Nd:Yag. TriVantage's Alexandrite is renowned for its superior ability to treat greens, blues and black. The new laser technology makes it possible to deliver that same remarkable performance on tattoos of most colours across a broad range of client skin types.
Q-switched lasers produce very short bursts of high energy laser light. The light is absorbed by the large ink particles, generating heat that shatters the tattoo pigment into minute particles which the body removes naturally through the immune system. Because the laser energy is selectively absorbed by the tattoo ink, the surrounding skin doesn’t overheat and there is no lasting damage. Multiple treatments are required to remove a tattoo.
Treatment varies from patient to patient depending on the age, size and type of tattoo, colour of the patient’s skin. The following steps will take place:
The number of treatment depends on the colour and size of the tattoo. Multiple treatments are required and this can range from 4 to 14 treatments. However on average this ranges between 8 to 12 treatments.
Each treatment will fade the tattoo, the first few sessions are more dramatic as the laser energy intensifies when it hits anything dark, and therefore it is very effective in the first few treatments. Treatments need to be taken every 8 - 10 weeks apart.
The skin will be hot, swollen, and tender, however, it will subside within a few days after the treatment. Some clients may experience mild blistering or pin point bleeding, this is perfectly normal and should heal within a few days. The skin needs to be kept dry as much as possible and covered with a dressing or bandage on the day of treatment.
Patients will experience temporary discoloration or reddening of the skin around the treatment site. Some patients may also experience a temporary lightening or darkening of the skin for a few months following treatment. The skin will typically resolve to normal pigmentation colour.
After care is an important part of success for Tattoo treatment removal and it is important to follow this advice.
Prices are dependent on the size of the tattoo and on the number of treatments required to completely remove all traces of the tattoo. Some colours may require more treatments than others.
