Stirling Skin Care Clinic uses the Cutera Enlighten™ laser system to rid you of your unwanted tattoo. With a dual-pulse duration, the Enlighten™ combines picosecond and nanosecond pulses to break up ink molecules in your tattoo.
Safe and effective, this laser system focuses on the pigments in your tattoo, sending laser light energy directly into it without damaging the surrounding tissue. This energy essentially shatters the ink molecules into tiny pieces, which your body excretes.
With the Enlighten™ laser system, the team at Stirling Skin Care Clinic can remove most tattoos and reduce the appearance of all tattoos. The success of your laser tattoo removal depends on a variety of factors, including the tattoo’s:
Over time and with multiple treatments, most tattoos fade to the point of near-invisibility. During your initial consultation, our team will examine your tattoo and discuss the projected outcome.
Tattoo removal requires multiple treatment sessions. The depth of the ink, the location of the tattoo, and its age all influence how many treatments you need.
For instance, solid black tattoos often require fewer treatments than blue ones. Homemade tattoos often take 5-7 treatments, while professional tattoos take 8-15 removal sessions.
Wait 4-12 weeks between treatment sessions to allow your skin to heal.
After each laser tattoo removal treatment, your skin requires care similar to a new tattoo. For the first 24 hours post-treatment, ice the area to reduce pain and inflammation. Elevate the area and limit its mobility.
Keep the area covered and protect it from scrapes and bumps. Avoid getting it wet and cover the area when you’re in the sun. After 24 hours, you can resume all normal activities except swimming.
Throughout your entire treatment, avoid soaking the area in swimming pools, hot tubs, or pedicure bowls. You should also avoid sun exposure and tanning beds.
