Tattoo Removal: Rethinking the Ink?
Permanent Tattoo Removal at Joules Medical Aesthetics
Are you the not-so-proud owner of some regrettable tattoo and now can definitely do without. With laser tattoo removal, a high-intensity light beam is targeted at the pigmentation, causing it to break apart, become absorbed into the body and be excreted through the body’s natural immune system
The tattoo removal process is performed through a series of laser treatments which can take up to 4 to 10 sessions. Different wavelengths of laser target different colors in the skin and multiple sessions are required for a successful removal of a multicolor tattoos. Tattoo colors vary in time to remove – black tattoos are easier to remove than brightly colored tattoos. Green and blue tend to be a little more challenging, and tattoos with yellow, white, and purple are more difficult.
The focus of the laser tattoo removal treatment is to disintegrate the ink particles of the ink. It’s a medical procedure and should be cleared by a MD. When not done correctly, a tattoo removal session gone wrong can lead to scarring, changes to skin texture and burns. With Joules Medical Aesthetics, you can feel confident because of our experienced medical and professional staff that can precisely target the ink and get safe, effective and medically manage results!

Laser tattoo removal uses technology in which a high-powered, very short, pulsed beam of light is delivered at specific wavelengths. The beam passes through the skin and breaks up tattoo pigment particles of all colors and shades into smaller particles. These particles are then gradually eliminated through the body’s lymphatic system. Eventually, the tattoo fades in much the same way that a bruise fades over time.
Yes, it is. When performed correctly by a certified, experienced laser technician, laser tattoo removal is both safe and effective.
- Color, quality, quantity and depth of pigment: Certain pigments—black, red and dark blue—respond better to the laser than do green, orange, and light blue or pink pigments. These lighter pigments can require more treatments to achieve your desired results. Professionally applied tattoos use ink intended to be permanent and can require more treatments than amateur or medical tattoos.
- Age of the tattoo: Older, blurred tattoos that have migrated from their original site can be more difficult to remove.
- Location on the body: Tattoos on thinner-skinned areas—such as ankles or fingers—are more difficult to remove than those placed on thicker-skinned areas, such as the abdomen and shoulders.
Some areas may retain a shadow of the former tattoo, which will fade gradually. During your complimentary consultation, your certified laser technician will assess your tattoo and give you a more precise estimate of the number of treatments you will require.
After your first treatment session, we will have a much better idea as to how long your individual sessions will last. Also, you will have a better understanding of what your pain tolerance is, much of which will be dictated by the location of your tattoo.
