Tattoo Removal: Rethinking the Ink?

Tattoo Removal at Joules Medical Aesthetics Plano and Southlake - for when you are 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!

Rethink the ink with treatment at Joules Medical Aesthetics

Permanent | Immediate | Non-Surgical

Tattoos consist of thousands of tiny particles of pigment (ink) that have been injected into the dermis, which are suspended in the skin. Normally, the healing process and cell turnover remove small foreign particles from the skin. However, tattoo pigment particles are too large to be removed during these natural processes.

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.

Most tattoos can be considerably diminished and many can be completely removed. Some tattoos can be removed more easily than others, depending on the following factors:

  • 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.

It can be uncomfortable. People who have undergone laser tattoo-removal treatment compare it to the snap of an elastic band against the skin. However, we all experience pain differently and tolerance is a variable factor.
Generally speaking, laser tattoo removal can require anywhere from three to twelve treatments. The number of treatments will depend upon: the age, size, colour, and location of the tattoo; and the type and depth of the ink pigment. Ideally, treatments will be scheduled from four to eight weeks apart to allow your body’s lymphatic system to flush out the dissolved pigment particles. Your technician will be able to provide you with a more precise estimate during your complimentary consultation.

Generally speaking, a laser tattoo-removal session will last no longer than 30 minutes. However, we must assess your tattoo for the following characteristics: size, age, pigment colour, pigment type, pigment depth, design intricacy, and location on your body.

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.
