Can Laser Tattoo Removal Be Used on Any Type of Tattoo?

While tattoos may seem like a good idea in the youthful years, many patients regret having these tattoos completed as they enter into their adult years. Perhaps the location of their tattoo keeps them from the career they want, or maybe the tattoo is a trigger for a memory of the past that a patient wants to move on from. Whatever the reason, tattoos don’t have to be permanent. With the help of Remington Laser Dermatology Centre, patients can achieve ink-free skin with laser tattoo removal.

How laser tattoo removal works

Laser tattoo removal works on the skin by breaking up the pigmentation of the ink and allowing the body to natural absorb and flush it through the body’s lymphatic system. When this happens, the tattoo will slowly begin to fade over time until it is no longer visible. To achieve this, patients need to undergo several treatment sessions.

Can laser tattoo removal be used on any type of tattoo?

Whether your tattoo is large or small, dark or light, or old or new, our laser device can assist. There are certain characteristics of a tattoo that may make it more difficult to remove, and therefore require more treatment session. Many factors need to be considered when determining how many treatments are needed, including:

  • The age of the tattoo
  • The quality of the inks used
  • The colors of the inks used
  • The area of the body
  • The size of the tattoo

During an initial evaluation appointment with Drs. Todd and Kent Remington, patients can voice their concerns and ask questions about the procedure. Our team can also give an idea to the patient as to how many treatment sessions are required to achieve the results they desire.
