The Conbio Medlite C6 Laser has four wavelengths to remove all colours of ink. However white and pink cannot be removed and green and blue require extra treatments as these colours are more difficult to remove.
The laser is accurate and can remove specific parts of tattoos.
On average, tattoos take between 5 and 15 treatments. Things such as colour, type of ink, skin colour, location, and age of tattoo effect how many treatments you will need. When you come in for a consultation we can look at your tattoo and review all of this with you.
One of the first three treatments will lighten the tattoo. Some people will see this after one treatment and for others it may take longer. Everyone responds differently.
It takes four weeks for the body to start breaking down the ink and even though the tattoo may appear healed, it is not. The laser breaks the ink down into smaller pieces and then the body has to get rid of it. This process takes 4 - 6 weeks so getting treated sooner than that will not make the tattoo remove any quicker and can also put you at risk for scarring.
Limit the amount of physical activity that you do and sun exposure for the first 24 hours. If the body gets too over heated it can cause the tattoo to blister. Lukewarm showers using mild soap must be taken.
The laser is accurate and can remove unwanted parts of tattoos.
Permanent makeup can be removed however there is associated risk:
Some cosmetic inks have a metallic base which when receiving laser beams may turn black and is then more difficult to remove. A test patch is always undertaken to identify any existing problem.
Most of the time no, but 99% of avoiding scarring is being compliant with after-care instructions. If you are not compliant and develop a blister it could cause scarring.
Price of removal/treatment depends on the size of the tattoo.
Tattoos can be lightened to allow a new design to be overlaid. This requires a six week delay between lightening and new tattoo application.
This procedure is slightly more uncomfortable than getting a tattoo, however it is very fast. Most treatments take between 25 - 60 seconds.
Blisters and scabs are normal following treatment and must be left alone. A burst blister should be covered with a healing ointment and gauze.
You must wait six weeks after a tattoo has been put on to start the removal process.
