Tattoo Removal

Hollywood Spectra Q-switch Laser:

Nano technology clears most tattoos within 4-10 treatments. Complete resolution depends on pigment and pigment depth.

How Are Tattoos Removed?

Medical lasers use a beam of light to significantly lighten or completely remove your tattoo. When the ink particles absorb the light from the laser, they are broken up into fragments and then absorbed through your body’s immune system. This process generally takes a few weeks. The larger the tattoo, the more sessions it will take to break down the ink particles.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Occasionally, a whitening of the skin may occur. However, normal skin tone should return within 6 -12 months following your last treatment session. Since the ink used in tattooing can vary from tattoo to tattoo, some patients have only partial clearing even after several sessions.

What Will My Skin Look Like After Treatment?

Right after your treatment, your skin will have a white discoloration, and the area around the tattoo may become reddish and appear swollen. This is normal and will disappear slowly over time. Results take about 5 weeks after each treatment. Immediately after treatment, antibacterial ointment and gauze will be applied to the treated area to minimize infection.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

The number of treatments required for optimal results depends on the size, location, depth and color of the tattoo. Treatment should be performed 4 – 8 weeks apart in order to allow the body to remove the maximum amount of tattoo pigment after each treatment.

Each session usually takes 10 – 30 minutes. You will continue to see lightening of your tattoo after each treatment as your body disposes of more pigment. Most patients will see improvement in their tattoos and results can be quite dramatic.
