Laser Tattoo Removal Cedar Rapids, IA
If you are living in regret about one or more of your tattoos, you’re not alone. The good news is that your tattoo isn’t as permanent as you may have originally thought. At Cosmetic Solutions Laser and Skin Care Center we offer laser tattoo removal treatments that can take away those unwanted tattoos and restore your natural skin.
Laser Tattoo Removal
We use Cutera’s Enlighten III to perform our laser tattoo removal treatments. This system uses the most advanced laser tattoo removal technology to safely remove unwanted tattoos of different colors and sizes in all different locations.
How Does It Work?
The Enlighten III laser system uses short, high-power, picosecond laser pulses to target and destroy the ink particles that make up the entirety of a tattoo. The powerful technology in the device can eradicate unwanted tattoos faster than other traditional laser systems.
The dual wavelengths use nano and pico pulses to quickly and effectively shatter tattoo ink particles. As it does, the body responds with an immune reaction and uses the lymphatic system to flush those particles away in the weeks following each treatment.
What Types of Tattoos Can It Remove?
The Enlighten III laser system can remove all types of tattoos, including new, old, and faded ones. It can also just remove certain features from tattoos if you don’t want to eliminate the entire tattoo. It can also treat tattoos that have been previously treated by another laser system but have not been completely eliminated.
What Should I Expect From the Treatment?
One of the reasons Enlighten III is the best choice for tattoo removal treatments is that not only does it completely eliminate unwanted tattoos, but it does so through a safe and virtually painless treatment process. Most patients compare the tattoo removal sensation to the feeling of a rubber band gently snapping against the skin.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Most patients need a series of treatments to completely eliminate their unwanted tattoos. The tattooing process forces ink into the skin at different depths. As a result, the laser must break down the pigment particles at different levels of the skin to effectively eliminate the entire tattoo.
The body responds to each treatment by flushing those particles from the system, which results in a gradually fading tattoo. Depending on the color and size of your tattoo, it will take a series of specific treatments to eliminate it completely.
When Will I See Results?
Patients will notice some immediate results following their first treatment. As the body eliminates the shattered pigment particles from the system, the treatment area will slowly resume a natural and uniform skin tone.
The tattoo’s color pigment will fade after each treatment until it’s completely removed from the skin. It’s important to note that some activities can slow your results, including alcohol consumption, which taxes the liver and slows the process, and smoking, which decreases blood circulation.
Is There Downtime?
Once your treatment is over, you can resume your normal daily activities. We will provide aftercare instructions you must follow since the skin in the treatment area will be more sensitive to the sun and certain topical products. You may experience some redness immediately following your treatment, but it will completely subside shortly after.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
The best candidates for laser tattoo removal treatments are patients in good health with one or more unwanted tattoos who want a safe and effective process that can permanently eliminate those tattoos.
Patients who have undergone tattoo removal treatments in the past that haven’t completely eliminated their tattoos also make good candidates for this treatment process. It’s important that patients commit to the recommended number of treatments to achieve their ideal results.
