Our treatment practitioners are trained to evaluate tattoos and will work with you to schedule appropriate treatments to achieve the best results possible. You will soon be able to show off your skin instead of hiding your tattoo!
- Techical InfoUnlike most lasers which have at least two wavelengths to target dark blue, black, and red inks, the MedLite with PhotoAcoustic Technology features four wavelengths to target a wide range of colors from blue, black, and red, to orange and purple and even difficult green and sky blue.
After the first treatment, you should expect the skin to experience temporary whitening, but over time the tattoo particles will diminish through the lymphatic system and the skin will regain its natural color.
Dark Blue, black, and red inks have the highest level of success, followed by orange and purple inks. Green and sky blue inks may require further treatments for satisfactory fading.
