At our world-class facilities, we only use the best laser systems in the cosmetic industry as a means to provide safe treatments, with effective results, at the best price for our clients. For this reason, we use the Alma Laser’s Harmony Q-Switched Nd: YAG laser system for tattoo removal. The system works by directing an intense beam of light at the tattoo you want to be removed. The light energy heats up and breaks down the ink under the skin into tiny little particles, which are then naturally flushed out of the body by way of the lymphatic elimination system. The technology from the laser is programmed to target the dye, so the surrounding skin is safe from harm.
Treatments are considered relatively painless; however, we like to apply topical anesthesia to minimize any discomfort you may feel. Many of our patients liken the sensation to a short, quick snap of a rubber band against the skin. Multiple treatments will be needed to break apart the tattoo ink under the skin, with various factors dictating the exact number required.
Typically 5 to 8 sessions will be needed to remove professional tattoo work, while 3 to 5 are usually necessary for treating homemade tattoos. All treatments will need to be spaced out between 4 to 6 weeks to give the previously treated ink time to break apart and flush out of the lymphatic system.
The age, density, and colour of the ink of your tattoo are the main factors that will dictate the number of treatments needed. Older tattoos can be removed in fewer sessions than new tattoos, and shading is easier to treat than highly dense ink. Colour is the most critical component concerning treatment, as various colours are easier to treat than others. Highly visible, and darker colours, such as black, blue, and red, are all easier to treat than lighter hues such as light green, yellow, and orange.
The Side Effects
The most common side effects of laser tattoo removal include redness, swelling, and minor blistering at the treatment site. This is normal, and when left alone to heal, these effects will disappear and leave no long-term damage or scarring.

As part of our mission to provide the safest and most effective treatments for our clients, we offer all potential patients a free consultation at our facility to discuss their cosmetic goals and treatment approach. It is at this complimentary consultation that our medical practitioners will assess your tattoo, taking into account the factors listed above, to determine how many sessions will be needed to fade the ink in question.
