Tattoo Removal Made Safe and Effective
How tattoo removal works
As soon as you get a tattoo, your body will start trying to remove it. Ink is a foreign substance, and your immune system reacts the same way that it would to a cold or any other kind of infection. You know this is happening because even though a tattoo will start out perfect and pristine, it won’t take long before it starts getting faded and hazy looking. This is your body trying to remove the tattoo ink. It isn’t able to, however, since many of the ink particles are too large for the body to move.
What laser removal does is simply make the process that is already happening work better, faster and far easier. The lasers will shatter the ink into small particles so that your body is able to effectively clear it from your system.
How tattoo removal lasers works
There are currently two types of lasers used for tattoo removal. This is the nanosecond q-switched laser like the RevLite SI and the picosecond laser from PicoSure. Both break down tattoo ink into small enough particles for the body to take them away, though the PicoSure is able to smash them into even smaller particles, speeding up the process considerably. Traditionally, laser treatments have taken between ten and fifteen sessions. Using the PicoSure and our T2 method, Tataway has been able to get results in between three and eight sessions.
Most facilities have only a single q-switched device. We go further, and because we have two different lasers we are able to use our own multi-wavelength protocols that allow us to expedite your removal, saving you both time, money and visits. In the T2 method, we use both the RevLite and PicoSure laser to shatter your tattoo ink. We are able to modify the wavelengths of our lasers in five different ways, which allows us to work on a variety of skin types and colors.
