Tattoo Fading Q & A

Do topical tattoo fading creams work?

Tattoo fading creams can’t accomplish much because they only touch the top layer of your skin. These creams usually work by burning off or bleaching your top skin layers, which can leave you with an even worse problem.

Tattoo fading creams can cause tattoo discoloration and distortion, possibly along with scarring.

How does laser treatment fade tattoos?

Morphd Laser Tattoo Removal & Skin Rejuvenation uses an advanced picosecond laser to shatter the ink particles in your skin’s deeper layers without damaging your uppermost skin. When the laser breaks the ink apart, it pulverizes it, leaving many very tiny particles instead.

Your body naturally flushes away those ink remnants over time, so you’ll see gradual fading as this happens.

What is the best laser for tattoo fading and removal?

It depends on your particular tattoo. Morphd Laser Tattoo Removal & Skin Rejuvenation uses a state-of-the-art tattoo fading and removal laser, the PicoWay. This can treat tattoos of all colors and all skin types.

The PicoWay has multiple wavelengths including 1064nm and 532nm, which are ideal for black and brilliant colors (reds, yellows, oranges, and others) respectively also has a 785nm  wavelength laser ideal for removing blue and green ink.

There may be situations where a combination approach works best. Your Morphd Laser Tattoo Removal & Skin Rejuvenation care provider always analyze your tattoo carefully and precisely to make sure you get the ideal laser for maximum fading and ink removal.

How many laser treatments does it take to start tattoo fading?

Most patients get the best results from a series of treatments. You may have noticeable fading after only one or two laser tattoo removal sessions, but depending on the ink and its location it may take a few sessions to see fading progress. Although fading is usually gradual, it’s very satisfying and encouraging to see the unwanted ink disappearing in front of your eyes!
