Tattoo Removal Q & A

Am I a good candidate for tattoo removal?

Laser tattoo removal is now so advanced that it can work well for nearly anyone. Nearly all tattoo colors are removable with today’s state-of-the-art tattoo removal lasers, so even if you have a multicolored tattoo, you can still be a great candidate.

Morphd Laser Tattoo Removal & Skin Rejuvenation has,  a state-of-the-art picosecond laser which is likely to be a good fit for your tattoo removal.

How does tattoo removal work?

Tattoo removal starts with chilling your skin with the Zimmer Cryo 6 chiller to increase your comfort. This powerful chiller also delivers forced cold air to numb the top layer of skin before and during the treatment.

Your tattoo removal specialist moves the laser,  the PicoWay, gently over the tattoo ink. The laser sends rapid energy pulses into the ink below your skin.

As the laser energy reaches the ink, it shatters the tattoo ink into small particles, and those leave your body during normal body elimination processes.

How many tattoo removal treatments do I need?

The number of treatments depends on several factors, including the location of the tattoo, the age of the tattoo, and the ink colors used. Skin type also plays a role. Skin types are usually rated on the Fitzpatrick scale, which is as follows.

  • Type 1: pale skin that always burns after sun exposure
  • Type 2: light skin that usually burns
  • Type 3: medium skin tone that sometimes tans and sometimes burns
  • Type 4: olive skin tone that usually tans and doesn’t burn
  • Type 5: dark brown skin
  • Type 6: darkest brown (near black) skin

Tattoo removal works on all skin types, however, if your skin is darker it may take a few more sessions. The combination of skin type and your unique tattoo determines the estimated number of sessions necessary for removal.

Most patients need a series of treatments, but it’s highly individual. During your consultation at Morphd Laser Tattoo Removal & Skin Rejuvenation, your tattoo removal specialist can estimate the number of sessions needed for your desired results.

Generally, laser tattoo removal sessions are scheduled six to eight weeks apart. You’ll get to see steady progress, with your tattoo getting lighter and lighter with each session.

How can I prepare for tattoo removal?

During your consultation, your Morphd Laser Tattoo Removal & Skin Rejuvenation care provider explains the best ways to prepare for a smooth experience with great results. Usually, this includes staying out of the sun, no indoor tanning, and no harsh products in the treatment area in the weeks ahead of your first tattoo removal session.
