The SoftLight® Nd:Yag 1064 and Cynosure PicoSure™ 755nm lasers are used to reduce the pigmentation in tattoos. With repeated treatments the tattoo can fade immensely and often even disappear completely.
- Safe on all skin types
How it works
Both the SoftLight® and PicoSure™ are attracted to the pigmentation in tattoos. With repeated gentle treatments the pigmented cells are broken apart, thus allowing the skin to heal with natural pigmentation. Your technician will determine which machine is best suited to your tattoo for optimal results.
What to expect
Your visit to Vancouver Laser for tattoo removal will take under 30 minutes.
The pigmented tattoo area may darken over the days following the treatment but should gradually fade over the next 8 weeks. The size, colour and age of the tattoo will determine the treatment time and number of sessions.
1 treatment every 8 weeks until optimal results are achieved.
- Possible blister and/or scab of the area
Post treatment care
- Avoid sun exposure and wear a sunscreen with an SPF of 50 or more on the treated area
- If the skin blisters or scabs use polysporin until healed
