Clinical Dermatology > Tattoo
The tattoo removal is done with laser that has well defined light and thus only reaches the layer of skin that contains the pigment. The device acts by firing a beam of light of specific wavelength that, upon reaching the skin, is absorbed by both black and colored pigments. Before starting the procedure the skin is anesthetized to minimize heat discomfort. Absorption of light energy causes the tattoo pigment to fragment, which is absorbed by the body’s immune system.
Post-treatment: Avoid exposure to sunlight.
Protocol: Between 4 and 12 sessions, monthly. It will depend on the type of pigment, depth and intensity of the paint.
Result: Gradual, tattoo strokes get thinner and clearer
