The Tri-Lase system provides a safe and effective solution for tattoo removal. It is preferred by patients and professionals because of its outstanding results when used for the removal of tattoos and treatment of pigmented lesions. It is versatile and can safely be used to treat a wide variety of tattoos on various parts of the body.*
The Tri-Lase has been suited with an arsenal of light- based wavelengths that are specifically attracted to tattoo ink. In order to clear the ink from the skin, the laser system creates an energy beam of light. The light will pass through the outer skin layers targeting only the embedded ink. Energy from the laser is rapidly absorbed by the ink causing the pigment to fracture into microscopic particles. Over time, the body’s immune system should clean the particles from the skin causing the tattoo to fade.*
Since not all body art is created alike, there are many factors involved in determining the number of treatments your specific case may require. These factors include, but are not limited to: how long the tattoo has been in the skin (newer tattoos tend to be more resistant than older ones and may require additional treatments), the depth of the ink in the skin, the type of ink used, and whether the tattoo was created by a professional or an amateur. Professional tattoos will typically require anywhere from 3-9 treatments that are spaced from 4-6 weeks apart to ensure optimal results but this will vary. The time between the sessions will enable the body’s immune system to naturally reduce the pigment fragments. Most patients are easily able to tolerate the treatments well and it is often possible to numb an area prior to treatment to minimize sensations. If you’re interested in learning more, please consider reading further literature on tattoo removal by visiting WebMD’s website or Cleveland Clinic’s website. These sites discuss laser tattoo removal in a more general context (not necessarily specific to our technologies) but can provide you with some additional information about the treatment.
