Tattoo Removal Myths

The tattoo you’re no longer in love with…you don’t have to live with that tattoo for the rest of your life. With the advancements in laser technology, you can now remove the tattoos you no longer want in half the time with our advanced PicoWay Laser.

There are many myths in the tattoo industry, such as the tattoo removal process is long and painful, or it often fails to remove the entire tattoo. Prepare to be pleasantly surprised – here’s a list of facts about laser tattoo removal to set your mind at ease:

Myth 1: Tattoo ink goes very deep

This is false. Tattoo ink only penetrates into the dermis, which is the layer immediately beneath the outer layer of your skin. This is done in order to avoid the tattoo from being disturbed when your epidermis (the outer layer of skin) sheds and renews itself over time. Professional tattoo artists avoid placing tattoo ink below the dermis because of the scar that would be created distorts their art.

Myth 2: Tattoo removal can cause skin damage

Laser tattoo removal should not be an unsafe process. In the hands of medical professionals, laser tattoo removal targets the ink not your skin.  Once the inkse particles are broken down, your body discards the ink naturally. It is a myth that tattoo removal removes and/or damages your skin.  One of the safest ways to remove tattoos is with the superior PicoWay lasers. PicoWay fires in trillionths versus billionths of seconds, photoaccustically destroying the ink particles using less heat then traditional Q-switched lasers. Ideally, your skin will look as unblemished as it was before you were inked.

Myth 3: Tattoo removal is a long process

The duration of the tattoo removal process depends entirely on factors like the amount of ink, number of colors and depth of ink of your tattoo, and your skin tone, overall health and commitment to the process. While the removal of ink was once a process that typically took a year or more, technological innovation has led to a sharp decline in the number of treatments it takes to completely remove a tattoo. PicoWay’s “picosecond technology” is the leading advancements in laser tattoo removal. This technology involves emitting laser pulses at a picosecond – which is a trillionth of a second – to dramatically break the ink particles down into even smaller pieces. Smaller ink particles are easier for your body to remove. PicoWay with its dual wavelengths and shorter pulse duration makes it the most effective and safest tattoo removal laser available.
