There are all kinds of reasons why you may want to have your tattoo removed, covered up, or faded.

Whether you are out of room or just need a “do over,” hit Delete®, the experts for safe, comfortable and affordable laser tattoo removal.

How Fading Works at Delete – Tattoo Removal & Medical Salon

Most tattoos fade a little over time, but laser tattoo removal speeds up this process. Usually, people look for laser tattoo fading if they want to cover a tattoo with a new one. The success of a “cover-up” can be greatly improved by fading the original tattoo. Expert tattoo artists often refer patients to Delete –Tattoo Removal & Medical Salon to remove pieces of existing artwork in order to create a larger, more unified tattoo.   

Different methods have been used over the years to achieve fading and removal. These include home or chemical remedies, which are ineffective and/or leave a horrific scar. Surgical removal by a plastic surgeon is an option for small tattoos. Every method has its challenges because of the permanent nature of the tattoo, but none targets only the ink, as well as, laser tattoo removal.

PicoWay laser is the most technologically advanced laser treatment for tattoo removal. It uses short pico-second laser pulses to break down the tattoo ink making it much easier for your body to naturally remove the ink particles biologically. After treatment, your body continues to remove the destroyed ink particles for up to a year. Most clearing occurs in the 6-8 weeks post-treatment. The key advantages of using laser over other tattoo removal and fading techniques is that it only targets the ink leaving your skin safe to avoid scaring.

The number of PicoWay laser treatments to fade could be one or two depending on your goals, the color and depth of your ink, as well as your health and skin type. With PicoWay laser tattoo removal, you can expect fewer treatment sessions, fewer side effects, shorter downtime, and more success regardless of your skin tone and the color of your tattoos. If you are looking to cover up your tattoo with a new one, you can do after your original has faded to a point where it no longer will be seen under your new artwork. We recommend waiting at least 8 weeks after laser treatments before having the area tattooed.
