The best way to get fast tattoo removal using laser

  • The best way to get fast tattoo removal using laser

The most common question asked is “what is the fastest way to remove a tattoo.” At Specialist Skin Clinic, we assess and take into account a wide range of variations. We can then create the best treatment to give fast tattoo removal.

We do remove the guess work about what type of laser used, by only using the very best. By using the most advanced technology available on the market we get results.

When you have decided that you no longer want to keep your tattoo. Your first thought is  I need fast tattoo removal to get rid of it. Some people get frustrated with the speed in which the tattoo is fading. The time it takes can depend on a range of factors. If you are unhappy with speed your tattoo is being treated take a few minutes to consider a few factors.

7 factors that can affect how fast tattoo removal works:

  1. Laser Type effects how fast tattoo removal works.

The most important factor in this equation is the Laser type. For effective tattoo removal, the laser needs to be powerful. It has to deliver high power in a tiny fraction of a second to break up the ink. Not all lasers are the same and some are more powerful than others. Sometimes it is necessary to use a combination of different lasers to get the desired effect.

Our Revlite laser uses thermal energy to shatter the ink. It has a nanosecond delivery and breaks up ink into small particles. this means the body can then remove them faster .

The new revolutionary Picoway laser is able to deliver pulses in Pico seconds. This creates a shockwave breaking up the inks into even smaller fragments. These smaller fragments are easier for the body to break down and dispose of. This means the tattoo is generally removed in less time and with fewer tattoo removal

Using the right laser also results in less skin damage. Laser energy used will destroy the ink rather than cause trauma in the skin.

  1. Wavelength and Ink colours.

We use different wavelengths of light to remove different colours of ink in a tattoo. Black is the easiest colour to remove in general lighter colours are harder to remove. If a tattoo has a range of colours it will need different wavelengths during the treatment to remove it. Our lasers have a range of wavelengths. so we can give reassurance that we have the right tools to treat a range of complex colours.

  1. Depth of ink in relation to how fast tattoo removal works.

A tattooist puts ink into the lower layers of the skin. This layer, protected by epidermis has durability. Often it is at different depths or layered to give density of colour. The deeper the ink in the skin and the more layers applied, the loner it will take to remove it. High quality professional tattoos take longer to remove than the amateur tattoos.

If a tattoo is covered over by another tattoo be aware too that the first treatments will uncover the older tattoo.

  1. Laser tattoo removal expertise.

The skill and expertise of the person treating your tattoo has a profound effect on the end result. Well trained, experienced experts will consider treatment results. They can then consider possible changes in a treatment. This can sometimes be better than keep delivering the same treatment over and over again. Nothing can compensate for the experience of treating many different types of tattoo.

Our staff are both experienced and trained. they have the support of Dermatologist Dr Gonzalez an expert in this field. You could not be in safer hands. An experienced practitioner will give you an idea of how fast tattoo removal will work in your case.

  1. The age of the tattoo.

In general older tattoos are easier to treat and will respond faster to tattoo removal. Faded ink  tends to have less density. Different types of inks used over the years have different properties. Older more basic inks tend to remove faster.

  1. Tattoo’s location on the body.

Tattoos on the face, neck or upper back are in general faster to remove due to the proximity to the lymph nodes. Other areas may vary with feet and hands tending to be slightly slower to remove.

  1. What you do between treatments.

What you do between tattoo removal treatments will affect the results of the treatment. If your skin heals well after treatments ,it will result in a better outcome. Allowing time to cool the skin is important and then the right aftercare at home is necessary.

Recovery time is important the skin needs to repair between sessions. It is not possible to have sessions closer together to speed things up.

Keeping the tattoo out of the sun is very important. Tanned skin is much harder to treat with the higher energies needed to get results. Lifestyle can also effect the body’s ability to heal. Smoking is one of the well-known factors that slows healing. This can affect the removal of tattoos and how fast tattoo removal works.
