How Tattoo Removal Works
Colorado Laser Treatments Uses The Safest, Most Effective Equipment
Tattoo inks are held in the in the sub-epidermis level called the dermis.
The inks are suspended in the dermis at a level shallow enough (usually about 3mm) to be visible through your epidermis so your tattoo can be seen. When laser light of the appropriate wavelength penetrates the dermis and strikes the ink, the ink is broken into very small particles. These ink particles are small enough to be absorbed by your immune system and the tattoo disappears over time and more treatments.
The particles are released from the dermis and are then absorbed by your immune system via the lymph nodes. Laser tattoo removal is the only tattoo removal method that can produce this result. All other methods involve dermabrasion (sandpaper), excision- literally cutting the tattoo off, ineffective creams or drilling holes into your skin!
Laser tattoo removal is the most effective and comfortable method of removing the ink you want gone!
1 Step One: Boulder Laser Tattoo Removal
The first step in tattoo removal is meeting with one of our technicians for a free consultation. During the consultation, we will assess your skin type using the Fitzpatrick Scale.
- We’ll examine your tattoo in order to determine how many treatment sessions may be necessary.
- We will inform you about the risks and advantages of laser tattoo removal treatments.
- We’ll also determine a price per laster tattoo session in order for you to know how much each treatment will cost and schedule a time for follow up assessment of your progress.
We are a no pressure tattoo removal company.
Colorado Laser Treatments will make you feel comfortable with your choice and ensure you have the best treatment experience possible. If you choose to have the treatment, you can usually start the same day as your consultation.
Step Two: Boulder Laser Tattoo Removal
The second step is the actual treatment. After the assessment, your tattoo area will be chilled using our three options cooling: ice, chill plate or the Cryo 5. After that, we will administer the laser treatment.
