Tattoo Removal

Tattoo removal involves the lightening and complete removal of tattoo ink with specific lasers.* Depending on the color and density of the ink, the type of laser and number of treatments required varies.*

What is a traumatic tattoo?

Traumatic tattoos result from the deposition of dirt, gravel, or debris in the skin following a scrape or injury to the skin. The traumatic tattoo is typically blue to grey in color and is permanent. The Q-switched Nd:Yag laser is often the treatment of choice for these types of tattoos.*

The tattoo is first numbed with local anesthesia and the laser is pulsed against the blue-grey color. The skin turns white to grey and is allowed to heal over the next week or so.* Unlike professionally applied cosmetic tattoos, traumatic tattoos may respond to treatment within one to two treatments (but may need more).*
