Tattoo Removal Q & A

How does tattoo removal work?

Tattoo removal is designed to get rid of unwanted pigment in your skin without causing damage to the skin itself. 

During tattoo removal, Samantha at The Spa MD directs the Harmony XL PRO Q-switched laser at your tattoo. The laser’s energy targets the pigment in your tattoo. 

As the pigment absorbs the laser’s energy, it starts to break up. Once the pigment is broken into smaller pieces, your body’s natural filtering processes absorb and remove it. Over the coming weeks and months, your body starts to absorb the broken-up pigment from your tattoo. As it does, the tattoo slowly fades from your skin. 

Tattoo removal can be uncomfortable, but it shouldn’t cause you excess pain. Talk with Samantha at The Spa MD about your pain tolerance. She can provide a topical anesthetic to ensure you’re comfortable during each session. 

Does tattoo removal work for all tattoos?

Tattoo removal lasers have advanced significantly in recent years. That said, they’re still most effective on darker inks. The Harmony XL PRO laser works extremely well on black tattoo ink but can also target blue and green pigments. 

The Harmony XL PRO laser is specifically designed to deliver a high power output. By delivering more energy, it can treat larger areas faster.

If you have a tattoo you no longer want, don’t hesitate to book an appointment at The Spa MD. One of the tattoo removal specialists can look at your tattoo and determine if you’re a good candidate for laser tattoo removal. 

How many tattoo removal sessions will I need?

It depends on your tattoo and your skin. Generally, the larger and darker your tattoo, the more sessions you’ll need to clear it from your skin. Old tattoos are usually easier to remove than new ones. 

Talk with Samantha at The Spa MD and she can let you know what to expect. You can typically achieve your desired results in 6-8 sessions. Each session is usually spaced about six weeks apart to give your skin the opportunity to process out the tattoo ink pigment between each treatment. 

You’re not stuck with your tattoos forever. To learn more about laser tattoo removal, call The Spa MD or make an appointment online today.
