“Regert” Your Tattoo? Here’s the Solution

Do you have a tattoo that just doesn’t sit well with you anymore? Maybe it reminds you of an old love or a night that you had too much fun. Or it could just be something that you don’t want on your body any longer. No matter what the reason, Synergy Face + Body can help. We are proud to offer laser tattoo removal with the TRI-Beam Q-Switched Laser from Perigee to give your skin a fresh, blank canvas. So, how does it work, is it safe, and does it hurt? Let’s dive in and explore some of the most asked questions about our laser tattoo removal system.



How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?

Laser tattoo removal with the TRI-Beam Q-Switched Laser works by targeting the colored ink in your body. Blue and black ink take longer to remove than other colors, so tattoos with those darker colors could take around three treatments to remove. The light energy from the laser goes directly into your skin, and the ink that is under your skin absorbs the light energy. This process destroys the ink particles. Over time, your body will naturally eliminate these particles, and you will be left with clearer skin. Most patients require multiple treatment sessions, which can be performed in four- to six-week intervals to ensure proper healing time between removal sessions.

Is Laser Tattoo Removal Safe for Everyone?

At Synergy Face + Body, we use the TRI-Beam Q-Switched Laser, which is a laser that has certain qualifications before use. A consultation with our specialists is required and will determine whether or not you are a suitable candidate for laser tattoo removal. However, patients with a tan (whether real or fake) are not eligible for this treatment. After determining that you are a candidate, you will be given a personalized treatment plan according to your goals and desires for your tattoo removal.

Does Laser Tattoo Removal Hurt?

It truly depends on your pain tolerance and what location on the body the treatment is being performed. However, some patients report minimal pain, like snapping a rubber band on your arm. For your comfort during the treatment, you will be given a topical numbing cream. Patients will also have personal access to PRO-NOX™ for an added fee. PRO-NOX™ is a pain-reduction gas that combines nitrous oxide and oxygen to relieve pain quickly. This gas can be inhaled through a mouthpiece until you feel like you are in a comfortable state. 

Do not live with regret or be uncomfrotable in your skin for longer than you have to be. Schedule your consultation with Synergy Face + Body!
