How Tattoo Removal Works

The TRI-Beam Q-Switched Laser works by directing light energy into your skin. Different colored inks respond to different wavelengths of light, so your treatment will be customized for your specific goals and the specific tattoo you wish to have removed. The tattoo ink that is underneath the skin then absorbs the light energy, causing the ink particles to shatter into tiny pieces. Once the ink particles have been shattered, your body’s immune system works to eliminate them from your body.

How Many Laser Tattoo Removal Sessions Will I Need?

Depending on the color of pigment in your tattoo, the TRI-Beam Q-Switched Laser will deliver 1064 nm wavelength (for Blue/Black Tattoos and Permanent Makeup) or 532 nm (for Red tattoos).

Most tattoos will require more than one treatment, with Blue and Black based tattoos requiring upwards of three treatments. Treatments can be performed in 4 to 6-week intervals to ensure proper healing time.
