About Laser Tattoo Removal
Tattoo permanency is one of the biggest attractions and downfalls of getting inked. Although tattoos are meant to be permanent, this design poses a problem for many. Whether you no longer identify with your tattoo or have come to regret your tattoo decision, laser tattoo removal is the ultimate solution for getting rid of unwanted ink.
This noninvasive procedure is widely regarded as the safest, most effective solution for removing unwanted tattoos and fading tattoos for cover-ups. Unlike other removal methods, laser tattoo removal uses laser technology to safely penetrate deep into the skin without harming the surrounding tissue or causing scarring.
The Natural Fading Process
So why are tattoos permanent? When a tattoo is applied, large ink particles are embedded deep in the skin’s dermis layer. Immediately upon insertion, your immune system is alerted and begins working to remove the foreign particles. However, the ink particles are much too large to be absorbed and removed by your body’s immune cells, so they remain trapped in the dermis.
Despite this, your body continuously attempts to remove the foreign particles, grazing away small pieces of ink over time. This explains the natural fading process of tattoos and why ink slowly fades and loses color over time.
How Laser Tattoo Removal Works
Laser tattoo removal essentially fast forwards the natural fading process by breaking up the large ink particles into shattered fragments. During a treatment, our laser shoots flashes of light energy onto the unwanted tattoo. The large ink particles absorb the laser’s energy, heat up, and shatter into tiny fragmented particles that are easier for your body to naturally clear away.
Because tattoos are made up of varying layers of ink, virtually every tattoo will require multiple treatments. Each laser session shatters the shallowest layer of ink and works its way down, breaking up the ink particles into smaller fragments with each treatment and effectively speeding up the fading process until no ink is left in the skin.
A minimum of 6 to 8 weeks is required between each treatment to give your skin time to heal and avoid any possibility of overtreating or damaging the skin. Deleted Scene uses an advanced FDA-approved laser and customized protocols to deliver the best results throughout Hatboro.
Our Laser Technology
Deleted Scene is committed to great results. In order to deliver the absolute best treatment experience and outcome, we have invested in the cutting-edge Astanza Duality laser.
The Astanza Duality is an industry-leading Q-switched Nd:YAG laser that is trusted by leading laser practitioners, tattoo shops, physicians, and tattoo removal practices worldwide. Deleted Scene is thrilled to deliver the safest, fastest, and most successful tattoo removal results in Hatboro thanks to this superior device.
The Duality emits energy through two essential wavelengths: 1064 nm and 532 nm. Together, these wavelengths target a wide variety of tattoo ink colors and are safe to use on all skin types, even darker skin types IV through VI.
Thanks to TruePower™ technology, the Duality delivers maximum transference and optimal production of energy to achieve intense levels of power for optimal ink shattering. The Duality’s ultra-fast pulse duration at 6,000 picoseconds and high pulse energy also produce strong peak power for faster, better ink clearance in fewer treatments.
Furthermore, the Duality’s safety features ensure all patients are treated with the utmost care. Featuring a large square spot and flat-top homogenized beam, the Duality supports deeper penetration into the skin where ink particles reside, minimized light scattering to surrounding tissue, reduced treatment overlap, even energy distribution, and unwanted risks of side effects.
