Tattoo Removal Information

General Information

All the tattoo removal information you need!

Using the technological advancements, we can even treat the more challenging colors in your tattoo that in the past would have been impossible to remove.

Using PiQo4 laser technology, the vast majority of tattoos can be permanently eliminated.  Our team of laser professionals will consult with you, review the tattoo you wish to remove, and honestly advise you on the level of elimination that will be possible for your tattoo.

Things that will have an impact on your tattoo removal process are things like the about of ink present as well as the location of the tattoo on your body. When a tattoo is placed closer to the heart, it is in an area that will receive better blood circulation, and thus the ink will be carried away quicker.  So, in summary, yes, a tattoo on your chest will be eliminated faster than the same tattoo on say, your upper thigh.

During the tattoo removal process, you may experience redness, blistering, and possible scabbing, however, using the PiCo4 lasers, the laser pulse is so fast that the ink dissolving process is achieved without destroying live tissue. Coupling this technology with proper aftercare procedures ensures the absence of scaring.

For full tattoo removal, you should normally need about 10 – 12 treatments, however, if you are purely looking to fade a tattoo, this can be achieved in as little as 3 – 5 treatments.

These are some minor side effects you could expect:

  • Inflammation: there could be some mild swelling at the treatment site which should go away in a few days.
  • Blistering: Blisters can form after a few hours, but should disappear in 4 – 6 days with a good aftercare process.
  • Scabbing: this is common at teh treatment site, and is a natural part of the body’s healing process.

The PiCo4 laser tattoo removal process breaks down the larger ink particles into far smaller particles which the body’s white blood cells (your body’s immune system) are then able to carry away.

Laser Tattoo Removal Aftercare

Quicker Healing and Better Results

Following these guidelines will help your tattoo removal to heal faster and ensure healthy skin post treatment.

  • After treatment, keep your tattoo removal area clean and dry for at least 3 (three) days.

  • Apply an ointment like hydrocortisone cream which will assist in the reduction of inflammation, additionally, vitamin E oil can also heal damaged skin cells. At Begin Anew Med, we also have a range of dermatologist-recommended products which can assist in the healing process.

  • Do not pick or scratch at the area at all, this could result in scarring.  Should any larger blisters form, using a sterile lancet, you can poke a small hole to allow for the blister to drain, then use an antibacterial ointment or cream.

Laser Tattoo Removal Technology

How It Works

The combination different laser pulse durations provide an optimal method for shattering all sizes of pigment particles.

PiCo4 is the laser technology used to shatter the ink pigment.  It has 4 different wavelengths, 1064nm, 532nm, 650nm, and 585nm, which can target the most frequently used tattoo colors ranging from light orange to dark black. Find out more about PiCo4 here

Using the PiCo4 technology, very short, high-intensity light pulses are delivered to the area. These light pulses are then absorbed by the tattoo inks and pigments without damaging the normal skin tissues surrounding the area. The tattoo ink is then broken down into smaller ink particles that the body’s natural immune system can now remove naturally in the weeks after the treatment.

When the ink pigment in your tattoo absorbs the energy from the PiCo4 laser, it is shattered into many far smaller pieces of ink pigment.  Your body then naturally responds by moving fluid to the area to flush out these smaller ink particles.  This is a natural immune response by your body and will be obvious by some swelling and redness to the area. This flushing will continue over the next few weeks.
