Hi, my name is Stella, I’m one of the senior therapists at Pulse Light Clinic, and today we’re going to demystify tattoo removal. Start Now

Myth #1: New tattoos are impossible to remove

This is actually not true. We can still remove any tattoos, but because they are new, they have not fully healed to the skin. Therefore, you may need more sessions, but we can still remove them.

Myth #2: Removing tattoos is too painful.

Again, it’s correct. So tattoo removal is actually a pain but, with the Pico technique it’s very fast If it’s too much for you, you can use a numbing cream but some people don’t need it. Okay, so

Myth #3: Removing a tattoo leaves a scar

This is actually incorrect. Pico technology does not affect the skin, so when you treat, the tattoo machine only targets the ink in the skin, so it does not affect your skin.

Therefore, your skin will remain intact and very safe. The only thing that can cause scarring is healing. So if you have friction as the scar heals, or you get blisters and you pop the blisters or scratch them, then you have scars but the tattoo machine doesn’t affect the skin at all.

Myth #4: I can get my tattoos removed in one session.

This is not correct.

Tattoos do exist in several layers of the skin, which is why you usually need a course of treatment.

Now, depending on the age of your tattoo, the color of the tattoo, and how well your body responds to the treatment, determines how many sessions you will need. But no, you can’t remove it in one session. Unfortunately, you need a course of treatment.

Myth #5: Removing a tattoo takes a long time.

So actually nanotechnology is very, very fast, Pico Technology is very fast, which basically means that the time it takes to get the tattoo removed is not the same as the time it took you to get the tattoo in the first place.

So depending on the size of your tattoo, you might be in the clinic for a minute, it might be as long as 30 minutes, depending on the size of the tattoo. But it’s very, very fast.

Myth #6: tattoo removal doesn’t work with all ink colors

So that’s partially true. So with Pico Technology we can do black, red, green, blue, purple, pink.

In some cases, we can handle yellow and orange, but not exactly, and the white ink will not come off. As far as tattoos go, it’s pretty much irremovable, however, for other colors we can deal. Okay, so it’s very important to consider that depending on your skin type and ink color, we may or may not remove your tattoo ink.

Myth #7: Tattoo Removal Cream Will Work

So tattoo removal cream, depending on what’s in it, won’t work on your skin for multiple reasons so it will be chemical based.

So all you’re really doing is damaging the surface of your skin.

Temporarily lightening the appearance of a tattoo may help, but tattoo ink sits deep in the skin, very, very deep. So anything you use on the surface won’t work.

Myth #8: You can’t completely remove a tattoo.

In some cases, you can have the tattoo removed completely. I have seen it myself.

However, you can achieve significantly lower levels. Basically, when you can’t see anything on the skin, you may see something called ghosting, which is essentially a stain on the skin, which is common when removing tattoos, depending on how old it is tattoo. Your tattoo depends on how good the results are going to be.

Myth #9: you can’t cover up old tattoos

You can cover all tattoos so if you remove tattoos to cover up, we can fade to the point where you can easily cover over With a previous tattoo, you won’t see residual ink underneath.

Myth #10: Tattoo removal is expensive

So it depends on the size of your tattoo and the quality of the machine, so the machine itself matters.

At Pulse Light Clinic, we only use medical grade machines.

We have PicoWay, we have PicoSure. It’s a better technique because it’s faster and more efficient. And, you’ll need far fewer sessions than you would with older techniques. So, yes, it might be more expensive. But you pay for the quality of the laser and the quality of the treatment.

It also ensures that your skin quality remains intact even after treatment. Okay, so that’s all the myths debunked today. However, if you have any other questions or concerns about laser tattoo removal please feel free to inquire via our website or give us a call, bye..
