What is laser tattoo removal?

Laser tattoo removal is a medical technique that removes tattoos using lasers. The laser delivers very short picosecond energy pulses. These pulses target the tattoo’s color pigments and break them down into micro-fragments. The body then naturally and progressively eliminates these particles.

Thanks to the Picosure laser from Cynosure, black, blue, green, and violet inks can be effectively treated. Furthermore, all skin phototypes are eligible for laser tattoo removal, and all body areas can be treated.

Why opt for tattoo removal?

There are many reasons why someone might seek to remove their tattoo. It could be simply because:

  • You no longer feel in harmony with your tattoo.
  • Skin aging often leads to skin sagging. The original appearance of the tattoo changes and is no longer aesthetically pleasing.
  • A new job is not compatible with your tattoo.
  • If you have just gotten a tattoo, it is necessary to wait at least one month before considering its removal. The skin is still raw in the weeks following the tattooing. The healing process must be complete, as it can affect the effectiveness of the laser used for tattoo removal.

How to remove a tattoo at Skin Marceau?

Removing a laser tattoo is a medical procedure that must be performed by a trained doctor for safe treatment and optimal outcomes.

The session lasts between 10 and 20 minutes, because the Picosure laser has the specificity of delivering particularly powerful beams to treat large areas quickly.

The number of sessions needed to get rid of your tattoo is determined during your consultation. This situation depends on the size of the tattoo, its depth, its color and its age . The removal of tattoo fragments also takes a variable time, depending on the patient.

At Skin Marceau, we recommend an average of 6 to 8 tattoo removal sessions to permanently remove a tattoo .

Am I a good candidate for laser tattoo removal?

We check your terrain, your history and your medication intake before establishing a treatment protocol.

Aftermath of laser tattoo removal

Following your tattoo removal session , the skin is red and slight swelling may occur. These post-treatment symptoms are temporary and fade after a few days.

You will be able to resume your daily activities immediately, no social eviction is necessary.

Is tattoo removal painful?

Like many laser treatments, you may feel a slight heat as the device flashes on the skin. This moderate pain can be reduced by applying a topical anesthetic before the session.

Are the results of tattoo removal permanent?

The results are appreciable following the healing of the skin . They are visible progressively and final.

It is possible to keep a residual scar after the end of the treatment, hence the importance of calling on a trained dermatologist.
