At Olam Med Spa, we use the Spectrum Q-Switched YAG laser device for our tattoo removal in Pembroke Pines. This is the most commonly used type of laser used for removing tattoos and has been the number one option of medical professionals for more than 20 years.
During the procedure, you will have to wear an eye shield in order to protect your eyes from the laser. Then, the tattooed area on your skin is numbed by applying a local anesthetic. Your medical provider customizes the settings on the device and brings the head of the device close to your skin, allowing intense light energy to be delivered in a single, powerful pulse.
The light energy penetrates the skin, shatters the tattoo ink, and dissolves it over time until the tattoo eventually fades from view. The surrounding tissue is unharmed by the laser, thanks to its high precision.
The procedure for laser tattoo removal can be uncomfortable, and you will feel mild to moderate pain, but not unbearable. In fact, it will be less painful than getting your tattoo.
