How Laser Tattoo Removal Works

How does laser tattoo removal work?

Over the last ten years we have seen many advances in tattoo removal in Long Island, NY, most notably, the use of a laser to accomplish the job. Your laser technician will use a high-tech laser to effectively fade and remove the desired tattoo. Our state of the art lasers direct laser energy directly at your tattoo ink in short small repeated bursts in order to break up the ink and let your body harmlessly absorb it.  The laser energy does not affect your outer layer of skin, but only the parts where ink has been deposited. When the laser impacts the ink, the ink is broken up into small pieces, which are then safely absorbed by your body’s natural processes.

How much time does it take?

The time required for laser tattoo removal sessions is very short, and each treatment usually only lasts a matter of minutes. You don’t have to worry about blocking off huge time commitments–laser tattoo removal sessions can easily fit into your busy schedule, and is as easy and quick as running an errand.  Each treatment will fade the tattoo gradually, and most of our Long Island customers desire anywhere from 3 to 8 treatments.  In order to allow the body to effectively absorb the ink dispersed from each treatment, it is recommended to space each treatment about 4-6 weeks apart.

Is laser tattoo removal painful?

Generally, most long island laser tattoo removal clients explain the feeling of pain as being similar to a rubber band being snapped on their skin, which can be a bit uncomfortable but certainly bearable. As we work through the treatments, and in order to reduce discomfort and pain, we will cool the overlying skin with a cooling tool referred to as the Zimmer cooling system. We cool the skin before, at some point after the treatment, lowering the pain whilst reducing the thermal temperature. This cooling air makes the treatment as comfy as possible. We additionally use excessive strength numbing cream to decrease any soreness. Long Island Tattoo Removal Experts do everything in their power to make your session as painless as possible.

How many treatments are required?

As you can imagine, some people have small tattoos, and others have very large ones.  It depends on many factors of the tattoo itself, but generally, the normal person requires 3-7 treatments.
