Tattoo Removal

Laser tattoo removal is a medical procedure that utilizes laser technology to break down and eliminate tattoo ink from the skin. This non-invasive treatment method uses specific wavelengths of light that target the ink particles, causing them to shatter into tiny fragments.


  1. Consultation: The process begins with a consultation with our trained laser technician. During this consultation, the specialist will examine the tattoo, assess its size, colors, and location, and evaluate your skin type to determine the most appropriate laser treatment plan for you. They will also discuss the expected outcomes, potential risks, and any necessary precautions.
  2. Preparation: On the day of the procedure, the area to be treated will be cleaned, and the specialist may apply a topical anesthetic cream to numb the skin and minimize discomfort during the treatment. They will also provide you with protective eyewear to shield your eyes from the laser light.
  3. Laser treatment: The specialist will use a handheld laser device that emits high-intensity laser beams targeted at the tattooed area. The laser emits light energy in short pulses, which is selectively absorbed by the tattoo pigments.
  4. Tattoo pigment breakdown: When the laser light reaches the tattoo ink, it heats up and breaks the pigment into smaller fragments. The light energy is absorbed by the ink particles, causing them to shatter into tiny fragments while leaving the surrounding skin largely unaffected. The body's immune system then recognizes these smaller ink particles as foreign substances and gradually eliminates them over time.
  5. Multiple sessions: Tattoo removal typically requires multiple treatment sessions to achieve the best results. The number of sessions needed depends on various factors, including the size, color, depth, and age of the tattoo, as well as individual factors such as skin type and the body's response to the treatment. Sessions are usually scheduled several weeks apart to allow the skin to heal between treatments.
  6. Post-treatment care: After each session, the treated area may be sensitive, swollen, and slightly blistered. The specialist will provide instructions on how to care for the treated area, which may include applying antibiotic ointment, keeping the area clean, avoiding direct sunlight, and avoiding activities that may irritate the skin.

It's important to note that laser tattoo removal may cause some discomfort, and the sensation can vary depending on individual pain tolerance and the location of the tattoo. Some people compare it to the feeling of a rubber band being snapped against the skin. The use of numbing creams and cooling techniques can help minimize discomfort during the procedure.

Additionally, it's worth mentioning that complete tattoo removal may not always be possible, particularly for certain ink colors, such as light pastels or fluorescent dyes, which may be more challenging to remove. The effectiveness of laser tattoo removal also depends on factors like the quality of the tattoo ink and the depth at which it was injected into the skin.

Overall, laser tattoo removal is a widely used and effective method for gradually fading and removing unwanted tattoos. However, it's essential to consult with a qualified professional to assess your specific situation and determine the best approach for you.


The Q-switched YAG laser is a type of laser technology used in medical and cosmetic procedures. The MedLite machine is one brand that utilizes this technology. Here's an explanation of the Q-switched YAG laser and its functions:

  1. Q-Switching: The "Q" in Q-switched stands for "quality factor," which refers to the energy stored in the laser cavity. Q-switching is a technique that involves creating short, high-energy laser pulses by manipulating the quality factor of the laser. It allows the laser to deliver energy in extremely short bursts, typically in the nanosecond range.
  2. YAG Laser: YAG stands for "yttrium aluminum garnet," which is the crystal used in the laser's active medium. YAG lasers operate in the near-infrared spectrum (wavelength of 1064 nanometers) and are known for their ability to penetrate deep into the skin.
  3. Laser Application: The Q-switched YAG laser has various applications in medical and cosmetic procedures. It is commonly used for:
  4. Tattoo Removal: The laser energy targets the tattoo ink particles, breaking them down into smaller fragments that can be eliminated by the body's immune system.
  5. Pigmented Lesion Treatment: The laser can effectively treat pigmented lesions such as age spots, freckles, and melasma. The laser energy is absorbed by the excess melanin in the skin, causing it to fragment and fade over time.
  6. Skin Rejuvenation: The laser can stimulate collagen production in the skin, leading to improved skin texture, reduced wrinkles, and a more youthful appearance.
  7. Hair Removal: The laser energy can target and damage the hair follicles, inhibiting their ability to regrow hair.
  8. MedLite Machine: MedLite is a well-known brand that manufactures Q-switched YAG laser machines. The MedLite machine utilizes the Q-switched YAG laser technology to deliver precise, high-energy laser pulses for various dermatological treatments.
  9. Advantages: The Q-switched YAG laser technology offers several advantages, including:
  10. Precision: The laser pulses can be controlled and adjusted to target specific areas without causing damage to the surrounding tissues.
  11. Versatility: The laser can treat a wide range of skin conditions, including tattoos of various colors, pigmented lesions, and unwanted hair.
  12. Minimal Downtime: The short pulses minimize heat build-up in the skin, reducing the risk of side effects and allowing for faster recovery.

Laser tattoo removal is a medical procedure that uses lasers to break down and remove unwanted tattoos from the skin. It is considered one of the most effective methods for removing tattoos, particularly those that are difficult to remove through other means such as creams, lotions, or dermabrasion.

It may take 6+ sessions to fully remove a body-tattoo.
