East Bay Laser Tattoo Removal – RevLite Laser Tattoo Removal

As we get age, our lives transform. We become parents, discover new possibilities, and join the workforce. Regrettably tattoo’s never change, and for many of us, there comes a time when we grow out of or begin to regret our tattoos. Fortuantely, there are many options to safely and successfully remove your tattoos, including the very latest in laser tattoo removal – the RevLite laser by ConBio.

The Revlite is 60 % more effective than most other lasers and approximately twice as fast. Tattoos that typically take 10 to 12 treatments for removal can now be eliminated in just 6 to 8 treatments. RevLite clears all colors and treats all skin types, leaving no residual “ghost” images as with previous laser technology.

LASER TATTOO REMOVAL WITH THE NEW REVLITE LASER

The RevLite exhibits the latest advancement in tattoo removal. It’s the very first tattoo removal laser to offer numerous wavelengths to choose from; meaning that when you come to our center, we can utilize the best wavelength that is absorbed by a specific color ink, thereby tailoring the treatment for each of your specific tattoos.

In addition, the RevLite laser’s pulse rate is significantly faster, allowing for a lot faster treatments that is safer and less painful for the patient. The laser operates by breaking the ink in your tattoo down into tiny particles, which are then steadily removed by the body’s natural filtering systems. With the enhancement of the RevLite tattoo removal laser into our Walnut Creek dermatology practice, we can now safely, comfortably and successfully clear stubborn tattoos in fewer treatment sessions.

Professional tattoos, on average, require six to eight or more treatments, while amateur tattoos require four or more sessions due to the different types of ink used. Treatments are usually spaced a few weeks apart, giving the body time to remove the ink particles and get ready for the next treatment.

EAST BAY LASER TATTOO REMOVAL

With the use of the RevLite laser, you should anticipate to obtain greater than 95 percent fading. The number of procedure sessions you will need relies on the quality and depth of your tattoo application, the type of ink used in your tattoo, the color used and the length of time between each treatment. The longer you wait between treatments the fewer treatment it will take. India ink tattoos are the easiest to remove with laser treatments, and red and black the easiest colors. Yellow, green and blue colors are a bit more difficult to remove, and may call for more treatments sessions.

The Procedure

Laser tattoo removal starts with administering a topical anesthetic. Your tattoo is then treated with the suitable laser wavelenth depending on the tattoo color. During the procedure, your skin will turn white over the treated tattoo area, and you may encounter some bleeding. After treatment, you will apply a special ointment and the area will be bandaged. The skin typically heals within one week while most of the ink that was broken into smaller fragments is slowly absorbed by your body over the next 4-8 weeks. The tattoo may continue to lighten for several months after a treatment.
