There are many different methods of tattoo removal on the market today. A quick search on the internet will pull up creams, surgeries, lasers, and DIY methods. Many methods market themselves as being cheap, fast or painless.
Tattoo removal has been around for a long time and there are a few things that we know about it. We know that tattoo creams don’t work. We know that DIY methods don’t work. We know that surgery is invasive and may leave a scar. Finally, we know that lasers are the best way to effectively remove ink.
Lasers work by breaking the ink into smaller particles so that it is able to be flushed out of the body. There are many different lasers on the market to choose from. We use the Astanza Trinity Laser system, which is a combination of two lasers: a Ruby laser and an Nd:YAG laser.
Ruby lasers are best for treating resistant colors such as resistant blacks, some shades of green and teals. Sometimes black ink is actually deeply pigmented green. This type of ink responds very well to the Ruby laser.
Each tattoo is pigmented differently and successful removal often requires the use of more than one laser. It is important that the tattoo clinic you choose has a variety of lasers in their arsenal. During your free consultation Dr. Brotzman will determine the initial laser type and setting to best remove your tattoo.
