5 Promising Laser Tattoo Removal Results After First Treatment

Laser tattoo removal takes time. It’s a hard truth, especially if you’re stuck with a tattoo on your body that you hate and you’re ready to get rid of it…yesterday. Removing tattoos is potentially very painful (unless the clinic you are at uses lidocaine) and most tattoos take 3-6 sessions for a complete removal, but some promising laser tattoo removal results can be seen after the first treatment. If you’re just looking for your tattoo to be lightened enough for a cover-up, then, depending on the depth, age and color of your tattoo, you may be happy with the laser tattoo removal results after your first treatment.

At The Untattoo Parlor, we specialize in laser tattoo removal, using advanced Picosecond laser technology for the fastest and most effective laser removal possible. This laser technology fades tattoos quickly for some of the best laser tattoo removal results after first treatment.

What Is The Most Effective Tattoo Removal Method?

There are a few different options out there for removing your unwanted tattoos, ranging from the cringe-worthy to the clinical. The internet is full of at-home tattoo removal techniques, and tips to make your tattoos fade. And while some of these techniques may provide results, the honest truth is that not all of them are equally as effective.

Processes such as dermabrasion and salabrasion, remove tattoos by sanding down or removing the top layer of tattooed skin. This is somewhat effective in that it literally removes the tattoo along with the skin, but it also takes quite a few repeated sessions (more than necessary for effective laser tattoo removal) and often leaves a scar behind after the skin heals. Other potential at home tattoo removal options include tattoo removal creams and natural topical applications, which provide varied results, but are often more effective at fading rather than eliminating the tattoo altogether.

So, what is the most effective tattoo removal method?

If you want the most effective tattoo removal experience, we highly recommend going to a professional clinic that uses a tattoo removal laser for your tattoo removal needs. We have to mention that not all tattoo removal lasers are made equal, however. Older-style Q-Switch lasers function in nanoseconds, whereas picosecond lasers function at picosecond speeds and are faster and more effective, delivering pulses of light at a trillionth of a second. This difference in speed is what makes the picosecond laser the most effective tattoo removal method, by breaking up the pigment in the tattooed skin faster and into smaller particles that can be removed by the body more quickly.

At The UnTattoo Parlor, we use two different picosecond lasers, the Enlighten Cutera and a PicoSure laser, to eliminate all ink colors from your tattoo. This is the most comprehensive combination of lasers, tools and talent for tattoo removal in Oregon.

Is There Actually Such A Thing As “Easy Tattoo Removal”?

Tattoos are a form of permanent body modification, in which ink is inserted under the dermis using needles in order to change the pigment or color of the skin. We love tattoos (no really!), but the permanence of this process is what makes removing tattoos so notoriously difficult. In order to remove an unwanted tattoo the pigmented skin must either be removed, or the pigment must be broken up and then processed by the body with the help of special laser technology.

That makes the search for an easy tattoo removal process a bit tricky. But the good news is while it might sound intimidating, modern laser tattoo removal isn’t really all that complicated. At The UnTattoo Parlor, we use two cutting edge lasers, each targeting a specific range of light, that specialize in breaking up pigments in a range of colors. Because these lasers are designed for tattoo removal, they target only the pigmented skin and leave untattooed skin alone, providing more effective results without damage.

While there may not be such a thing as “easy tattoo removal”, the process of tattoo removal is pretty simple itself. Once you schedule your consultation, we will meet with you, evaluate the tattoo and provide a treatment plan. Most people need a few treatments and we usually recommend 1-3 treatments for lightening, and 3-6 for a complete removal. The process is pretty simple, and relatively painless. Our goal is to offer the best service possible while helping you to get back to that clean canvas for your next art.
