Today, the majority of tattoos are applied with a tattoo gun and are deeply embedded into the skin’s dermis, the deepest layer of skin. Immediately after the ink is inserted, your body recognizes the ink particles as foreign substances and continuously tries to remove them from your skin. This is one of the reasons why all tattoos gradually fade and lose color over time. However, most of the ink particles are too large to be eliminated naturally and remain trapped in the dermis, leaving the design permanently etched in your skin.
Unlike other methods of removal, laser tattoo removal is widely regarded as the most effective method for getting rid of tattoos. Other methods like salabrasion, dermabrasion, and excision require scraping or cutting of the skin in order to reach the dermis and successfully remove all of the trapped ink particles. These methods can be dangerous, painful, and almost always result in scarring. Only advanced laser tattoo removal can safely, and non invasively, penetrate deep enough into the skin without causing any harm to surrounding skin tissue.
Better Technology, Better Results
Here at InkAway, all treatments are personally performed by or under the supervision of our medical director Dr. Donna Giantonio, so you can expect the highest level of care and expertise. All of our laser technicians were carefully selected for their professionalism, service, and dedication to the procedure. We use the most advanced lasers to eliminate your tattoo with fast and with minimal side effects. During your treatment, a laser technician will direct ultra-short pulses of light energy from our Astanza Trinity laser onto your unwanted ink. Each pulse of light energy is absorbed by the ink particles, causing them to shatter into tiny fragments that are small enough for your immune system to flush out. Over a series of treatments, you will see your tattoo gradually fade until no traces of ink are left in your skin.
Our laser is state-of-the-art and will deliver fast ink clearance for your skin. To get the best results, we’ll discuss aftercare with you at your appointment. The laser breaks up the ink, but your body’s immune system does the rest of the work, flushing out the broken-up ink from your skin. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, staying hydrated, and keeping the area protected are important things you can do to achieve the fastest possible removal. We’ll work with you to ensure the best, natural-looking results.
