Renew Your Canvas
You don’t have to put up with that tattoo you’ve outgrown! Advanced Life Clinic offers you state-of-the-art solutions for permanent tattoo removal of your unwanted tattoos. At Advanced Life Clinic, we rely on the PicoSure System to safely and effectively remove ink and pigmented lesions from your skin. It provides the safest, most comfortable treatment available with impressive results.
The most common method of making a tattoo is with an electrically powered tattoo machine. The machines are fit with a single needle or many needles that can puncture the skin between 80 to 150 times per second. The needles create a puncture wound and deposit tiny dots of insoluble ink into the dermal-epidermal junction of the skin. These dots of dispersed pigment come together to make the tattoo image.
The Spectrum of Ingredients
The FDA does not regulate the ingredients of pigmented dyes used by a tattoo artist, so synthetic pigments and colorants can widely vary from industrial organics to minerals to plastic-based compounds. For example, most black pigments and permanent cosmetic inks will contain carbon or iron oxides and most blue pigments will contain copper salts or cobalt oxides, while other inks contain titanium dioxide or zinc oxide.
Fade to Vanish
The PicoSure laser platform uses an arsenal of light-based wavelengths that are specifically attracted to tattoos ink. To clear the ink from your skin, the laser system creates a collimated energy beam of light. The light passes through your outer skin layers, targeting only the embedded ink. Energy from the laser is rapidly absorbed by the ink, causing the pigment to fracture into microscopic particles. Over time, the body’s immune system will clean the particles from the skin, causing the tattoo to fade and eventually disappear.
The PicoSure system contains specific technical advantages for removing a wide variety of tattoos. These range from professional to homemade or amateur, as well as traumatic and surgical tattoos. We will be happy to assess your tattoo(s) and discuss the treatment in detail with you during a no-cost, no-obligation consultation.
Tattoo Removal Sensation
Most patients report that the treatment sensation for removing a tattoo is similar to the one for getting tattoos. Other patients say the laser tattoo removal treatment feels like a rubber band snapping against the skin. However, we do offer an optional pro-nox (nitrous/oxide) system to help the procedure become more comfortable.
Protect, Heal, and Partner
An anti-bacterial ointment and ice will need to be applied. If a scab forms, it is vital that the area is never picked or scratched in order to avoid scarring. We know that tattoo removal can be confusing and sometimes overwhelming. Our hope is that you too have the same level of commitment to reach your tattoos removal goal. We are in this partnership together and we will succeed as a team. A free consultation with our aesthetic staff can help design a treatment plan specific to your lifestyle and needs.
