With laser technology, there is no such thing as a permanent tattoo. The Medlite® laser is considered to be one of the premier lasers for tattoo removal, working to penetrate the skin and destroy tattoo ink using pulses of laser energy to break the ink down into tiny particles. These ink particles are then gradually filtered out by the body. The procedure is customized for the individual, and has proven extremely effective on a variety of skin tones and ink colors. Multiple treatment sessions are necessary to completely eradicate the appearance of the tattoo.
