What is tattoo removal?
Tattoo removal is an aesthetic treatment that gets rid of unwanted tattoos. You may have been told that your tattoo is permanent, but with advances in aesthetic technology, that’s no longer the case.
Renew Wellness is a state-of-the-art wellness and aesthetic practice that uses the most innovative tools to help patients get the look they desire. For tattoo removal, they use Harmony XL Pro.
This multiplication aesthetic system has a high-powered laser with two different wavelengths to treat dark (black and blue) and bright colors (orange, red, and yellow). The laser energy targets the ink under your skin, shattering it without causing any damage to your skin.
Over time, your body’s natural healing process removes the ink particles from the area.
What happens during tattoo removal?
Before starting any treatment, the team at Renew Wellness conducts a comprehensive initial consultation. During this visit, they examine your tattoo and review your medical history, then customize your tattoo removal plan.
During treatment, your provider uses the Harmony XL Pro laser tool to deliver intense beams of laser energy to your tattoo. Harmony XL Pro has a cooling system to minimize discomfort. If you’re sensitive to pain, the team may apply a local anesthetic to your skin to reduce discomfort.
The length of your treatment depends on the size of your tattoo. After your session, your provider applies an antibacterial gel to your skin and covers the treated tattoo with a bandage. They recommend you protect your treated skin from the sun to prevent complications.
Why do I need several tattoo removal treatments?
You need several tattoo removal treatments because tattoo artists place ink in layers. The color, size, location, and age of your tattoo helps the team determine the number of treatments you need to eliminate your tattoo.
Some people only need a few treatments, while others need several. The team usually schedules tattoo removal sessions every 2-4 weeks.
When can I expect results from tattoo removal?
Results from tattoo removal at Renew Wellness differ for each patient. You should see your tattoo turning lighter after each session.
The final results depend on the forms of ink used to make your tattoo. In general, brighter colors are harder to remove than darker colors.
