Tattoos are created using insoluble ink that is injected into the middle layer of skin; they are long lasting because the pigment is not able to be absorbed by the body. Using FDA-approved lasers, Trinity Med Spa emits concentrated beams of laser light to penetrate the outer layers of the skin. The laser light targets the pigmented ink, breaking the ink into tiny particles, which is then naturally absorbed into the body.
There are many factors that determine the number of laser tattoo removal treatments needed to effectively reduce the appearance of tattoos. The age of the tattoo, overall size, color and type of ink used are considered when determining the most effective treatment plan.
Laser tattoo removal treatments are generally spaced four to six weeks apart, depending on how quickly the skin absorbs the pigment.
