REMOVE OR FADE YOUR TATTOO IN LESS TIME WITH NANO AND PICO

We use a combination of 2 laser technologies to provide our patients with the most advanced treatment available in Calgary.

Recent advancements in tattoo laser technology has introduced the concepts of nanosecond lasers (billionths of a second) and picosecond lasers (trillionths of a second) into the minds of those looking to have their tattoo treated. There are advantages with both technologies and it can be confusing when looking into laser tattoo removal for the first time.

Start your tattoo removal at Westside Laser & Light and reduce your total number of treatments by half. The average number of treatments is about 5 to remove all ink with the combination of nano and pico second lasers.

WHICH TECHNOLOGY IS BETTER FOR MY TATTOO?

It turns out, the answer is both and it has to do primarily with the ink-particle size.

Larger sized ink-particles need to first be broken down into smaller ones so that the body can eliminate them efficiently. The analogy is:

Rocks need to be broken down to pebbles before they can be turned into sand.

Larger ink particles need to absorb the laser energy more slowly than smaller ink particles so a nanosecond laser is used first. Following nanosecond treatment, a picosecond laser is used to break down the smaller remaining ink-particles.

This combination has been proven to be optimal and can reduce the overall time to remove a tattoo by half.

Whether you are looking to remove a tattoo completely or just want to fade the ink enough for a new design, the Laser Tattoo Removal Clinic at Westside Laser & Light can provide you with the safety and comfort you need.

We offer a free consultation where we will evaluate your tattoo and explain the treatment process to you.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?

The total number of treatments required depends on a number of factors including:

  • color(s), amount, depth and type of ink(s)
  • location on body
  • physical attributes of the individual

Combination treatment with nano and pico second technologies can reduce the overall number of treatments required for total removal of ink.

On average, 4-6 treatments in total is required for total removal of all ink.

Keeping in mind the above factors, the range of treatments is typically 3-7 treatments with some coming off with just 1-2 treatments. These are typically amateur tattoos or simple black tattoos. More treatments are typical with full, deep-pigmented pieces. The location on the body and multiple colors of inks used can also account for more treatments.

Laser treatment is performed usually every 8 weeks. Avoid sun exposure before and after treatment. Restrictions on certain activities including exercise, swimming/hot tubs after treatment.
