Tattoos are designed to last forever, but as more people have sought reversal of this deeply embedded ink, laser technology has kept pace with improved methods for safe and effective removal or lightening. Advanced laser technology, in the form of Q-switched and nanosecond lasers, safely penetrate the skin and target each tattoo ink color with specific wavelengths, causing tattoos to gradually fade during a course of 5 to 15 treatment sessions.
At Vivida we have two different lasers to treat tattoos:
- The Medlite C6 laser is a Q-switched laser features four wavelengths to target a wide range of colors, from blue, black and red, to orange.
- The PicoSure laser is a nanosecond laser that was a revolutionary discovery in effective laser treatment. Surgical Dermatology & Laser Center is the first Dermatology center in Las Vegas to offer the world’s only picosecond aesthetic laser for tattoo removal. This unprecedented advancement in laser technology safely and effectively erases tattoos with fewer treatments and better results. Even tattoos that have been treated previously but failed to clear can be removed with PicoSure’s patented PressureWave™ technology.
