Having second thoughts?
TREATMENT THAT WORKS WITH YOUR BODY
Maybe it’s that spontaneous idea to get matching tattoos that seemed like a good idea at the time, or that tattoo you got many years ago and you’re now wondering why you have a lizard on your arm. Whatever your reason is – we’re here to help you pretend it never happened! At Serene Radiance Laser Centre in Edmonton, we use the best technology to permanently remove tattoos, or simply lighten them if you’re looking to cover it up with a different tattoo.
WE LOVE OUR ND:YAG TATTOO REMOVAL
Nd:YAG tattoo removal is the ideal tool for effectively removing black, complex and multi-coloured tattoos. Our multi-wavelength, Q-Switched laser system is uniquely able to produce very short pulses of light. This light will pass harmlessly through the top layers of skin to break apart the ink in your tattoo.
WHY ND:YAG TATTOO REMOVAL?
Our tattoo laser technology generates single nanosecond pulses, which is more efficient at removing coloured tattoos, than older technologies with multiple-pulse technologies. An average of 8-12 treatments is recommended and sometimes 12-15+ treatments are needed for multi-coloured tattoos. These treatments are done every 6-8 weeks to achieve the best results. A tattoo must be at least 3 months old prior to having tattoo removal treatments.
HOW DOES TATTOO REMOVAL WORK?
During a laser tattoo removal procedure, the practitioner guides a laser over the area of the tattoo. Unlike a laser pointer that produces a continuous beam of light, tattoo removal lasers produce pulses of light energy.
Each pulse of energy penetrates the skin and is absorbed by the tattoo ink. As the tattoo ink particles absorb the energy, they heat up and then shatter into tiny fragments. Then, over the weeks following treatment, the body’s immune system flushes the tattoo ink particles away from the location, lightening the appearance of the tattoo. Each laser treatment breaks down more and more of the tattoo ink until none remains.
