Our dermatology center for tattoo removal in Kendall Lakes utilizes lasers that react with the ink in the tattoo, breaking it down. Once our equipment breaks down the ink, the body can the absorb it. This process mimics natural tattoo fading that occurs due to time and sun exposure.
Every tattoo pigment possesses specific light absorption spectra. For this reason, tattoo lasers must capably emit adequate energy within the pigment’s absorption spectrum to provide an effective treatment. Certain tattoo pigments provide a significant challenge during removal. For instance, yellows, greens, and fluorescent inks remain more difficult to remove than darker blacks or blues.
These pigments impart this difficulty due to absorption spectra that fall outside or on the edge of the emission spectra that a tattoo removal laser may provide. For this reason, patients often require repeat visits to our dermatology center for tattoo Removal in Kendall Lakes to fully remove a tattoo. Nevertheless, tattoo removal in Miami remains the gold-standard modality for full and complete removal.
Manufacturers also now produce a brank of ink called InfinitInk enabling easier tattoo removal with a singular laser treatment. However, patients may still require multiple treatments depending on their unique skin, as well as tattoo pigments.
