The laser produces pulses of intense light that penetrate the skin safely and breaks the tattoo pigment into microscopic particles that are then absorbed into the body and flushed out by the immune system.

The Alex TriVantage emits precise wavelengths of light that target the tattoo pigments, although some colors such as white, pink, greens and blues are very difficult to remove and may not completely fade away.

FAQ

HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL IT TAKE?

A professionally done tattoo could take as many a 6-15 treatments to completely remove. Home made tattoos can take less treatments as the ink is usually not as deep.

IS THE TREATMENT PAINFUL?

Treatments can be uncomfortable so we offer a topical numbing cream to apply prior to your appointment.
