Why is Body Bar Laser Clinic the best place to remove my tattoo?
Body Bar is proud to offer the latest technology in laser tattoo removal. Because we’re not a spa or a salon, we get you. We understand that the reason you got your tattoo is as personal as the reason you now want it removed. As a medical laser clinic we offer medical grade lasers.
How does laser tattoo removal work?
Using the Candela Q-Swithched Alex Trivantage Laser, the best laser available, a laser pulse is aimed at the tattoo and passes harmlessly through the skin. The laser targets the tattoo pigment, leaving the surrounding skin virtually untouched. The energy from the beam is transferred to the ink which breaks into small particles and is removed from the body by the immune system. For a more detailed explanation please book a complimentary consultation.
Who will do the removal?
The laser tattoo removal will be performed by a licensed laser technician who is trained and certified, specifically for this type of procedure by an accredited laser school and secondly has been trained by the laser distributor on the specific machine being used.
How many treatments will it take to remove my tattoo?
This is our most commonly asked question and the hardest to answer without seeing the tattoo, that is why we offer a FREE consultation to give you all the information you need to make your decision. There are many factors that contribute to the number of sessions required to remove your tattoo. The factors involved include: skin type, location, colours, amount of ink, scarring and tissue change as well as the layering of tattoos.
How long do I need to wait between treatments?
Generally for the first few sessions we space them out about 4-6 weeks and the remaining sessions about 6-8 weeks for the body to remove the ink and to completely heal the area.
Can you remove 100% of every tattoo?
We wish we could, but anyone who tells you otherwise is trying to sell you a service they cannot provide. We can remove most tattoos 100%, but unfortunately not all. It depends on many factors (see “How many treatments will it take to remove my tattoo?” answer above). In addition, there are many, many types of tattoo inks in use worldwide today, none of which are regulated by the FDA.
That being said, Body Bar Laser Clinic can remove more tattoos and colors than others because of our Candela Alex TriVantage Q-Switched Laser. The Alex TriVantage is a Q-switched laser platform which combines a Nd:YAG Laser with an Alexandrite. Providing all three Laser wavelengths (1064 nm / 532 nm / 755 nm) achieves the highest possible energies, effectively targeting all tattoo colors including blues and greens.
This is why we provide a FREE consultation so you know all the facts before you start the process. We want to ensure you have all the information you need to make the right decision for you.
Will it hurt?
Because we are the tattoo removal experts, and we do many every day, we make sure to make the process is as painless as possible. We can adjust the speed in which the laser is delivered for our clients preference. We also recommend emla 5% to numb the skin before treatment. We do not use ice as we have found that it makes the treatment less effective.
Our certified laser techs will make sure that you have the best experience with the removal.
Will it scar?
The chances of scarring are very small (less than 5%) if all the after-care instructions are followed. These include:
For the first 24 hours – Apply ice if you feel discomfort and avoid the sun and swimming.
After the first 24 hours – Keep the area clean and out of the sun for the time while it is healing.
