*Individual results may vary.
A: The Medlite laser removes tattoos with specialized light which is absorbed by the tattoo ink. The rapid absorption of the laser energy causes the tattoo ink to break into tiny particles which is then removed by the body’s natural filtering system.
A. It can remove both professional, amateur (homemade), traumatic and surgical tattoos. However it is not recommend for use on permanent eyeliner or lipstick.
A. The number of treatments depends on the amount and type of ink used, and also the depth of the ink in the skin. However most patients require between 8 to 12 treatments for adequate results.
A. Dark blue, black and red inks will resolve the best. Oranges and purples usually fade as well. Green and yellow inks are the most difficult to remove, and additional treatments are needed to produce significant fading.
A. In many cases, yes. Greater than 95% fading of the tattoo may be accomplished. However, it is important to know that there are many types of tattoo inks in use today, none of which is regulated by the FDA. Not knowing which tattoo ink was used, or how deeply it was applied, makes it impossible to predict the degree of removal on any given tattoo.
A. The treated area should be kept clean. Scabbing may form, and if so, should not be picked or scratched.
A. The specialized light produced by the Medlite is absorbed by melanin pigment found within the brown spot (eg: age and liver spots, birthmarks).
A. Most pigmented lesions are removed within 1 to 3 treatments. Some deeper lesions require more treatments.
A. The laser is applied with pulses lasting micro-seconds. Sometimes it is accompanied by a short burst of Freon type substance or other freezing agent shortly before to minimize pain. It takes about 180 pulses for a small tattoo the size of a box of matches. You will wear glasses protect your eyes. It is really quite simple.
A. The treatment area will be swollen, red and very tender. It is really like a burn. Blisters may form. Do not pick at the skin, let it heal naturally. You will ice it down for the first 24 hours and thereafter for comfort. It will crust up and eventually fall off. In the months ahead your body will dispose of the cracked ink by its normal waste disposal protocol.
A. You will notice some gradual fading over the course of anywhere from few weeks to 8 months. It is so gradual that you may not think that it was a waste of time and money. That is the purpose of the before photos. It takes the body time to dispose of the broken ink particles.
A. Minor burns from defective machinery and/or unskilled technicians are possible as well as infection (although very unlikely) of the scabbed areas.
A. You can go out in the sun after a treatment as long as it is covered from the sun. However, sun exposure before full recovery could severely damage your skin. Do not expose your treatment area to the sun for at least 2 weeks, and even then, apply sun block. The laser literally evaporated some of the layers of skin in the process so you will have little natural protection.
