 Tattoo Removal


This procedure uses laser light to break up the ink particles that form a tattoo, gradually lightening the appearance of the tattoo and eventually causing it to fade away completely. Typically, multiple treatments are required. The number of treatments depends on the skin type, age and color of the tattoo.
