Tattoo fading after treatment with laser

Midland Skin Cancer Center utilizes non-invasive laser and light therapy to reduce and diminish all kinds of unwanted pigment and discoloration. One of our most innovative aesthetic treatments that utilize this capability is tattoo removal.

Traditional tattoo removal requires many visits to the office to fully clear a tattoo of pigment. This is especially true for tattoos of darker color such as black or navy. The depth of a tattoo’s ink particles, the tattoo’s age, and the tattoo’s location also play a role in the complexity of removal. Our “enlighten” laser, however, features “dual pulse” durations and three unique laser wavelengths to break apart all colors, ink particle sizes, and densities/shading in fewer treatments.

Patients can still expect more than one visit, but this new technology offers optimal results in a faster and more effective way.
