Our laser tattoo removal machine can be used to:
I alternate the laser with ice to minimize discomfort. Most people expect it to be worse than it is. It is over before you can say even say "ouch"!.
The laser feels like a really quick, elastic band.
You can pre-numb yourself with Emla, Zensa, or similar, prior to arriving if you like but it is not necessary.
Depending on the settings used and the pigment that was previously used, it is possible that the laser tattoo removal will make the brow appear red. For some people this is temporary and removable with a different setting at the next session. For others, the red will be stubborn and take more time to lighten.
Why does this happen?
Shades of brown pigment are made of mixing varying amounts of RED + YELLOW + BLACK. So when the laser removes the black, red and yellow remain but they can be targeted at the following session.
The number of sessions needed depends on skin type, the location of the tattoo, how many colors were used, how deep it is, and how many layers of pigment are in the skin.
Skin Type: lighter skin types (where the tattoo is highly contrasted) will require less sessions than darker skin types.
Location: The fastest tattoo to remove are the ones on the head and neck area, then the upper and lower torso. The slowest to remove are tattoos located on the feet and hands.
Colors: The more colors, the more sessions will be needed to successfully lighgten the tattoo.
Depth: The more shallow/superficial the tattoo is, the faster it will be to lighten it.
Colors: The more colors, the more sessions will be needed for successful lightening.

The laser will not cause hair loss (it is a different machine to laser hair removal) but it can remove the color from the hair temporarily as it can not differentiate between tattoo pigment and hair pigmentation. I do my best to move the hair out of the way, but some hair will turn white when zapped. I advise clients to use a brow mascara on the brows after until the white grows out, or tint them.
The Q-switch laser breaks up the pigment using heat and then the immune and lymphatic system work to clear it from the body.
Six to eight weeks waiting time between treatments is necessary to allow for the lymphatic system to metabolize the pigment as much as possible. The tattoo will continue to lighten for 6-8 weeks after your appointment so it is not beneficial to come back sooner than 6 weeks for another session.
Please wait at least 10 weeks after your last laser session to ensure that the laser has fully finished working. If we put new pigment in too soon, the lymphatic system does not know which pigment is old and which is new, so you could experience significant fading if tattooed too soon.
The laser carbon peel is a fast and painless procedure done to help improve the look of skin.
Laser carbon peels are used to treat:
Chemical peels also treat these skin conditions, but here are some of the main differences between the two:
The laser carbon peel is a multi-part process that takes around 30 minutes from start to finish. For this reason, it is sometimes referred to as a lunchtime peel.
Here’s what you can expect from a typical laser carbon peel:
You should immediately see brighter, glowing skin and tighter pores.
If you have sensitive skin, you may experience a slight pinking or reddening of the skin. This usually lasts for one hour or less.
