FDA-Approved and only available in Atlanta at Premier Image Cosmetic and Laser Surgery
Premier Image is pleased to offer the latest in laser tattoo removal technology in Atlanta: On Demand Laser Tattoo Removal. The On Demand Laser Tattoo Removal treatment is an FDA-approved tool that Expert Licensed Laser Practitioners can use to reduce the number of laser tattoo removal treatments in half.
The most common and safest method for tattoo removal is with a special laser device that destroys ink pigment. Before On Demand Laser Tattoo Removal, many treatments were needed for satisfactory fading of the tattoo, and the treatments needed to be spaced several weeks apart for adequate healing. This means that a large, brightly colored, or complex tattoo requiring many laser sessions could have taken a year or more of treatments to fade adequately. On Demand Laser Tattoo Removal has allowed patients to have faster results by speeding up both the treatment process and recovery time.
What is On Demand Laser Tattoo Removal?
Instead of a standalone treatment, Premier Image’s On Demand Laser Tattoo Removal uses a special FDA-approved device that is used to speed up the tattoo removal process. The FDA approved device contains perfluorodecalin, which is a liquid with many different medical uses. It absorbs the nitrogen gas bubbles that form during laser tattoo removal treatments and also reduces optical scattering, allowing the laser to penetrate more deeply and precisely. This means that the same tattoo can have multiple “passes” of the laser done during one treatment. Without the device, the laser can only be passed over the tattoo once and be effective. Subsequent passes will not help fade the tattoo until the skin has healed. With the device, 3-4 passes can sometimes be done during the same treatment session. The device itself is transparent, allowing light from the laser to pass through and destroy the tattoo ink more efficiently.
What are the Benefits?
The main benefit of using On Demand Laser Tattoo Removal is that it speeds up the treatment process, in most cases by fifty percent. While a traditional laser treatment series can take a year or more, On Demand Laser Tattoo Removal reduces that time by reducing the number of treatments needed overall. Because the On Demand Laser Tattoo Removal device absorbs gases, it can help protect both patient and provider by taking in harmful emissions that can result from the destruction of the tattoo ink. It’s also more comfortable for patients, generally helping to reduce overall healing time required after each treatment.
The tattoo removal process with On Demand Laser Tattoo Removal is fairly simple. The device is first applied to the skin, and then a special laser is aimed at the tattoo ink. The laser’s light then breaks up the ink pigment so that the body can dispose of it gradually following the treatment. Patients often describe the sensation as uncomfortable but tolerable—sort of like a series of snaps from a rubber band. The On Demand Laser Tattoo Removal device allows the Expert Licensed Laser Practitioners at Premier Image to go over the tattoo several times immediately, enhancing the destruction of the ink.
Recovery and Downtime
Following the tattoo removal treatment, patients may experience minor swelling, discomfort, and redness. This is normal and will subside as the skin heals. Blistering may also occur. It’s important to keep the area clean and dry while it is healing. Most normal activities are permitted following treatment, but you should always take your provider’s advice.
Factors influencing the number of treatments needed include the size and complexity of the tattoo, the tattoo ink, the skin type, and the colors used. The device allows providers to do multiple “passes” (up to 3 or 4 during each treatment), which breaks up the pigment faster and reduces the number of overall treatments needed for success. Most patient’s find that they need around half as many treatments as without the device.
Receiving an On Demand Laser Tattoo Removal treatment is very safe. The usual tattoo removal side effects can still occur such as swelling, redness and pain.
Nearly any tattoo removal treatment can be enhanced with On Demand Laser Tattoo Removal. However, you will learn more about your individual candidacy during your consultation.
Many patients feel that On Demand Laser Tattoo Removal does reduce discomfort and speed up the healing process compared to traditional laser tattoo removal. This is because the On Demand device forms a protective barrier between the skin and the laser. While the light still penetrates the skin, the device can help concentrate the light and protect the skin, making for more efficient and more comfortable treatments.
The On Demand Laser Tattoo Removal device is an FDA-approved silicone device infused with perfluorodecalin. It’s a harmless liquid that is used in many medical applications.
Generally, the waiting period is about 4-6 weeks, depending on healing. Your Expert Licensed Laser Practitioners may be able to perform treatments closer together with the On Demand Laser Tattoo Removal Device, but there are several factors involved.
How long will the entire Laser Tattoo Removal process take?
Laser tattoo removal treatments are fairly quick, and the whole process for each treatment shouldn’t take long. However, the length of time needed to complete the treatments varies dramatically based on the tattoo. While the On Demand Tattoo Removal device speeds the process up, different tattoos require a different number of treatments. Your doctor should be able to provide you with an estimate based on your unique situation.
Typical laser tattoo removal treatments can take up to a year. Premier Image Cosmetic and Laser Surgery’s On Demand Laser Tattoo Removal can cut that time in half.
What kind of laser is used for Tattoo Removal?
The Expert Licensed Laser Practitioners at Premier Image use the Versapulse VPC laser system, a highly effective laser that gently treats all colors of tattoo ink.
Who should perform tattoo removal treatments?
You should always choose an Expert Licensed Laser Practitioner to perform your treatments. This reduces your risks for complications and improves the overall outcome. Don’t skimp when it comes to choosing your provider—only an expert can maximize your chances for success.
