Laser Tattoo Removal in Memphis and Germantown
At Germantown Aesthetics, we use the MedLite C6 laser, which is often referred to as the “gold standard” laser for tattoo removal. The MedLite works by aiming a beam of light directly at the ink in the tattoo, which breaks up the tattoo ink into pieces small enough for your body to absorb.
Frequently Asked Questions about Tattoo Removal
How many treatments will I need?
This depends on multiple factors, such as the type of ink that was used, the age of the tattoo, the size, and how many different colors were used. Most patients require an estimated 8 to 12 treatments for black tattoos.
Is laser tattoo removal painful?
While it is unpleasant and can be slightly painful, we decrease discomfort by applying cold compresses to the skin prior to the treatment and encourage patients to continue using cold compresses immediately after the treatment to cool the skin.
