There are many reasons for wanting to remove a tattoo. Maybe it’s ugly or spelled wrong, or has a person’s name you regret or it’s just not for you anymore. If you’re considering getting a tattoo removed or lightened, you’re in luck. At New York Skin & Vein Center, we’ve got just what you’re looking for. We’ve mastered the top-of-the-line laser tattoo removal technologies to help you get it done right, no matter the reason.
What Happens During Laser Tattoo Removal?
At NYSVC, we use the world’s best laser tattoo removal technology: the Enlighten™ Laser by Cutera. This state-of-the-art treatment breaks the ink down into tiny fragments that your body will absorb from the skin over time. Unlike its competitors, the Enlighten™ Laser is able to produce pulses of light by the picosecond and nanosecond, making for an even faster removal process. With a short treatment, tattoo removal has never been easier or faster.
Is The Process Painful?
If you’ve talked to people who have undergone tattoo removal, you may have heard some horror stories but don’t let them scare you. In fact, removal is not painful at all and much more comfortable than getting the tattoo itself. Because we provide numbing creams and cold air to chill the area during treatment, the Enlighten™ Laser is virtually painless. If you are especially sensitive, we will numb the area just the dentist does with novocaine. Side effects after treatment are minimal and feel like a mild sunburn for just a few days.
