Laser Tattoo Removal Denver, CO
“The FASTEST way to get rid of your ink!”
At Tattoo Undo, we use the CynoSure PicoSure Laser for faster laser tattoo removal. PicoSure is the most advanced laser treatment available for safe and effective tattoo removal. PicoSure targets unwanted ink more effectively than other nanosecond lasers, successfully removing difficult ink colors, such as blues, purples and greens as well as previously treated tattoos. Fewer treatments, faster recovery time and greater results are possible with PicoSure’s groundbreaking picosecond technology.
Your treating clinician will use Tattoo Undo’s state of the art lasers to direct energy at the ink in your tattoo for a fraction of a second. The laser energy passes harmlessly through the outer layer of your skin to target the tattoo ink directly. The laser fragments the ink into smaller components. The resulting smaller particles of ink are then removed by the body’s own immune system.
The time of laser tattoo removal treatments are very short, often lasting only minutes, so you can fit it into your busy schedule. Most often several (3-8) treatments are needed. Treatment sessions are spaced 6-8 weeks apart.
Most people explain the feeling of the laser similar to being slapped with a rubber band. As we treat the area, we cool the overlying skin with a skin cooling device called the Zimmer cooling system. We cool the skin before, during and after the procedure, reducing the pain while decreasing the thermal temperature. This cooling air makes the procedure as comfortable as possible. If necessary we use prescription strength numbing cream to minimize any discomfort.
When you talk about pain and the zimmer chiller that is good. We almost always use topical prescription grade Benzocaine, Lidocaine, Tetracaine (BLT) Cream which is included in our price. For an additional charge of $75 per use we have the ProNox. It’s amazing and takes the pain away! We want all our patients to feel comfortable and confident during their procedures. The Pro-Nox™ Aesthetic System uses a 50/50 combination of inhaled oxygen and nitrous oxide to provide fast-acting pain relief. Nitrous, commonly known as laughing gas, is one of the oldest sedatives in medicine. While it is not a replacement for anesthesia, it does complement and enhance the effects of local anesthetics, like lidocaine. A lot of our clients with bigger tattoos like to use topical numbing cream, the chiller and Pro-Nox.
We also have the Cynosure Medlite C6 Q-switched laser for tattoo removal as well. Most of our competitors only have the Q-switched laser, which is the traditional tattoo removal laser. It works well on all skin colors. Because we have both lasers we use both lasers at one time to speed up your tattoo fading. It’s called the T2 treatment: first we use the Q-switched and then the Pico right after in one session. They are different wavelengths of light so it’s totally safe, we have been doing it for 5 years with great results.
We also offer the PFD Patch by Describe which can be used to speed up tattoo removal as well. There is an additional cost for that as well. $100 for the patch and then we charge the number of treatments we do per session. We use this patch sparingly, not on everyone. It’s best when tattoos are very faded and not fading any more.
The DESCRIBE PFD PATCH is a silicone patch infused with perfluorodecalin (PFD) that allows laser passes in a single tattoo removal treatment session and helps the laser reach ink particles deep within the skin.The Patch allows up to 4x as many passes per office visit compared to treatment without the Patch.
