Medlite Laser Santa Barbara – Tattoo Removal Santa Barbara – Santa Barbara Dermatology
SB Aesthetics offers tattoo removal which is a quite safe and non-surgical procedure that uses quick bursts of the Medlite laser energy to slowly dissipate tattoo ink from the layers of the skin and give the body the ability to begin the healing process to ultimately completely remove the ink from the body.
There are many factors that dictate the number of treatments required to remove a tattoo completely. These include, the colors used, how much ink is used, where this tattoo is located, if there is any tissue scarring present and the person’s skin type. Most patients need 6 or even 8 treatments to completely remove their tattoo. Large tattoos can take as many as 10-12 treatments or possibly more. In order for the skin to heal properly, generally, sessions are spaced anywhere from 6-8 weeks apart.
The Medlite laser utilizes a photoacoustic medical laser which means the laser produces intense levels of energy in short pulse periods. The beam generated targets pigmented collagen and skin in the process destroying the pigmentation. Considering that the Medlite medical laser only is directed at pigmented skin and tattoo ink, the remaining surrounding skin is left healthy and unharmed.
