As many as five out of six Americans regret their tattoo. But with advances in aesthetic technology, tattoos no longer have to be permanent. Angie Sucre, RN, at Luxe Beauty Now in Bedford, Texas, offers tattoo removal with the Q-Switched Nd: YAG laser. To schedule a consultation to learn more about tattoo removal, contact her office by phone or book an appointment online today.
Tattoo removal refers to the various procedures available to help you get rid of the permanent ink on your skin.
At Luxe Beauty Now, Angie and her team use the Q-Switched Nd: YAG laser to remove your unwanted tattoo. This advanced laser tool delivers short, high-powered laser pulses to the ink under your skin. The intense energy causes the pigment to shatter into tiny particles, which your body absorbs and filters naturally.
With the Q-Switched Nd: YAG laser, the team can remove your tattoo more completely and quickly than with traditional tattoo removal lasers.
Tattoos are considered permanent because your immune system is unable to remove the large ink particles placed in the middle layer of your skin.
Tattoo removal at Luxe Beauty Now works because the intense pulses of laser energy produced by the Nd: YAG laser break the ink particles into pieces small enough for your immune system to remove.
At Luxe Beauty Now, the team performs tattoo removal at a relaxed pace. Angie assures all questions are answered before your session.
Prior to treatment, a numbing cream is applied to your tattoo, ensuring your experience is as comfortable as possible.
Once the numbing cream takes effect, Angie places the laser wand over your tattoo and delivers the rapid pulses of light to break up the ink particles. You may feel a snapping sensation as the light energy hits your skin.
After your session, aftercare instructions are discussed in detail.
You can resume your usual activities after your tattoo removal session, but it’s very important to protect your skin. Luxe Beauty Now recommends wearing sunblock everyday, especially during the healing process.
Angie and the team at Luxe Beauty Now determine the number of tattoo removal sessions you need based on the density, location, ink color, and size of your tattoo. Many people experience noticeable results following just one treatment. However, you should be prepared for multiple treatment sessions set at eight to ten week intervals for complete removal.
Thanks to the Q-switched Nd: YAG laser, tattoos are no longer permanent. To schedule your tattoo removal consultation at Luxe Beauty Now, call the office, or book online today.
