If you’re interested in removing your tattoo, you’re not alone. Estimates show 50% of people who get tattoos want to remove them within ten years. While tattoo removal is more advanced than ever, there’s still only one laser that effectively removes colorful tattoos. At Colorado Skin & Vein, we’re proud to be one of nine practices in the United States to offer colorful tattoo removal using the PiQo4 Laser by Lumenis.
A Colorful Tattoo Removal Procedure at Colorado Skin & Vein
Our specialists perform colorful laser tattoo removals as outpatient procedures. Our patients love the procedure is because it’s very quick—usually only a few minutes. Also, there’s very little discomfort. Most patients describe the sensation as that of a snap of a rubber band. Key procedure steps include the following:
- A topical anesthetic to numb the area being treated is applied
- The handheld laser is passed over the tattoo
- The specialist passes a cooling device over the treated area
As the laser is passed over the tattoo, light breaks tattoo pigments into very tiny particles which are easily and naturally eliminated from the body shortly after the procedure. Patients return to work and normal activities after their appointment. There’s no downtime.
Colorful Tattoo Removal Results
The final result after a procedure using the PiQo4 laser is complete tattoo removal. It usually takes a series of treatments for patients to see their ultimate result. Series are spaced out over six to eight-week intervals. The total number of treatments depends on the size and color of the tattoo and its location.
