At Slimming Solutions Med Spa we have a state of the art, FDA approved laser tattoo removal system that we use on all skin types! All colors are not created equal, but we remove all of them with our brand new magnificent Q-Switched ND:YAG Laser, only the very best for our guests! The easiest to remove is black, the most difficult is aqua. Since 2011, we have removed tattoos from around the world including Brazil and Argentina.
Many people no longer wish to have a tattoo due to outdated fads, it’s old and faded, no longer with their partner, misspelled (yes, we have seen many tattoo word misspellings) or they want to present themselves as being professional. About 60% of people who receive tattoos regret them.
Our nurse who is also an esthetician will remove the tattoo. She has been certified in laser tattoo removal since 2011 from Laser Training Institute. She also worked for American Laser Centers in 2007 performing many light-based treatments.
Every tattoo is difference some are easier to remove than others. The Q-Switched ND:YAG Laser breaks up the color into small particles and your immune system carries it out of your body. The laser targets any color of tattoo.
Anyone who has a tattoo they no longer want is a candidate for tattoo removal. Any skin color can have tattoo removal treatment, as the laser targets the ink color, not the skin pigment. Black or dark tattoos are generally the easiest to remove. The lighter the color, the more difficult it is to remove the ink, so lighter tattoos may require more sessions than a dark one.
The first step is to schedule an in-person consultation with one of our highly trained providers at Slimming Solutions Spa located in Lee Summit, MO, serving the surrounding Kansas City areas. Simply fill out the form on this page and we will reach out to you promptly to schedule your appointment. Your journey to a healthier, happier you can start today.
You are usually here close to an hour. The numbing cream takes at least 30 minutes to numb the area. While the treatment can be painful, we use the strongest prescription numbing cream there is. As the laser fires, it feels like a quick rubber band snap. The first removal is the most uncomfortable. In over 10 years of experience, we have not had one client unable to tolerate treatment.
While exact results will vary depending on the shape and size of your tattoo, most people will see decreased visibility of their tattoo. While some wish to fully remove the tattoo, you can also lighten it enough to have a coverup tattoo placed on top of it with just a few sessions.
The newer laser machines do not scar the skin. If you pick at the area or do not take care of it as recommended by our nurse it may scar, but generally not.
The number of treatments you need depends on many factors of which are the tattoo age, color of the ink, the depth of ink, quality of the ink, skill of tattoo artist, size of the tattoo, and where it is located. Dark and old tattoos can usually be removed in 6 treatments. Lighter or/and newer tattoos usually take more sessions.
While you can resume normal activities right after your treatment, it takes about a week for the area to heal. We offer a product that speeds up the healing time that contains silver. The area treated and blister but this is usually not painful. The blistering heals in a few days. This is the way of the body breaking down the ink in the tattoo when it is treated with a laser.
