The MedLite C-3 Laser also removes unwanted tattoos. Tattoo ink is removed by using a specific wavelength of light which passes into the skin, but is absorbed by the ink. The rapid absorption of light energy causes the tattoo ink to break into tiny particles which can then be removed by the body’s natural filtering systems. The MedLite laser provides maximum tattoo removal while leaving the surrounding skin unharmed.
On average, professional tattoos require 6-8 treatments while amateur tattoos require 4-5 treatments. The number of treatments depends on the amount and type of ink used, and the depth of the ink in the skin.
Since there is the possibility of blistering or scabbing post treatment, repeat treatments can be performed after the treated area is completely healed, which could be 4 to 6 weeks
