Laser Machine We Use
At Euromed Clinic Center, we use PICO Genesis Enlighten III for tattoo removal. Picosecond laser has the power to remove all colors of tattoo ink such as green, red, and yellow. It uses shorter pulse width to break the pigment into tiny particles absorbed by the body’s lymphatic system and removed naturally. There is a lower risk of hyperpigmentation with a picosecond laser, and it may require fewer sessions compared to other laser types.
The PICO laser utilizes a focus lens technology that converts the laser energy into pressure waves at a faster speed. As a result, the ink pigments shatter into dust-like particles quickly.

What are the Benefits of Laser Tattoo Removal
Laser tattoo removal offers a safe and effective way to remove unwanted tattoos with minimal scarring. Besides that, laser tattoo removal is globally acknowledged because of the following unconditional benefits:
Precise: Laser technology allows for precise targeting of tattoo pigments, minimizing damage to the surrounding skin.
Effective Removal: Gradually breaks down ink particles, resulting in gradual fading and eventual complete removal.
Minimal Scarring: Controlled laser energy reduces the risk of scarring compared to other methods like surgical excision.
Color Diversity: Advanced laser systems can target a wide range of ink colors, including difficult-to-remove shades.
Non-Invasive: Non-surgical procedure that doesn’t require incisions, reducing infection risks and downtime.
Tailored Treatments: Treatment plans can be tailored to individual tattoos, optimizing results based on size, color, and depth.
Safe and Regulated: FDA-approved lasers ensure safety and effectiveness under trained medical professionals.
Results of Tattoo Removal
The results of laser tattoo removal are not instant. Multiple sessions are required to achieve the desired results. The number of treatment sessions required for complete tattoo removal varies depending on factors like the size, age, and ink type of the tattoo. It may take anywhere from a few sessions to over ten sessions.
The practitioner usually provides pre-procedural guidelines to patients before performing the tattoo removal procedure. It is essential to follow these instructions to avoid complications during or after the procedure.
- Remove the unwanted hairs from the targeted area.
- Avoid undergoing laser procedures like laser hair removal before the treatment.
- Your skin should be clean. Do not apply creams, oils, or lotions to your skin.
- Avoid excessive sun exposure and UV tanning beds for at least 2 weeks before the treatment.
- Use sunblock (SPF 30 or more) daily.
How is the Procedure Performed?
- Your dermatologist will first clean and prepare the treatment area before starting laser tattoo removal.
- All the body areas except the treatment area will be covered with a piece of cloth.
- After that, a numbing gel will be applied to the target area. You will also be asked to wear safety spectacles for eye protection against the laser.
- As the procedure begins, the laser device will direct the laser beam to the tattoo.
- The ink pigments absorb the laser energy and dissipate into minute particles.
- These particles are then removed from the body naturally.
- The duration of the procedure varies depending on the tattoo’s size and the type of ink used. It may take from a few minutes to an hour or more.
- After getting the treatment, you may experience redness and swelling, but they subside quickly.
- Avoid excessive sun exposure, tanning beds, and sunlamps for at least 2 weeks after the treatment to help the skin heal properly.
