The Superior Method for Removing Unwanted Ink

     Laser tattoo removal is the safest, most effective method for removing unwanted tattoo ink. Techniques like salabrasion, excision, dermabrasion, and acid injections are invasive, painful, and almost always result in scarring. Tattoo removal creams use advertising claims and bleaching ingredients to falsely portray tattoo fading when in reality, creams can’t reach the skin’s dermal layer where tattoo ink lives. Only laser tattoo removal can safely penetrate through the skin and shatter tattoo ink particles without causing damage to the surrounding tissue.

The Natural Fading Process

     Tattoos are made up of numerous ink particles inserted into the skin’s dermis, the deepest layerof the skin. When the ink particles are deposited, your immune system sends bacteria-eating cells to remove the foreign ink particles. However, the size of the cells compared to the large ink particles is too small to remove the tattoo ink all at once. Instead, your immune system continuously breaks down tiny micro particles of ink, which is why tattoos are permanent but gradually fade over time.

How Laser Tattoo Removal Works

     Laser tattoo removal speeds up your immune system’s natural fading process by breaking up the large ink particles into tiny fragments that your cells can easily flush away. Our Astanza Trinity laser produces three wavelengths of light energy that specific groups of ink colors absorb. The absorption of light energy causes the ink particles to heat up and break into nanoparticles.Once the laser breaks down the ink, your bacteria-eating cells collect and flush out the shattered particles, causing your tattoo to fade. Multiple treatments are needed to break down the tattoo’s layers successfully and achieve complete removal or significant fading. Since tattoos need time to heal between sessions, a healing period of six to eight weeks is recommended between treatments.

Fading for Cover-up Tattoos

     Cover-up tattoos are a popular alternative solution for dealing with an unwanted tattoo. Many clients choose to hide their existing tattoo by layering another tattoo over it. However, tattoo cover-ups come with a handful of limitations, especially if the original tattoo has dense, black ink. With laser tattoo removal, our tattoo artists can lighten a tattoo to make better modifications, improvements, and corrections, ultimately giving our clients exactly what they want versus settling for anything less. We can create a cleaner canvas and remove size and color limitations that other tattoo studios have difficulty facing by fading a tattoo.


     If you’re interested in getting a cover-up, we highly suggest lightening your tattoo with laser tattoo removal. Call us at 1(315) 214-8187 to speak to one of our Syracuse Tattoo Artists for more Information!
