Tattoos can be beautiful works of art that carry meaning or aesthetic connection. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. They can become negative daily reminders or eyesores. In the past, tattoos have been a “permanent” decision. Then, tattoo removal technology was created to lighten and remove ink pigment with laser energy. However, this was a very painful process that required many treatments to reach the desired outcome. Now, thanks to PicoWay® laser technology, the process of tattoo removal is quicker, less painful, and accessible to a wider range of skin tones. Are you looking for tattoo removal in Lafayette?

Why Would You Remove Your Tattoo?
There are many reasons that you may consider removing a tattoo. It reminds you of a negative past relationship. The artist made a mistake or tattooed the artwork poorly. You don’t want it to interfere with job opportunities. Or, you may simply not care for the artwork anymore. Each of these reasons is valid! Whether you are wanting to completely remove your tattoo or lighten it enough to cover it with a new, fresh design, tattoo removal services give you the chance at a clean slate.
What Is the Process of Tattoo Removal?
For those needing tattoo removal in Lafayette, the Aesthetic Medicine and Anti-Aging Clinic is ready with fast, safe technology. We utilize PicoWay® Tattoo Removal. This is a great way to effectively and quickly lighten your tattoos without painful treatment. The PicoWay® removal technology uses a high-intensity laser. Each burst of energy lasts for a fraction of a second and emits a photo-acoustic effect. This means that both light and sound waves penetrate the skin. This is essential to reach deep into the layers of the skin to break up and lighten your ink’s pigmentation.
The PicoWay® laser effectively breaks up the pigment in your skin, and then macrophages help to remove the pigment from your body. Macrophages, or specialized cells that take part in your immune response, engulf and consume these foreign ink crystals. Within four to six treatments, your tattoo will be removed! Downtime is minimal, and the laser, though powerful, emits less exposure to the targeted area. This makes it a fantastic option for both light and dark skin tones without negative effects on skin pigmentation. Compared to earlier tattoo removal treatments, the PicoWay® laser technology is faster, safer, more effective, and less painful.
