When Frank Thigpen opened Tattoo Bill's Tattoo Removal he tested several lasers on the market. The systems included the Medlite C3, Medlite IV, Revlite, Picosure, Cynosure Affinity and the Palomar Yag 5. Lastly, he tested the award-winning laser from Hoya Con Bio, the Medlite C6 and quickly decided it was the best for tattoo removal treatments. The Medlite C6 has won countless awards and is considered the industry "Gold Standard" laser.
OUR LASER TECHNOLOGY
Using the groundbreaking Medlite C6 laser technology, Tattoo Bill's Tattoo Removal can provide maximum tattoo removal results without harming or scarring the surrounding skin.
The Medlite C6 laser is highly effective at removing black, red, brown, orange, purple and dark blue tattoo pigment. The optional dye handpieces are best for sky blue and green. A combination of the two handpieces will provide the best treatment for any color tattoo.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Measured wavelengths of light pass into the targeted dermal ink. The light is quickly absorbed, and the laser’s light energy breaks the tattoo into tiny particles. Overtime, these particles are eliminated by the body’s natural filtering systems.
Our Medlite C6 Laser eliminates more ink the during the treatments and you will notice optimal results with the least amount of treatments. On average, patients receive 4-8 treatments.
Since every patient and tattoo is unique, our Certified Laser Specialist will use the following factors to estimate the number of treatments needed to achieve your desired tattoo removal goals: age of tattoo, size of tattoo, color of tattoo, location of tattoo, density of ink, pre-existing scarring and overall patient health.
Tattoo removal appointments are scheduled at a minimum of 6 to 8 weeks apart. We want to allow your skin to heal before the next tattoo removal treatment. This waiting period is for your safety. Receiving another treatment prematurely can increase side effects and pigment changes.
Laser Tattoo removal can be uncomfortable. Each patient has a different pain threshold so your level of pain may vary. Patients often describe the treatment feeling like a rubber band being snapped against the skin at a rapid pace.
On the bright side, laser tattoo removal treatments are quick! Generally speaking, a laser tattoo removal appointment will last no longer than 30 minutes.
To minimize the pain and alleviate any worry you may experience, we use a Zimmer cooling device during your treatment.
Patients may experience minor side effects such as pigmentation changes, swelling, redness, blistering and scabbing. This indicates that your body is healing and removing the ink from your skin. We urge you from picking scabs or popping the blisters that may arise.
Absolutely! For optimal fading, you may only need a couple treatments. This will give your tattoo artist a cleaner canvas and allow for flexibility with their design.
