A new job, changing tastes or simply looking for some space for a new tattoo are all valid reasons to undergo tattoo removal. Before starting treatments it is important to note that not all lasers are created equal. There are vast differences in the way lasers work and the wavelength used will determine what they can (and can’t!) treat.
Black tattoos are usually the easiest to remove, but in some cases black ink can be made up of several different colours or have an underlying shade which can make it more challenging than first thought. This is usually only noticed after a few treatments once it starts fading or lightening. Coloured tattoos can be harder to treat as different colours will require different wavelengths to effectively target and remove the ink.
Most lasers in use for tattoo removal only utilise one wavelength and aim to remove all the different colours. After several treatments with a single wavelength it is common for this method to stop working as some colours lighten and other more stubborn colours remain.
The Conbio Medlite C6 is one of the few tattoo removal lasers on the market which uses multiple wavelengths to remove all tattoo inks from the skin by specifically targeting different colours. This means it continues to work throughout your series of laser tattoo removal treatments. In fact we have had several clients who have started elsewhere then came to us after the laser treatment they were having stopped working.
By doing your research prior to starting laser tattoo removal treatments you will ensure that you get the best result when you decide to remove a tattoo.
