Laser tattoo removal is widely recognized as the best solution for removing unwanted tattoos, t, and fading tattoos for new artwork or cover-ups. This FDA approved procedure is both safe and effective, and completely noninvasive. Blackout Tattoo Removal uses the latest technology and safest protocols to deliver the best tattoo removal results. As such, our Colorado Springs clinic uses the industry-leading Wontech Pastelle laser system. The Pastelle delivers full-spectrum removal across the widest range of tattoos. The Wontech Pastelle combines the powers of a Q-switched Nd:YAG laser and Q-switched Ruby laser and produces 4 incredibly versatile wavelengths – 1064 nm, 595 nm, 660 nm, and 694 nm. Each of these wavelengths selectively destroys a specific group of pigments, allowing for complete ink removal on all multicolored tattoos.
Many clinics are forced to turn away customers with multicolored bright tattoos because their lasers do not offer a wavelength that can effectively target more “resistant” shades. The 660 nm and the 694 nm ruby wavelengths are capable of treating vibrant blue and green inks, and when used in combination with our 1064 nm and 532 nm wavelengths, no colors are left untreatable.
Laser tattoo removal essentially speeds up the natural fading process that is carried out by the immune system over many years. During a treatment, the laser emits flashes of light energy onto the unwanted tattoo. The trapped ink particles absorb the light energy, causing them to shatter into tiny fragmented particles that the body can more readily process, and are then naturally cleared away by the white blood cells through the bloodstream.
Over a series of treatments, the laser will continue to break down the ink particles into smaller fragments, allowing more ink to be cleared with each session until no ink is visible in the skin. Multiple treatments are the norm in laser tattoo removal as a balance needs to be found between efficient removal and not overly treating to avoid damaging the skin. Generally, fewer treatments are needed for clients with older, faded tattoos or clients interested in lightening their tattoo for a cover-up.
