Non-invasive Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy sessions can be used to remove some types of tattoo pigments from the skin!
Benefits of IPL for tattoo removal:
Less painful than traditional laser treatments
Sessions are quick, usually less than 30 minutes!
More cost effective-IPL sessions are cheaper than laser treatments
How it works...
Cool gel is applied to the area to be treated, and protective eye wear is worn by the client and the technician. The IPL hand piece is placed over the tattoo and emits flashes (or pulses) of light. This light energy is absorbed by certain pigments, breaking up the tattoo. The body eliminates this shattered pigment, from the skin, via the lymphatic system. Multiple sessions are required, to achieve best results-usually spaced at least 30 days apart.
Who is a good candidate...
Generally, those with lighter skin tones. The greater the contrast, between the tattoo pigment and the surrounding skin, the better the expected results.
