Laser tattoo removal is also an excellent idea for anyone wanting to get a current tattoo lightened up so that it can be covered up with a new tattoo. If you do not first treat it and get some of the old ink out, the new ink will raise and bulge in the skin making it a 3D tattoo, because the cells can only hold so much ink. Placing more ink in the same spot will make it rise up off the skins surface and be thick, so we recommend having a few sessions to remove the majority of ink before starting a cover-up.
Unlike other laser treatments, which can cause scarring and damage, the RevLite SI penetrates the dermal layers of skin to destroy the underlying pigment of tattoo ink, while not disturbing the surface skin. If you follow the protocols for removal with the RevLite SI you will not have scarring and damage.
Make sure to do your research not every laser is the same. By not using the right equipment you can experience unnecessary pain, scarring and less than desired results. You can learn more about Eagle Laser Center’s laser here.
