LASER TATTOO REMOVAL IN OTTAWA
More than 38% of Canadians have tattoos, but as many as 1 in 4 experience “tattoo regret.” Some regret the appearance of the tattoo, while others simply no longer want a permanent reminder of earlier days. As a result, tattoo removal is an increasingly popular option to turn back the hands of time on body art. Laser tattoo removal is a safe, non-invasive way to remove unwanted tattoos. Using state-of-the-art laser technology, our laser technicians can correct, fade, and partially or completely remove old tattoos that you no longer wish to have on your body. Laser tattoo removal can target tattoos anywhere on the body, including the upper back/shoulder area, lower back, chest, arms, ankles, legs, buttocks, neck, and face.
Our tattoo removal services help you reclaim control of your body and say goodbye to unwanted tattoos.*
HOW DOES LASER TATTOO REMOVAL WORK?
With a tattoo, thousands of small pigments of ink are injected into your skin. The particles are too large to be removed through the body’s natural healing process, so they remain in the skin permanently. Laser tattoo removal uses a high-powered, short pulsed beam of light delivered at precise wavelengths to target ink particles and break them up into smaller particles. These tiny particles can then be gradually absorbed and removed through the body’s natural healing process. Over time, the tattoo will fade or disappear completely.*
Our tattoo removal services use the Harmony XL PRO laser system from Alma Lasers, the leader in laser technology. This full spectrum tattoo removal system targets both black and white and full colour tattoos. The handpiece allows your laser technician to precisely control the energy and spot size of the beam, ensuring optimal results.*
Over multiple sessions, the pigment will begin to fade. Over time, your skin will return to its natural tone and often the original tattoo will no longer be noticeable. Sessions usually last up 30 minutes and take place in the clean and comfortable atmosphere of our clinic. Generally, 3 to 12 sessions are required for best results, 6 to 8 weeks apart. Some tattoos can be removed more easily than others depending on pigment colour, age of the tattoo, design complexity, and location on the body. During your complimentary consultation, your skin care professional will assess your tattoo and recommend a treatment option.*
