Laser Tattoo Removal

diminishing the unwanted tattoo's appearance

What is Laser Tattoo Removal?

According to a recent statistic, nearly 30% of adults in the U.S. have a tattoo, and almost half of millennials do. But unfortunately, as many as 25% of those state that they regret it. So if that second statistic applies to you, laser tattoo removal might be an excellent option. 

Laser tattoo removal works by targeting the tattooed skin with a precision laser to break up the pigment under your skin, significantly diminishing the unwanted tattoo’s appearance. When you work with Coastal Aesthetics, our talented medical team can remove your tattoo entirely regardless of whether it’s a simple black outline or highly pigmented with various colors. 

When you come in for your consultation, our technicians will examine the area you want to treat and advise you on the best course of action. We will consider the age, size, and colors of your tattoo, the pigment level in your skin, and how deep the pigment goes.

FAQs about Laser Tattoo Removal

What Laser Do You Use For Tattoo Removal?

At Coastal Aesthetic, we are proud to offer Harmony XL Pro, a powerful and versatile laser produced by the prestigious Alma Lasers, who have set the industry standard for years. Harmony XL Pro is a class apart from most cosmetic lasers. It provides a wide array of services and is currently FDA-approved to treat up to 65 different skin indications, from tattoo removal to uneven skin texture, lines, wrinkles, acne scars, etc.

We pride ourselves on providing the latest and safest technology in laser tattoo removal to our clients in York, Maine. Harmony XL Pro effectively removes even highly pigmented tattoos better than ever before.

How does Harmony XL Pro work?

Alma’s Harmony XL Pro uses Q-switched laser technology. This technology allows us to deliver energy safely beneath the skin’s surface, selectively targeting ink particles. The laser creates a photoacoustic shock wave that breaks up ink particles and allows your body’s lymphatic system to flush out the ink particles resulting naturally.

Harmony XL Pro is different than other lasers because it utilizes an advanced laser beam to work in different wavelengths, meaning it can effectively target different ink colors. In addition, this technology allows specific wavelengths to be attracted to particular colors making it even more effective at treating darker and brighter shades.

Am I a Good Candidate For Laser Tattoo Removal?

If you are in good health, are not currently pregnant, and have a tattoo you’d like removed, you might be a good candidate for Harmony XL Pro laser tattoo removal. However, if the tattooed skin is presently injured (sunburned etc.), it’s best to wait until it has completely healed before starting tattoo removal treatments.

Will My Tattoo Disappear Completely?

YES! Although tattoo removal is typically done over a series of treatments, the Harmony XL Pro is so advanced it can remove unwanted tattoos altogether with fewer sessions than typical tattoo removal lasers. Call us today to book your consultation and see for yourself.

What Kind of Tattoos Can Harmony XL Pro-Treat?

At Coastal Aesthetics, our tattoo removal treatment can treat all kinds of tattoos in various ink shades, even including cosmetic tattoos such as permanent eyeliner, lip liner, and brow tattoos. Although different tattoos require varied treatment plans, Harmony XL Pro can handle any tattoos you might have. Patients love their results and report their skin looking like the ink had never been placed.

How Many Treatments Will I Need to Remove My Tattoo?

The number of treatment sessions needed depends on many factors, including the size and location of the tattoo, the ink color, and the technique used, all affect the removal process. Of course, results vary from patient to patient; however, typically, patients see significant fading after 6-12 sessions. Therefore, for optimal results, more than 12 sessions may be required. If you have questions about the budget and timeline for your tattoo removal, please call our offices, and our staff will be happy to help.

Is There Any Downtime to this Procedure?

Although each patient responds differently to treatment, it’s common to experience raised, pale, or even white skin immediately after treatment. It’s also normal for the skin to show redness or swelling, which usually resolves quickly. You must protect the treated area from sun exposure during the first 24 hours following treatment. Healing takes approximately one to three weeks following your treatment.

Will Laser Tattoo Removal Leave a Scar?

Harmony XL Pro technology allows for fast energy delivery over large areas, meaning the laser can use less energy during your treatment—dramatically reducing the possibility of scarring. Although each patient can react to treatment differently, the chances of scarring are considerably lower than with other laser devices. Call us today to see for yourself.
