The same laser machine that’s used for ClearLift treatments can also safely and effectively remove unwanted tattoos. Even though tattoos are growing in popularity, about 20% of people with them say they’ve considered tattoo removal for one reason or another. The Harmony XL PRO can eliminate dark and multi-colored tattoos; however, it works best on darker pigments like black and blue ink. The treatment works by vibrating the ink particles trapped within the skin, which breaks them down. Then, as the skin heals, the immune system safely and naturally flushes away these smaller particles. This causes the tattoo to fade and, eventually, disappear.
No anesthesia is required for the procedure, but a topical anesthetic can be used, so you stay comfortable during the procedure. Most people describe the treatment as similar to a rubber band being snapped against the skin. Most tattoo removal procedures require several sessions to fully remove the tattoo, and you should follow your post-treatment care instructions from Coastal Aesthetics. Some redness immediately after treatment is normal, but you can return to normal activities after your session if you choose.
