Unwanted tattoos don’t have to be a permanent reminder of things you would rather forget. Laser tattoo removal is a non-invasive way to safely and effectively remove unwanted tattoos. This treatment is for full or partial removal to allow for a new tattoo to be applied. All laser tattoo removal treatments are administered by our certified, experienced laser technicians, using only medical-grade CSA-approved laser equipment.
At Electra Laser, we use only medical-grade, CSA-approved laser equipment. All our technicians have received training specific to Alexandrite Laser-pumped-laser and Q-switched YAG Laser Technologies. The Alex Tri-Vantage’s leading-edge technology enables us to provide outstanding, efficient and safe service to our clients.
Tattoos consist of thousands of tiny particles of pigment (ink) that have been injected into the dermis, which are suspended in the skin. Normally, the healing process and cell turnover remove small foreign particles from the skin. However, tattoo pigment particles are too large to be removed during these natural processes.
Laser tattoo removal uses technology in which a high-powered, very short, pulsed beam of light is delivered at specific wavelengths—1064nm (nanometres), 755nm or 532nm. The beam passes through the skin and breaks up tattoo pigment particles of all colours and shades into smaller particles. These particles are then gradually eliminated through the body’s lymphatic system. Eventually, the tattoo fades in much the same way that a bruise fades over time.
