Dr. Stewart uses the industry’s premier tattoo removal system to remove your tattoo while minimizing damage to the skin. The MedLite C6 works by causing the ink in the skin to “fracture”, and these smaller ink particles are then removed by the body’s immune system.
In the process of tattooing, the needles prick the top layer of the skin and inject ink into the underlying layer, the dermis. The ink tends to stay in the dermis because the cells are not regularly shed and replaced like they are in the top layer of the skin. The MedLite C6 can remove professional, amateur, and surgical tattoos.
The number of treatments depends on the type and amount of ink used. On average, tattoo removal requires 8-10 treatments spaced approximately 10-12 weeks apart. Black ink is the easiest to remove. Greater than 90% fading of the tattoo may be accomplished with the MedLite C6.
Unfortunately, blue, green and yellow tattoo ink is difficult to remove. Call us today and we can answer any tattoo removal questions you may have!
