Medlite C6 is a Q-switched ND Yag laser machine with record-breaking results when it comes to removing that tattoo you regret. This technology sends laser beams which are absorbed by the tattoo ink, which is then shattered and cleared by the body.
Black ink is the earliest to fade and in general results are very good. Coloured ink is more difficult to remove however nothing is impossible as this machine can be set at various wavelengths specific for different pigments.
Each tattoo would require multiple sessions. It is recommended to leave 4 to 6 weeks between sessions. The number of sessions varies according to the location of the tattoo (the closer to the heart the faster it is removed), the colour (black is removed the fastest), the depth of the injected ink, whether it has been layered, and the type of ink used by the artist.
Various modalities of pain-relief can be used during the procedure, such as chilled air, anaesthetic cream, or injection of local anaesthetic around the area to be treated. Fear not, the procedure is very fast, with treatments of small tattoos lasting seconds.
If you intend to cover up your current tattoo, you can opt to attend less sessions in order to lighten, rather than completely remove your tattoo.
Start your sessions now, the earlier you start, the sooner it will be erased.
