Spectra™ Tattoo Removal

Tattoo on the shoulder of a young woman

Say so-long to that unwanted tattoo with Spectra laser removal in the Cobble Hill, NY

Tattoos are an ancient form of body art, which are now more popular than ever. About one in five Americans has a tattoo, or several of them. The process involves injecting ink into the deep skin layer, where it is intended to remain permanently. Unfortunately, the sentiment behind the tattoo may not be so permanent. People experience tattoo regret for many reasons, ranging from the desire to have a more professional appearance to the emotional pain of having an ex’s name emblazoned on one’s body. Residents in the Cobble Hill, NY area trust Spectra tattoo removal from Art of Natural Beauty in Brooklyn.

How does Spectra tattoo removal work?

The Spectra system is an advanced laser device that can be adjusted for a variety of uses. When used for removing tattoos, it specifically targets embedded ink, causing the pigment to break down. After treatment, the degraded ink is safely metabolized by your body. The number of laser treatments needed will depend on the size of the tattoo, and the colors of ink used.

What to expect

The procedure is generally comfortable, though some patients describe a mild stinging sensation, similar to the snapping of a rubber band. Let us know if you are concerned about discomfort, and we will apply a numbing cream prior to treatment. The entire procedure only takes around 10 to 30 minutes, depending on the size of the tattoo, and there is no downtime.

Following treatment, you may notice redness, inflammation, or a whitish cast to the skin. These are normal side effects and should fade quickly. Results develop gradually over several weeks as the pigment is dispersed. The tattoo will continue fading with each additional session.

Benefits of Spectra tattoo removal

  • Noninvasive, nonsurgical procedure
  • No downtime and minimal side effects
  • Any color or size of tattoo is treatable
  • Impressive results, with the tattoo disappearing or significantly fading after a series of laser sessions
