Is Clean Slate tattoo removal safe?

How does Clean Slate Cutera Enlighten Pico laser tattoo removal work?

Lasers work by using short pulses which break up areas of pigment, making it easier for your body to absorb and remove the ink. The quick pulses ensure your skin stays cool and comfortable.  We have 6 combinations of different wavelengths to tackle all colors and all skin types. It does take a series of treatments which varies from person to person.  On average 4-6 but this depends upon each tattoo and how your body removes the ink.

Does Clean Slate work on all tattoos?

Yes, Clean Slate can fully remove just about any tattoo, including professional and homemade tattoos. In the rare case that a tattoo cannot be fully removed, it can be partially removed or lightened.

There is a lot of variability in inks used and the amount of ink each tattoo artist injects into the skin.

Thinking about getting rid of your tattoo? Find out how we could help removal

While tattoos can be a great self-expression for many, there are other people who regret their decision to get a tattoo. Sometimes they just simply grew out of the design or they don’t think the tattoo represents them anymore. If this sounds like you then you may be wondering how our St. Louis, MO, vein specialist, Dr. Norman Bein, may be able to help you eliminate your unwanted body art.

Our St. Louis surgeon isn’t new to tattoo removal. In fact, we’ve been helping countless patients remove their tattoos for about nine years. Of course, we are always looking for faster, easier and painless laser tattoo removal options for our patients. This is why we are proud to offer the Cutera laser, which provides fast and effective tattoo removal results.

In the past it was often hard or nearly impossible to remove pigmented tattoos. Perhaps you’ve talked to other specialists in the past about having your tattoo removed through laser therapy but found out that it wouldn’t be as effective with colored ink as it would with black ink.

This can be a rather frustrating discovery, but thanks to our Cutera laser, we are now able to tackle a variety of tattoos of all different colors. Since different ink colors create different sized particles under the skin we need a laser system that will create different wavelengths for which to remove as many of these different sized molecules as possible. This is exactly how the Cutera laser works.

You’ve probably also heard that not all laser treatments work as well with different skin types. This is also not an issue with the Cutera system. We can treat all skin types safely and effectively to get rid of your unwanted tattoo easily.

Plus, this powerful system ensures that you don’t have to come in for as many treatment sessions as you would with other laser tattoo removal systems. Being able to provide the treatment our patients want more efficiently is what we are all about. Removing a tattoo shouldn’t be difficult. Cutera makes it simple.
