What is the laser tattoo removal process?

After filling out our application form or having been referred to Unbound Miami by our selected partners, we will then proceeded to scheduling a preliminary consult with the survivor. The consult will dictate the method of removal for the branding.  Most cases utilize laser tattoo removal provided by Miami Ink Off.

How does laser tattoo removal work? Is it painful?

The machine used at Miami Ink Off is the Cutera Enlighten Laser, with dual wavelength and dual pulse duration, producing superior results.

Tattoos are removed by lasers that emit short pulses of intense light that pass through the top layers of the skin to where the ink is located. The light breaks the ink into tiny, dust-like particles that are readily absorbed by your body, and eliminated through its natural processes.

Anesthesia is used to provide a pain-free experience.

Why are multiple sessions required when using laser tattoo removal?

Tattoo ink is deposited deep in the skin. In order to reach all of the ink in the skin, multiple treatment sessions are needed for clearance. Depth size and color of the tattoo also impact the number of treatments needed.

During the preliminary consultation, our experts will predict the number of sessions required for removal. The number of treatments vary depending on the age, composition, depth, and the color of the ink, as well as the size of the tattoo.

Are there any side affects following the laser tattoo removal treatment?

Most patients experience redness immediately following the treatment. Although everyone responds differently to treatments, side affects are temporary. Patients generally return to regular activities immediately following the treatment.
