What is Laser Tattoo Removal?
You may have several reasons why you no longer want your tattoo. Perhaps it represents a painful memory? Or maybe your tattoo has faded over time or it just doesn't represent who you are anymore. Despite the reason, advancements in tattoo removal technology have made it possible to lighten and maybe even eliminate the undesired tattoo. At Nirvana Med Spa in Little Rock, AR, we provide tattoo removal treatments using the high-tech Alma Harmony XL Pro laser. Compared to other tattoo removal systems, this technology produces better results and may require fewer treatments.

Laser Tattoo Removal Ideal Candidates
There are several factors that improve the success of your tattoo removal. Great candidates for laser tattoo removal:
- Have strong immune systems. A strong immune system improves the body’s ability to break down and eliminate the ink properties.
- Have a healthy lifestyle and abstain from smoking.
- Have a deep contrast between the ink color and the pigment of the skin. The greater the contrast, the greater the result.
- Have older tattoos. The older a tattoo is, the better it will respond to treatment.
Our Laser Tattoo Removal Technique
After our physicians determine that your skin is ideal for laser tattoo removal, they will prepare the treatment area by cleaning the skin and applying a numbing cream. Next, a skilled team member will pass the specialized handpiece over your skin's surface as it emits energy and pulsing laser light. The time it takes to complete the procedure varies and depends on the size of the treatment area. At times, the tattoo may require multiple sessions before obvious results are seen. During your consultation, we will provide details about follow-up sessions and when to schedule them.
What to Expect with Laser Tattoo Removal
After each session, we will apply an ointment and bandages to the skin, which will help protect the area. You may experience swelling, redness, and sensitivity. It can also feel like a sunburn, and you may have minor scabbing. To speed up the recovery process, we will provide detailed aftercare instructions. It's very important to follow these directions to ensure your skin heals. After the area has healed and if needed, we will schedule another session. We do not recommend scheduling sessions sooner than 4 – 7 weeks apart.
