Chris Brown Says Goodbye to Old Tattoo with Laser Tattoo Removal Treatments

Chris Brown is removing his “Karrueche” tattoo–the name of his ex girlfriend–off his body, just for Rihanna. Speculations say that he’s removing the tattoo in order to prove his devotion to Rihanna while erasing the past. This just goes to show that tattooing anyone’s name on your body is never a good idea.

It’s most likely that Chris will have to go through a series of laser tattoo removal treatments to completely remove the tattoo, as a tattoo cannot be fully removed in one session. The average is between 4-8 sessions, but it all depends on the tattoo’s ink and color. The tattoo removal process works by emitting cosmetic laser energy onto the tattoo so that it is absorbed into the ink. From there, the ink is broken into fragments and flushed out through the body’s lymphatic system. Unlike creams, this may tend to penetrate deeper and can result in very effective results.

Many Hollywood celebrities, including Miley Cyrus, Kat Von D, Lea Michele, and Eva Longoria, have experienced laser tattoo removal for unwanted tattoos. However, this treatment doesn’t come with a Hollywood price tag. At National Laser Institute, you can receive your laser tattoo removal treatment starting at just $50.

Laser tattoo removal treatments are a once-a-month process for removing tattoos. The entire appointment time takes between 5-15 minutes, depending on the size of the tattoo. In other words, it’s an in and out procedure that requires no downtime. The only thing you need to be sure of is to keep that tattoo out of the sun.

National Laser Institute is the leader in the medical aesthetics industry and has earned many outstanding reviews. Expert laser technicians perform quality laser tattoo removal treatments within a luxury medical spa. If you’d like to learn more about laser tattoo removal or National Laser Institute, please call 480.290.7366.

New Tattoo Removal Laser May Removal Tattoos Faster Than Before

It typically takes a client between 4-8 separate treatments to completely remove tattoo ink from the skin. However, a recent report has shown that laser tattoo removal may be able to remove unwanted ink faster than before. One study has used a Q-switched YAG laser on the tattoo four times a day in twenty minute intervals. Another report has used a combination of a fractional laser–typically used for removing wrinkles–with laser tattoo removal equipment for ideal results. This study has shown as much as 50% removal of ink in one session. A third study reports two treatments of laser tattoo removal in one day using different laser wavelengths.

If these treatments become regulated and safe to use on client’s unwanted tattoos, laser tattoo removal may be able to remove tattoos in as much as half of the time it does now. Laser tattoo removal treatments are already a revolutionary process when it comes to removing tattoos. Unlike creams, laser tattoo removal works by emitting cosmetic laser energy onto the skin and into the tattoo’s pigment. This energy is able to break up the ink into microscopic fractions, which then is flushed out through the body’s lymphatic system.

Laser tattoo removal treatments can be performed almost anywhere on the skin. The entire treatment process can be completed in under 10 minutes, depending on the size of your tattoo.

“The biggest drawbacks to laser tattoo removal are the time, expense, pain, and healing involved,” said Dr. Kauvar. “The newest techniques being investigated are designed to reduce the number of treatment sessions required to remove a tattoo, which should make the process more appealing.”

National Laser Institute offers laser tattoo removal treatments performed by expert laser technicians and medical professionals within a luxury medical spa setting. They have been in the medical aesthetics industry for a decade and have earned many outstanding reviews. If you’re considering laser tattoo removal and would like to learn more, call 480.290.7366.

- If the laser technician has graduated from a laser course with proper training
• How long their laser training was
• If the laser training course they attended was accredited
• How long the laser technician has been performing treatments
• If the laser technician discusses skin care goals and concerns in detail

Laser Tattoo Removal Season

Laser tattoo removal has become increasingly popular in the last several years. What some people don’t realize, though, is that laser tattoo removal has seasons. This is because after a laser tattoo removal treatment, the client cannot be exposed to the sun for several days. So, naturally, the best season to receive laser tattoo removal is in the fall and winter seasons.

Throughout the fall and winter, clients protect themselves from not only the cold, but from sun exposure as well. They do this by wearing jackets, long sleeves, and jeans. For them, it’s easier to remember to stay out of the sun if that treated area is already going to be covered up. Plus, these cold months give clients the opportunity to receive consecutive laser treatments within the fall and winter seasons.

Laser tattoo removal works by using a cosmetic laser to target the ink within the tattoo. This cosmetic energy and light is absorbed by the pigment, which breaks it up into small fragments that are then flushed out through the body’s lymphatic system. Laser treatments are unlike creams, because creams only remove the pigment on the dermal layer, and tattoos must be penetrated on both the dermal and epidermal layer to break up the pigment. Usually, clients need between 4-8 treatments for laser tattoo removal, and this can depend on size, color, and how many years the tattoo has been on the skin’s surface.

The holiday season is the perfect time to start your laser tattoo removal treatment regimen. If you’ve been meaning to rid that unwanted tattoo, give yourself the give of clear, flawless skin. We recommend National Laser Institute. They are the leader in the medical aesthetics industry and have earned many outstanding reviews as well as an A+ rating at the BBB. Professional laser technicians consult with their clients before even thinking about touching them with a laser in order to gain a sense of their skin type, skin care concerns, and skin care goals.

Laser Tattoo Removal Trendsetters of 2012

Laser tattoo removal has been a popular cosmetic laser treatment for some time. It’s a different and effective way of removing unwanted tattoos using a cosmetic laser versus a cream or gel treatment. It’s been around for quite a while and has been used by many trendsetting Hollywood celebrities, including some of the following who’ve received their treatment in 2012!

Mark Walhberg Openly admitting to receiving laser tattoo removal for his unwanted ink. He also stated that even though it wasn’t the most comfortable procedure, he was glad to be starting fresh.

Megan Fox has admitted to getting a giant Marilyn Monroe tattoo removed on her forearm.

Eva Longoria has before and after pictures of her removing a tattoo located on the back of her neck. It looks like it’s been lasered clean away!

Laser tattoo removal works by using a cosmetic laser to target the ink pigment within the skin. Once the laser energy is fired into the skin, it breaks the tattoo pigment into fragments. Those fragments are gradually flushed out through the body’s lymphatic system and the tattoo pigment fades away until it is diminished.

We recommend National Laser Institute as your #1 laser tattoo removal expert. They have both laser technicians and medical professionals who consult with you in detail about your skin or tattoo concerns and overall goals. This allows them to tailor a customized and unique treatment to meet your needs. National Laser Institute is the leader in the medical aesthetics industry and has earned many outstanding reviews.

Bioidentical Hormone Pellets

One treatment that is coming into the light of popularity is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Bioidentical hormones, unlike synthetic hormones, is one of the most natural way of replacing hormones that are lost or lacking within the body. This is because bioidentical hormones are derived from plants and are chemically compatible with the human body on a molecular level. This means less intolerable side effects and a more effective way of feeling better and more well-balanced faster.

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy isn’t just for menopausal women. In fact, men go through a period called “andropause,” where the necessary hormones their bodies need decreases. Also, many people may not even know they have a hormone imbalance. Anyone 18 years and older can receive bioidentical hormones. Typically, the symptoms include:

• Fatigue
• Depression
• Moodiness
• Low libido
• Loss of endurance
• Hot flashes
• Anxiety
• And more

Bioidentical hormones using pellet therapy is performed by a medical professional. After consulting with you and determining what hormones you need from a blood test, they will create a unique bioidentical pellet with the hormones your body needs. Insertion takes only 10 minutes with a lidocaine injection and doesn’t not require stitches, which means you are free to go afterward.

National Laser Institute offers bioidentical hormone pellets. They are the leader in the medical esthetic industry and have earned many outstanding reviews as well as an A+ rating at the BBB.

Tattoo Removal School

The cosmetic laser industry is so highly in-demand by clients wanting to improve their skin care concerns with treatments that include laser tattoo removal.

The laser targets the pigment, which is then broken up and flushed out of the body through the lymphatic system. Within a couple of treatments recommended by a laser technician, the tattoo is diminished dramatically.

Many people interested in tattoo removal school have a lot of questions about their future and their career, which is definitely understandable. That’s why we’re here to help answer some of the most common FAQs as seen below.

How long do I have to go to school for?

Not very long, actually. National Laser Institute offers a 3-day tattoo removal course, or a 2-week comprehensive laser course that covers tattoo removal and a series of other in-demand laser treatments.

What can I expect from my education?

With National Laser Institute’s tattoo removal training course, attendees can expect to learn the logistics of cosmetic lasers, how to use and fire them, how to treat different skin types and tattoo types, and receive hands-on training with scheduled clients in order to gain real world exposure to lasers.

What’s a typical tattoo removal technician salary?

Tattoo Removal Technician Salary

Laser tattoo removal has become a more highly popularized way to get rid of unwanted tattoos, especially since big celebrities, like Miley Cyrus, have been spotted coming out of treatment clinics. If you’ve been thinking about receiving laser training for tattoo removal but aren’t quite sure if you can financially make the change, consider checking into tattoo removal technician salaries. As someone who’s been in the medical aesthetics and cosmetic laser industry for a while, I can break it down pretty easily.

First of all, many laser technicians either rent their own laser equipment or work for a clinic that already provides this equipment. This is because cosmetic laser equipment is always advancing and changing for the better. It also is very, very expensive, and you don’t want to be in debt because you bought a machine a year ago now it’s time to upgrade or else lose clients to someone offering a better and more effective machine.

Secondly, many laser tattoo removal technicians charge anywhere between $100-$1000 for a single, high quality treatment. Also, one laser tattoo removal treatment is not enough to make a tattoo disappear in one session. Clients typically need between 4-12 sessions to completely fade a tattoo.

So let’s say you run your own tattoo removal shop and treat 5 clients per day. If you charge clients $250 per treatment, that’s $1,250 cash you made in just one day. Let’s say you treat 5 clients a day for 5 days. That’s $6,250 in your pocket at the end of the week!

Are people willing to pay good money to remove their tattoos with a cosmetic laser? Absolutely. Laser tattoo removal penetrates deep into the tattoo’s pigment in order to break it up into fragments and flush it out through the body’s lymphatic system. It’s a unique type of treatment that you can’t find with over the counter remedies.

National Laser Institute offers hands-on tattoo removal training for clients interested in adding tattoo removal to their skill set. They are the leader in the medical aesthetic industry and are recognized as gold standard education. Students are trained in their luxury medical spa by experts in the field of laser for the best possible medical aesthetics education.

Laser Tattoo Removal FAQ

Laser tattoo removal isn’t an uncommon process nowadays. Many clients like this type of tattoo removal treatment because it’s an effective, safe way to eliminate unwanted tattoos. However, because the details of this type of treatment can be a little hazy, we’ve compiled a list of frequently asked questions when it comes to laser tattoo removal treatments.

Does laser tattoo removal hurt?

This depends. Some medical spas offer numbing cream to prevent clients who are more sensitive to pain. However, some people who’ve experienced laser tattoo removal without numbing cream state that the treatment is uncomfortable, but bearable. It’s not the most relaxing cosmetic treatment, but the intensity of the laser has the ability to get the job complete.

How long does it take?

The treatment process is fairly short compared to other cosmetic laser treatments. Depending on the size of the tattoo, laser tattoo removal can take anywhere between 5-20 minutes.

How long will it take to completely disappear?

Again, this also depends. Clients who have a dark or black tattoo tend to find that cosmetic laser treatments remove their tattoo in only a few months. However, some colors, like aquas and greens, are little tougher to remove and can take longer. A good estimate is anywhere between 4-10 months, but consulting with your laser technician will give you a better estimate on your specific tattoo treatment plan.

Does laser tattoo removal work for all skin types?

It does because there are different types of lasers for different skin types. This prevents clients from getting blistered or burned from cosmetic lasers that are not appropriate for their skin.

How much is laser tattoo removal?

Every medical spa or doctor’s office will depend, but at National Laser Institute, a leading medical spa, laser tattoo removal starts at just $50!

National Laser Institute is the leader in the medical aesthetics industry and is committed to finding each and every client a treatment plan dedicated to providing results based on their skincare goals and desires. They have been in the health and beauty industry for over a decade and have earned many outstanding reviews.

Did you know?

There is less probability for infection with Laser Liposuction because a smaller incision is required for the procedure. Also blood loss, a common complication with traditional liposuction, is minimal since the procedure is more accurate at targeting fat, and, therefore, does less damage to surrounding blood vessels. Any blood that does leak from a damaged vessel will evaporate from the heat of the laser.
