Laser tattoo removal is widely recognized as the best solution for removing unwanted tattoos, tattoo regret, and fading tattoos for new artwork or cover-ups. This FDA approved procedure is both safe and effective, and even more, it’s completely noninvasive. Evolution Tattoo Removal uses the latest technology and safest protocols to deliver the best tattoo removal results.
Laser tattoo removal essentially speeds up the natural fading process that is carried out by the immune system over many years. During a treatment, the laser emits flashes of light energy onto the unwanted tattoo. The trapped ink particles absorb the light energy, causing them to shatter into tiny fragmented particles that the body can more readily process, and are then naturally cleared away by the white blood cells through the bloodstream.
Over a series of treatments, the laser will continue to break down the ink particles into smaller fragments, allowing more ink to be cleared with each session until no ink is visible in the skin. Multiple treatments are the norm in laser tattoo removal as a balance needs to be found between efficient removal and not overly treating in one sitting so as to avoid damaging the skin. Generally fewer treatments are needed for patients with older, faded tattoos or patients interested in lightening their tattoo for a cover-up.
Evolution Tattoo Removal specializes in all things laser tattoo removal. Whether you want to completely remove your tattoo, remove a specific part of your tattoo, or wish to lighten a tattoo in preparation for a cover-up, we can deliver! Our clinic uses the most advanced technology to safely target the unwanted ink without harming the surrounding skin tissue.
Tattoos are designed to be permanent. To achieve this, relatively large ink particles are placed past the outer epidermis skin layer with the tattoo needle into the skin’s dermis layer. The body's imune system is alerted to these foreign particals, and starts working to remove them.
The only "problem" is the ink particles are too large for the body to naturally process and expell them, so they remain permanently trapped in the dermis. Over time, however, your body continuously attempts to break down the particles. This explains why tattoos gradually fade and lose color over time.
At Evolution Tattoo Removal we believe in using the latest and best technology to ensure our patients receive the fastest, most successful results.
As such our Portland clinic uses the industry-leading Astanza Trinity laser system. The Trinity system is comprised of two standalone systems: the Astanza Duality and Astanza Eternity. Together, these lasers create the Astanza Trinity, a triple-wavelength system that delivers full-spectrum removal across the widest range of tattoos. The Trinity combines the powers of a Q-switched Nd:YAG laser and Q-switched Ruby laser and produces three versatile wavelengths – 1064 nm, 532 nm, and 694 nm. Each of these wavelengths selectively destroys a specific group of pigments, allowing for complete ink removal on all multicolored tattoos.
Many clinics are forced to turn away customers with multicolored bright tattoos because their lasers do not offer a wavelength that can effectively target more “resistant” shades. Only the 694 nm ruby wavelength is capable of treating vibrant blue and green inks, and when used in combination with our 1064 nm and 532 nm wavelengths, no colors are left untreatable.
